Those of you who have your 2013 already built and shipped, can you check your status on Chevy Order Tracking and see if yours has moved back to Production Complete. This website is going to be more accurate than the others and post your results.

On July 11th, the Chevy Order Tracking website has moved my Volts progress backwards from Shipped to Production Complete.

I just called the Volt Advisor Team and it's confirmed - MY VOLT IS STILL AT THE PLANT. I was told there was no scheduled shipping date and the Volt is on a Quality Hold. I asked if this was the case for just my Volt or all 2013 Volts and I was told most likely it would be all 2013 models.

If you have not been following the 2013 ordering / shipping threads, here is a recap. My 2013 Volt was built on June 7, 2012 along with around 238 from June 6 & 7, 2012. The Hamramck Plant closed for 3 weeks during the summer as a regularly scheduled break. They re-opened on July 2nd and my Volt was advanced to Shipped / En Route on July 5th. On July 9th, the updates stated that my Volt left the plant property and the dealer was invoiced. I went to my dealer on July 10th to work out the finacing (0.9%) and I was given an estimated delivery date of July 20th + or -. On July 11th, the Chevy Order Tracking website has moved my Volts progress backwards from Shipped to Production Complete.

I'm not surprised, in a thread last month, it was mentioned all 2012 left on the line at the shutdown and all 2013 were going to go thru a second QC check. I had posted mid August at the earliest for 2013's based on this. It likely nothing new, just that the status system wasn't following the factory flow on the ground.

GM does this at restart and new model, same was done last year for the 2012's I believe

The two 2013 Volt Orders I'm tracking: #100414 Status 4150 Invoiced to Dealer (09Jul12) and 2013 Volt #100748 Status 4B00 Bayed for Shipping (05Jul12) <this one is going to be My Little Red Pal - both haven't changed backwards since their last update yet - the Volt Advisor Ian eMailed a couple hours ago to say that the Car was on a QC Hold though. I was seeking Carrier Tracking Numbers for Rail / Truck Transport to Rochester, NY.

My status was updated on 7/11 from the 4150 Dealer Invoiced code to another 4B00 (Your car is bayed and is waiting for transportation by truck, rail or transfer to vendor.). I'm HOPING that means they just checked it again in preparation to actually ship it out.
And I think there may have been partial confusion because I have heard that sometimes the vehicles "leave the plant" by moving to the other side of a fence, but they actually haven't actually gone anywhere productive.
Let's all pray that our Volts get shipped soon!!!

This is curious, as cars.com shows over 100 of the 2013s at dealerships?

My tracking continues to say shipped/en route. Sucks to hear it may be delayed but if GM thinks it's necessary to do more QC they can keep it as long as they like. Less of a buzzkill then a recall.

My 2011 status changed like that too. It was here, bayed there, then here again, etc. My understanding is the status does not always reflect where the car is physically located. Sometimes these are system inputs and adjustments that are too fine grained to relate to actual physical movement. You know what they say about a watched pot...

Your posting about delays and disappointment bring back memories to our first batchs to come off the line at the end of 2010. It's the delivery delays that were the most gut wrenching. And yes, we had those two week QC delays too ! Good luck to you all and enjoy the new cars soon ...hard to believe the 2013's are almost here !

I don't think it is unusual to have several 4B00 codes. There are a few shipment transfers that occur to get from the plant to the dealer. I remember the delivery anxiety very clearly. The worst was knowing that the last shipment was to the main Mid-Atlantic drop off point in Annapolis MD, which is close to my house but still took almost a week to get to the dealer.

Here is my history for a point of reference. I hope it helps. The bottom line is you will love your Volt!

Thanks for the encouraging replies

On my order history I do not see 4200 (shipped) so I took the 4106 as being shipped. Either way, the Volt is still at Hamtramck and at least they are doing a 2nd quality control check. Thats a bonus, ensuring my Volts top notch and ready to roll.

GMConnects website down all day. I wonder what crashed the server?

At the same time I checked the Chevy Order Tracking site and it works. Now my 2013 Volt is listed as shipped / en-route. I just can not see what the update was.

No, the server is part of the online order tracking system. The QC is at the Hamtramck Plant and is in place to double checking the new 2013 models to make sure they all meet the new standards in regards to the new model year upgrades.

By the way, who is responsible for the GMConnects order tracking site? I can't believe its been 2 days now that it's been entirely down. If you google GMConnects Down, you see other forums stating the same, that the site is down. Is this normal, that the sites down for a few days?

2013 Volts are now shipping!

GMConnects is now working and my 2013 Volt is in transit. It shipped on 7-15-12 and was last in TOLEDO OTTAWA , which is a couple hours outside Detroit.

The 2nd round of Quality Checks are Complete!

We all remember the LONG wait for the shipping part of our order tracking. We also learned more than we expected about rail yards and trains.

BUT one day GM is going to activate that onstar system BEFORE shipping it to US ;-))

Darn-it! I guess either the QC Lot is First-In Last-Out or my 2013 Volt #100748 failed QC. I'm into my 4th week since Build Complete Status (4000). Oh, dear, . . . Life is good! Although I've been there on tenterhooks for each of my five wonderful children as my wife entered Labor I never get used to the unpredictable agonizing wait. But wait we must. Now, not much different than waiting to settle my fears over the birth of a child, I now wait and wonder about the cause for the delay - I couldn't help but notice that the OP (2013 Volt) above both of our cars went Status (4100) on the same day my Volt #100748 hasn't "Left Plant Property" yet. I'm only 6Hrs Drive from the Hamtramck Plant in Michigan (we live in Upstate NY) and I feel like I want to go and see what's wrong as nobody can get me a Status Update other than - Just "Wait-N-See" - Everything will be OK - I was hoping to schedule a 2 week vacation with the Volt while the New Car Smell was at its peek. Now after Cooking in the Very Hot Summer Sun for nearly a Month that peek will have past. Oh, well. No Problem. I just hope it doesn't smell like the Repair Bay Sweaty Garage Odor so typical of cars that have had extensive repairs - I had hoped that the mileage on-delivery would be very very low - but . . . so many 'What If' Scenarios fly past me that I'm exhausted. Good Night! I'll sleep this one off too . . . <grin>.
