    The VIN itself tells you. If it starts with a 5 it was made in US (Texas), if it starts with 3 it was made in Mexico (Baja I believe). Those are the 2 places they are built.

    I just wasn't sure if they had some weird way of saying it was built in US even if it was built in Baja/Tijuana....not a big deal to me, just curious really

    Dumb question. Is COVID pushing up the prices of new tacos? I know that the used market for them is hot right now.

    There is very low inventory so I would assume so, definitely so on used ones. I think my 19 Pro is more now with 10k is going for the same price I paid for it on the used market.

    They kind of do. I had multiple dealers tell me "This Tacoma is being built in California" or "This is a California truck". Obviously failing to specify they were talking about the the Mexican State of Baja California. Made little difference to me but thought it was pretty funny. I have read a few things here and there about subpar QA coming out of the Baja plant but I think those were 2016-2017 trucks. Wonder if it's still the case.

    I don't usually assume built in USA always means better quality, heck, I worked in a GM truck/bus plant right after high school in the late 90s,,,and I installed a months worth of chevy blazers tailgate wiring harnesses without anybody actually showing me how to do it correctly,,,,all i really knew is i better not stop the line! so, if you had wiring issues in your 98 blazer, my bad !

    I'd agree, built in the USA doesn't necessarily mean better...look at Boeing :rolleyes:. Unfortunately it's politics and profits that come over safety in the US.
