    I'll I've been seeing since the super bowl are the same TV commercials
    for the "200" (formerly known as Sebring).

    Where the hell is the new re-designed 300?

    Anyone seeing any advertizing for it?

    Does it even exist? Do any dealers have it?

    Saw a commercial for the 300C on Fox News this morning but it may have
    been a drop-in on satellite from the Canadian satellite provider.
    Gotta see it again to be sure. In any event, it kind of stretches the
    "Imported from Detroit" theme just a little.

    Have seen a new 300 commercial for a couple weeks now, some clothing
    designer in NYC is driving it and it does continue the "Imported from
    Detroit" theme. Dealers in Charlotte NC now have several on their lots.

    That's the stretch...imported from just outside Toronto. The 200 at
    least comes from Sterling Heights.

    Go figure....my 2 daughters Nissans were made here in the states. My 2
    Chevys were made in Canada and My PT Cruiser in Mexico. My wife's
    Infiniti was the only thing made in the country it's from.

    Nothing to 'go figure'. It's the international economy where 'origin' is of
    little import.

    What really matters is
    - Is it good/do you like it?
    - Does it do the job?
    - Can you get it serviced?
    - Who gives a monkey's about the rest?

    Rob improperly top-poasted and full-quoted:
    Lexus has four factories operating in Japan and one in Cambridge,
    Ontario. Lexus began building vehicles in Japan in 1989. Its Canada
    plant opened in September 2003. The RX sport utility vehicle, Lexus'
    best-selling SUV, is assembled in Canada. All its other vehicles are
    made in Japan.

    As of 2008, there are differing reports that say that only the RX 350
    model is made / assembled in Canada. More recent information says that
    only the ES350, RX350/450h are made in Canada.

    I don't know if any of these various 350/450 model are only built in
    Canada (for the entire north-american market) or if some of these exact
    same models are also built in Japan (and possibly exported to other
    destinations in the US/Canada). I also don't know if any of the
    Canadian-built 350/450 models are exported to destinations outside of
    north america.

    When you think about it, any 300's that are trailered or brough in by
    rail from Ontario into the US will make their first entry into the US in
    Detroit (or at least Chrysler could claim that their import paperwork
    was handled in Detroit).

    So the phrase "Imported from Detroit" could actually be technically

    Sure. Makes my earlier point about its being a bit of a stretch,

    Except that the germans running Daimler raped and fucked Chrysler until
    it was practically a dead corporation with a pathetic product line and
    no engineering or design talent.

    My Scion tC was made entirely in Japan and sold ONLY in the states. Go
    figure that one.
