2. The Corolla and Tacoma been union-made up to now,
but with the closure of the NUMMI facility that will cease to be.

The Saturn Aura, Sky, and Outlook are UAW-produced.

6. I just posted the list of 2010 UAW or CAW built cars
It reflects the absence of cars that GM is no longer producing

3. Take a gander at this
http://blog.aflcio.org/2009/09/19/have-we-got-a-deal-fo... /

The list: http://www.uaw.org/uawmade/auto/2010/index.cfm

The Saturn Aura and Outlook are on the list, as are some Toyota Corollas and Tacomas, though that will change as Nummi is shut down.

7. Good - I wouldn't buy a Toyota if they gave me money to do so.
I'll stick with American-made, America-profited cars, myself.

9. Let me correct that for you....
I'll stick with American-made, international shareholder-profited cars, myself. = Ford, GM, Chrysler

As opposed to....
American-made, international shareholder-profited cars = Toyota, Honda, etc...

10. Saturns were union-made when I bought mine in 2005
That was one of several reasons I bought it. Also, it's a fine, dependable car. :)
