It is well known that Japanese cars are popular around the world, but this popularity is not limited to light motor vehicles and passenger cars. Japanese trucks are popular overseas, and the demand for used trucks is especially high. I am sure that many people have seen old, used trucks on foreign television programs,running without a hitch.
Japanese trucks that were brought overseas are treasured by the local people as an inadequate tool for their life. Japanese trucks are popular overseas because they are safe, robust, and durable. Because Japanese owners are only allowed to use a car in Japan for ten years after registering it, many of them need to purchase a new one before the ten years expire. Except, trucks that are discarded in Japan still have value in countries with less strict vehicle inspections. Trucks that were made in Japan and were driven in Japan, are valued for their safety and performance.
Trucks made in Japan, whether light, mid-size, or large size, are all popular because of their performance and reliability.
