10 Most American-Made Cars Of 2012

NEW YORK ( MainStreet) -- An American-made car is only as American as the sum of its parts.  

Buying from a U.S.-based maker is no guarantee of how "American" a car is these days, but neither is the percentage of American-made parts in that car if the vehicle isn't assembled here. Even the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration freely admits there's no such thing as a 100% American car.  

Twenty years ago, Congress passed the American Automobile Labeling Act requiring cars to have labels specifying their percentage of U.S./Canadian parts, the country of assembly and the country of origin for the engine and transmission. The NHTSB has compiled lists of these vehicles for each model year to help consumers who care about such things get more homegrown product for their money.  

The following are the 10 vehicles assembled in the U.S. using the most U.S. and Canadian parts:
