    Reports: GM to export China-built cars to US

    Buy Ameri.....Chinese?

    SHANGHAI – General Motors Corp. plans to begin exports of vehicles made in China to the United States within two years, ramping up sales to more than 50,000 by 2014, reports said Wednesday.

    A spokeswoman for GM in China did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the reports, which were said to be based on a company recovery plan given to U.S. lawmakers.

    GM intends to sell 17,335 made-in-China passenger cars in the U.S. market by 2011, the Shanghai Securities News and other reports said. By 2014 exports would triple to more than 51,000, it said.

    Huh. I guess when we buy a GM vehicle, we're buying Chinese-Canadian-Mexican!

    I work in the auto industry, for a tier 1 supplier. Please folks, help me keep my job...buy Toyota. We sell more parts to Toyota than to GM and Chrysler combined(and we lack any contracts with Ford, which management is regretting right now), and those parts are held to a significantly higher quality standard...and we ship our parts to a sub assembly factory in the US for Toyota, whereas it is Canada for GM and I think Chrysler as well.

    The whole buy American = buy big 3 is so outdated these days.

    If I had to pick any American car maker I would choose Ford cause they don't pull asshat moves like GM does.

    But otherwise, Honda and Toyota are my favorite. Help Redress keep his job.

    I think the idea that an American car maker exports from China is more American than anything.

    Most of the American in name only car makers have left the U.S. for production.

    While most of the foreign car makers are coming to the U.S. for production.

    Hell Fiat is buying GM, that makes them Italian.
