A spokesman confirmed that “Due to a parts shortage caused by a fire at a U.S.-based supplier, the Windsor Assembly Plant (Ontario, Canada) will be down four days (November 7 – 10) and the Toledo Assembly Complex’s North plant (Ohio) will be down Monday, November 7.  FCA US will continue monitoring recovery efforts and evaluate future production actions later this week.”

Affected products will be the Jeep Cherokee, Chrysler Pacifica, and Dodge Grand Caravan.  Magneti Marelli itself is a parts company owned by FCA, which supplies many manufacturers.
