Automotive industry in North America[edit]

This article should be merged with Automobile industry in the United States into Automotive industry in North America, because the Canadian industry and American industry are more or less one in the same. The article should explain the history of automobiles and production on the continent, past and current manufacturing plants, and imported cars. Production figures should be up to date and listed much like the OICA chart in Automotive industry to remain organized and easily navigable. There should also be separate sections, one for Canada, one of the United States, one for Mexico, and one for Central America. Viddea9 (talk) 00:24, 16 April, 2009 (UTC)

The articles should remain separate. There is no need to combine them. Should we merge the articles on France, Germany, Britain, Sweden, and Italy into a European automotive industry? Canadian auto parts supplier will gain partial control of Opel soon. Ford and GM also produce in South America. The American automobile industry includes Brazil and South America. Should we combine Japan, China, Russia, and India into the Asian automobile industry? Thomas Paine1776 (talk) 16:15, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
Most auto companies see North America as one market, the US and Canada are more or less one industry. The largest manufacturers in Canada are General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, and Toyota; the same as the US. Viddea9 (talk) 14:31, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
They should be kept separate. While this a nearly-useless article in its current form, the automotive industry is one of Canada's largest contributors to its manufacturing GDP and the Ontario automotive corridor from Windsor to Oshawa is a major factor in Canada's economy. Because of its importance to the Canadian economy, there are many issues around the automotive industry that would need to be addressed from a national perspective. The current article doesn't do that, but that would be better addressed by improving the article than by getting rid of it and having some token reference in a North American article. --Walor (talk) 22:09, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Keep separate: per above. Expand Canada's article. JEN9841 (talk) 12:11, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

I work for a company that makes websites for both US and Canadian car dealers, and they are definitely separate markets. Everything from pricing, to incentives, to available models differs between the two countries. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.216.208.251 (talk) 23:07, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Then what next? Merge Canada with the United States? You would love that, wouldn't you? NorthernThunder (talk) 20:28, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

NO!!!! We would NOT!!! Al Cook USA — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.32.40.16 (talk) 12:59, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
