Did they by chance happen to show any employees actually doing quality control??

The one on my future listings is showing Ford factory and Trek bicycles as the title of the episode. Am I missing something here?

Only at the end of the line, they were hooked up to some computer system.

Just off topic: I can see how some panels may be misaligned. All it takes is for the robots' arms to er a few millimeters.

Don't suppose any of you guys have this as a file? Don't get that over here.

Saw this last night. It's insane the amount of vehicles they pump through there a day and it looks like each person has little time to get everything put together and get it right. I can easily see how a new person can shut down a line due to the lack of experience. Seeing what they actually go through makes me respect these assemblers even more and I'm thankful for the quality work they perform there.

Look further out in the week of your local listings or check Travel Channel. As per my NJ Comcast/Xfinity listings, its showing again 5/18@5-6pm.

Would make sense but it's also been mentioned, by Milous or Chevy IIRC, that at least for the tailgate issues, it's most likely the bumper assembly causing the tight fit which is hand-built/installed.

I got a kick out of the Cherokee being showed a bunch of times as well - it's like free marketing on the Travel Channel for a soon to be released vehicle (no love for the 2014 Durango, just the 2013 with a cameo on the assembly line)
