Does anyone know what the term "Trim Line" means, I have ordered a 2010 Mustang and my saleperson is now saying that the car that is serialized is in "Trim Line" Status.


Thanks

At a barber shop it would be a line of men waiting for adjustments to their haircuts, although at a bordello they would probably be waiting in line for something else. Not sure what "trim line" status at an autombile plant is.

Thanks for the responses, I am going to continue to investigate it myself, I still have a scheduled delivery date of 7/6/09. So trim line must not be somthing that mustang's stay in very long

I can only speak about the GM assembly plant that I worked at in Massachusetts...'73 - '89. Trim is between Paint and Chassie/final line. In order of production it's...Body shop - Paint - Soft trim ( seats,headliner etc ) - Hard trim (fender and door mouldings,rear view mirror, dash,glass etc ) - Spring & axle, chassie then Final line - Start-up, tranny test, shift through gears, front end adj, headlight adj, water leak & squeek & rattle test, final insp then on the truck or train...to the dealer....Aprox (3) 8hr shifts @ 1car per min...start to finish. There's a lot more that I left out, but that's the very basics of the assembly line as I knew it....I worked on the Paint line.

Well to me, the word "trim line" would imply the car is slated for its final trim work or the final step in production prior to the quality control and shipping. Seems to me, your car is just about to be shippe dout to you.
