Cars that are still bayed

It seems like some cars built in the last few weeks are being stuck at bayed status. I've seen many posts scattered throughout TPW threads and the status request thread. All I've heard so far is QA is holding it up. I'm frustrated and I'm sure others are; it makes me less frustrated knowing I'm not the only one.

Please include some details about your build:

1. Trim level and options
2. TPW
3. build date
4. ship date OR still waiting for shipment
5. anything else you may have heard

For me:
1. ZL1 w/ ECF insert, crystal red tintcoat
2. TPW 4/8
3. Built 4/12
4. still waiting for shipment
5. my dealer informed me that it is on quality hold, with no estimated time of release

I have a feeling this is due to weather for the 1LE's and ZL1's because of the tires.

I am also waiting on shipment.
1. 1SS, 1LE, Dual Mode Exhaust, Crystal Red Tintcoat
2. TPW - 4/8
3. Built - 4/12
4. Still waiting for shipment
5. My dealer checked today and the car is back on quality hold, no further information was available.

I find the weather comment above, a little hard to believe. No offense intended to Blizzard. I work along the south shore of Lake Ontario. Oshawa is on the north shore. We've had a few nights in the past weeks where the temperature at night has dropped into the 30s, but nothing severe. Also they have shipped 1LE and ZL1 Camaros in March or early April. It was colder then than it is now.

My dealer has spoken to customer service and I have checked with Chevrolet Customer Service (William R) on this site and no one is revealing why the quality hold is in place.

1. VR ZL1, M6. B92, RSK, Nav
2. TPW 4/15
3. build date 4/15
4. still waiting for shipment

Not my car but it's one we have ordered. We also have a CRT 2LT/RS with the same TPW that was delivered to the dealership today. Is it cold up there again? Seems like a lot of ZL1s and 1LEs are on hold again.

I'm guessing it is either tire related or NPP exhaust related. As far as weather is concerned, I agree with the comment that it has been warmer than late winter was (when the last major hold was). I don't think the temperature is the cause this time.

It's not NPP related.

Just a thought here but after looking around it appears that all the cars being bayed for extended periods are V8's. I haven't seen any LS or LT's with a long shipping wait. Of course I could be wrong but posting is a way to find out.

Well it may be a coincidence, but it does seem that the majority of the cars that have been bayed for a while are 1LEs and ZL1s...

It appears the QC Hold continues.
My 1LE was built 4/12 and I've been told it's been on QC Hold since it came back from the vinyl wrap for the hood. There have been deliveries of 1LE models prior to the 4/8 build week, but based on what I've gathered from this site none of the ZL1s or 1LEs have shipped from 4/8 on.
My dealer called the Dealer Business Center yesterday and got thru to a manager and was told that they aren't informed why a vehicle is on Quality Hold and it just has to go through an inspection and will be on hold until it does. Really! Do they have just one inspector that works one day a week for about an hour a day? How long does it take to inspect a car?
I wonder what part that is common between the ZL1 and 1LE but not the non1LE SS model or the LS/LT models has a problem.

I'm trying my best to tough this out and wait patiently. I've been wanting a camaro since early 2012. I waited for 2013s because of mylink. I then wanted to get a 1LE during the summer of 2012, but they did not start building them until late in the year. I held off because of winter (car would remain in storage, no sense in buying one). Then I decided to get a ZL1. Now it's more waiting. GM really doesn't want to sell me a car.

I also have a 1LE that was built on 4/12. It has been on hold since the. This is the message I got yesterday:

Just talked with them. There is a log jam at inspection at the border. Shipments are not happening as expected.

Needless to say, I'm very bummed.

Inspection at the border?? That's funny GM must now be smuggling drugs back to pay off the debt to the Govt.

I am sorry but that is a BS answer

You do realize that due to some recent tragic events there may be stepped up security at the border.
