Re: Eco Green cancelled?

Ordering reopens next month (3rd week or so). Material restrictions caused a order block to go into effect.

Auburn Pearl is the only color I know of that's been postponed.

Re: TH on hold

Sometimes things are found during inspection that require a closer look. They put the vehicle into QA hold and move it to storage (repairs aren't really done on the line). The issue is followed up on...

Yeah, all of you had "Chivallry syndrome" at one point but it's up to QA to remedy the last little issues.

Re: 2014 diesel production - 22P vs. 22R

It's a quick order package code. Combine it with body code and you can identify the base vehicle, trim, and engine.

23E - Laredo E V6
22H - Limited Diesel
23H - Limited V6

Re: 2014 diesel production

As a reminder, VOTS will send out emails at KZL status. Depending on how backlogged MOTS gets, that too is still working.

More will go KZ throughout the day and from here on out.

I wouldn't go that far. The piggyback ECUs are harder to detect but if someone really wants to do the legwork, they can find the traces of it. Chips are dead easy to detect.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Those rail dates just cycle until it gets on the first rail car as an FYI. VOTS will only show something else when it hits KZ* (where * is something beyond nothing).
