Once they take the first part out of the crate and throw a screwdriver to it how long does it take for the car to come out with the driver pulling it out of the factory awaiting delivery?
Any ideas

I'd say Thursday. Monday everyone hates. Tuesday you've still got 4 more days. Wednesday, it's only half way. Thursday, eff yeah it's Friday tomorrow! Friday, I can't wait to get the hell out of this place.

That's what I'm like anyways ;p

My 84 Fiero started down the line Friday of a long weekend and finished Tuesday morning - the worst of all possible combinations. The warranty file read like a rather large book!

What percent is hand built vs robot?
R there different quality controls for a limited production vehicle vs regular?
Do u think the worker would be more psyched 2 build a RS than a regular focus and perhaps do a better job?

I was thinking that they are use to building BMW, Audi, Porsche, gotta be some wicked quality control and high build fit going on there...at least I hope so. Also hope that the above makers rejects are not working for Ford..lol

Anyone know the date the assembly line actually starts?
Supose to be starting in January. I think thats what anyone knows so far, some are scheduled already. I dont know which countries goes first but we'll have to go with the flow.

As close to all robot as possible I'm sure.

Line guys won't give a crap. They have a job to do in x time and don't care what model is in front of them.

This isn't so true in Germany. Those guys take a lot more pride in their work.

Porsche, maybe. The rest... Eh..... I'd much rather it be built in Japan. :shrug: compared to US built not sure which I'd prefer US vs Germany. I don't see either as better than the other. Component quality will be interesting to see. German suppliers or US shipped over?
