Exclamation Nobody is going to like this article

I don't think any of us wanted to know this is going on.

Update;
Appreciate the article that Smokey988 dug up below in his post.
Betweeen the two I'm most bothered by the 78% quality target.
22% of the built is ok to not ship and have to rework. Going to a 3rd shift only gives you 33% production increase. Therre is little to no benefit. The Allpar article is seems to be pointing to the the MID year release as some of the casue.
BTW Sergio was quoted as March sales forecast being down.

I'm pretty much decided on keeping my Mexico built Cummins and canceling my order on the 13. It's a great day to be a Mopar fan!

yes its bad and this is only the begining, the UAW sold its workers out plain and simple. its gonna be up to the worker to fight back to get it to where they can manage. The blame is on the company and the union but not the worker. there is now unfortunately a difference between union and worker over there. i think im gonna wait for a 2014 because when those 1000 new folks start working the tension is going thru the roof in there. its sad but thats whats happening all over, the right to work bs the companies making huge profits but still crying broke and the public believes it, folks cant live on $15 an hour with a family. Its high time the worker got angry and fought back or the middle class is gone for good!!! Teflon

Thank goodness for a warranty! Let's hope things improve-I've got a truck schedule for production, and I can't cancel the order at this point.
