JJ, well that sucks, get the car fixed when the rings are available and order a 02', you should make out ok.

Carl told me to wait and not take my 8 months on order car, as it so close to the 02 model, which should have the oil consumption problem addressed. I took delivery and I am using oil, immediately.
CMD says my car needs rings <B>But they are not available as yet. WTF? Maybe in a month. I am PO'd. Re-ringing the engine at 900 miles would seriously and substantially devalue my car IMO.
A replacemnt engine with newstyle rings doesn't please me either...collectible car no more with non matching numbers.
I told customer service I want a new car.
NO NUMBERS ON BLOCK OR TRANS--NOT A ISSUE,ALL THAT MATTERS IS ITS A 243 CASTING.
Mine does not use oil--but if it did,some people would be getting phone calls to their homes!!!!!

Tainted warrantee history..immediate major problem
Has the dealer diagnosed it yet? Checked for leaks? PCV operation? Oil consumption test?
I wish you the best of luck with resolving this, and I also hope you give GM the opportunity to determine if this is a situation covered under their obligations under the new vehicle warranty.
