    One of the main problems is they don't know what the customers want. Last year around this time i was looking for a Toyota BOF SUV. The only ones i found were the Land Cruiser which both were out of my price range. On Goo-Net i found Toyota 4Runner's (aka Hilux Surf) which is still made in Japan but not sold in Japan. I bought new 2011 from Oregon and had it shipped back to Japan cheaper than the base price land Cruiser.

    Takuma7, comparing Hilux Surf with Land Cruiser is like comparing BMW 5 series with BMW 7 series or comparing Benz E Class with Benz S Class, the level of two cars is different of what you are comparing. Can u get Land Cruiser left hand cheaper than the same model in Japan? NO!! And Toyota is a global leader, they very well know the market situation. That is why Hilux Surf is no more sold in Japan but is still available in overseas market.

    Was not comparing was saying i wanted a BOF SUV and the Land Cruiser is the only ones in Japan. I wanted a mid price Toyota BOF SUV not a highend SUV.

    Jeeze, government subsidies accounted for 20% of their sales in Japan? That's a nice little bonus.
