        Not unless it is paid for and submitted through an insurance company. You are still taking delivery of a brand new car. Once it hits the dealers lot, and they have accepted it, then circumstances change to damage and liability of any hidden defects that occurred after they took delivery. An example would be a hailstorm that came through and the dealers insurance paid the dealer for loss of value to that car.

          It should be very simple..... I assume all the first dealer did was order the car for you. The factory shipped it to Idaho. If the shipper accepted it as is, and it arrived damaged, the shipper pays. If the shipper noted the damage on his paperwork when he accepted the car, the factory pays. Either way, you do not have any financial responsibility for the repair. No one in the supply chain is a 'virgin' here. They have all dealt with this stuff before. It's just too bad it had to be your car. Stick to your guns and make absolutely certain it's repaired to your satisfaction. These guys can fix anything except a dead man!

            I think it was damaged in transit. Probably not the courtesy dealer or selling dealer's fault. It'll be covered but tough deal.

              I think that the Courtesy Delivery dealer inspects the cars once they are unloaded from the transport company.

              If it was noted during inspection then the transport company bears responsibility.

              Once the dealer inspects and signs off, then the Dealer bears the responsibility

              Thats how I understand it.

                If the damage was found by the delivering dealer and it was noted on the transportation receipt then the receiving dealer will file a warranty claim with GM to have it fixed.

                  Another reason why a dealer would not want to do courtesy deliveries. For a few hundred bucks, might not be worth it. Scratch on the car during transit and maybe courtesy dealer didn't notice it. Even if they did notice, what are they supposed to do with it?

                      Take a picture of it as it gets off the transporter, then submit a claim to GM (warranty program). GM can then work out who is going to pay for that repair with their contracted transporter, Jack Cooper Transport.

                        After the courtesy dealer does that, I assume they will then have to make arrangements for the repairs to be done. Not all dealers (including mine) do body or paint work in house. Anyway, I think I see why not all dealers provide courtesy delivery service.

                          Mine showed up with a minor paint blemish by the fuel door. I told my salesman about it and that they could fix it when I bring it in for my 500 mile oil change.

                            Curious John, wouldn't Mike already Own the car if he was/is doing a courtesy delivery? He would have already paid his dealer for it prior to going to pick it up, similar to a delivery at the NCM. I'm just asking, I have never done a courtesy delivery except my Museum delivery.

                              I took delivery of mine on October 2nd at my dealer and of coarse some of the accessories were not there but as to be expected. After having the car detailed and displayed at a Corvette annual car show it was pointed out that I have a defective driver side Headlight, Drip like run mark inside the lens. This defect has been mentioned on this forum before too. I even sent them a copy of the thread. I reported it to my dealer , whom is an hour + drive to, about it and have it ordered so that I would be making only one return trip for accessories and headlight installation. Well never happened, they had to see the headlight first before ordering. Dec 4th I took it to the dealer and all the accessories were installed and they looked at the headlight and said they would be InTouch. Here it is Jan 12th and no word from my dealer, Largest in the World, even after multiply enquiries. I am dealing with one of their General Managers too.
                              Anyone have any advice whom I should be reaching out too?

                                Yes, Mike currently owns the car, and why I suggested some caution about his refusal to “accept it.” The door will be perfectly fixed! The only question in my mind is whether the cost is born solely by GM; not at all, partially, or solely by JCT; or if that scratch was created by a dealership person moving it around the lot, fully by the dealership.
