Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Snuke,

You made a number of very short posts. If it wasn't so early in the morning that wouldn't be a problem. As is, I haven't finished my first cup of coffee and I lost track.

Could you please summerize your last 7 posts?

Thanks

I hope you've saved up enough vacation time to personally deliver all those Jeeps that are still in Detroit come April.

Layoff rumors were debunked on Sunday at the meeting. Apparently they did not get the memo.

Ironically they embrace the name and don't find it derogatory.. (I used to live over that way.)

But anyway, you're right.. Technically Chrysler is the only automaker that still produces cars in Detroit. But I think the "Motor City" name has stuck, bc of the history, and the high volume of vehicles still built in all of Michigan and the Midwest. All three pickups Ram, F150, and the GM twins come out of MI.

So we're still very much the Motor City. You ever looked at how many different states license plates are at the Dream Cruise!? Ppl come from all over to hang out with us for a day. .. Detroit is to cars, what Jack Daniels is to whiskey. ... Speaking of whiskey, I need to replenish my inventory.
I grew up over by CAAP. I should be ashamed of myself for forgetting about the Viper. I used to ride my bike over there all the time trying to see anything I could.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I don't know what to believe on this site anymore. First, production problems were so bad that they were making 2013's again. Now potential layoffs. At least someone should start recommending Durangos.

First, filter out things that say I spoke to somebody who heard a rumor ... At least 'til the rumor comes true.

The problem with sites like this is that we hear and react to things that go on every day, but previously were unknown to us.

I know a girl who spoke to her cousin who got an email from his ex wife. The ex heard a rumor that there is a major problem with the new tailgate, so they are bringing back the old one with the flipper glass. The just have to bend all the quarter panels a little to make them fit.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous is having sleep deprivation issues again I see.

I'm awake, apparently my body knows I have to be at work at 6AM tomorrow, so I fell asleep early yesterday.

Problems? No major problems. Layoffs? Not aware of any. Everything is running very close to the original dates that were scheduled long ago. They never "re-started" 2013 production. Some quirks and slowdowns, sure, but as to be expected for such a complex launch. There's always a ramp up period before the plant goes into full production. Vehicles are being built, many are advancing daily to pre-release and D1. Remember, it's only been a little over a week...
