When Labels Lie: Made In The USA Claims Aren’t Always True

Many customers who choose to buy items that are made in America are attempting to support American jobs, and they deserve to be told the truth.  However, the Made in the USA Foundation recently filed complaints with the Federal Trade Commission, alleging that Ford and Chrysler mislead consumers by advertising that their cars were “made in America” when, in fact, the cars were imported from foreign countries.

Ford advertises that its Fusion is an American car, although the car is actually made at a plant in Sonara, Mexico.  Similarly, Chrysler brags that the Chrysler 300 is “Imported from Detroit”.  However, the Chrysler 300 is assembled in Canada using an engine built in Mexico.

If you purchased a Ford Fusion, Chrysler 300 or other car because the car company told you it was made in the USA, and you have since learned the car company’s claim was false, you may have been a victim of consumer fraud.  Please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights.
