Shortage of Motor Parts due to Coronavirus

Whilst we are not suffering any problems at the moment if you have some maintenance work that you know will need to be done you may wish to book it in sooner rather than later!

As reported in Automotive News Europe - "Nissan is bracing for potential disruptions in plants in Europe and the U.S. because the coronavirus epidemic in China is leading to a parts shortage and wreaking havoc across the supply chain, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

The Japanese automaker procures more than 800 parts from factories in the outbreak epicenter of Hubei to make cars worldwide and is concerned that most of those components -- ranging from brake hoses to air conditioning controllers — will run out if plants in the province stay idled beyond Feb. 21, when the government has signaled that production could resume for most companies, according to one of the people, who asked not to be identified discussing a private matter."
