Default 2019 Insight Production Interruption

Due to June 28 flooding in Celaya, Mexico, 2019 Insight production in US Plant is expected to be interrupted in August.

"Furthermore, Insight production at Honda's auto plant in Indiana will be suspended in the month of August due to a critical engine part that is produced at the Celaya engine plant."

What is the latest on this?
I wonder if recent negotiations to revise NAFTA will impact Insight availability and price?

The latest is in the original post. Production of 2019 Insight likely to resume in early Sept 2019. That could mean Tuesday, since this Labor Day weekend.

Yes, the single source being Celaya plant for that one part seems to have locally impacted availability and any willingness to negotiate price. Therefore, it likely impacted sales too. So Cal dealers appear to have gone from 4 to 7 in stock down to 0 to 2 Insights in stock. My sale is an example of one lost due to wanting too much margin.

If you use Facebook, possibly you could post on the Honda Indiana Factory Facebook and ask when production will resume for 2019 Insight.
