Default Toyota to suspend all domestic factory operations after cyberattack

Toyota to suspend all domestic factory operations after cyberattack,

TOKYO -- Toyota said it will suspend all domestic factory operations on Tuesday losing around 13,000 cars after one a company supplying plastic parts and electronic component was hit by a suspected cyberattack.

No information was immediately available about who was behind the attack or the motive.

The attack comes just after Japan joined Western allies in clamping down on Russia due to its invasion of Ukraine, although it was not clear if the attack was at all related.

A spokesperson at the supplier, Kojima Industries said it appeared to be some kind of cyberattack. A spokesperson from Toyota described it as a "supplier system failure."

The incident might hurt Toyota's efforts to return to full production following factory halts in January and February because of chip shortages and COVID-related disruptions.

Toyota, which has remained relatively resilient to supply chain snags through most of the pandemic, has been trying to ramp up production to make up for lost output and meet soaring global demand for cars.

Toyota's production in January fell 15 percent from a year earlier, after it had to halt output in the Chinese city of Tianjin when the government carried out multiple rounds of mass-testing on residents.

Earlier this month, some of Toyota痴 North American operations were affected by protests that shut some of the main trade routes between the U.S. and Canada.

The disruptions in the first two months of the year prompted Toyota to cut its output goal for the fiscal year through March to 8.5 million vehicles from a previous target of 9 million.

Toyota is investigating whether it can resume operations later this week, the Nikkei reported.

The automaker operates 28 assembly lines at 14 plants in Japan.

I壇 actually likely go for the Platinum. I知 all about a plush ****ing ride and never go 登ff road. I simply need a bigger vehicle for work which is why I致e had multiple F150痴. I知 not a truck guy but I do love my lariat. Everyone who rides in talks about how comfy and quiet it is. It痴 like driving a damn lazy boy. The Sequoia checks all the boxes for me. I still have about a year and half left before I dump my Lariat. Really wish it had another 3 as more EV痴 come out, I壇 like to make the switch.

If within a year and half used vehicle prices drop, I might get a used vehicle if more EV options are on the horizon.

It looks like Toyota did a great job with it. It痴 much better looking than any previous Sequoias. It痴 basically our new Land Cruiser.

Toyota finally refreshed the tundra as well. The Tacoma and 4 runner need it as well. It痴 been rehashing the same old for a long time.

Yeah I saw the Tundra up close at the Daytona 500 recently. It痴 a very good looking truck, great presence. Toyota is doing a great job with their redesigns. Which is also why I知 in anticipation of the 4Runner and Tacoma. I知 basically waiting for those 2 and the STI to decide what route I go next. These are all different segments but I plan to eventually have 2 cars. Either I go 4Runner/Taco and compromise on used sporty manual. Or get the STI and compromise on a used rig. I致e been eyeing JDM Land Cruisers/Hilux/Patrols/Pajeros etc any would do. I rather it be this way since I rather have the beater for off-roading.

This has to be the absolute worst time ever in modern history to be in the market for a new vehicle. Seems like nothing but bad news after bad news.

IMO, the used market is worse. Markups are insane. In the new car market, you just need to be patient. Took us 3 months to get our Leaf, but it showed up and we got 0% financing and MSRP, while getting the inflated trade-in value for our Outback.

Just have to wait it out. Bad news for people who like to swap cars on the reg but no big deal for folks who buy for long term.

Unless you have a wreck or major failure and have to. Nephew just had that happen.

Or you have a kid who needs one for college/work, I will need one in a year.
