nort99 Posted January 1, 2007 Share Posted January 1, 2007 This is a long story so read on.My son-in-law and daughter want to get two new cars this afternoon after they took myself and Sue out for lunch with the grandkids. They wanted me to go along to help with the negotiations cause neither one are to good at that, they like to say yes way to early. Took me to Claimjumper for my birthday lunch, all went very well got some real now presents and had a great time. After we left Sue was suppose to go to there house to watch the kids while we all went to look and try to get them two cars. This is where the day went down hill for me. We got to there house shut off my c6 and got out. My fob was still in the car and the car is not suppose to lock when it is in the car. For the ones that do not know the c6 are keyless entry and start. If you leave your fob in the car and get out the horn is suppose to honk three time and warn you that you left you fob where you should not have. Which did not happen, as I discoved that I left it in the car and went to open the door back up (now all this happen in about 20 seconds) the doors locked. Now I have no way to get in the vette. Now you do have a key that will get you in the hatchback and then you can get the doors open. BUT the key is right next to the fob in the car. I only got one fob when I got the vette, so could not use the second one to get in. So called the dealer told them what happen and they said I have never heard of the happening, hold on for a minute. After about five hold on's they said they have no way of helping me. But gave me a number to call 1-800-chevusa. Of which I did, They need my vin number and told me that I was covered and they would sent out a company to unlock the car. I said great. Now I was sure all was going to be fine as soon as they get here to unlock the door. So I left the wife at the kids house and we left to go to the ford place where they want to get a Mustang GT and another car for my daughter. Scot found a nice 2006 Mustang GT that he was drooling over, Melissa found a 2005 car to replace her 2003. So now we are talking money and trades, and the cell phone rings. It's the wife she is not very happy and pissed. This is not a good thing. The people that Chev sent out to unlock the vette was having some troubles getting into the car, as he was working on getting the door open he broke the drivers side window. Now it is in a million pieces and the only thing holding it together is the solar flim. But he did get my fob out. He calls is boss and tell him what happened, After the boss got done givng his tech hell he told the wife to get it fixed and he would pay the bill just take it anywhere you want to. After we got off the I calm down a bit and did so more saying no to the saleman... So we finally left with the 06 GT and the 05. Got back to there house and there is my vette sitting there with no window in it. So we left the kids house and drove home before it got an colder as it was. I did find out that the heater works well.I was looking forward to showing my Birthday C6 off at the party tonight to everyone. But this kinda just took us out of the mood. So now I have to wait until Tuesday to get her fixed up. The END.Hope Everyone has a HAPPY NEWYEARS. :D Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
