What is different about the 2013 AISIN, from say the 2012 AISIN, that would cause delays?JRS200x said:2500's are not affected by any delays that I am aware of, just the 3500s with the AISIN.
Isnt the 2013 Aisin a new heavier duty one?MoparNorm said:What is different about the 2013 AISIN, from say the 2012 AISIN, that would cause delays?
Did Chrysler cause this, did AISIN start selling to other brands, causing a jump in demand, did AISIN remodel the line???
What the issue truly is, I have no idea..MoparNorm said:Thanks, so...is this a supplier issue, or???
Even if it leaves the plant on 4/10 doesn't it still have long ride to go? A friend of mine ordered a 3500 2 years ago, it took 3 weeks after it was built to get it across the border into the US. :glare:JRS200x said:What the issue truly is, I have no idea..
IF (and this is a big IF) our 3500 is truly being built and ships out on 4/10, it has the 6-Spd Auto Aisin AS69RC HD Trans, so everyone will start seeing them shortly... but again, who knows.
That sounds more like an overmatched salesperson making up a lame excuse, than fact.dieseldog1970 said:According to a member on a different forum, his truck was actually built, after many delays, and his build status going back and forth. The truck was put into quality control for final inspection, and it, as well as 9 more were scrapped due to frame issues? I am not sure what the issue actually is...I would have to agree with kscummins driver, does not look good for the company! Problems like this push prospective buyers to brand F and C...lets hope they get this issue worked out.
I'm on the same forum as the previous poster... lets just say the truck buyer has connections inside "Chrysler" that go all the way to the top; he's a former employee. It's not info he's getting from his salesman it's info he got from the manufacturing plant. His truck was built along with 9 others and immediately shipped to QC and then the fun started culminating with the vehicles being destroyed. His info has always been spot on. He even admitted that he shouldn't have said anything in a public forum about the issue after the mini firestorm it set off.MoparNorm said:That sounds more like an overmatched salesperson making up a lame excuse, than fact.
If there were really serious issues, that story would likely never leave the factory. At least not relayed to a salesperson, in that manner.
The real problem seems to be the new transmission availability, not some secret defect.
That frame has been in production since at least 2009, with numerous variants, up to 30,000 lbs rating, I seriously doubt there is an issue with it.
Not sure what's going on.... seemed like they had the big reveal of the 2013 HD's and it's been all downhill since then.MoparNorm said:I'm really starting to wonder what the heck is going on at Chrysler.
Is it the loss of long time Chrysler managers?
New inexperienced, workers and managers?
People put into positions over their head?
A lack of respect for the people and processes that were here before Fiat took over?
Something is missing and it isn't good.
Ha! My Chassis/Cab was at the outfitters for two months before I could pick it up, I made two monthly payments before I saw it.Muther said:After ordering a new truck every other year, or so, for the last decade or two, i have come to realize a few things. if you order a truck in january, and it is licensed and you are driving it in june, you are doing about right. If these people go to C or F, they will see similar delays. It's part of the business. Our are up-fitted, but that always takes fourteen days, no more.
I allow at least 6 months to get a truck, from the time I place the order, to the time I drive it off the lot. If it arrives, earlier... Bonus. I have driven about ten company trucks, and at least half took longer than six months. You simply HAVE to plan for this.
