While I'm not condoning the issue, Warren hasn't built an SUV since 1985 when the Ramcharger was discontinued there.

So, do you have first hand knowledge of this? Or is this a friend of a friend of a friend kind of knowledge?
Other than being stuck behind people going into the workers parking lot reaking if weed and the overall swerving going in and out there in the morning it’s pretty common knowledge that almost all plant around the Detroit area are like that for all manufactures. The bronco plant has the same problem, it’s just not a “kosher” thing to talk about so it’s never brought up

But wasn't that a few years ago? And people were fired, right? So he's saying this is still going on?
It’s always been going on and never stopped. Most people are just smart about not doing it out in site. Every single factory around the Detroit area no matter the company has people doing that. No one brings it up because people aren’t caught on camera. If they’re not caught on camera they’re not gonna fire you, they’ll give a warning at most and keep you on, even more so now that there’s a worker shortage
The other factory that people got caught at is the only “true Detroit” factory that builds the grand Cherokee

What I’m wondering about it that since the trim fits right on the left side perhaps the locating holes or rubber mounts if used are mis located on the passenger side….it would be interesting to see what one of these looks like with the trim removed…wonder if a good body shop could get it right?

I saw the tailgate/taillight/quarter misalignment on all of the press review vehicles. I was hoping it was just a pre-production thing. Sadly, it seems to be a feature.

I replaced a tail light on my Caliber because of water. one of the headlights on my parent's Caravan was replaced because of water, and my 2019 Cherokee has had the tail lights replaced twice for water in them...not a new issue sadly.

While helping a family member drop off a vehicle for service at our local CDJR dealership yesterday, I saw a new Jeep Grand Wagoneer Series 1 4x4 in front (MSRP: $91,xxx USD).

The right rear tail lamp assembly and trim was misaligned. Although there was cold and rainy weather recently, no condensation in the rear lamps.

Yes it's been a couple years. I don't think they were fired. I imagine most people do a lot of things they shouldn't do on break. What's dumb is to do it out in public.
They were fired and the union issued a statement saying "yes, they were fired."
