Probably machine built. therefore there aren't a whole bunch of flaws (not proven, but thats what i think.)

ya, what I think is that machines will make the same part over and over again and make it flawless unless some part breaks

a person could never make something perfect over and over again

take a weld for example

Depends.....really. Machine makes parts. People put parts together. A person can see a defect, and select parts to be a better fit...than a machine can.

Before I answer, my assumption is we're talking mass produced. Not one off custom cars lovingly built by their creator:

There was a time that, unequivocally, the answer would have been hand built, however, that time is not now.

People just don't have pride anymore. They go in to do their 8 or 10 hours and go home. They don't care if the product is subpar, because it will never come back to them.

Machines can be programmed within very tight tolerances. Machines win, until the American workers can find pride in what they're doing.

It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until your car is built!
You make the call.

I'll go with machine built when we are talking mass production. In a low volume high quality situation then I'd have to go with human built.
