I went from queued for production to shipped/en route on Friday morning, so this may only affect cars built on 5/2 and on since mine has shipped.

Couple of thoughts. First, several cars have indicated they were on hold, yet dealers surprised their customers and said, "it's here," so I would not put much credence on your hold status. Second, let us assume that in your case your car is actually on hold, being pulled for a special twenty-five hour customer quality audit. In this CQA, the team takes your car on a special eight mile ride, listens for squeaks and rattles, notes anything that is not just right, and then a five member team goes over your car to fix any/all things found. Additionally, they inspect and adjust all panels gaps, re-examine the paint and go through a long list of things to insure your car meets all current production assembly specs. Had a CQA on my current Z06 and would love to be again randomly picked for one for my 2015 Z.

Yes, waiting sucks and every day seems like a month. Sorry about that. If your car is getting a CQA, personally would consider yourself extra, extra lucky, and by the time you've had it for a few months, all the extra time spend on extra QC will have long faded, and might have resulted in your avoiding a trip or two to your dealer...

Mine was at 4D00 for about two weeks after production was completed at BG in Feb 2014. I am pretty certain that was a period used to get a full truckload shipment to my area (mid-atlantic). At that time somebody posted on this forum that the transport agreement with the carriers calls for a specified period (two or three weeks) to attempt to accumulate a truckload but if a truckload can't be attained during that time then the carrier has to transport with a less than truckload. My dealer told me that my C7 was the only vehicle on the car carrier when it was delivered to the dealer.

So I believe the delay is caused by waiting for transport.

I'm also at the 4D00 status 5/02 build.
I hope elegant is correct.
As to the full truckload idea, my dealer (Detroit area ) told me they rail ship them to Flint MI then truck them back south to Detriot area, so who knows what make of that..?

I wouldn't put too much faith in that online Chevy Order Tracking site, I went from Queued For Production right to Shipped/En Route bypassing Production Complete with a 4D00 at this time. Go figure.

My car was built Wednesday 5/7 and went directly to 4D00, where it's been since (just checked this afternoon). The Order Tracking site shows Shipped/En Route.
We are having sunny weather in the Pacific Northwest for a change, and I am getting anxious.

Hey GunGramps:
I liked yours because I am in Van. BC waiting for mine and it is about to be built. I hope it is as fast as yours was. I think ours (yours and mine) would be shipped via rail meaning about a 5 to 10 day trip across the country. Mine has to go to Windsor and then shunted to CP rail and across. at least 10 days. Enjoy when yours arrives.

I am in the "other Vancouver" south of you about 300 miles. Yes, it is my understanding that Chevrolet is shipping all cars to the West Coast via rail. Unfortunately it takes from 1 to 3 weeks transit time once it is finally shipped. Now that my car is built, it has become even harder to wait.

Check the mileage, if it's more than 8 it probably got the extra special QC treatment ;)

My dealer says it was just released from QC last night, should be getting loaded up and sent on its way. I'm probably looking at a week to 10 days.......maybe.
