with all seriousness, I understand that there are rules, but rules can be bent and exception can be made.

These guys are coming home with lots of issues and the love that he has for this car helps him vent and heal....

Please allow him to keep posting, anyways the car should be here soon and his mood and tone will change.

He has sacrificed enough and we should NOT punish him


BRING HIM BACK!!!!!:flag1:

ZL1 is being held by Chevy to make sure we get damn-near-perfect automobiles on delivery. And we're waiting patiently. *waves fingers like a Jedi*

Did it work?


(Off-topic for just one second....Drake is taking a "mental health day(s)". I had a nice chat with him this evening...he knows why he was given a time-out. No hard feelings...and he'll be back. In the meantime, this will be a good time to step away and re-center.)

I think this topic has been exhausted by now....granted, the cars are still on hold. I just don't see what else could be said on the subject at this point. I think everybody, for the most part, has had their chance to vent and has somewhat accepted it now(with the exception of Drake)

Other than explicitly expressing his frustration with GM in regards to the hold, his comments never offended me nor were they ever directed towards anybody on this forum. He was obviously very passionate, no reason to expel him. He was definetly entertaining to say the least. R.I.P. Drake

Good idea, moderators. And good things will come for those who wait.

It gets old hearing negative comments about the V. Most of the time they are coming from jealous people. The V is a HOT and very fast respectable car and the ride quality is amazing. But, I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinion. The looks this car gets going down the road are priceless! GM did good with this one!!

I'd take a CTSV in a HEARTBEAT.

A dad drops his son off at school every morning in his V while I pull up in the SS. His black V with aftermarket wheels is freaking SICK. Yup...no need to try to persuade me. I'd jump in one w/out any question.

Out of curiosity, has anyone been through this before? ( having a car you ordered suspended from delivery for any particular reason?) if so how did the company/ dealer handle it?

I'm just curious to see if people think GM is doing the right thing (from either perspective, customer or business ) by keeping quiet on the matter and not providing any updates on the situation.

For me I'm kinda mute on the subject because this is a first for me.

Production has been halted for 6-8 weeks and will resume afterward as a 2013 model. Expect the cars to be released then...

My very first car to pre order, normally I have
gone to car dealers and by them off the lot.

But this car is worth the pre order and the wait for me.
I respect GM's decision to make sure the car is ready
before they ship them out. A 60k car should be a
finished product before you take delivery. A few extra
months compared to many years of anticipation of such
a car has made me very patient. Plus my days fly bye
so fast that what may seem like months to some seem
like a few weeks to me. Guess I'm lucky in that respect.
