A question for those in the know. Is the Wilmington plant completely devoted to producing Saturn Sky's now or are they still producing the Solstice as well? Do we have a status report on production? 3 shifts? Full speed ahead?

I don't have an answer to your question, but I for one, am praying that IF Saturn does increase production...the quality will remain intact. Seems like whenever production increases with an addition of a 3rd shift...quality control goes out the window. Keeping my fingers crossed that this doesn't happen with our Skys. :cheers:

Saleslady speculating that most energy by Saturn being put into trying to avoid Solstice fiasco..20,000 orders, and 7,000 cars. I read an article that said production of Sky would be 15,000...since that time, Saturn reps are mum about how many are being produced. I hope I am not being promised a car by mid summer just because. This is torture fer sure

from what i gather Both Solstices and Skys are being produced at the same time, the third shift was added in january first to try to catch up on Solstice production then when the Sky came on board to continue production of both cars...I have not heard anything otherwise.

They have been working 3-shifts since December -- I really don't think thay can increase any more -- but I would think SOME reduction of SOL has to be happening... All we can do is -- Oh god here it comes --->WAIT<----

My "ex" husband used to work at Mitsubishi in Bloomington, Illinois - they only had a 1st & 2nd shift - I cringed at some of the stories he would tell about the work that was done on some cars! 1st shift didn't get along with the 2nd shift so they would leave work for them to do - 2nd shift would get ticked off and just not do it. Someone needed to be checking those cars a little closer!!!

Sorry for the confusion. The question wasn't for you SkyMan. It was for SaturnofBrandon. :D

oh ok, best to use the quote function when you are talking about someone in particular's post.... Just a suggestion. it can get confusing if there are two or three posts in between the one you are commenting on... when you said that about the wife not being in much pain and on new meds i thought you were talking to me. I understand though...

Currently , Wilmington produces Skys and Solstices on 3 shifts. And the line doesn't stop at 3am to play cards!

I was glad to read things are improving somewhat. Is she letting you drive the car? I'm not sure my wife will give me much driving time...Although this is supposed to be my car.
