If a dealer agreed to meeting GM's required StringRay training requirements, yet not finish/comply with those commitments, no need StingRaynordering for that dealer for six full months.

“All Phase 1 & 2 Dealers who did not complete the Stingray Dealer Sales Academy training will be suspended from 2015 MY Corvette allocation for 6 months (beginning with first 2015 DOSP* Cycle thru December 2014). Corvette allocation will resume after the 6 month suspension only if the Make-Up training has been completed during the 6 month period.”

In other words, if you committed to sending your staff to training, but never crossed that goal line, forget about getting a single StingRay for the first six months of 2015 StingRay ordering cycles.

*DSOP = Dealer Order Submission Process

Wow, a clear message to those with pending orders or anticipate placing an order: Specifically ask your dealer if they have complied with Dealer Sales Academy training!

And once again, a dealer won't tell you this, will take your money, and pi$$ off a lotta people...if only we could get a list of those that are in this predicament - at best, this should be avail to every customer if they call cust service and ask...a shame, GM will get "blamed" on the forums for this...

If I didn't see any 2015 C7's on the dealership floor, I don't think I'd risk putting my money down.

Good for GM! They are truly punishing those who committed to get staff training, yet reneged. By shutting them out of the "hot" StingRay market, they are making it crystal clear that we require you dealerships to be trained before we send you a StingRay for you to sell, and thus, secondarily, reduce the amount of StingRays brought to those dealership's service department.

There were, and still are three components to GM's "you can sell StingRay certification." They include Spring Mountain classroom and track training, purchase of StingRay unique/required service tools, and sending at least one (could be two) of the dealership's Technician's to a StingRay maintenance and repair training school.

I agree with Glen, dealers won't tell you their allocation and they won't admit to not getting the required training but they WILL take your money and string you along for 6 months, just watch.

GM really needs to at least publish which dealers are authorized.

Yes because my dealer might be in the dog house and I don't know it because they're not terribly transparent. Wish there were a way to know.

As it shoukd be.

Seriously, how many times have you walked into a dealership and know more about the cars than the salesman?

If dealerships don't complete the training, they should be locked out of allocation.
