Japanese Automobiles Repair Service Tacoma Lakewood Puyallup
Japan is home to some of the world's largest automotive companies such as Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Yamaha, Mazda, and Subaru.
I had a 1966 Datsun (now Nissan) stationwagon. It didn't go very fast, but I swear I could have climbed Mt. Rainier with that car. A pin that controlled the shifter kept falling out, so I would just pull up the rubber boot and slip in a new bolt to connect the levers and I'd be down the road, again."
-- Don Doman
In the 1960s the Japanese auto industry was manufacturing extremely affordable automobiles that were durable, reliable, and economical. By the 1970s Japanese cars were emerging as a little more sporty and well thought of. After the gas shortages of the mid-70s, Japanese cars were part of America. Today many Japanese cars are produced right here in the United States. These cars are now some of the best automobiles in the world.
"One of my favorite cars of all time was my 1973 240Z. I felt like I was in the cockpit of a Japanese Zero. It was simple, but elegant at the same time . . . and in it I could fly. I would cram my kids into the back and give them a quick ride. I didn't go that fast with them in it, but they loved it."

Cars Direct has this to say about common problems on Japanese motors:
"One of the most common problems you will find in Japanese car engines involves the timing belt or chain. Honda, for example, calls for their engine's internal timing belt to be changed at 80,000 to 105,000 miles. The job costs about $1,300. Toyota's timing chain is external and costs about $400 to change. One other problem you are likely to find in used Japanese engines is that the owner did not have the oil pump completely removed and cleaned after the vehicle has been broken in. This leaves dangerous metal shards floating around your car's engine, waiting to do damage."
