Made In The U.S.A.

Nissan used to be Datsun. Now it’s American.

Thanks to my newest readers, Elon and Bryn, for continuing commentary and inspiration.

Bryn, the car expert, commented on my car conundrum by offering a link to a great article at Edmunds. Here’s an excerpt:

Don’t tell anyone in Canton—where Nissan builds the Altima, Armada, Quest and Titan—that Nissan’s domestic product isn’t American. The Mississippi plant puts food in American mouths, and the plant’s profits underwrite an increasing amount of Nissan design and engineering in the States.

So is that Nissan an “American” car? Sure sounds like it.
