Nissan trimming vehicle production

CANTON, Miss. (AP) - Nissan North America will trim output at

its Mississippi and Tennessee vehicle-assembly plants through the

rest of the month.

That's a reaction to a sharp drop in vehicles sales nationally.

Nissan plans to cut Friday production on Canton's Altima sedan

line for the rest of the month. The Smyrna, Tenn. plant which

produces the Maxima, Altima sedan, hybrid and coupe will also lose

Friday production.

The company says the volume reduction is temporary.
