    I agree. I own a Ram truck, seats 6(not that carry that many people) and it pulls my car trailer no problem along with the jet ski and quad trailers

    No a quad cab(pictured below) I don't really need the mega cab, but might have to upgrade to 2500/3500 if we decide to get a two car trailer(for my firebird and either the 55 p/u or the cobra replica). But they do t make the mega cab any more, it's more for when your kids are bigger, I'm only 23 and don't plan on having any kids any time soon, even told my Gf don't expect a ring anytime soon but that was easy as she isn't in a rush eithe

    Subarus are built in Indiana, don't know about the others. I do know that there is no such thing as an American Car anymore. If you look at the parts list, the majority of parts are now made overseas.

    Except for the three Assembly plants across the border. One in Ontario, Canada and two in Mexico. The Chevrolet Silverado, has just 61 percent domestic content.

    That is true notez, but the point is that Chevy is an American Company, Subaru is not.
    Nor is Honda, Toyota, BMW, and they all have assembly plants here.
