Maybe it will go down like the last VW plant here.

WASHINGTON -- Volkswagen is eliminating 500 contract jobs and reducing work shifts at its new assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., to ease an oversupply of the Passat sedan.
The move is a small setback for Volkswagen, which reestablished a manufacturing presence in the United States as part of a plan for meeting ambitious sales goals. The company opened the Chattanooga plant in 2011, its first U.S. assembly plant since closing a Pennsylvania factory in 1988.
