As for auto parts quality will very no matter where it is made.
Just because it is not made here does make it junk and if it is here does not make it bullet proof.
I deal much with part quality at work and know first hand the quality of many parts is no longer based on orrigin.
What scares me is too many people assume what is made in China and Mexico is crap while often it is as good as anywhere else. That is how they are stealing our lunch and eating it right now.
Many plants anymore employ in house Americans that over see quality control and keep them from short cuts.
Trust me if Mexico can make you 70 inch tv and China you smart phone they can make a simple auto part.
I am all buy American but never assume on quality anymore. I am in no way in support of imported parts but we all need to be aware they have in most areas caught up with us in quality and pose an even more of a threat than they have.
