Its not always as simple as just needing to count...alot of automotive contracts are fleshed out to the amount the the supplier can produce on a daily basis. Keep in mind it could be that something happened at the supplier...either they ran into thier own supply issues..machine breakdowns etc etc... I work fo a supplier that ships to the big three automakers and mazda... sometimes it can come down to a machine being down unexpectedly that can cause you to miss a shipment. We recently had some major issues with some of our power presses that caused us to have to expidite almost every shipment we had so not to cause any downtime at the plants we supply... if we shut them down it costs us ALOT of money in the tune of $10,000 an hour.Originally posted by M-006
This lack of this and that is really starting to irritate me. Can anyone over at Mazda count?
All this time waiting for V6 with manual trans, someone could have said, "hey, we need more 17" rims."
This is going to be a race between Subaru and Mazda to see who can actually produce their product in showroom for sale first for me.
