Weekly Corvette Ordering Constraints

As always, CorvetteBlog is first to get you the complete list of current constrained items when ordering Corvettes from Chevrolet.

2013 Corvettes ordered this week will be built during the week of August 13th (no later than August 16th).

However, there is no allocation for ZR1.

There continue to be two constrained parts/items on non-ZR1s:

Q6B 20 Spoke Chrome Aluminum Wheels: There is a material restriction from the manufacturer of this wheel, a matter they still expect to see resolved within 4 weeks.

Z30 60th Anniversary Stripe Package on Convertibles: There continues to be a delay in the production of 60th Anniversary Corvette Convertibles with the Z30 Stripe Package. Officially, this is a material restriction, which they still expect to be resolved within 4 weeks.

I had expected the restriction on Z30 Convertibles to be lifted by now, but my theory is that backorders are being filled.  With the first 2013 model we had ordered with this option, the car had been built, but was waiting for the top to be manufactured and installed.  This process must be continuing.  When the backorders are handled, the ordering restriction will be lifted.

If you're looking to custom order any of the seven Corvette models: Coupe or Convertible, Grand Sport Coupe or Convertible, 427 Convertible, Z06, or ZR1, please look no further than right here at CorvetteBlog.com.

    Well, well, I bit the bait!!! I bought a Corvette 427. Boy, it is gorgeous, really fast. I wish to keep on talking it up, but that is as far as I can go. The car came with a defect on the steering column. The dealer replaced the 3 components responsible for the steering of the Corvette. It did not fix the problem. I got informed that GM was in a hurry redesigning a new steering column for the vehicle. Finally the steering column was fixed, but it took more than 21 days! The car was opened and put on the surgery table at least 5 times. What is the result of it:
    1) car leaks (my driveway ruined)
    2) a friction noise when you take off. Was told that is a normal noise for GM 6 speed transmission. The only problem is the noise was not there before surgery at the dealer.
    3) the carpet going up to the center console does not cover the spot anymore, so I can see the transmission of my Vette. (The service manager told me to keep an eye on it; seems the carpet got cut short at GM factory, and it is not covering the way it was supposed to. To my comfort, he will order a new carpet in the event that the transmission shows to me again.
    By now you may think this is enough, right?
    Well, I am sorry to disappoint you but there is more: going back a month for the time we were purchasing the Corvette, the salesperson offered us a $500.00 rebate. What he forgot to tell us was that by accepting the $500.00 we automatically waved our rights for “love it or return it, no questions asked.” hahaha,hahahaha. It is a joke; not mad at the salesperson, just feel so stupid trusting him. This part we definitely deserve.
    So, now GM is off of the hook and the consumer is beaten up.
    My name is Carlos and I approve this message.
