So far as I can see Buick is still a GM brand, at least it is according to the GM website, and I'd assume they know! GM appear also to have interests in a couple of, presumably, Chinese brands among many others.
As is British Airways a British brand.

And of Hanson, I don't drive motorways that frequently nor do I follow trucks if I can help it.

Mercedes Benz is a brand of Daimler. ... So Chrysler never owned or sold Mercedes. Mercedes went back to being a brand of the new Daimler AG. Chrysler retained all of the old US brands (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Mopar) and became Chrysler LLC, which was then bought by Fiat in 2009 as part of bankruptcy restructuring.
So Chrysler is Italian after it was linked to Daimler-Benz.

The marketers sell the image not the conglomerate.

What could be more quintessentially British than Laura Ashley, a British textile design company controlled by the MUI Group of Malaysia.
