Honda dealers in the U.S. are now being impacted by the disaster in Japan.

Honda says it will delay filling orders for cars placed by U.S. dealers because of production shutdowns in Japan due to the earthquake and tsunami disaster. In a memo, Honda told its U.S. dealers that it does not know when production in Japan will return to normal.

Vehicles built in Japan include the Honda Fit, CRZ, Civic Hybrid, and the Honda Insight.
