Our 2001 Jetta's tranny literally dropped to the floor of our garage after pulling up the driveway and putting it in Park.. Was after our 20 mile drive home from the dealership. Car had less than 25mi on it. Made w/ pride in Mexico.

Was pretty shocked to see this on the front page as well.. Ugh.

I am not against the counter-argument of it being about the manufacture & process vs the location and employee wages, etc., but based on other things which are manufactured in Mexico, including vehicles... yeah....
