TOKYO — Nissan Motor Co. says it will maintain output at two auto plants in Japan for three days during upcoming Golden Week holidays to make up for production losses.

But Nissan spokesman Mitsuru Yonekawa said Thursday the company was still struggling to secure enough auto parts amid a supply crunch following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

The two domestic plants will operate at limited capacity from April 28 to 30. Japan's Golden Week holidays stretch from late April to early May. During the period, businesses and factories normally close.

Nissan said it has suffered a production loss of 55,000 cars in Japan due to last month's twin disasters. (AP)
