Is There A Better Way To Check Your Status besides VIZ?

I have been checking the status, and it looks like VIZ sometimes does not check, but once every 3 days.
Can you call GM to have them check for you?

Try your dealer... please keep in mind that VIZ does this as a FAVOR to you. He does have a full time job that may be a little more important than updating 100 or so fanatics about the progress of a car they DIDN'T buy from him... If he coundn't get an update to you for a few days, oh well... try calling YOUR OWN dealer.

Yes, call the dealer who's making MONEY off of you for buying the car! It's THEIR JOB, make THEM work. Tell them to close the solitare game on their pc's and log into GM

Then again, there's some dealers like Anna at Spart Chevy, Eric at Classic Chevy, and myself that are PROACTIVE in letting our customers know when there is a status change.

Been my experience that Viz was way more on top of things far as tracking than my dealer was. At one point my salesperson was calling me with info i had already gotten from Viz the week before.

That is just not the way it should be....I always check status, to keep my customers informed, after all.....this is a Camaro order! Maybe I'm too much of an enthusiast?!

My dealer was fairly on top of things. he emailed me the big mile stones... 2000, TPW, VIN, shipping... The rest I got from the VIZ. Funny story. I received an email from my dealer on Monday 8/10 that my car had been built on 8/5 and he gave me the VIN. I didn't tell him I already had it! He also said that the car shipped out and was currently in Dearborn... Yea, I knew that bu didn't tell him! Well later that day I got a PM that my car left Dearborn that afternoon. So Tuesday 8/11 I emailed my dealer and all I said was "IS IT THERE YET?" He responds with... "Well I have good news, your car left Dearborn yesterday but I am thinking you already knew that!" He was right... Car showed up Wednesday 8/12!

Moral of the story if I would have left it alone, i would have found out from my dealer in a very timely manner but i was too excited to not bug VIZ but anyone using his services should realize he does this when he can... and we all appricate him, and all the others who help us through the wait.

And we basically answered it. His dealer.

I think what everyone that repied was a little taken back by was his comment about there being a better way. It implies that VIZ is not doing a very good job keeping up with the requests in a timely manner. Thats not really fair to him since he does this as a favor. Now I don't know the VIZ personally but if was going through all that and someone was bitching about how long it took to get back, i'd be a little pissed. But, thats just me.

I know, and the OP may not understand the Viz's situation right now..

You Guys Are Not In This For The Hobby

I noticed a lot of you guys on this website are a** holes.
You know nothing about cars and you bought a new camaro bust because it is cool and new. Most of you will probably sell it in a year or less. Some of you guys are very very disrespectful.

That might be true for a small percentage, but a very large part are true Camaro and GM enthusiasts. Some are just a bit taken back when someone new as yourself seems to be not giving respect to someone that goes above and beyond on his own as a favor. We are all humbled by Viz's kindness and all the others who help you know who you are.Just relax check out camarotracking.com or register at moderncamaro.com to check. Welcome to the site.

Seems this is directed mostly towards me, and thats fine, no worries. I was just pointing out the fact that it is not his job to keep you in the know so cut him some slack if he is late getting you your information. I know we are all exicted about our cars. I hear the VIZ is actually having some computer issues, not sure what but another member (friend) told me that VIZ has been slow lately. And you wanted to know other avenues to check, we gave you those. Sorry if I appeared to be attacking you, that was not my intent. I doubt most of the people here will sell their cars in a year. I have an 89 IROC that we picked up brand new in June 1989... you were saying something about only buying the Camaro b/c it was "cool and new"? I have travelled hundreds of miles to various camaro shows and am currently signed up with my room booked to go to the Camaro mecca in Adel, GA in April. You were saying something about "not in it for the hobby"? Whos disrespecting who?

My post wasnt directed to only you...I just dont want others to get in this thread and start bashing the guy. Im thinking he didn't know Viz' status and I didnt want the OP to start calling anyone else a'holes etc.

Thank you for your opinion but your post itself falls in the disrespectful category also.

Feel lucky your dealer did that. I ordered my car on 10-22-09 and it is at 3000 with a TPW of 11-23-09 and my dealer has not called me once. I even called and asked him when it was at 2000 to keep me informed with the progress of the order. Come to think of it I even had to call him to get the order number and he have me hassle about wanting it.

Camarotracking.com seems to allow you to enter just a pre-production order number now and it updates....once a vin is assigned it automatically continues tracking past 3800 how often i can not say.... i definately appreciate EVERYTHING VIZ does for us and this forum. He has his own customers calling him wanting their status let alone all of us.... give the guy a break.
