The Nissan skit.


FUTURE_OF_GM

Recommended Posts

I ran into a friend of mine last night and he presented a business card showing that he worked for the local Nissan dealer. Obviously he doesn't know that I am such a domestic car enthusiast and supporter.

My other friend I was hanging out with said "What the hell man? Why don't you sell american cars?" because he knew that I would probably shred the guy if he didn't inject a little comedy.

The guy says, and I quote: "Actually, 70% of Nissans parts are manufactured in america and the point of final assmebly is also in america. So, pretty much the last time Nissan was a japanese car was 2000."

My jaw dropped and the guy finished with "People are really concerned about that now."

In repsonse, I could barely choke out (Over anger) "Wow! It's great that they've rehearsed you so well on that script, eventhough it's bull$h!."

He, feeling a little shocked I guess, then said "Hey man, I just sell the cars."

*** I guess the asian companies are now mobilizing their salesmen to pretty much lie enough to displace the domestics as domestic manufacturers. And, of course, we all know that the average american will buy this hook, line and sinker. It makes me so angry that the asians are doing things like this on a dealership level to essentially REMOVE Detroit from the equation. It's not even enough to have preferential treatment in the media, or a public that already considers them as not capable of failure as well as products that aren't much if any better than Detroit products. Now, they want to take Detroit out of the equation completely (In the mind of the consumer) ***

He's been misled and confused. Most Nissan-brand models are produced in North America...only the 350Z and Murano are imported. Of the US-built vehicles, I would bet that they have more than 70% domestic content, but to say that "70% of Nissans parts are manufactured in america" or "pretty much the last time Nissan was a japanese car was 2000" would be in error.

Having a direct hand in the Holocaust torturing and killing millions of innocent men, women and children based on nothing more than prejudice and hatred (not to mention anyone who dared to stand aganist them) is as bad a selling a Toyota...

That may be the most retarded thing I have ever read on here.

Both traitors to their countries as far as I am concerned, the degree makes no difference to me. Now remember I am not American, but German.

There is a huge difference between a company that has sleezy business practices and an army that slaughtered thousands of millions of innocent people and threatened the free world.

Nissan includes Infiniti, as both brands are sold here in the US......and their domestic content is 46%.

End of story.......you can't spin it and say "I was just talking about the ones made here".

Nearly all Nissan-branded vehicles are built in North America. A Nissan dealer doesn't sell Infinitis...so it does matter.

Most German soldiers in WWII were regular dudes like you and I.

((YEP!!)) Just ask those American solders who were rebuilding Germany after WWII and how they were treated by the "SCARRY" German people. They grew to LOVE US!! And dont think that the JAPS dident know how to TORTURE people as badly IF NOT MORE SADISTICLY then ANYONE!!

This is making me sick...

I'm not getting into a pissing match of who commited the worse crimes to humanity.

Once again, people feeling the need to drudge up the past has shot another thread to hell.

BTW, racial slurs don't help to bolster your argument. It just makes you look ignorant. Just a heads up.

Yes, complete nonsense... you can't equate selling merchandise to war crimes.. where a consumer product is made ultimately DOESN'T MATTER..what counts is that it is a quality product for a fair price.

Some people are just too bias and ignorant to know the difference.

We need to get back to the topic at hand. Yes, they are using this to bury Detriot and it is working brilliantly.

Here in Ohio where Accords and Civics are made I am told by lots of people that an Accord is more American than a Chevy or Pontiac.

What can detroit do to change people's perceptions?
