  • Dealer C8 certified service list ?

    Just for fun, I drove our C8 into a nearby chevy dealer and asked the service manager if the dealership was GM certified of the C8. He said Yes. When I asked about the C8 dealer certified process, and how much the required C8 special tools package cost, he had no clue, and that was when the tap dance started. Can the forum start a list of C8 certified C8 dealers? is this a good idea? Your thoughts.

    The answer to your question as to tools is that a dealership can not work on nor sell a C8 unless they have purchased the C8 specific tool package (total cost of $1,454).

    Interesting to review them one by one. The most expensive one, a tool we expected to be on it, is a specialized “transmission support/service feature” (a cradling jack @ $441), e.g., a DCT transaxle is a costly piece. Then there is a manual park release wrench at $331; also required for such work is the $57 “support mount transmission table.” Another major one is the $200 “engine support fixture adapter.” All of these things we are not surprised to see for servicing a mid engine vehicle.

    The rest are 10 more minor tools costing a total of less than $400 collectively.

      I believe I saw something on Chevy website where you can type in your zip and get a list of certified dealers in your area. How accurate it is I don’t know.

        Thanks AZ Desert Dog. We appreciate that reminder, and here is the link you were referring to:

        HOWEVER, even when I type in dealers I positively know are Corvette certified, it does not come up with them on that list. So, FWIW.

          I thought that a C8 certified dealer had to send 2 people to Spring Mountain. Did that change? Also, for me, its not the cost of the tool package that the C8 dealers must have , but if they purchased it.

            The Spring Mountain training was delayed because of Coronavirus. I'm not sure if it's started up again or not, but a lot of dealers weren't able to get training before they started delivering them.

            The other issue with this requirement is that a dealer might have a trained C8 mechanic today, but if he quits tomorrow there's really no way for GM to know. Or for the consumer.
