Possibly Johnson Controls or MIG makes the seat frames. I can make some phone calls Monday.

Its not Johnson Controls. They supply entire seat assembles just like Magna does, but they don't supply them to the Grand Cherokee.

Yeah it's not JC.. So let's take their name out of the mix. I'm 90% sure of who it is, but like I said, 2 different names keep getting thrown around, and I don't want to recklessly place blame on the wrong one.

This problem will not be only detroit.... Actually globally there is a lot going on but releated to different supplier issues.

Anyway, I can only pray this gets sorted. Absolutely nothing to do with CDJ though.

Re: 2014 diesel production

When something like this happens, what happens on the line? I would imagine the seats go in pretty late in the process. Do you start stacking up cars with no seats? Is this even possible? Does the plant shut down? Just Curious. Still hoping to get my car by the end of October.

EDIT: After reading more posts in the Chrysler Forum it sounds line everyone at the JNAP is getting a holiday. They need the rest I think. Good time of year to rest. Nice weather in Detroit right now. Makes for a real long labor day weekend.

Re: 2014 diesel production

The last auto I ordered was a 1972 Chev Z28. It was delayed due to a strike. It's nice to know some things never change.

I'm not too concerned...I figure MOTS still says I am 'D' so I wasn't scheduled to be built yet anyway.

Now if I was Chiv....

Re: 2014 diesel production

Yes, those are the plants that they own in South Africa... There will be some other supply issues stemming from the mining strikes that come from that as well.

This issue is not tied to that one yet, originally I thought it did but it doesn not appear to be affecting it.
