    What difference does it make? Jeep isn't owned by an American company as it is now.

    As long as it's still made in America I'm fine with it- maybe even if it isn't idk lol. I suppose tho even if the sale happened and manufacturing moved to china there would be plenty of JLs still made here in the us by the time all that went down

    IF this happens, I highly doubt that the JL will be effected or moved to China or at least, in the foreseeable future. It just wouldn't make sense. It's future vehicles that could be effected.

    The owner doesn't matter. What matters are the teams in R&D and design. Honda is a good example. Tons of vehicles built in the US and its North American headquarters is in Torrance/Carson.

    It would absolutely affect my purchase. I buy American whenever possible and what’s more American than a Jeep?

    I'd still buy one. Like it was said earlier Jeep isn't American owned anymore anyway so what difference does it make? As long as they still turn out a quality product I'm willing to spend money on it.

    This would probably be the straw that broke the camel's back for me. I think I'd jump ship and not buy Jeeps any more. We'll see what happens though.
