    Default Report: Toyota, Honda, Subaru and Nissan close plants in wake of Japanese earthquake

    Filed under: Etc., Japan, Plants/Manufacturing, Safety, Honda, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota



    As you've know doubt heard, a massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Japan. In the wake of the seismic event; Toyota, Honda, Subaru and Nissan have shut down and evacuated multiple factories throughout the country. This earthquake is one of the strongest on record in nearly a century, and the damage seen so far is devastating.

    Countless numbers of Japanese citizens have been injured, and reports of the official death toll continue to climb into the hundreds. One worker at a Honda research center was killed when a wall collapsed upon him. Approximately 30 other workers at the facility were injured.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire nation of Japan.

    Bump, anyway, this unfortunate disaster still has a huge effect on the automotive industry in general. I myself being a Honda car owner, has been greatly affected by the closure of Honda plants in Japan. It has been a huge burden to obtain replacement for honda accessories mainly because prices have gone up. I hope Japan can recover soon from this crisis and that their automotive industry will return to normal.
