“It’s insane! We are sending cars out to Plano and Frisco, any place where the hail storms have happened. We are also getting cars back with hail damage, which is another dispute,” says Descourouez.
She says they are having to get cars shipped in from other states, but still are having to shut down customers who had reservations weeks ago. “I wish there was something else we could do. It’s very frustrating because we completely understand. Bottom line — we can’t build and manufacture cars ourselves.”
