Auto Parts Warehouse in the News
Just because you have an American car doesn't mean it was made entirely in the U.S.A. In addition to Toyota and Honda, General Motors also uses Japanese car parts, and their production could potentially be affected by the quake that struck Japan.
According to Lou Ann Hammond, a car industry analyst who was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, a certain percentage of inoperable plants could halt the same percentage of car production. This is because every part of a car is important and without one part - a speedometer for instance - the car would be unsellable, even if the rest of it is perfect.
Because of this, a "cascading negative economic spiral" could take place, according to the news outlet. The lack of incoming parts from Japan means employees would be temporarily laid off due to production halts. At the same time, manufacturers of other car parts not from Japan would have to decrease their production, and they too would have to reduce headcount.
It remains to be seen whether this scenario will play out, but for now, look for an Auto Accessories Garage Promo Code, an Auto Parts Warehouse Promotion Code or an Autoparts123.com Coupon Code just in case of an impending shortage!
