Take a moment to learn about the global chip shortage and about how to negotiate a factory order on a car through Mike Whatley Honda. Then, contact us to take the next step in Brookhaven!



The Global Chip Shortage

Your vehicle implements thousands of semiconductor chips. They’re the transmitters that tell your windows to roll down when you press the right button—they send the electrical signals that tell your engine to ignite when you twist your key. Unfortunately, most of these chips are made in Taiwan. The production process requires huge amounts of water, and there’s a historic drought in Taiwan. What’s more, quarantine exacerbated demand for personal electronics, so, while these Taiwanese factories were struggling to produce chips during a drought, demand skyrocketed.

Limited chip supply has had major effects on the auto industry and slowed production to a halt. If you’re a Hammond driver wondering about how to deal with inventory shortages and price inflation as you shop for a car, you can negotiate a factory order and circumvent many of today’s hassles in the auto industry.
