BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) — Chip shortages are still a major factor impacting local car dealerships.
Subaru of Bend currently has 60% of its normal stock while Bend Honda is around 80% of its usual stock.
“I can’t sell a brand new car today,” Matt Thomas of Subaru of Bend said Tuesday. “Everything is pre-sold, meaning it’s bought before it hits my lot.”
The inventory shortage has become so much of an issue, Thomas has decided to sell only to people living in Central Oregon.
Ryan Vaughan, the general manager at Bend Honda told NewsChannel 21 that a majority of the cars they sell are made domestically and are affected by the chip shortage while a few models are made overseas and can still be affected by COVID-19 issues.
NewsChannel 21’s Jordan Williams will have more on NewsChannel 21 at 5.
