Honda expects a production increase in July and August, and said the worst effects of the March 11 earthquake are now behind it.

According to John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda in a memo written to dealers yesterday, Honda has more CR-Vs, Pilots and Fits in stock now than it did a year ago.

However Accord and Civic inventories are lower than last May due to damaged supply chains.

Honda sales were down by one-third in the first 10 days of May, and production is expected to bottom out this month, Mendel said.

"As we have stated before, we hit our low point and we are now moving ahead with increased production capacity," Mendel wrote.

He did not specify whether inventories for June would be much better, but said in July he expected an 11-percent rise over June, and increased production in August over July.

I read somewhere a while ago the HF was coming out May 6th or something like that and the SI was the 23rd or 24th.... I think the HF came out the 6th or around then. I just wish Honda would give a release date or at least some sort of time frame. haha

Speaking of taking a trip to a dealer, recently I saw two EX-Ls at a dealership nearby. I saw them while driving past the location, one black and one silver. They were lookin good :D

That's just what I read somewhere which coming closer and closer to today I started to not believe it more and more... My grandfather used to be the GM of a Honda in PA and still knows a lot of people and is keeping me updated with the invoices they get a couple weeks in advance but as of now it doesn't look like any are coming for atleast another two weeks if that... I'll try to keep it updated as soon as I get the info.
