Japan Earthquake Could Drive Up Car Prices

BOSTON (CBS) – The earthquake in Japan will mean a shortage of cars and that could drive up prices.

But it’s good news if you’re looking for a trade-in.

    How can there be a shortage when there is NO DEMAND??????

    How is this anything but good news for the US automakers? What demand there is will go toward cheaper better US made cars instead of the cheap cr@p we’ve been conditioned to believe is “the good stuff” from Japan. I’d be checking any car I got from Japan for water damage too…

    Will all the foreing auto makers issues, yeah I agree this gives the american makers a huge leg up for sales. I have always bought american and always will. After seeing the lastest in foreing car issues, one wonders how they will ever rise again. CHEAP INDEED>>> now water damaged and potentiall worse issues.
