Toyota and Honda have run into production difficulties following the Japanese tsunami. Honda had scaled down production of its Civic, Jazz and CR-V models at Swindon in Wiltshire by half earlier in April and have now announced short time working whilst their Japanese plants, producing essential parts, get back up to full capacity. Toyota shut down production during the Easter break due to a shortage of parts. The factories affected were Burnaston in Derbyshire where they produce Auris and Avensis and their engine plant in Deeside, North Wales.

Output from these factories will be reduced during May along with three other plants in Europe. Other European manufacturers are also affected as many electronic parts are still produced in Japan.

If you are delaying ordering a car my advice is don’t as there is a sharp decrease in vehicles currently available with lead times stretching away all the time. By Graham Hill
