NAGOYA -- Toyota Motor is asking certain parts companies to cut prices for the July-September quarter, returning to its customary requests now that it expects output to recover soon.

The Japanese automaker works with suppliers to curb costs and asks them to share a portion of the resulting savings in the form of price cuts -- typically about 1% per year, depending on progress in rationalization and other steps.
