Toyota Asks U.S. Dealers to Limit Some Replacement-Parts Orders

Toyota Motor Corp. asked U.S. dealers to limit replacement-parts orders to those that are "critically needed" because supplies of some components from Japan likely will be disrupted.

“Damage sustained by certain Japanese parts suppliers will interrupt their normal production,” the Toyota City, Japan-based company said in an e-mail to dealers today. While replacement-part inventories are adequate for now, about 233 components have been placed on controlled allocation out of more than 300,000 in use, Toyota said.
