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

Nonetheless, since Congress passed the American Automobile Labeling Act in 1992, it has required cars to identify the percentage of U.S./Canadian parts; country of origin for the engine and transmission; and, country of assembly.

So for all who are interested, has compiled a list of the 10 vehicles assembled in the U.S. that use the most U.S. and Canadian parts... and the results may surprise you!

Listed here in reverse order:
10. 2012 Buick Enclave / Chevrolet Traverse:
Assembled in Lansing, Mich., Made in USA: 76 percent.
9. 2012 Jeep Liberty:
Assembled in Toledo, OH; Made in USA: 76 percent.
8. 2012 Chrysler 200 Convertible:
Assembled in Sterling Heights, Mich., Made in USA: 79 percent.
7. 2012 Lincoln Navigator:
Assembled in Louisville, KY; Made in USA: 80 percent.
6. 2012 Ford Expedition:
Assembled in Louisville, KY; Made in USA: 80 percent.
5. 2012 Honda Crosstour:
Assembled in East Liberty, OH; Made in USA: 80 percent.
4. 2012 Honda Accord:
Assembled in Marysville, OH; Made in USA: 80 percent.

(Note: says here that "there may be cars with more American parts, but few cars say as much about the state of America as the Accord.")

3. 2012 Toyota Sienna:
Assembled in Princeton, IN. Made in USA: 80 percent.
2. 2012 Chevrolet Express / GMC Savana
Assembled in Wentzville, MO; Made in USA:82 percent.
1. 2012 Toyota Avalon:
Assembled in Georgetown, KY; Made in USA: 85 percent.

And believe it or not, Toyota actually makes a car with even more American parts than the Avalon. It's the 95-percent Matrix, but since it's assembled in Canada, that disqualifies it.
