DETROIT (AP) -- Honda Motor Co. says it will add two weeks to production slowdowns at its 11 North American factories due to parts shortages.
The company said Friday that it's extending the cuts through May 6. It also expects disruptions after that.
Honda said in late March that it would shut down assembly lines for several hours a day through April 22 because of parts shortages from Japan.
Japan's March 11 earthquake and tsunami damaged factories that make key auto parts.
Auto dealers are predicting model shortages in the coming weeks because of production cuts.
Honda says it is trying to get its factories back to normal as soon as possible.
The company says none of its 21,000 North American factory workers will be laid off.
