Japanese automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

Younger generations the names Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Mazda, and Subaru are all synonymous with quality cars and are considered as commonplace as microwaves and lawnmowers. All six of these Japanese automakers are staples in everyday life for millions of Americans, as they transport us to and from school and work, down country roads for spirited Saturday drives, and on family road trips to the beach.

The aftermarket and racing communities also tend to be huge supporters of the Japanese automaker.

9. Smaller trucks that don’t suck

For the longest time the attitude toward trucks was “buy American, and make sure it’s the size of a small locomotive.” But then, in the 1970s and into the 1980s there was a sudden divergence from this motto, as many Americans realized they didn’t need four-wheel-drive, a ridiculous amount of towing capacity, or a bed with the square footage of a football field. So we began to buy trucks like the Datsun 620, and the Toyota Hilux 1-Ton as they offered us the utilitarianism we needed without all the unwanted weight and unwieldiness. As Japanese trucks from Toyota and Nissan grew in popularity so did their overall proportions, with modern versions of the Tacoma being about double the size of its ancestors.
