Honda adjusts North American output due to parts shortage

Posted:

TOKYO (AP)- Honda is adjusting production at two North American factories from Feb. 24 through March 2, cutting production by 5,000 cars due to a disruption in parts shipments caused by a protracted labor dispute at West Coast ports.

Tokyo-based Honda Motor Co. spokeswoman Misato Fukushima said Friday that two Ohio plants and one plant in Canada returned to normal production as the auto parts came in by air.

But an Indiana plant and another in Canada still have to trim production.

Production from Feb. 16-23 was already cut by 20,000 cars because all five plants were affected.

Fukushima says the disruption mainly affects the company's popular Civic model.

New-contract talks over a new contract have been delayed for dockworkers at West Coast ports, stranding billions of dollars of cargo on ships.
