Re: 2014 diesel production

Congrats to all who went KZ. Finally the three stooges have all released. I have a hunch Vtail will see his before mine. Unless mine gets to Houston before this Friday, I will have to wait to go down on the 13th, which is 5 days after scheduled delivery to the dealer. Hope is is there by then. I am expecting reviews from all the deliveries, as I think a lot of you will get yours before I get mine.
So sorry Chiv, I hope your not getting a complex. Heres to a late winter. You have to go KZ soon. Good luck to all the rest waiting to go KZ - hang in there, they are coming soon!!!

And I know it's been said a bunch of times before, but if all I had to go on was information from the dealer and Chrysler's "customer support" (term used very loosely) and I didn't have the updates and info from Milous, Willx, Chevy, Marlon, Blinker and the others, plus the cathartic release of sharing in the frustrations and delays with the rest of JG ... I surely would have lost what little remains of my sanity and my hair. And quite frankly I may have gone "commando" too, and possibly even in the literal sense.

Anyway, thanks all!

I don't know about China specifically, but I have heard that car prices can vary wildly even between different European nations that aren't far apart geographically. Import tariffs and other taxes, compliance with local laws, local marketing efforts, differences in equipment, etc. The entire US gets the same product and marketing, we build a lot of our cars here, we have money to spend, and it's not practical to live without a car in most areas so almost everybody has one.

GM did this exercising their put option, they forced the sale. You wonder what the logic behind the move was.

GM has their own diesel experience... I wonder if they found the partnership unnecessary?

Their GM Korean built 2.0L diesel engine in the new Cruze replaced the 2.0L VM420 diesel in 2011 in overseas models. I suspect they will enhance their diesel offering of GM motors through their DMAX/Isuzu or GM Korea offerings.

The Cruze motor is the real deal, as are the VM designs, with a chain driven 4 valve DOHC...unlike VW's belt driven self-destruct design.

Re: 2014 diesel production

So now that Temerarius' has went KZ, does anyone know if he officially bailed or not?

I sure hope not. To wait this long and bail at the end makes no sense to me unless I really didn't want the GC anyways.

Edit: doing some research on the VM 3.0. It is a beast compared to the Audi/VW motor. The internals are designed with strength in mind. The bottom end is built stronger and the layout is better. The timing chain on the 3.0 TDI is on the back of the motor and winds its way around in a ridiculous path. Gale Banks comments on VM's design are very encouraging.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I think 1973Commando bailed, but afaik, Temerarius is still holding strong.
