FWIW, I had a very well built Dodge Lancer ES Turbo that was built in Belvidere. At the end of its 160K miles, 11-year time with us, it still had a virtually rattle-free interior. I know that some suppliers have people on site who are temps and these companies have been doing this for a while now. They're a whole separate deal than regular employees and have no union representation. With the new master contract negotiated in 2007 by the UAW, it allows certain changes to work rules. We'll see what happens in Belvidere. Personally, I'm just glad to see a competitive small car from Chrysler.
That trunk opening seems useless. This car should have been hatchback.
My reaction to this headline was not concern about the quality of the product they'll make, but rather gladness to see Chrysler expects high demand for the car. I know I'm interested in it.
My sister-in-law works on the floor of the Belvidere plant. I can't wait to hear the stories.
