    @Wiliam: "Assembled" 51% in Fremont with 100% Japanese parts by a Japanese  Co, makes them Japanese.

      My Mazda was assembled in Mexico of Japanese and German parts. It Is NOT: "Mexican". Still, Japanese.

      Why are so many still so Clueless? Buy an OEM  Part for your H or T.,  Read  what it says on it:" "Nippon Denso" , Kayria,   Japan. And Japanese characters...

    I don't dislike  the Tesla  Company or car;  I just wish they were more affordable.

    Their drivers are Snooty.
