Ford, GM, FCA agree to shut down US plants due to corona virus. Very understandable but very disappointing amongst other industries.

It will help them in the long run from having a glut of unsold vehicles. With all the people laid off it will be awhile until people get caught back up and can afford new vehicle's.

If things don't turn around quickly it might be a long shutdown.

yes probably a good thing for the OEMs, given that vehicle purchases quickly fell off the radar screen of hopeful buyers. Unfortunately the supply train if they have not shut down on their own, goes into hiberanation as well. Lots of additional people sitting at home wondering how far my 1K from the gov. will go along with unemployment insurance. The economic impact of this is incredibly bad.

Not Tesla. Musk is being a danger to the public.

Sheriff orders Tusk to stop making cars. Tusk says make me.

I can see big law suits coming down pipe after Tusk is rolling "small pox's" cars down the line.

And where is Tusk? He cut out on his private jet and got out of Dodge. Nice hu?

This will be self leveling after a few workers get CV19 at the beginning of the line and this will spread like wild fire. Pretty hard to run a car factory when all your workers are sick. [emoticon]

Read a story the other day in Detroit Free Press when shutdowns were announced. They quoted a Ford official stating Ford had a 30 day inventory on hand across their dealer network. In flush times that might be a problem but probably OK for now? Story also reported Ford is tapping two credit facilities to cover their nut.

That's really good! Will the ones from Ford have the CP4? [emoticon]

In all seriousness I wish for everyone to do their part, stay healthy, and work together to get through this.
