Honda has had a tough year with the devastating earthquake in Japan and now the flooding in Thailand has hurt production again. Honda has announced that due to the flooding in Thailand many of its suppliers in Asia currently are unable to maintain parts production, which is disrupting the flow of parts to production operations in North America.
So what does this mean? Honda is going to temporarily adjust automobile production at all six Honda auto plants in the U.S. and Canada. Production is expected to drop off by 50 percent, but the worst part of the announcement is that the all-new 2012 CR-V will most likely be delayed again. It was already delayed due to the earthquake earlier this year and was expected to go on sale next month, but the newest delay could push that on sale date back by several weeks.
Either way we will still get to see the 2012 CR-V at the Los Angeles Auto Show in two weeks.
