The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association has invested billions of dollars in the last decade toward convincing U.S. drivers to drive Japanese cars, according to insurance comparison website, Pretected.com.

“And it seems like it’s paying off,” Pretected writes in a news release.

Basing its information on more than 1 million drivers who were looking to insure their car with Pretected.com, the insurance company said the Toyota Camry is the most popular car in America for the first half of 2020. The Honda Accord places second.
