Cars.com supplemented the 2019 AMI with a poll that was fielded on June 3, which studied attitudes on purchasing American, including “how much do shoppers really care whether a car is American made?” The survey revealed 66 percent of the respondents are into buying a car that contributes to the country’s economy although it varies by age.

Seventy-one percent from the 35 to 54 age group indicated that it matters that the vehicle they purchase contributes substantially to America’s economy while only 61 percent from the lower age group 18-34 indicated the same.

The 2019 American-Made Index surveyed over 1,000 participants from an independent, third-party provider.
