  1. David Sprowl Says:

    Few treaties last forever. I agree with the “we’ll see” attitude. I do not agree with MEMA’s view point. I have state for years that I have yet to notice ANY product once made in the USA become any more cost effective once it was shifted out of our boarders. Some in our country note that in other countries workers are used for cheap and the goods sold else where for fat profits. Yet we gobble up those items and turn our collective heads. IMHO the US has lost it’s collective pride in the term “Made In America”.

  2. Chuck Grenci Says:

    If NAFTA ends up being fair (to all parties) I think that should be their goal; probably easier said then done, so I guess that’s what is going to be negotiated. I don’t think President Trump is going to give anything away but I sure hope he pushes for parity to all concerned.

    The new Buick Regal Wagon; wow, nice, still an uphill battle for sales but looks sharp to me.

  3. G.A.Branigan Says:

    I think,and believe that Trump will make a deal that is fair to us.I don’t give a damn about canada or mexico.

  4. Lisk Says:

    I’m not sure what Buick’s sales goals are but I hope they’re not too lofty. I like the look of the Regal but I think any sedan is a tough sale right now. As nice as the Lucerne is, it’s been a flop. There might be some early adopters for the car but I’m not sure how the hatch and wagon are going to be accepted long term.

  5. Kit Gerhart Says:

    I’m wait and see regarding any trade negotiations. Trump has found that “making deals” isn’t as easy as he thought. I just hope he doesn’t start an all-out trade war, because everyone would lose.

    I like the Regal wagon, but unless vehicle tastes change, it won’t sell well in America. That’s unfortunate.

  6. Ziggy Says:

    I had to laugh out loud when listening to the part of the show about how Chinese buyers are so concerned about interior car smell and their health considering that breathing in the outside air in China is probably 1000 times worse than anything in the new car interior. At least the interior air of the new car isn’t visible, something you can’t say about the air around most large Chinese cities. Get real.

  7. Kit Gerhart Says:

    I guess the high tech cabin air filters take care of the outside air. You can’t get out of your car, though.

    I was talking to a young car buyer.
    I asked why she did not look at BUICK.
    She said all the Buick names are old.
    She would like to see the REGAL=R3
    Lucerne= L4
    Do what they do in Europe.
