Japanese Car Engines
Japanese car engines are very famous in the West, as well as other foreign countries.
Actually, owning and maintaining a car in Japan is very expensive. There are many reasons for this including the price of the gasoline, (which is much higher than in USA), higher parking costs, insurance, and registration charges. This all combines to affect the usage of cars, and Japanese car engines find their way to foreign market, where the need of good car engines keeps growing. Car owners in Japan prefer to use a car on weekends or even if they use it daily, they will prefer to supplement the car journey with a train journey, whenever possible.
Reasons for lower use of Japanese car engines in Japan
Below are some reasons for which Japanese engines are exported to foreign markets and are used less in their own auto-manufacturing:
1. If the body of a car is damaged, it is not allowed on the road. The law does not deem such a car safe for transportation. Moreover, repairing a car is very expensive, and therefore, the old cars are harder to maintain.
2. The registered vehicles in Japan are bound to undergo some tests after a fixed period of time; however, maintaining a standard in cars to clear these tests is an expensive task.
It can be clearly seen that there is little life for old vehicles in Japan, and this considerably reduces the possibility of sale of Japanese car engines - rebuilding, remanufacturing, and replacement. But at the same time, this provides an excellent opportunity to the car owners of other countries to swap their car engines with good Japanese car engines, which are made according to proper standards, and are also available at a cheaper rate. If you own a car and want to change the car engine, buying a Japanese engine is not a bad option at all!
