A Message from GMConnects....

A lot of people are inquiring about the status of GMConnects so I thought I'd give those of you who are still interested an update.

I cannot promise you that you will see it at GM again but I do promise you it will be available again. Sorry to say that but my partners and I have invested plenty of time and a small fortune into the product/service and it's time to pursue a revenue stream for it.

GM is still in the picture and there are currently on going discussions at the executive level but I cannot say more than that at this point. I wish we can continue to provide the service but at this point we were advised not to. Should the discussions break down with GM and pick up with another auto manufacturer, we would be left in a very bad position if we had thousands of GM customers still being served.

GMConnects was built to give General Motors a competitive advantage by revolutionizing the car buying experience for ALL General Motors customers and to give customers a level of satisfaction that was not available anywhere else. We are extremely pleased with the feedback we have received by all of you over the past 3 years.

I hope I can come back here (as well as other sites) and tell you all we're back for good but right now all I can say is to stay tuned.

Thanks for understanding and it was great to read about all of your stories and see the delivery pictures. We'd especially like to thank all of you peeps who spoke up and demanded something better - you gave us something to work towards and really challenged our abilities.

Thanks again to everyone here!

Your GMConnects Team

Not sure it's accurate, though. My dealer said he got his allocation a couple of weeks ago and that I was at 3000. gmconnects still says dealer doesn't have allocation and I'm at 2030.

Thanks for getting it working, Hylton! Can you see if QKVCT1 is correct?

I would check it with Becky. Dealers aren't always honest.

I dont think so. Seems to be up and down randomly. Last updat I recevied was 300 status on 11/3 and it moved to 3400 on 11/8 per my dealer. Doesnt seem too reliable.

Update:

Sorry folks but the service should be considered suspended for now. There is a possibility that we will offer the service at the dealer level but that's all I can say at the moment.

I wish I could say that the service is back up for you as I know we built something which the customer wanted and appreciated. I will say that others have taken notice - I'll have more to tell at the appropriate time.

Thanks, Hylton. You should offer it as a pay service. Say charging a $25 fee to let a user track one order from start to finish. I think you'd come out pretty good.

Thanks for the suggestion but we believe customers deserve this level of service at no additional cost.

I agree. But I'd be willing to pay for it rather than not have it at all, or harassing poor Becky every day for an update.

Becky doesn't mind I'm sure... and she does a great job. It adds value to the Camaro experience for sure! But Id like to have a more robust experience . For instance my dealer was able to tell me today! that he has an invoice and that it forecast a delivery date!! I have a 4300 status provided by Becky today which is more than I knew yesterday. Hope a robust customer interface is picked up by GM.

I have this vision of clicking on a link and having a transportation map with a little Camaro updated real time moving across the map heading my way.

I yearn for the day they have real time video of our cars moving down the assembly line. How cool would that be?
