If Dodge was to replace these blown engines with "crate engines" they would:
1)Save a bundle of labor pay out to dealerships.
2) Be SURE that the engine was done 100% correct the FIRST time with NO comebacks. 3)Put the customer behind the wheel in a fraction of the time.
4)Have a 99% better chance at avoiding further trouble with that car.
5)Maybe make a loyal customer for life!
6)Be able to rebuild the engine at the factory to make it 100%, then sell as seasoned crate engine w/full wnty at a reduced cost from green engine.
7)Determine EXACTLY how these engines are grenading plus any other concerns that can be revised on the production line.
8)One-up the competition & get GREAT PRESS to exploit to the nth degree!
9)Maybe pull in some Ford & GM customers to the Dodge family.
10)Maybe either offer at extra charge, or just include, better heads, more cam, a hotter ECU, better TB or intake, ANYTHING they can address midstream to help put another carlength on the competition. Maybe the 2013 engine? What an ingenious coup THAT would be!
Each of the pro points above, are, right now under current policy, NEGATIVE POINTS that HURT Dodge sales, FOR SURE!
What happened to the GREAT heritage of Dodge? They ARE blowing it! Once it goes, it's awfully hard to get back! Losing Petty & Penske in NASCAR is a BIG MISTAKE. Bean counters be DAMNED!
How can they be SO ignorant? Bean counters outrank QC & marketing?
How can we get Dodge to see the reality of this situation RE: how they CAN turn a negative into a GREAT positive?
