Honda stops dispatching a batch of cars from their Noida facility

Honda stops dispatching a batch of cars from their Noida facility

Honda Cars India has stopped dispatching a batch of cars from their Greater Noida facility. This has been done as few vehicles have been damaged by paint fumes that were released from an adjoining plant. 

This has resulted a huge pile-up of inventory that was supposed to be shipped to various dealers. Lot of spots have developed on the cars, especially over the chrome, plastic parts and the roof top. Out of 4,000 affected cars, the Mobilio was the worst affected. Many units of the Brio and the CR-V are also affected. 

As per ET, the problem originated when an under-construction factory adjacent to Honda India was being painted. This will affect the company’s next few months sale, because it has to fix this issue before the cars are dispatched to dealers. 

"A batch of our cars parked in the CBU yard of our Greater Noida plant sustained some minor paint spots due to a painting activity in a neighbouring plant of another company. We are in the process of ensuring the necessary rectification, including change of parts wherever required, to maintain HCIL's stringent product quality standards," said a Honda spokesperson to ET.

Honda has already been struggling with waiting periods, especially for the Mobilio. With this new problem, expect the waiting period of the MUV to extend by a couple of weeks.
