purchased an oil filter for my 2000 tundra 4x4 V8 from my 'trusty' toyota dealer, after getting home and looking at the box, it's made in tawain. I went online to check on a filter rating and of the many filters subject to dissasembly and analysis the toyota filters are not mentioned. now I know we have a lot of 'crap' made in china and most of it isn't worth a dime, but I'll be danged if I put their crap on a $34,000.00 truck. does anyone have any info on toyota'a oil filters? This seems scary that unsuspecting motorist are getting made in china oil filters on their vehicles. needless to say I returned it

dmann436,

Making oil filter is not a rocket science, not even high tech, it really doesn't matter where it is made. The most important is the material used, or the amount of filter element. So, brand name and reputation are more important.

BTW, China popped their men/women into space. Americans walked on the moon but make lousy cars, compared to Japanese and German.

Tundras are made in the USA by AMERICANS!

I do agree on the contents IN the filter, but give me a filter with a high recommendation made in the USA and I'll feel better everytime I start my truck!

btw, I use Mobil 1 syn oil and filters

That is my point. As long as Tundra factory here in US follows Toyota Corporation in Japan's manufacturing procedure, ... quality control, ... American made Tundras are as good as any Japanese made Toyota vehicles, provided their don't keep the American culture (what an insult)

Chinese make lots of cheap lousy products because of their standard of quality control and target of market. But if they follow Toyota Corporation's quality requirement in making oil filters, their oil filters should be as good as any Toyota oil filters made in US or Japan or Germany. The point is whether Toyota oil filters as good as Mobil-1 oil filter. It is not where they are made.

It seems that Chinese did better jobs than Americans in spaceship development because they have less failure than Americans did, probably not even one failure so far. Reason? Chinese popped one rocket in 1-2 years because of the budget. Americans popped one rocket in 1-2 months in the high of Cold War. Last week, Americans have to borrowed Russians' spacesuits because those American made failed. Russians don't make good TV, cars, ...

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
