    Yours may have been built in Baja Mexico. My 2017 was. If the Vin# starts with a 3 it was built in Mexico.

    Tacos from Mexico. Makes sense. Lol.
    Mine was built in Baja California.
    I wish they were American made but heck, it’s a Japanese Company so it is what it is.
    Toyota has a motor manufacturing plant in Buffalo, WV. They employ a lot of people so I’ll give them props for that. Hardly any companies put factories in West Virginia. It’s pretty much an economic black hole. Just coal mines and gas wells.

    Or Texas depends on the first number in your Vin.

    My 18 was made in Texas. Thought I read somewhere that production was going to be shifted fully to either place. Don't recall which.

    Kinda surprised they'd add more tacos to Mexico and love corolla stuff here. Small cars have much lower profit margins, and even lower when you add in higher manufacturing costs from being made here.

    Very good point. I hadn’t thought if that.
