Before we jump into family-friendly Halloween hang outs near Placentia, California, we want to address something that’s pretty scary to car owners: Disruption in the auto repair supply chain!
There is a shortage of workers, a shortage in parts, and unfortunately, a lack of patience. Remember when COVID began in 2020, and there was a shortage of toilet paper? Well, the supply chain eventually worked itself out, and we finally got what we needed. However, the dominoes of the global pandemic continue to fall, including delays in getting the parts we need to repair vehicles.
For the supply shortage to be less scary, here’s what we recommend. If our team informs you that your vehicle needs a specific service, it will benefit you if you move forward with that repair or service. Why? We see many parts go into backorder, and if you delay that repair, it could create a situation where you have to wait longer to drive your vehicle.
We are not saying this to scare the daylights out of you, but we want you to consider the parts availability and that the parts shortage is expected to drag on for another 12 - 18 months! Yes, it’s that scary!
The good news is, together, we will get through this. We promise that we are not trying to hold your car captive. We only ask for kindness, understanding, and patience as we work through these interesting times.
Now, onto our regularly scheduled topic: Halloween fun with the family!
