AWOLsoldier - Just because parts are made in the same country or even in the same plant does not make those parts equal. I don't think I said anything about the parts being marketed by their "perceived" quality. I have noticed that perceived quality eventually lines up with actual quality. I hope you are happy with your car. I have owned most of the cars out there at one time or another so I do have some basis for my opinions.
You're right, nobody in the US ever associates quality with brand name.
