http://www.chicagotribune.com/classified/automotive/sns-rt-us-volkswagen-wolfsburg-golfbre95n0iz-20130624,0,1542421.story Looks like VW want to at least partially still produce during shutdown though imagine there is areas of essential maintenance that this time is set aside for

Article claims its a 3 week shutdown.

three weeks is certainly more promising than 4 and if extra production is done maybe our build weeks will come down.

But if it was always a 3 week shutdown it'll make no odds at all.Trouble with planned shutdowns is that people do make holiday plans, then aren't interested when demand makes management want to have it worked. Happens in our place every year.

Totally!  I don't think there's a review yet for either the GTI or the GTD that hasn't got at least one error regarding the spec!  Too busy "reporting" on Kayne's new baby or making up a transfer rumour  :rolleyes:
