If you had better info abt what really happened back in January, then you'd see this launch as more of the same. But I promise I won't waste any more time posting "generic" answers. Or even facts. Hell maybe I'll just pull a Marlon and disappear for a while and let you guys entertain each other elaborate theories. Guess that's better than 'generic' facts.. I digress. Carry on in speculation. I've got work to do.
Chevy, I very much value the info you give. Please stay with us. People are anxious and obsessive about this, and sometimes people don't quite realize how what they say affects others. You have been doing an awesome job, and we just want you to keep that up. You have been forthright, and give great clues when you can, and tell us straight out when you can. Again, I want to say thanks for everything you do

You probably don't get thanked nearly enough for your comments and the information you provide. Thank you. Also thanks for confirming that unicorns are real.
Hey man, no biggie.. I'm used to it. It's one of my biggest complaints about this place. Hard work amounts to nothing around here. Come in early, stay late, sell a few cars on JG (), nobody cares.. I'm gonna get the same check as the guy who's done nothing all day for the last 20yrs. Oh wait, correction, his check is bigger than mine.. It's the UAW way! (Which is part of why I doubt I'll be here much longer...)

But really, I don't need to be acknowledged or anything here.. The purchase is thanks enough.

Now that is selfless promotion of your company...

I will buy you and Marlon a Beer/Dinner whatever... I will be there in early December (sadly not in my Jeep but a company car)

And yes you do deserve a little more recognition.

It's the whole do more with less mentality. Still recovering at my company from a CEO that said "we've cut head count by forty percent. Now, I'm going to push you to the breaking point. Then, I'll see who is left with me. Three recalls in my group resulting in new business hold for a year and he is gone and we are slowly hiring back personnel. It's rare to be thanked for doing your job it to be appreciated. So thank you

Hey, you guys can add another sale to your credit! FWIW this forum and all the information here sealed my decision to get a JGC instead of an import.

Now that VOTS is finally working for me, I keep checking five times a day to double check it says "Turbo Diesel Engine"... Is that normal???

Lots of people actually view it as good luck, not bad. All in how you look at it. In your case, I would have to say good luck. (or....your screwed.....just kidding)

If you ordered a diesel, they are turbo.

I have never said or implied something was 'classified'. All I said was that we will never know the reasons. As we don't know the reason for the delay since January. We don't have any idea what they are doing with those unshipped vehicles besides your "This is normal, QC / volume build" up answer you gave us.

You got upset with me saying "We will never know the reasons" you got upset with me saying I think Shannon's vehicle will ship soon because it's been sitting for 16 days.

I appreciate the information you have given. but, if you don't want us to talk about it, that's not going to happen.

I do not appreciate this response to an innocent post:

How about this: All Friday 13th production goes to China, where there is not such a stigma. All production on the 14th stay in NAFTA, bc there is a stigma for that number in China.
