I havent heard anything like that.That would be interesting if Ford bought in to Toyota's stocks.I'll be sure to ask the rep about it this week.

I see it like this, just as Toyota did for GM, A Toyota Cavalier in Japan, and the Toyota Vibe..
Is that Detroit's way of getting around Japan's trade policies? I've always heard that there hasn't been good access to the Japanese market.

There isn't a good access for American Autos over there. Astro Vans are a big one over there for sale, there is a big following for those, and cheap. But other than that, not alot of American Showrooms dot the landscape.

If Ford Japan could chime in, he would be better at addressing this issue as he is over there and imports american vehicles. Japan also makes changes that aren't cheap to domestics, gotta have amber turn signals, side signals, and some other things.
