From "Chrysler To Curb Output" article in the April 7, 2011 Wall Street Journal, page B3:

"Chrysler Group LLC said it is curtailing production at two assembly plants as an auto parts shortage resulting from the March 11 earthquake intensifies.

The Auburn Hills, Mich. auto maker canceled overtime at its Brampton, Ontario and Toluca, Mexico plants in response to dwindling parts supplies.

A Chrysler spokesman said the company is 'taking some planned overtime out of our production schedule in an effort to conserve supplier parts that are potentially impacted by the disaster.'

The article goes on and mentions the Challenger and Charger are produced at Brampton before veering off into related production issues for Toyota and the impacts on auto production in Japan. Analysts were estimating about 500,000 fewer vehicles will be built in Japan due to the quake's impacts.
