QC Hold

Not sure if this is true or not, so take it for what it's worth...but thought I'd share...

http://www.auto-types.com/autonews/c...-zl1-8455.html

Excerpt from article...

The problem was actually in the console screen that was not working properly as if the application was not having correct programming done in it which led Chevrolet to take such action.

The author of this article needs to get this thing proofread. I had to stop reading after 2 paragraphs.

edit - decided to read more, she thinks the engine is 5.3 liters...

edit 2 - horrible article, please lock thread.

Does Monica know where to find the spell check on her computer?
I have never read such a horrendous article in my life and I wouldn't give any credo's to this badly written nonsense.

But it's on the internet so it must be true. Maybe the hold was so they could add the 7th gear to the transmissions...lol
Think I'm going to start my own website to report on car stuff...this just in...GT500 now to have Prius drivetrain due to CAFE requirements.

That made my head hurt and I'm not even sure she is talking about the Camaro. 5.3 liters, 7 speed tranny, and the problem was with the in-dash touchscreen nav unit? It sounds like this was an article about a different car and the just did a word substitution for Camaro, Chevrolet, and ZL1!!!

She sure did a good job of making herself sound like she had no clue what she was taking about!!!
I am sad I missed the option of the 7th gear.. or maybe I'll hold out for that 1100 hp ford! LMAO

This is by far the funniest part

"ZL1 has got the both powertrain option with having seven speed manual gear box and also seven speed automatic gear box. This car is more fuel efficient and environment friendly"

Give her, or someone, a little credit. At least they included pics of a Z.

That is a horrible article. Voiced my opinion in a comment. Articles like that prove that writer does not deserve a writing job, and I have no idea how she got one.

I think that 5.3 is a V12, if I'm not mistaken.

....that and dealing with enterprise messaging... you wouldn't believe the structure I see --- and, I'm probably just as bad when I type in other languages..

That article I believe was translated from another languague into English format. They obviously used a cheap or free translator because it organized the words, sentence structures and tenses completely bogus! It also inserts words that don't make sense when the program misunderstands the context of the statment. This would have to be one hell of a terrible writer. In fact though, it's a terrible job at translation. I wonder where the original content came from?
