Keith Gilabert, “Made in America”

Japanese auto manufacturing made a significant impact on the American car market in the 1970s with vast improvements in quality, reliability and fuel economy.

In 1982, with only 5% of the car market, Honda Accord became the first car from a Japanese manufacturer to be produced in the United States when production commenced in Ohio at Honda's Marysville Auto Plant. The Accord has achieved considerable success, especially in the United States, in 1990 the Accord sedan unseated the Ford Taurus as the best-selling car in America.
