Toyota has a BCP that requires all of their suppliers to hold 2 to 6 months of parts/components in inventory. This includes chips. They remained at 90% capacity at their US plants this year. Easy to be the leader when yours is the only product on the block.

I know, it was tough back in the day being the Maytag repairman.
Well, back in the day Maytag was a good product but now its just a fraud label with bad warranties.

As for Toyota, in my experience you have to be a three handed ambidextrous contortionist to work on one.:giggle:
The good part is... having a Toyota can cure hip dysplasia caused by sitting too long on a fat wallet. :clap:

IIRC they bought up a lot of chips while everyone else was sitting on their @ss! There's an area here called dealer row which has just about every manufacturer on it. The Toyota dealer is the only one that has a good amount of vehicles on their lot. The others are basically empty collecting dust.
Dealerships are good for tax money!!!

I drive by Right Toyota in North Scottsdale a few times a week, and they do not have a lot of vehicles on their lot.

There is only one dealer in my area that has any Rangers in stock. They are asking $5000 over MSRP for them. It's no wonder sales are down if they can't get stock or are asking way more than a taco or chevy.

easy to request when things in the world are normal.
but i wouldnt be surprised if there are clauses in that contract that allow for acts of god, or other things out of their control...such as a global pandemic.

Exactly! Force majeure clauses are a normal feature of this type of contract.
