    That could’ve worked too

    Lol, who knows you might like a new Ranger. Or upgrade to an F-150!

    Agreed, the Flex ran its course. Ford only refreshed it once. Lasted longer than I thought it would with no true redesign and minimal advertising.

    That’s what I read earlier in the year, that they would be building them in China for the Chinese market. I think it would be stupid for ford to ship them all the way from China over here. Article seems stupid, all these so called analysts like to give crap inaccurate information

    Yep, the Flex is quiet great fit and finish and unique love it or hate it styling. I bet most of the last ones are going to California. On another note, seen an article today saying they want to remove the Nautilus from OAC in 2022 and build them in China. I knew they wanted to build some in China but now this crap??? Seems Ford really wants to put their foot on our necks up here in Canada!! Contract year next year so I’m not surprised

    The last Flexes are rollin through bodybuild department now. Last one will probably roll out of the main plant by Monday Tuesday next week. They lastedlonger in production than I thought they would. 11 year production run. Great vehicle, sorry to see them go. No more D platform at OAC now. Edge Nautilus only era begins!

    Goodbye Focus, hello Flex

    We are still building the Flex. The last one rolls of the line within the next couple of weeks FYI. The last MKT was last month. Some people at the plant are saying it’s done this week. We shall see.

    I agree with what you’re saying. MAP has gone through major changes since Focus production stopped. Bronco will boost your numbers up again and hopefully Ranger will continue to increase in sales. Ford closed so many factories in North America that I don’t think they have tons of excess capacity so I do have hope. I know there are codes for new Edge Nautilus in the future but beyond that who knows here.

    I would have to agree with you that they must be anticipating sales going down. The edge and nautilus just got a mid cycle refresh so if they’re aging that fast then sales will decline I guess. Also galvanizing from other ford products so we shall see. Hopefully after the contract up here in 2020 there will be more clarity on the situation and future of Oakville Assembly Complex. I would like to believe ford will invest again but who the hell knows

    Well, I hope Ford does offer buyouts so that some lower seniority people can have work. I guess at most plants body and paint can’t keep up due to the complexity and all the robots. Our plant is still doing 10s in main and paint 3 shifts til January in body. I guess that will go down in the new year with no flex or mkt but body And paint will still require OT to keep up with the 2 shifts in the main plant. I agree with you though that they will schedule 10 and if required we will work the full ten.

    Body and paint over here never can keep up with the main plant even when main plant is on 8 hours. Ever since the Windstar days they’ve always asked for OT in body and paint to keep up when there wasn’t 3 shifts. It’s gonna be interesting here, even when they reduce the line speed. Do you guys have manpower issues at MAP?? I feel like some of these p ppl they want to lay-off will be recalled because there will be no TPTs while ppl are laid off. Absenteeism is a big problem here

    I find that interesting seeing as how based on the latest figures Edge and Nautilus are up. They have wanted to eliminate C shift in Paint and Body for some time now. They already killed it in paint and now body will be soon.
