Honda Motor Co. expects to run short of the Civic compact and other models this summer because of parts shortages, the company said yesterday.

Honda will cut production of the new 2012 Civic, the sixth-most popular car in the U.S., through the summer, and perhaps for longer. In addition, the 2012 version of the CR-V small SUV will be delayed by at least a month this fall. To make up for shortages, Honda will keep making the 2011 version.

Both vehicles are made in North America, but like other automakers, Honda is running into shortages of chips, sensors and other parts made at factories in Japan that were damaged by the March 11 earthquake.
