“As a whole, you’ve got the automakers and their dealer partners that are feeling quite good, but we’re already seeing cracks in the wall and signs that it’s going to be hard to maintain the good times forever.”
— Pedro Correa
On this episode, Pedro talks with Derek D about how different segments of the automotive industry are dealing with supply chain issues with different levels of success, when he predicts easing for microchip production problems and why inventory levels are rising again, and the factors that could be putting pent-up demand at risk.
