Yes,the hatches are assembled in Coahuila. I've actually been by the plant when I lived in Mexico while we were on a motorcycle trip but I didn't own my Cruze back then. I think folks would be surprised at the number of assembly plants in Mexico. I counted a few years ago and the number was~20 IIRC. And have been there for decades.Well, this is an old thread. But yes, the hatchbacks are made in Mexico, because that's where they are made for global sales. At launch, it really didn't make sense to spend extra money retooling Lordstown for what might not be a very large percentage of sales. If I recall, the hatch makes up about 20% of Cruze sales, so it still doesn't make sense, financially, to add extra tooling to Lordstown to make it here - especially with low profit margins on cars.
Well you should be happy now that your boy thinks he has a bi-lateral agreement with them. I wonder if the subject of who's not paying for the wall came up to please his acolytes.They've been there since NAFTA screwed us.
The young generation doesn't want to own cars, period.
