Discover Your Path Around the Temporary Microchip Shortage


While there is a huge demand for new vehicles, there is still not enough inventory to keep up with that interest. The recent microchip shortage has caused delays in new cars, trucks, and SUVs getting to dealerships. Luckily, there are ways around this shortage for customers to consider. You can custom order a new vehicle or shop for a high-quality used car. Contact us to discuss all of your options.

Why Are Microchips so Important?

With all of the advancements in new vehicles over the last few decades, microchips have become more important to car production than ever. Microchips are a vital component to infotainment systems, fuel management, stability control, and a variety of engine functions. It is not a stretch to say that a number of systems in new cars, trucks, and SUVs can't operate without microchips.

How Does the Recent Microchip Shortage Impact Drivers in Our Area

A multitude of factors have contributed to the recent shortage of microchips. The pandemic, geopolitical issues, and some other problems have all contributed to a slowdown in the production of these important components. The result has been that new cars, trucks, and SUVs are arriving at dealerships at a much slower pace. Dealerships have struggled to keep up with the demand for new vehicles.

There is hope on the horizon. Microchip production has increased in recent months. It has been reported that domestic automakers have seen a more consistent supply of semiconductor chips in the first quarter of the year. While the production of vehicles has begun to increase, we are still likely to see a shortage of microchips throughout the rest of the year.
