i am sure someone said the same thing when VW built their plant in Mexico

the fiat 500, which is made in mexico for the US market, is also made in Europe for the european market, there is a difference in quality
i've owned the mexican built one
and i have ridden in a european built one many times
their is a tangible difference in quality
I would assume the difference is in the quality control

there is a reason why people pay a premium for german made cars
vs korean/japanese made cars that have better options and are cheaper
