    Made in America? Hard to tell - By Jim Mateja and Rick Popely, Chicago Tribune via The Boston Globe
    Foreign-based manufacturers like Toyota can identify models like the Camry as ``domestic' cars because they meet the government yardstick of having 75 percent or more of their parts made in the United States or Canada.

    But the Automobile Trade Policy Council, a lobbying group funded by GM, Ford, and DaimlerChrysler AG, says the domestic content of all Toyota vehicles sold in the United States -- including imported models -- is 48 percent. Honda's is 59 percent and Nissan's 45 percent.

    For GM and Ford, the domestic parts content is 73 percent, and for DaimlerChrysler, it's 72.
