Toyota To Get Back Up To Full North American Production Levels In September

Car manufacturers took a major hit with facilities damage from the Japanese earthquake and tsunami in March, but Toyota predicts it will be able to shake off adverse effects and get back to 100 percent of North American production in September.

In a press release, Toyota said eight of the 12 plants in North America have already returned to full production, and on average, the company will reach 80 percent production in August.

If you have connections in the auto industry, what ill effects have you seen from the disaster, and when do you expect things to return to normal?
