Cummins in Nissans and Toyotas

I'm sure there's already been a thread about this but I'm interested in everyone's opinion on Cummins' current contract with Nissan and its pending contract with Toyota. It pisses me off because Cummins has been true to American companies and now they are caving in to Japanese business in the United States. Any other opinions on this?

Toyota provides lots of jobs to honest American citizens. Their business model is impeccable and I consider them just as American as GM and Chrysler.

Hope that don't get me lynched

Haha, I'm half with you. Still, they are Japanese based and take buyers away from American native companies like Ford Dodge and Chevy. Plus, Toyota makes the Prius and Nissan makes the Leaf, lol.

How do you feel about Ford being U.S. based and allowing manufacturing in Mexico/Canada?

It bothers me a little but as long as they keep making the Super Duty's in Kentucky, I'll be a Ford guy. It seems like all of the big 3 is going to Mexico to manufacture cars.

How does that differ from developing an engine overseas and manufacturing in the states?

Just playing the catalyst here

Do you work for Toyota man? Haha. I just don't think that companies that were founded in Japan, most of their vehicles imported here from Japan, should have the legendary Cummins name on them. You should only find Cummins under the hood of an F650/750, Ram, tractor, semi, etc., not a Tundra, lol.

I'm for it! I'd probably buy one, too if the trucks are reliable.

Look at it as one more push for Ford to offer a diesel F-150. If they refuse to do so then they deserve to loose sales to the competition. Of course, I'm Canadian so the patriotism factor is less of an issue for me. Toyota probably employs as many people here as any other auto company.

I guess you guys are right. I still hate Toyota because the majority of people who drive them are liberal pole smoking eco wussies.
