The car was literally JUST ACKNOWLEDGED by GM YESTERDAY. Why would they already be shipping techs off to some GM school to learn how to work on the C8?

.. pick any Vette service dealer carefully ....especially if you live out in the sticks like me. No matter when... Iíd be real concerned about even getting the oil changed at a local Chevy dealer who has a parking lot full of Silverados and might be lucky to sell a couple Vettes a year. Some of these guys donít even know how to get the car up on the hoist without doing damage.

Paul koerner aka the corvette mechanic who does the seminars at carlisle and bowling green works at key chevrolet in middletown ct..

he is so good...he is one of the reasons i did not buy a porche or jaguar...

gm trains their world class gm twchs quite well and for those that knkw how to properly ise the 300k mile database to resolve issues there is no brand that surpasses excellence in service.

It'll be the same guys that were working on your C7's. Does that answer it?

After spending years on Rennlist and coming back to check out the C8 as a daily driver.... this forum is just as I remember, the most amateur questions I've ever seen. The car was just announced and YES techs will be trained, Chevy will make plenty of SOP's for the techs to utilize to maintain and repair the car, just like any new car.

If companies like Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini etc. hire new techs to work on their cars all the time, it's called training with instructions, Chevy will do the same. This car isn't a nuclear powered rocket, its a mid-engine car, its still an ICE motor just moved, what's so difficult to wrap your head around that it won't be that much more difficult to work on? I guarantee you've never turned a wrench on a car or you would understand this.

Rest assured that the techs will be properly trained by the time the first C8 hits the dealers. The training may have already started.

I purchased a first MY C6 and a first MY C7. Each car has only been back for service once. The first MY jink is constantly regurgitated, however (IMHO) hasnít been true in decades.
