We have yet to see TPW's moving further into the future. If one's car is either now at BGAP, or manufactured hereafter, all those cars currently at the Plant will be fixed before they are shipped. I know us future owners buck like steers at the factory holding cars for a while "after manufactured and before shipped," and this is the reason why, i.e. if they find a defect, the cars are right there and can be fixed while at the Plant, rather than chasing those cars all over the country to have local dealers fix them.Yay! I mean ugh... what is with the shoddy workmanship they keep uncovering. With my car scheduled for production next week, I wonder if the recall work will still need to be done at the dealer when the revised part is available, or whether they've got enough to move forward with properly assembled vehicles from the get-go next week. :-
That's preferable to me, of course. Rather have the car in as-close-to-perfect-working-order-as-possible from the start.If one's car is either now at BGAP, or manufactured hereafter, all those cars currently at the Plant will be fixed before they are shipped.
Hahar, putting me on the spot a bit! It's a harsh phrase to use, granted. I suppose it's one people will take personally because it implies lack of care (and that's not a fair accusation) so maybe I should say "poor design". As far as where the poor design took place it's really not my concern -- people should take pride in their work regardless of the facility they inhabit, and as long as they own their mistakes and fix things going forward it's all good. Nobody does perfect work -- I should know, I work in software development -- but as long as they want to get better and put in the work to do it they're cool in my book.Also disagree with the phrase "shoddy workmanship" if that phrase is directed at BGAP workers, for most of the time problems like these are supplier caused
I think it all depends on the nature of the issue. If it's an assembly line guy/gal just doing things wrong and that got discovered, then assuming that discovery was actually made a few days before we found out (just now) then you might be fine. If it's a supplier batch thing, then I don't know.Hi. My car is built yesterday waiting for shipment! Does this mean it will be held back now??
