My car just got Bayed! Now what?

I was just told by my dealer today that I'm bayed (5/14). What does that mean? He said I'd have it by the end of the month.

It could mean that it is waiting for the train...but most likely it means you just joined us in QC...also known as area 51.

Sorry to poop on your party.

It means that Michael Bay is inspecting it and is considering to use it as a stunt double for the next Transformers movie. You may not see your car for a while my friend...

The dealer said it was at the railyard. Wouldn't that mean it's already through QC? He said it'd be here by the end of the month.

No stripes. It's just a 1SS with absolutely no options.

What VIN #? Did you ask him if it was part of the recall? I believe all "Recall " cars are in bayed status. But so are others that are ready to ship.

At this point, until it is sitting pretty at the dealership, I won't get too excited.

Bayed on your status codes is a generic term for "waiting somewhere". You can't tell from that exactly where it is waiting, but you can be sure it is not moving.

So does anyone know what's actually happening in Area 51? Why are they not shipping? MIen has been built since the week of March 23rd and last I heard still sitting at 3800. What the heck is going on?

Dealer says they can't get any info from GM. If the dealer can't get any info then who can? Just wondering if anyone has an inside track.

No one knows what happens in Area 51, those that do... are never seen again....

That's funny. GM says dealers have more info than them. That's why I'm inclined to believe my dealer when he says it's bayed and just waiting to ship and arrive in Chicago by month's end.

Well, I just heard on the nightly news that GM may announce the closing of 1200 dealerships tomorrow! WOW! Guess we'll have to see how that pans out and what happens to your car if your dealership is one that is closing?
