Chevyboy,

Is there any way to get an indication of how long a vehicle will be in I status? Mine is a company car, and our fleet people are ready to pull the plug on the order and force me to get something else off our approved list. And I really don't want a Ford Explorer.

KJF

So close Chevy! 90 miles away, now we hope for a truck this week. Doesn't matter, we're in the home stretch now. One more leg to go. Dealer has promised to call so I can be there when she arrives.

I'm like a little kid, won't be much sleep this week. It's all good.

Snoman, what a roller coaster! Somehow I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. But the closer it gets the more I'm thinking this is the week baby!

Yours is getting closer as well finally. Race to the finish for you guys!

Im interested in the same answer. Mine is in I, went "In Bay at Facility" then some kind of hold released and been there since. I'm driving an extra car right now but they need it for a jobsite. Wish I knew what the hold p was since its not even at one of the QC locations, just sitting in a Bay at the Detroit Assembly plant since the 27th.

Anyway, inspection (I) status means two things. 1.) Of course the vehicle is being inspected. Yes. But 2.) when a vehicle sits in I status for prolonged periods of time, theres obviously something that needs to be repaired. Most of the time it's minor crap, but when repair has 50+ cars a week that need minor 2-4hr fixes, things can get backed up. There are only so many repair men, and although they work 12hrs each shift/7days, they can't keep up with the line. Once a launch phase is over, and repairs dip a bit, they usually can stay caught up. You must be trained for repair, they dont let just anybody tear apart brand new cars.. I'd like to get into repair, seeing as how it's apart of my background, but I don't have enough "seniority" so whatever..

Anyway, I think I also stated what the most common repairs are. But some cars that may get scratched because some asshole didnt put a cotton cover thingy over his belt, or accidentally bumped it with his/her watch, which also should be covered, gets sent back to paint for reprocess.. But the status never changes. Even if a car is deemed a total loss, for whatever reason, it can be left in I status until they figure out who's gonna eat the costs, and then that build is assigned a new VIN, and the process started over. There's a lot to it all.. So don't think ppl are just sitting around playing cards, getting high and drinking... Although no one has said it, I'm sure many have thought it.
This might help you guys with your question..

Some have gotten released in a couple days, some have been there almost 40 days. No way to tell really.

John,

Have you thought about changing your order from cherry red to redline? I've heard it looks real nice.
