Corvette Assembly Plant

Because we host this newsgroup, through our website <b>V..rroom</b>, we felt the readership of this newsgroup might be interested in the
following article...
On the C5/C6 Registry Hot News, looks like somebody at Chevrolet is finally listening to Corvette owners and wants to help out with problems. You might want to post this on your site for everybody needing help. Enjoy!
DIRECT ONLINE FEEDBACK CENTER - UP AND RUNNING AT THE CORVETTE ASSEMBLY PLANT!
Members - Recently we discovered that the Corvette Assembly Plant has instituted a DIRECT ONLINE FEEDBACK CENTER for you to talk about your Corvette. We made some calls and found out that this was not just an exercise in e-mailing into cyber space. We have been informed that there is a team of five individuals who will be reading ALL of these important posts sent directly in to the Bowling Green Assembly Plant about your C6 or C5 (yes, they do want to hear from C5 owners!) and redirecting them to the proper individuals regarding your input.
PLEASE NOTE - THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE TOLD YOU THAT THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ANSWER YOU DIRECTLY UNLESS THEY NEED SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON AN ITEM YOU MAY HAVE WRITTEN TO THEM ABOUT.
That is why, after you sign in with your model year and the last eight digits of your VIN number, you will have an opportunity to inform them of your concerns, or praise them for the 99% of your Corvette that they produced correctly! After you have done this, the next screen will ask you for your contact information so that they can get back in touch with you if your concern or praise warrants it.
So take advantage of the opportunity and go to:

Tell the folks at the Plant what you think of the amazing work they do, building our Corvettes each and every day!
Members, over the last ten years that the Registry has been around, many, many of you have asked how you can get in touch of someone at GM! Well, here it is - it is for you to use and I assured the folks at the Plant that our members would take full advantage of an opportunity to voice their ideas. I can't speak for other sports car companies, but this is a fantastic owner resource that Corvette has made available to you to give direct information back to them. And the really big news is, they REALLY want to hear from you!!!

Thank you for the info..it's about time that GM started to listen to their buyers concerns. Some times I wonder if any one at GM actually drives the cars they design....some of the features are useless and stupid whereas some things that could aid a driver are lacking.
When I worked on the F-14 design team we were super careful to listen all the users comments /suggestions .

Agree, site looks like a friendly vehicle to streamline feedback. Good that it's plant & platform oriented (XLR & C5/C6 side by side) as opposed to a brand/division oriented. Might make GM more nimble. The C5 steering lock situation was a prime example of allowing the change process to tie the hands of knowledgeable folks. Hopefully we'll see less of that from here on out. If this works for the 'vette, maybe it can work for the other critical marques (Pontiac & Buick) as well.
The Lutz auto show comment that marque 'reputation' is lacking and must change seemed to be honest and on the mark. Heeding early feedback should improve reputation.
I think this reality is long overdue. As a driver of GM vehicles, I do get tired of friends asking me, "is it still runing?"
On the F-14, you guys did well by avoiding the bureaucracy typical of many development/design efforts! I was on the customer side of the fence for that. We had one shot at an F-111B replacement. Doing things lean and quick really made it happen.
That was a make-or-break situation with no second chances allowed. Until now, GM hasn't been in that situation. Perhaps they are getting real.

No question. A humbler, wiser phoenix will emerge from ash stock of GM's historic lethargy. They now find themselves in the a political spotlight; surprisingly, necessitating them to be more responsive to consumer demand's. Some real efffiencies, and design standards should evolve from the leadership of Wagoner, Lutz, Cowger, and Company. Kerkorian and Trisenda learned that lesson the hard way.
GM's feedback request from the consumers should allow them to dial into the correct frequency; as opposed to Dealer rhetoric. While it's a good start; a lot of ship have left port with good intentions; only to bear their bones to an oceanic plateau. Let's see; if, their production, marketing and design teams can produce the 'through put' of the C5R; time will tell.

From my perspective as squadron aviator and then as NADEP project officer, Grumman was not particularly interested in user input. That may have been because the marketing department kept the users and the engineers well segregated.

As a fleet user(VF-31) and guy who flew operational test(VX-4) in the thing, I have to agree. The only A/C I have flown that seemed to have the pilot and maintainer in mind was the F-16(VF-126).

With Thundergod designing the tail hook, (item used to slow forward progress and drag you down), why does that not surprise me. I always thought the F-16 was light years ahead of the F-14 and many other planes of the era. Just the build numbers of three to four times as many built tells you something, at just over half the cost. Granted, they were built for different purposes but the F-14 will never get the acceptance of the F-16.
Sadly though it looks like another consultant induced touchie feelie program to be pointed at in another GM board meeting.
