This issue also isn't exclusive to the Japanese makers. Everyone is feeling the effect as there were many parts suppliers located in that region of Japan.

Oddly I have a friend that is a sale mgr at a honda dealer and they are still dealing. Seems to be a toyota only thing right now.

My $1000 Scirocco and my $3000 Camry are both getting close to 38 MPG.

Late models, with their depreciating value falling every month like an anvil in a Road Runner cartoon, are for people with inadequate wrenching skills.
