Toyota Production Back to Normal, Better Deals Soon
The company confirmed this week that its North American plants are back to normal after nearly five months of slow production.
Toyota shoppers have been plagued by low inventory which has made it difficult to find a good deal on specific models.
The plants that are back to full production make the company's best-sellers including the Camry, RAV-4, Corolla, Highlander and Sienna.
Toyota now plans to increase production by a further 15% to replenish dealer inventories.
This is great news for Toyota shoppers who should start seeing a lot more cars to choose from by the end of the year.
Many experts are expecting Toyota and other Japanese manufacturers to introduce attractive incentives later this year to gain back lost market share.
The only bad news is that Prius production is still limited and shoppers will continue experiencing shortages until at least early next year.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
