ASK GARY: When Will More Toyota Vehicles Be Available?
Availability of Toyota vehicles has significantly bounced back since the earthquake hit Japan in March, and I’m happy to report that we will be back to our full inventory in August! Toyota production is now at 100% for cars – and about 90% for all Toyota vehicles in the U.S., including SUVs, trucks, hybrids, minivans, etc. Also, the Toyota Prius, which is completely manufactured in Japan, is now back in production.
Despite the shortages, we at Jaffarian have worked hard to maintain inventory even during the lean month or two. If customers wanted something that we didn’t have in stock, we checked around and made sure that we got exactly them what they wanted.
August will not only be a great time to see a fully stocked Toyota inventory, but it’s also a particularly good month for getting deals. It’s typically a clearance month when dealerships try to make room for the new models that will be arriving in the fall. So if you’re in the market for a Toyota vehicle, this will be a good time to get it at a good price.
