Creating A Better Car

Five Reasons For Buying Japanese-Built Cars

by Logan Peck

The Japanese have been building cars for over a hundred years. Automotive companies there came and went and merged together to form other car companies, similar to America's General Motors. As they went along, they got better and better at designing cars, building them, and adopting technology into the vehicles. In fact, Japan has always been an early adopter of high-tech instruments in their vehicles. Here are a few more reasons for buying Japanese-built cars.

They Rarely Need Repairs

Beyond standard maintenance, Japanese-built cars rarely need repairs. Take Nissan, for example. You hardly ever hear of Nissan repair in conversation, but dozens of other name brands come up. Unless Nissan owners do not like talking trash about their vehicles or are just extremely loyal to the brand, you will not hear a peep about how somebody had to take their Altima or Subaru in for repairs.

They Build the Most Electric Vehicles of Any other Country

Following along with their tradition of adopting technology early, Japan produces the highest number of electric vehicles every year. If you buy an electric vehicle, there is a very good chance it is from a Japanese auto manufacturer. Four other countries close to Japan buy a lot of the electric vehicles driven in their own countries.

Japan Is in the Top Six Auto Manufacturers in the World

Japan ranked sixth last year in the leading producers of automobiles. To rank that high in a world where nearly every country produces its own cars is quite a feat. It also says a lot about how successful and popular Japanese-built cars are, something worth considering the next time you go car shopping.

The Japanese Stress Quality over Quantity

Quality is of the utmost importance to the Japanese. It is a value held close to nearly everything they do. They would much rather build the perfect car the first time than build ten imperfect or flawed cars to sell for ten times the money. Thankfully, with their high-tech auto manufacturing facilities, they do not have to compromise on either quantity or quality because their plants do all of the meticulous detail work.

Most Japanese-Built Vehicles (If Not All) Are Efficient

Efficiency is another Japanese value. They do not waste time, money, energy, or materials. The cars they build reflect this value in that the vehicles are not very big or extremely flashy. They do not guzzle a ton of gas, and they can go further on less fuel (especially if you buy a hybrid or electric vehicle). They also strive to do what is right by the environment by building vehicles with the least amount of industrial waste and recycling whatever materials they can.

Where to Buy Japanese-Built Cars and Trucks

With the demand and value of Japanese cars and trucks, you might think that you cannot buy such a vehicle locally. Wrong. Take a second look at just about any car lot and you will see dozens of cars built by the Japanese. Some of the names may not sound like it, but they are Japanese-built.

In short, you can buy your Japanese-built vehicle at virtually any dealership in the U.S. If you want a newer model, you may need to take a trip to the West coast to buy next year's model. Otherwise, you can also pay a lot more to have your chosen vehicle shipped into the heart of the country. Dealerships are happy to help you get the car you want, and will strive to find your exact make, model, year, color, and special features that are included with the vehicle you purchase.
