Honda Shutting Down Plants Because of Micro-Chip Shortage

It might hard to purchase a car soon, especially if you want a Honda.

Next week, Honda will be temporarily shutting down most of its North American plants because of a short supply of micro-chips.

Right now there’s a global shortage of these products.

Ford, Fiat, Chrysler and GM all say they’re experiencing production problems for the same reason.

An average car has 50 to 150 microchips in it.

Difficulties at U.S. semi-conductor plants and earthquakes in Japan are the main factors for the shortage.
