Toyota is being a bit cryptic about it and has issued a statement. The Japanese manufacturer says that the relationship with its buyers is of the utmost importance and that good after-sales service is important for the safety of customers. "The Land Cruiser is very popular, especially abroad," writes Toyota. "We are concerned that a large number of vehicles are shipped abroad immediately after their launch, especially to regions where safety restrictions apply."
Toyota is referring to the fact that rebels, insurgents and terrorists seem to have a preference for the Toyota Hilux and Land Cruiser. In fact, about five years ago, the US government tried to investigate how IS supporters all drive brand-new Toyotas. Toyota indicated at the time that resale through the black market cannot be regulated. So the manufacturer has now imposed a resale ban for the Land Cruiser.
If Toyota customers do sell their Land Cruiser within a year, then - as we understand it - they should never buy a Toyota again and there may be more serious consequences. If buyers - or even dealers - violate Japan's Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Act, it could lead to major problems, Toyota said. Issues that could jeopardize global security, the manufacturer adds.
