So my car was just built the other day. I posted a thread earlier today talking about the confusion the chevy site causes as when I track it there, it shows 'shipped/enroute' but it's not really shipped or enroute.

I called Chevy Customer Service (1-800-222-1020) and spoke to a gentleman over there. I informed him of the confusion on the Chevy website. He put me on hold a few times and when he came back the last time, he told me, "Good news, your car is in California!"

Only thing is, I'm in New Jersey...

So, am I missing something here? I thought all the Vettes were built in Kentucky. Mine was just built on the 23rd. Would it have shipped to Cali for some odd reason with other cars before coming out to the East Coast? Would it have made it to Cali in 2 days?

The guy I spoke with, although very courteous and professional, did sound a bit confused and I'm not sure his information is 100% accurate. Now it's got me confused!

Anyone have any thoughts or advice on this? Thanks.

:confused:

Not likely its in CA. Mine was built on 3/28. Arrived in CA on 4/14 for delivery. If your car is in CA, someone really screwed the pooch.

Seems that there is a mix up for sure. Your car is definately not in California if it was built just two days ago. They could be tracking the wrong VIN. I bet it is 4B00 at the plant waiting to be shipped. Probably later this weekend or next week.
Good luck and enjoy.............."when you can":cool:

Same thing happened to me. My salesman called me with good news, its in California. I said can't be, someone's messing with your mind. He says there must be some component that gets installed in California. I said no way, they're built in Kentucky, you better check it out. He called back a little while with the correct info, just built and waiting delivery. But he says he got the info from GM, they contacted him. So there must be someone messing around with 'green' salespeople.

Not necessarily true. My car was built 4/28 and in my garage the next week on 5/7.

WOW... do I hope your correct and there would be a chance it could make the short trip 150 to Louisville.. I just have been told that they will hold the first week of 2015 Production for two weeks.

I like you opt. better. :cool:

Ok, so I got it cleared up through my dealer. The car is at the plant in Kentucky. It's at 4B00 (bayed). Whew! I have no idea what the rep on the phone was talking about, but at least it's cleared up. He expects it to be there very soon as the 'expiration of transit time is 29 July'. I started a thread on that because I have no idea what that term means. Hoping it goes on a truck direct to my dealer. More to come soon, I hope!!

Thanks guys. :cool:

The only thing installed in California is an outrageous sales tax and more smog equipment, but the extra smog is installed in BG.

The rep. on the phone also had no idea what he was talking about.

The older I get, the more I think my older brother is correct: a lot of people are really bad at their jobs, have no idea what they are doing, and, frankly, they also just do not care.

Take what people tell you with a grain of salt. Assume you know more about their job than they do, until they prove otherwise.

Both you are Greggshere are correct, as what we will be having soon is the beginning if a new model year production hold. At the beginning of a new model year, there is a mandatory, all-vehicle quality hold, though the length of the "QC hold" varies based on several factors, mostly the amount and complexity of vehicle changes. As the 2014-to-2015 changeover is the shortest in Corvette history, just 64 hours, indicating very few and not-complex manufacturing nor vehicle changes, a two week hold sounds very consistent with that.
