Re: 2014 diesel production

Ok so here's the rundown; first, there was a strike.. Then it wasn't a strike. Then it was a supplier breakdown. Then sumn else.. Seems like the story changed depending on who you talked to, and at least 3 suppliers not named Magna were blamed. Which is why I never said, "so and so is striking," bc that would've been poor reporting. Maybe good enough for Faux News, but not JG. Anyway, the fact of the matter is we didn't have all the parts we needed to build a vehicle.. And now we do. Sorta.

Initially I reported "strike" bc that's what I heard from some of the same ppl WHO WORK FOR CHRYSLER that I've gotten other valuable info from in the past. Maybe we were wrong? Maybe it was a breakdown? Or maybe the Europeans flew over on magic carpets and snuck into the suppliers place and stole all the brackets for our seats!? Who knows?.. Who really cares? Again, fact is we lost a couple days worth of production, and it wasnt our fault.

So - are we running now? (I'm glad you asked.) Yes and no.. We do have seats now, but they're not coming fast enough to keep up with the line.. JIT is "F'n-late" at the moment.. Talked with Marlon, and he says dayshift ran 556 earlier. That's very poor considering the numbers we've been doing, but sumn beats the hell otta nothin. Currently where I am, we're down. Mainly bc the whole system in the plant is banked out, and my line runs faster than most of the rest of the plant.

As for that alleged SA strike deal.. I have no info about that, nor has it affected us at all.

All we can ever pass along is the info we have in hand. Unfortunately, it is not always correct. Want to thank you for keeping us informed. Most of all, thanks for building our Jeeps. Hats off to you.

Skik,

They ran 552 vehicles on first shift so they are making progress. They lost a fews days due to seat shortage and are currently constrained by seat deliveries running behind but they are up.

We should see somebody get a VOTS update that their CRD is in production soon...I hope.

Re: 2014 diesel production

You guys in the CRD thread are having way too much fun, or is that just your way of coping with the agony of the wait? Either way, I decided to join you.

I had a Limited V6 gas unit with a MOTS scheduled delivery in just 4 days, Friday 8/30. I released the order back to the dealer late today and reordered the diesel Limited in Granite.

If anyone is looking for a decked out Limited V6 in the Texas market, River Oaks CDJ in Houston has a Cashmere Pearl 14.5 ready for Labor Day.

I may be at the back of the line, but I will be happier come Oct/Nov. Thanks to the many posters that helped me choose the Jeep GC and fine tune my ultimate decision.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I honestly have stopped checking MOTS/my email first thing in the morning. I've sort of lost the enthusiasm watching everyone else go D1.

This was a nice reminder that I'm not the only one waiting here!
