"Toyota Motor eked out a 1.1 billion yen profit"

I'd like to eke out a profit like that.

Toyota and other manufacturers were missing "key parts"? Since when does every auto manufacturer have only one outlet of vendors - especially all located in Tohoku? I think they're downplaying the the high yen and struggling economy in the US. I wonder what the demand for Toyota vehicles were in the US at the time, too? I call shenanigans.

The problem is that it only takes one missing part to bring down the whole production process, so some parts exclusively manufactured in Tohoku pretty much brought down a huge percentage of vehicle production. Trust me, there are no shenanigans here.
