  • Watch the Corvette Technicians

    We should start watching the technicians at our respective dealerships and see who and when the "chosen" one or ones are sent to the training sessions GM will be holding for the Mid Engine. Maybe GM won't hold their children as collateral while they are being sworn to secrecy.

    I talked to my Corvette Master Tech exactly one week ago, and he said that training on the ME will not start priori to the reveal (will be between the reveal and customer cars’ arriving at the dealerships).

    That way GM does not worry about a single Tech somewhere in America disclosing what they are not ready to publicly share.
    Z06 coming late this summer: Hypersonic Gray HTC, two tone blue interior, complete high wing/aero package. CCB’s, with every piece of visible carbon fiber available to us. Lifetime, annual contributors, and 24 year members of National Corvette Museum. Home is the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

      So the new owner and the tech will get to figure out what's wrong together. Hopefully with the crack quality control guys and that "last" inspector there won't be "any"

        I agree with your statement, “Hopefully with the crack quality control guys and that "last" inspector there won't be "any.”

        The reveal and the first customer cars, if the C7 is any indication, will be 8 months apart. Eight months if plenty of time to conduct a full scale training program for GM Tech’s.

        As with the C7 process, not every Tech will be trained at first, just the two that the dealership determines are their service dept’s best Tech reps in terms of Corvette maintenance and repairs.

        And just like the C7 process, no dealership will be able to even sell a next gen Corvette, unless they send two sales personnel to specialized C8 sales training,, separately send two Service Tech to GM’s M&R schools, and, the dealership first buys the full compliment of tools that GM has specified as the dealership needs to properly service the ME.

        When my first-week-produced C7 Z06 arrived at the dealership, my Tech did the complete PDI, including installation of its unique splitter, spoiler and skirts without and issue. And since, neither I nor many individuals I recommended that they take their C7 to this dealership for M&R, haved experience a single M&R issue over the last five model years.

        As you noted WWR, hopefully their will not be any issues.

          We all realize that having an excellent GM service department is, regrettably, sometimes hit or miss. Here is a useful thread for those who have not yet found a really good one for their Corvette.

            Hopefully won't be any issues but I still want my C8 to go thru the supplemental quality assurance process that a few Corvettes are randomly selected for as they come off the assembly line. My C7 was selected for this process and whether coincidental or not, I've never had an issue with my 2014 C7.

            I wonder if there is some way to increase the chances of being chosen such as day of week, option selections, knowing the right people or maybe even a nice monetary donation.

              The only way I know of increasing one’s chances of a Global Customer Audit (GCA), its formal name, is to do a Buyer’s Tour and to ask for that to happen as the car comes off the assembly, and even then getting one is far from a guarantee.

              We have had the Buyers Tour on our C6 and our C7 (Buyers Tours for both), and we will be having the Buyers Tour on our C8 if that program is available.

              I am now putting together a thread on that program, and will later link it here.
