So it appears you no longer have any qualms about the quality of US-built cars. At least not US-made Toyotas.
I have to say though, you got a lease deal on that Camry that might be the best lease deal I have ever seen on ANY car: $156.01 a month for 3 years, 18,000 miles (a year?). That is simply incredible. That was with no money down, right? That beats even buying a used car, e.g. something cheap like a made-in-Korea 2006 Sonata GLS 4-cylinder.

I put down $2,300 PLUS another $500 for the Gap Insurance to get the $156.01 per month and the 3 years/ 18,000 miles for my 2010 Camry LE automatic.
I spent over 4 hours at the Toyota dealership trying to get a good deal. I initially wanted to put only $1,000 down plus the Gap Insurance. After 4 hours of dealing, I initially finalized the deal at $1,500 down with 3 years/ 18,000 miles for $169 per month plus the Gap Insurance. My girl wanted to get the payment down into the low to mid $150's, so we put an extra $615 down ($2,115) PLUS $500 for the Gap Insurance PLUS $185 more down for the difference in the sticker price of the vehicle that we chose because it cost $185 more than what we anticipated due to the 16" inch ten spoke alloy wheels that it had on it. So, I basically put down a TOTAL of $2,800 for everything to get the lease deal that I got.
By the way, I don't think that the Sonata that are sold here for the US market is built in Korea anymore. I believe that they build them down in the deep south in Alabama.

Not a bad choice at all, the Camry is a nice car, good luck with it.
You are correct on the Sonata, the last several years it has been
built in the Alabama plant.

Is that 18,000 miles per year, meaning 54,000 miles total or 18,000 miles total over the three years?

Yes, it means that I can drive the car a total of 54,000 miles over the 3 year period of the lease. The lease for my Camry is for 18,000 miles per year each year for a total of 3 years. Not bad leasing my 2010 Camry LE for $156.01 per month and being allowed to put on all those miles on it each year. It's an EXCELLENT lease deal.

The engine won't blow, it will hit the rev limter and cut spark or fuel.

But it's NOT $156 per month. It's $219 per month because you paid $2300 up front.

One of the vehicles that I've owned which was a piece of $Shit with quality and mechanical problems was the VW Rabbit.
And haven't I pointed out that the Rabbit, no matter where it was built, was a notoriously troublesome car? I had a German-built Rabbit that gave me no end of headaches until the engine blew up - with fewer than 50K miles on the clock.
Let me repeat - my Rabbit was perfectly awful & it was built in Germany. Your Rabbit wasn't a bad car because it was built in Pennsylvania. Your Rabbit was a bad car because it was a Rabbit.
I thought everyone knew this.
