My answer to this is that they want to sell more cars. We MB lovers can drive ours for 5-8 years and they still look like this year's model. With Toyota/Lexus, they start looking old pretty quickly

All the stupid people around world, including me (I have a Toielta Camry), will regret if there’s another Pearl Harbor.
Let’s think about why Toyota has brought back FJ Cruiser.

Anyway, currently I’m staying in Fremont, CA for new job training and I found Toyota factory here right off highway 880 Fremont Blvd.
That's a good one Benz Devil - please keep them coming. One of my three cars is a 1991 Toielta Camry

The contribution issue IS scary! I think we can safely assume that they are not giving their yen to the opposition (?)

We have a Toy engine plant here in West Virginia too, and those non-UAW skilled workers are making damn good money ~$50k

Cheers,
