Toyota recently cut its manufacturing targets, temporarily reducing production in eight plants worldwide. This reduction affects the Yaris, Corolla, RAV4, Prius, Venza, and Camry and is the result of continued chip shortages. We've already seen the impact of this shortage on the Toyota Prius. However, parts availability is not expected to be affected by this reduction. This includes the availability of shock absorbers and struts, as well as body panels and structural components.
Parts Supplies, Including Shocks And Struts, Unaffected By Recent Manufacturing Cuts
The majority of Toyota parts are in strong supply, including everything we sell at Toyota Parts Center. Occasionally Toyota will place parts on a controlled allocation list. This means they are limiting allocation to existing customer orders. We continue to monitor the availability of parts for all Toyota cars and trucks and do not anticipate problems getting the parts you need.
Beware Of Fake Parts
Toyota's commitment to parts quality is unsurpassed in the auto industry. Their genuine OEM parts are second-to-none for quality and reliability. That quality is the reason Toyota requires dealers to use genuine Toyota parts for all warranty repairs and why we encourage our customers to use them as well. It may be tempting to save a few dollars and use aftermarket parts, or shop sites like Amazon or eBay for lower prices, but the risks likely won't justify any savings.
Sites like Amazon and eBay can be great places to find deals on auto parts, but you can also lose your wallet. We've seen unsavory characters rip people off, either jacking up the price or selling inferior or counterfeit parts. Remember, only Toyota dealers can sell genuine Toyota parts for all makes and models
