    ZL1 Production and Shipping Stopped

    I don't have a link to this. Below is from a message to dealers from GM:


    All Camaro ZL1 models produced to date are currently being held by General Motors for a quality assessment. At this moment, the duration of the hold is undetermined, and may last a few more weeks. As soon as the hold is cleared, a note will be sent to all dealers to advise that 2012 Camaro ZL1 shipments are underway.



    Because of the hold, the upcoming Dealer Order Submission Process (DOSP) cycle that was to be dedicated to ZL1 is being postponed. This DOSP cycle was scheduled to start this Thursday, March 1, 2012, and continues through Tuesday, March 6, 2012. A new date for this DOSP cycle will be provided in the near future.

    Subject:
    Update on 2012 Camaro ZL1 Shipments and DOSP

    The purpose of this note is to provide you with an update on 2012 Camaro ZL1 production and vehicle shipment plans.

    All Camaro ZL1 models produced to date are currently being held by General Motors for a quality assessment. At this moment, the duration of the hold is undetermined, and may last a few more weeks. As soon as the hold is cleared, a note will be sent to all dealers to advise that 2012 Camaro ZL1 shipments are underway.

    Because of the hold, the upcoming Dealer Order Submission Process (DOSP) cycle that was to be dedicated to ZL1 is being postponed. This DOSP cycle was scheduled to start this Thursday, March 1, 2012, and continues through Tuesday, March 6, 2012. A new date for this DOSP cycle will be provided in the near future.

    We regret to have to undertake these actions, especially given the high anticipation for the new Camaro ZL1. We ask for your patience and will continue to keep you posted on any developments regarding production and vehicle shipments from Oshawa.

    Sincerely,

    One car actually got delivered to a customer in TX. GM told them to bring the car back to the dealership, and it was being shipped back to the plant.

    My understanding is that the customer will be well rewarded for his inconvenience (considering he paid for the car in full).

    Must be a pretty good/bad problem for a stop sale/production. Of course, we will never know.

    Due diligence with a high profile car. Remember how embarrassing the 99 Cobra was for Ford?

    Wonder how this will play out. If the car was paid for in cash then there is no debtor secured interest in the car and GM could not "make" them return the car.

    What's going on? Do they not have enough for journalists to crash or something?
    "Christians should not hold dumb opinions about the natural world based solely on misreadings of the Bible, especially opinions that can be demonstrably falsified by Reason, lest the Faith be subject to ridicule and mockery." -- St. Augustine of Hippo.

    They overrated the HP, and then tried some half baked fixes.

    It wasn't a "half baked" fix. SVT jumped on it right away and replaced the exhaust system of every affected car.

    Some of the exhaust systems were crimped and didn't meet specs. When afew owners dyno'd their cars, they found them coming up short of expected power. SVT at the time, was pretty good about keeping direct contact with it's owners, and these folks called SVT directly. When the problem was determined, SVT replaced all the exhaust systems at no charge.

    Personally, I'd be pretty pissed off, if MY car were getting shipped back to Canada. I'd tell GM, this one is yours.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.
