    They are not. The ones sold in the US are, I believe, and it's my understanding they are more american made than the big 3 cars, which have large amounts of parts made in Canada.

    Well I haven't really studied it but I've heard that the Big 3 still have more American parts than American made Toyotas, but maybe that's changed.

    Toyota, GM, Ford, Chrysler, and Honda all have manufacturing plants in Canada

    Toyota build the Lexus RX 350 in Canada, at one of its plants ( I believe it has 2). Honda builds the Ridgeline and Civic in Canada. The Domestic build a variety of their products in Canada

    As for sales in the US

    The Camry is primarily built in the US and sold in the US (US version). Most Lexus's are built in Japan, only the RX and ES being built outside I believe. The Tundra is built in the US (Texas) but I think the Tacoma and varients are built in Japan.

    The Honda Accord, Civic are built in North America for the north american market, with some Japanese imports. Most other models I believe are imported.

    Parts are sourced globally with the less significant ones sourced from NA suppliers being in both Canada and the US. (the Toyota gas pedals are a combination of US and Canadian sourced parts and assemblies.

    Overall the Domestics had a large share of their production in Canada

    Actually, I like Ford (I drive a Mustang) and Chevy, however since the bailouts I am avoiding Chevy, well, except for a Chevy 350 engine I need for a project I will be doing sometime soon.

    I like Toyota and Honda too, since they are very reliable and are non-union.

    Re: Is US bullying Toyota on recall?

    Before I joined the Army I worked as a mechanic at a shop that worked on every type of vehicle. The one thing I learned was that every car maker makes great cars and every car maker makes bad cars. The difference between them is not really much. The odds of getting a good Toyota are about the same as getting a good GM. Was it different back in the 80s probably I dont know but that is the way it is now atleast from what I have seen.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."
