Why Honda likes `made in America.'

October 1993
U.S. News & World Report;10/4/93, Vol. 115 Issue 13, p24
Reports that the strong yen has driven Honda to announce that it will accelerate plans to produce all its Accords and Civics for the American market in the United States by 1996. The move is less radical than it first seems, since Honda already makes 86% of its Accords and 91% of its Civics in the United States.
