    The best japanese vehicles were not only not exclusive to Japan, but were often made when collaborating or catering directly to, the western market. particularly the US. do you really think its a good business model to "keep the best stuff" for yourself, when you could boost sales dramatically by selling it if it actually existed? the shit that stays in Japan in reality, is the shit that the japs know won't sell.

    The honda element was the coolest utility vehicle Honda ever made. way cooler than any shit they had exclusively back home in Japan. and it was made in the USDM market.
    The Lexus LS was made to directly cater to the american market.
    the Toyota Sequia/Tundra were heavy trucks/SUVs that essentially gave you 90% of a land cruiser for half the price that moronic australians would pay for them.
    the Toyota avalon is 90% of what you'd get in your typical overpriced lexus (again, the original LS was good, but most of the lexus lineup is pretty pointless with how good the Avalon is). the Avalon is a USDM exclusive toyota.

    Not only that, but when some of these USDM jap cars made it to Japan, and the rest of Asia like the Honda Inspire, they were a hit. the 8th gen Honda Inspire, (which was just a USDM accord), boosted Honda's sales over luxury brands like Mercedes, BMW, and Toyota's own Lexus in Korea. the car was so popular it continued to be produced in other countries even after it officially ended production in the US. it was seen as a top tier low key luxury sedan in asia. people loved it.

    On the contrary, id say the best shit Japanese brands produce are often exclusive to western markets. they make their best shit for us, and they often never get to experience them.

    I know weebs won't agree with this, because they'd happily pay double the price for a car that some old japanese man dropped a long greenish yellow turd after eating nothing but wasabi, but Japan makes their best shit for the west.

        america already has body on frame v8 sedans that are far better. the crown would've just been a shittier more expensive less fuel efficient avalon.

        again, these things merely not being sold outside japan isn't any indicator that they were better.

            >Development of the LS began in 1983 as the F1 project, the code name for a secret flagship sedan. At the time, Toyota's two existing flagship models were the Crown and Century models – both of which catered exclusively for the Japanese market and had little global appeal that could compete with international luxury brands such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Jaguar.

            Do you ever think if the LFA was successful, Toyota would actually try and make their own performance engines outside of their V8 in the F cars? I guess they did make the 3 Cylinder for the GR Corolla tho

            The LFA succeeding would mean that stuff like the IS F or the GS F would be a success, which would make Toyota invest on new engines, but in turn that would probably mean that everything beyond a sportier Yaris would probably be a Lexus instead and cost more thanks to that

It may not be true for all American built Japanese shitboxes, but mine seem to be no lower in quality than the same models but Japanese made. It might help their case that most of the components were made in Japan and shipped over to be assembled into the American made bodies.

It has a hydraulic belt tensioner for the timing belt though, which still works fine when I tested it per the FSM (I replaced ALL the belts last year). Never fiddle fricked around with the shims, but it needs a new set of rings since it's just coming in under minimum compression numbers now.

        I might give you one on the anti-corrosion but it's always lived in a garage in the northwestern US. So it doesn't look like the graham cracker from hell underneath. Still can read the frame stamps and paint marks.
