Crossovers made from January 17-25 of this year might suffer from a bad weld on the front left strut's stabilizer link.

"Made in America." It's a term we can apply to an increasing number of models from import brands each year. From family sedans to pickup trucks, overseas automakers are increasingly building vehicles in North America; and not just for our market, but for other parts of the world.
