Bloated inventory forcing Honda to cut domestic output

TOKYO -- Honda Motor will curb car production in Japan this month and next in light of repeated recalls that have necessitated improved quality control, and slower than expected sales following April's tax hike.

     Daily production will be scaled back about 20% to some 800 units at its Sayama plant in Saitama Prefecture. The plant, which produces minivans and other vehicles, will idle operations on Fridays.
