The Cars.com survey revealed many U.S. consumers want to support their neighbors and buy American cars, trucks and SUVs. Notably, 19 percent of survey respondents believe it is unpatriotic to buy vehicles that are not American-made. Additional survey insights include:

  • 28 percent of respondents would only consider an American manufacturer when purchasing a vehicle.
  • Before buying a car, two-thirds (66 percent) of Americans say they first find out where a car is built or where its automaker is headquartered.
  • 82 percent of respondents believe that buying American-made vehicles will create more jobs in the U.S.

The Honda Odyssey minivan and Honda Ridgeline pickup truck round out the top three. While Honda is a Japan-based automaker, both of these cars are built in Alabama with high domestic content and U.S.-sourced drivetrains.
