Last I checked Chrysler's headquarters was in Auburn Hills, MI and the Cruze was primarily designed in Korea by Daewoo- so I assume GM is not an American company either?? I find it amusing that owner's of Cruzes (including myself) think the Dart looks bland when one of the biggest complaints of the Cruze when it first came out was it's design blandness.
Sometimes I think this forum is like walking into a dealer lot where 99% of the salespeople know nothing about the cars they sell. I will admit that I am really pissed off at GM with my Cruze problems right now so I am very ornery and if I can dump my Cruze the Dart is the car I will be getting so I'm a little offensive about Chrysler- plus I have numerous family members (including my father) who lives in NW Ohio who work for Chrysler. The only reason I have a Cruze is that I needed a good economy car for work and at the time my only option from Chrysler was a Caliber which was horrible. I had thought I was doing something good for the economy and the area I live in by supporting GM but I am really regretting it right now.
