      US is the largest source of used LHD cars. You can find used American market cars in just about every developing country. It's not that unusual.

      Also, TCL has discussed this topic before:

    3. Economist: Japan’s small car firms are defying the industry’s get-big-or-die imperative

      Article contains some factual errors (like Nissan making kei cars... it doesn't) but nonetheless it's an interesting read on the Japanese car industry.

      I think the article missed a few things...

      The clear answer is if you own an Audi, don't use the brake, so you don't need to replace rotors. :laugh:

      Ford has a lot of issues with Lincoln, but competency is not one of them. Remember that Ford was the one that designed Jaguar XF and XJ, as well as Range Rover Evoque... so Ford knows how to do...

      The reason they showed WiLL VS was to preview of concept of Scion, which was supposed to be a brand that sell cars with expiration dates. Toyota originally wanted Scion to be just like WiLL in Japan...

      No not really. That's like saying A340 is a modified A300 or 737 is a modified 707. The only thing that is shared by DC-10 and MD11 is the fuselage diameter and shape. Engines are different, wings...

      The next Tiguan will for sure be bigger so it does open the door for something that is the size of current Tiguan. Yeti is the right size and has the right kind of form factor to be successful here...

      With HR-V, Renegade, 500X, and Trax all piling in the market at the same time, VW has probably miss the timing, again, on a burgeoning CUV segment.

      It may look like the drivers let off on the gas but it could also be traction control intervening. We don't know for sure.

      I suspect the tires may be the biggest difference maker in that video.

      In the US market, LS now has its own base of loyal owners that keep trading in for a new one so in that sense, it is a self-sustaining model line. Lexus doesn't need a whole lot of conquest sales so...
