WHen I took delivery with my last C6, I actually had some small issues.
But, GM fixed them, and I got an AWESOME car for a good price.

The 2014 C7 will have more issues than most because of the redesign.
But, if you can't handle it, don't buy a new model in the first year of production.
Very true, anytime you buy a brand new car in it's first year of production you have to expect issues, especially on something as new as the C7. It takes someone who really loves the car to have to deal with going back and forth to the dealership to get issues dealt with.

Buying the Chevy SS or C7 Vette I wouldn't mind going through the process of getting those issues dealt with

Not like the SS won't have problems.
not saying it will but with GM having a better record this time around it's likely we'll have a quality vehicle on our hands, but it was built by holden in Australia, and that may make some difference here.
