I work for Patrick Hyundai and one of our Hyundai reps told us about this. I just don't know about forcing companies to make things in the US. Yes, the jobs would be great but American Autoworkers make some $40 per hour and Mexican autoworkers make $6. Cars from the US will be more expensive! I just don't know.

Another thought on this. If Hyundai/Kia build in the United States, I'd put money on it just for production of vehicles of vehicles to the US or North America. The reason is simple, if you look at the history of Kia offroading, you'll note they have plants all over the world. I think this announcement from them may just to appease our president and his drive to keep jobs here in America. Can't fault him for that.
