I will vouch for it....I saw it first hand.

My guess is the japanese engineer translated it phonetically when he did it on the computer...that or our car is actually made by a subsidiary or Kia or someone. :-?

Toyota Motor Corporation was founded by the Toyoda family. The word “Toyoda” uses ten Japanese strokes to write while “Toyota” uses only eight. Eight is considered a lucky number in Japanese culture. For these reasons "Toyota" was chosen as the company's name.
