Honda Motor Co. Ltd. says the floods in Thailand will continue to have an effect on its operations in North America.

The auto maker has extended its temporary production adjustments until Nov. 30 as some of its suppliers continue to grapple with the production of parts.

Honda says it will scale back vehicle production at the six plants in Canada and the United States, including its facilities in Alliston, Ont.

The company had already pulled back on production at the facilities by 50 per cent for about a week starting in early November. It said some plants will now operate above that production level.

Honda plans a return to normal production in all of its plants in Canada and the United States in early December.

Parts and materials for the Honda and Acura vehicles sold in North America come mainly from North American suppliers, but a small number of critical electronic parts are from other parts of the world, including Thailand.
