If you live in America, do you think you should buy an American car before buying an import?

It's America, so you can do what you want.
I think it's a wash these days, with so many foreign automakers operating manufacturing plants here in the United States, employing American autoworkers. We have a Toyota Tundra full production plant here and it employs a large number of people. That's American people benefiting directly from the work and profits of a foreign automaker.
Further, the foreign automakers don't bleed taxpayers dry by taking Federal bailout funds. The only U.S. automaker who didn't need or accept Federal bailout funds? Ford.

Our Government didn't give it's citizens a full bailout like the Auto Industry. I will buy the car of my choosing. That said ... Is any an American Car truly American? I say NO! I'll bet that a large number of parts are made elsewhere, then assembled here.
Now I feel like upgrading my Vespa!

I understand that alot of the things we buy are built overseas, but i think with the number of American car company's we should buy a American car before a foreign car....we help out other country's so much without realizing it, especially considering we are in the second great depression.

In my house we use Japanese cars since we don't like the quality, over use of fuel(American cars consumes more fuel than Japanese cars and European cars and even when having less "force" and speed) and the consumer service is un-efficient in the dealers while Hyundai and Toyota have free service like oil replace for five years.
I'm an "American" citizen and I think buying an american car is going to be a waste of money ^^
