How long will they be shut down if "idiot in chief" closes the Mexican border? Will they be able to get engines?

I've been thinking the same thing in my mind. The engines in the Scat Pack Wide Body are all manufactured in Mexico. We are screwed if all commerce is shut down on the Mexican/American border. If this happens, our cars will delay getting built. I hope that this never happens because if it does happen, I'm going to be very disappointed.

Does anybody in here know whether or not Dodge gives out D1 Status together with Build Dates to the Dodge Challenger during the entire time span while the Brampton plant is closed during the next 2 weeks from April 1st to April 14th?
In other words, can the D1 Status and Build Date for a Challenger order be determined electronically and automatically updated from D Status to D1 Status in Dodge's computer system while the Brampton plant is temporarily closed? Or does the plant have to be open and fully functional with production occurring in order for Dodge to update the status from D to D1 for a car order? How does this process work at the Brampton plant when the plant is temporarily shut down like it is right now? Does anybody have the inside scoop on this?

I certainly hope our President does shut it down. Try living here, or better yet talk to a border agent.

The salesman told me the opposite today that Dodge can assign a D1 Status together with a build date before they reopen even though the Brampton plant will be temporarily closed for 2 weeks.
Do you think that Dodge customer service gave me the correct information and that they are right about this or do you think my dealer was right? Who should I believe? Also, does anybody in here know the answer to this? It would really be nice to get the D1 Status with the build date during the temporary shutdown of the plant before the plant reopens on April 15th. However, I have a feeling that this isn't going to happen.
Sam, I know you are anxious, but really, you'd be better off to just go with the flow. No one really knows the answer. I suspect the Dodge agent doesn't even know. I sincerely doubt there will be any status changes during the shutdown. In fact, if I were you, I'd count on it. If by some wonder stroke it does happen, you'll be pleasantly surprised

I know that nobody knows the answer. That's what's bothering me. Everyone is clueless about this particular question and they all give different answers. It would've been nice if they weren't clueless and if they could give a straight answer to this question regarding whether a Challenger order can move up into D1 Status from its current D Status during the time while the Brampton plant is closed for the next 2 weeks. I would think that this particular stage (going from D Stage to D1 Stage) is a stage that's decided "electronically" by the Dodge's computer system and that it's "not" a particular stage (like let's say assembly) that requires the Brampton plant to be open for production. Unless it's the case that Dodge's computer system is also temporarily shut down at the same time as the Brampton plant is temporarily shut down. I wish that there was an insider here on this forum who works at the Brampton plant that knew the answer to this.

We had the best insider ever but FCA shut them all down. The SRT people on the phone are not gonna know, maybe the regional manager over your dealership will but all we can do here is to try and predict what they will do from past events but this one is hard because they might have already have the new D1 cars assigned after they get back but yours didn't make the cut. It might quickly change early though but we're just guessing. You do have a sold order and the POC with your name on it right?

Yes, I have a sold order together with an order number (VON) and a VIN Number. The status on my car is D Status and it says "Firm schedule:serial number is assigned" on my Priced Order Confirmation Sheet (POC).

I have been in “I” status for inspection since Monday so I got a bad feeling my car may be stuck in shutdown. Oh well, maybe May rebates will be better than April’s if I get pushed into next month.
