Following on from our earlier post Peugeot are also facing productions problems. In a statement sent to all leasing companies earlier today they summarised: "Following the recent tragic events in Japan, we are now in a position to advise you of the long term impact on a certain number of vehicles available from Peugeot. Production constraints can be summarised into three main areas:
- Shortage of components required to produce the HDi 140 engine fitted to 508.
- Shortage of components required in the manufacture of automatic gearboxes fitted to 308, RCZ, 3008, 5008 and 508.
- Shortage of pigments required in the production of certain metallic paint finishes.
