I am positive I said something similar earlier on in this thread.
I am in importing & distribution, we do the same thing. We donít announce or mention anything to our dealers until the product is actually on the water.
It can drive them crazy and make our sales people look stupid sometimes because the dealers ask them about products they see on the web that we havenít informed them about.
But we donít want wasted focus from anyone on items they canít supply.
We donít make press releases until the products are actually in our hands and can supply our dealer network. It makes no sense spending time and money to promote something you canít supply.
We see how stupid it looks with those blog cut and pastes, so it would look all the more stupid to do it on a larger and more expensive scale.
Holden did NOT want to launch their new Commodore when they did, as they are still so far from launching it, but were pushed into the situation because the US started promoting it as a Pace car.
Chrysler Aus has made the decision to not do this, and fair enough.
Saying things on JG arenít true is idiotic, not supplying requested info in regards to an order when they can is also frustrating.
But remember guys, we are the thin edge of the wedge. Most consumers donít investigate enough to know about new models, see that brilliantly idiotic lawsuit thread as a prime example.
So for most consumers, the lack of info is irrelevant. If they can walk into a dealer and get a car today, most will be super happy, even when a new one releases soon.
