Thanks,
JRH (jhoop302)
Are they making YOU come up with the $5-6K? Or is it covered by GM/Dealer?
I assume they will have you taken care of with a vehicle in the meantime, and not a Spark/Sonic?
Oh, and is THEIR insurance covering the loss?

Just curiosity...

Glad it's getting resolved. Issues like this gotta suck.

Good job GM/Chevrolet/Berger/First State

1. I never demanded a new car. I merely stated that I should not HAVE to be forced to buy a new [read "different"] car when mine was totaled through no fault of my own. If I had been driving the car, I would accept the loss.

2. The difference in price between a good, used 2012 ZL1 and a new 2013 ZL1 is only about $5-6K considering rebates, etc.

3. Yes, the OP really was to just let everyone know what happened to #1635 that appeared on the ZL1 registry many months ago.

4. We actually made 3 payments on the car while the car was in the dealer's possession while they tried to figure out what to do about the paint issues [read "left the car there for weeks on end without actually doing anything."] I believe the last time I drove the car was the weekend of October 25, 2013.

5. GM and Berger Chevrolet (Grand Rapids, Michigan) have stepped in and are paving [not paying] the way for a new 2013 ZL1 to be sent to First State Chevrolet for me to purchase.

6. We have apologized to many of the employees at First State for the actions taken by many of the people who have been infuriated by this whole story and have called First State to voice their opinions. Anyone who thinks the dealership has not been affected by all of this must have his head in the sand.

7. We want to thank everyone for their support. We never expected this to take on a whole life of its own. A special thanks goes out to the suppliers who have so graciously stepped up to provide parts at their own expense to help ease the heartache we have experienced in this ordeal.

8. I am not the biggest tech guy out there, and I have never made it a practice to post on forums, don't have a Facebook page, etc. But I do plan to stick around on this forum, and I hope to meet many of you in person at various events.

9. When the situation is resolved, I will post photos of the new car. I understand that it will be about two weeks before the insurance check is cut, the old car is paid off, the new car arrives, and a new purchase contract will be signed by my wife and I for the PURCHASE of our new ZL1.

Thanks,
JRH (jhoop302)
I wonder if there were multiple joy rides, and he finally got caught not being able to handle the HP!

I sincerely hope you will be pleased and satisfied with the resolution.
Can't wait to see your new ride.

Are you getting the same color?

Unless his has already been removed from inventory, this is the only new 2013 ZL1 shown online at Berger:

http://www.bergerchevy.com/new/Chevr...ac2a3e896e.htm

Red with black+red interior.

Damn that's nice...

Seriously.... you guys are gonna force my hand in getting a ZL1, aren't you?

How does one explain to their wife, going from a Volt to a ZL1, with no steps in-between?!?!? Little help, please???

Great to hear of this resolution! Good luck to y'all and your new zl1!

Granted it could have gone much faster, I think the time frame of months was pretty fast considering the complexity of the issue!

Given the mass of this thread nearly took it from 'bright star' to 'black hole', great timing!

Glad it was worked out to your satisfaction Hoop. Thanks to all involved in the resolution of a most unfortunate situation. And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.....
Will this modification void my new warranty?

Of course, I'm here to help. See, the Volt is a very efficient vehicle. It's so efficient that no other current Chevrolet comes close to that efficiency except the ZL1. How do I figure, the ZL1 gets pretty close to damn near the most amount of power out of a gallon of gas that can be gotten, see, efficiency.

Practice in the mirror before you explain it to your wife, and don't forget the diamond necklace.

Just saw the used ZL1 at First State Chevy they were trying to pass off. Tires were changed because it's Certified. That's a matter of course when going through the cert process if they are below 6/32" tread. The $50K they are asking for it is a joke though and I def would have passed on it too.

Damn. Screwed two ways to Sunday. See:
1) I can't get the ZL1 if I get her a diamond necklace
2) No way in HELL I can say that with a straight face



Hoop, hope you enjoy your new ride, have many trouble-free and care-free miles, and we already magically know your first three mods

Nick, you guys make anything for a 2013 Volt? I have a Volt Premium, all options just in case you need to know...

I'll buy stuff from ya just BECAUSE you're making that offer! Can't really buy a CAI for my Volt, which has an 84HP 4cyl driving a generator! And I can't fathom buying handling components for it either!

PM me with what ya got.

Cheers!

No kidding haha.

As soon as they fired that baby up they were responsible.
Management let the service writer in on the excuse of getting a phone charger, a freaking phone charger!! Management at that dealership owns this 100%, all the way!

I'm not concerned - we've already had a GMer say GM is involved, as did the OP. GM isn't dropping the ball on this one...

Now it's just waiting for the super-slow wheels to turn.

Personally, if I were GM + Dealer, I'd get the car into 1st State, and spot it to Hoop to get him in it as fast as possible. They spot on new deals, they can spot on this one. Good will and all...

A couple days is one thing, a couple weeks is another. Anything can happen in that time. Hope all goes well, nice to see steps are taken in the right direction towards a resolution. Still curious about the specifics. Hope they aren't making him pay $10K + $2K tax + $1K dealer BS fees. So, I'm holding off on the celebration until it's official, not just a proposal.
