Do you have a link? I could only locate an article which outlined supply disruptions for several auto manufacturers. It stated that Honda ceased production of MDXs and Odys for just one day.

I saw the article dated 9/18/01 stating:

"Chrysler had to shut its minivan factory in Windsor, Ontario, for 3 hours Thursday for want of parts. Likewise Honda Motor, which stopped building Odyssey minivans, Acura MDX sport-utility vehicles and Civic small cars for a day while awaiting parts coming from the USA to its facility in Canada."

Is this what you are talking about or it there something new?

You know there's nothing I hate more than "half-info". Here's the full text from today's roundup followed by a link. One thing I've always appreciated about this board was the fact that people don't post half-truths to get people riled up:

********************
Parts shortages close auto plants in Canada

Parts shortages forced Honda Motor on Thursday to close factories in Canada that manufacture Odyssey minivans, Acura MDX sport-utility vehicles and Civic small cars. Trucks carrying parts are delayed 12 hours at the U.S.-Canada border, Honda says. It expects to reopen all assembly lines today and work overtime to make up Thursday's lost production. Meanwhile, DaimlerChrsyler said it was forced to close its Windsor, Ontario, assembly plant for 3 hours Thursday because of a shortage of a single part. The plant, one of two in North America that produce Chrysler and Dodge brand minivans, makes 1,325 vehicles a day.

Well, particularly when we're talking about HMC FACTORIES being shut down! OTOH, I wouldn't mind if my dealer called and said he was getting 1,000 Odys tomorrow but, in fact, he was only getting 500.
