Global parts.

Five years ago we decided to treat ourselves to a Cadillac automobile, and it turned out to be one of our best investments ever. At 50-some thousand miles the car looks and performs as though it were still new, so you can understand how disappointed we were when the car took to fits of stalling at idle.

The dealership finally decided the trouble was in the crankshaft position sensor, and as soon as they could get one, we would be on our way.

That sounded pretty good until they announced the part is made in Germany, as is much of this car, and it would be weeks before they could get a sensor here for us.

For us, it lends a whole other meaning to Mr. Grigg's fine "Global Motors" essay in THE NEW AMERICAN of May 16, 2005.
