No a dealer said 300 yesterday... I dont think there is a definite #..

Either way.... There is a sticky thread for this... lets keep it there.

Hey Steveo, It applies to all the V8's unfortunately. Mine is stuck in Canada due to it. They are claiming 300 because those are the cars that have been delivered.

I assume those cars built in the last week already have the 'fix' integrated into their trip down the assembly line? It wouldn't make sense to have to apply the fix AFTER it's been assembled if they already knew about the potential problem.

I saw a recall list with 558 Vin #'s and the highest was 6470. Mine was on it, built on 4-17 and it's not here yet. There have been a lot more V8's built than that and most on the recall list aren't on the rail shipped list. It doesn't appear that all SS cars need the recall. Hope this helps.

Mine is in there...took it to the dealer today for the temp fix, parts arrive Monday for the final fix. Took about 30 minutes today and they said about the same Monday.

Still have access? I am built around that time and still undelivered as well, VIN A9104768. If you could check it out, I'd love to know for sure... although I am already pretty darn sure.

Looks like from 1244 on, the problem was fixed on the line.

Nope...I'm #3411 so not 1244 and on...remember this is V8s only so you have to see how many V8s were produced then add the number in there to get an accurate VIN of when this was fixed.

Just had my recall on the battery cable done at the dealer before I took delivery and it took roughly 20 minutes to complete the job.

Mine is stuck in Canada as well... i'm number 6890. IOM SS2/RS

My dealer isnt telling me if it was on the recall list or not, but the car was finished up just before this recall was announced, so I can only assume that's the reason it wasnt put on the rail car yet... if any one can look it up with my vin please PM me..... I'd be most appreciative.

battery cables

Our vin # is 7602 RS/2SS. Our dealer has been great about updates and checking. He called DBC (dealer business center?) yesterday with me there. Our car was built 5/5-5/6 and is, has been, sitting in Canada waiting for the cable recall since that time. The gentleman at the DBC stated that they are not given anything in terms of time frame to repair, only that it is waiting for it.

He said they are being given very little in terms of not only time to complete the fix but also very little concerning schedules or estimated dates. Only that they receive dates when they have been confirmed.

He said that all cars are entering the US by rail. I know the cars that I have checked in Ohio don't show up on the rail list and that must be because they are shipping by truck from the unload point in Dearborn/Pontiac.

All in all, the delays are frustrating, but will make getting the car all the better!

There were 1300 cars in the recall I can't find the link but it was on the GM Blog site that stated the exact number

Wouldn't it make more sense to ship it to the dealer and have them fix it in the 20-30 min time frame then have them sitting in QC for weeks or am I way off in my thinking?

Thanks for the info. This kinda confirms mine [#6125] is waiting for the repair there as well.

I'm in Indy... on the north side... you looking for a race?

Called GM support about recall hold of V8's

On the phone he said he believes they ARE holding off SHIPPING the v8's to correct the battery cables.

Its just what Alex said at the GM support line. (do we trust them more than dealers or not?)

I thought I would ask around to get an answer...

This isnt a big deal for cars not built because they will change the process on the line. For cars built they have to get fixed which ive heard takes 30mins to an hour.

So if my car is being built this week, it shouldn't be held for this recall?
