Wednesday July 28th, 2021
We continue to take a variety of actions to manage our way through the global, industry-wide shortage of semiconductors so we can continue to support our dealers and customers by building our most in-demand vehicles.
If you have questions, please call the Ron Westphal Chevrolet Customer Care Team at 1-630-898-9630. Or, visit us online.

These most recent scheduling adjustments are being driven by temporary parts shortages caused by semiconductor supply constraints from international markets experiencing COVID-19-related restrictions.
Although the situation remains complex and very fluid, our global purchasing and supply chain, engineering and manufacturing teams continue to find creative solutions and make strides working with the supply base to minimize the impact to our highest-demand and capacity-constrained vehicles, including full-size trucks and SUVs, for our customers.
We will continue to communicate often to keep you informed. Thank you, as always, for all your continued cooperation and support as we manage these issues. We appreciate your collective efforts to put the customer at the center and managing limited inventory levels while leveraging the tools we’ve provided to continue to deliver vehicles at unprecedented turn rates.
