Toyota Production Still Suffering from Parts Shortages
Parts shortages in Japan that have continued to linger since the March earthquake and corresponding Tsunami are expected to continue thanks to floods in Thailand. These shortages are affecting everything from the selection of cars at your local dealership to canceling overtime at U.S. manufacturing plants.
The parts shortage has also affected your wallet with the expected retail incentive showdown now unlikely to take place in the last few months of 2011.
Recently U.S. retailers confirmed that fully-stocked inventories were unlikely to be a reality until 2012. Many retailers stated that they did not expect to be fully restocked until the end of the third quarter.
