Cherokee, big-car plants down

Belvidere Assembly Plant will, according to Automotive News, be down until the end up October due to parts shortages. The plant has been slammed before by parts shortages as well, resulting in sharp declines in sales.

Brampton (Ontario) is also down for the week; there appears to be demand for Challengers, Chargers, and 300s, but not enough parts to make them.

Recent sales figures suggest that Hyundai and Toyota have been barely touched by the parts shortages, while all three American automakers have been hit hard.
