2016 100% japan vs 2015 90% Japan 10% domestic parts

So the 2016 4 runners are 100% made in Japan vs the 2015 and I assume all the models.prior that are 90% Japan and 10% domestic parts.

Anyone know what that 10% consist of?

I noticed the battery on my 2015 TEP is a Panasonic with a So Cal origin. is the percentage by weight or volume?

It has to do with the five speed transmissions, and some other small parts. With production of the 5th gen wrapping up and the five speed automatic ending production. The plant in America has already started making the new 6 speed. they are sourcing everything from Japan at this point While they set up and get ready for the new six speed in the 2017 model.

Does it really make a difference between Made in japan vs Made in USA/ Canada anymore? I know J VIN cars from the 80s/90s were superior in build quality vs numbered VINs but is that still true?

It's just nice when people write something that could be construed as fact that it is backed up by another source is all.
