2010 Camaro 2SS Needs Repair
 
With less than 40 miles on my new 2010 Camaro 2SS :chevy:, she broke already. Sad, but true. Not that I've wanted this car for 14 years or that I've wanted this particular car for over 2 years. Finally got one and barely got 20 minutes of driving time in. It just quit. We think it's an electrical problem. Help.... I can't find anything online about the car having any problems. It's so new..... :cry: Thankfully my husband was driving the car at the time, only going about 3-5 miles per hour, cruising through a parking lot. The car just shut down. He coasted as far as he could to be out of the way of traffic, OMG so many people saw her broke... I'm so sad about it. Keys were locked in the ignition and it wouldn't come out of gear (Park). FYI for those that have this happen to them. In the Owners Manual on page 8-23, Shift Lock Manual Release. If it weren't for me having the owners manual the tow truck driver may have drug my car onto the flat bed. With the car in gear the back wheels were locked. Drag it up the flat bed. :mad0259: Boy did my stomach hit the pavement when he suggested that. Needless to say the tow truck company stored my baby overnight, for her windows were down and the keys were in the ignition, I didn't want to have her sit outside the dealerships service department. She's there now and awaiting the fine knowledge of Chevrolets, hopefully, highly trained technicians. I hope to have her back real soon. Kinda like a tease ya know...... Sucks majorly...:mad0260:

Sorry about your new car. Hopefully it will be a quick fix, bad cable or something small.

ljustin293 04-26-2009 09:33 PM

hmmm...what VIN?

heinzd01 04-26-2009 09:33 PM

Sorry to hear this. I hope it is nothing serious and you get the car back soon. Please let us know how it turns out.

cyberbro 04-26-2009 09:34 PM

Good luck, I sure hope this is not the Norm!

Did you check the battery connections ??? Hopefully it's some thing silly and they can get it repaired quickly.

tjbusa 04-26-2009 09:36 PM

I hope its a speedy recovery, post what you find out.....

Bumleb 04-26-2009 09:37 PM

The battery was actually abnormally hot. And the tow truck driver couldn't get a ground. Almost like there was a short and the car was throwing off major amounts of ampage....

Bumleb 04-26-2009 09:39 PM

Didn't realize I was on the California page. I just want to get the word out. I would hate for this to happen to anyone else. It was devastating. That much money put into something and it just quits.... Majorly bummed.:facepalm:

So much for quality control and quality assurance being used for the endless delays on this car. Time to think of another reason to justify more waiting by the public. For a touring car, it would sure suck to be afraid to take it out of your home city let alone cross country driving. Wow. :facepalm:

LosXC451 04-26-2009 09:40 PM

:cry:
Hope this problem doesn't come up with all the autos.

ZZcamaro 04-26-2009 09:41 PM

WTF!! That is what you get for not being stuck in QC like the majority of us!
Just kidding. That does suck, I had that happen to a friend, but it was a poor battery connection that did it.

Brokinarrow 04-26-2009 09:44 PM

tis why i am buying stick...

Brokinarrow 04-26-2009 09:45 PM

very heart breaking either way though, i would have cried, no joke!

This does suck and I'd be pissed if it were my car...BUT I'm sure there will be problems. It would be unrealistic to think that every car (whether delayed or on time) would be 100% perfect. I'm sure whatever it is its isolated and can be fixed. Good luck!

Any product that is mass manufactured is gonna have some that have issues. This being the only incident that we have heard of so far, I am not too concerned. If it becomes a trend, then we have a major issue. Hopefully, this isn't the case.

Keep up the good work sir... no double posters will get pass you..."Dick Tracey":thumbsup:

Let everyone know what it took to fix it.

cam2fst4u 04-26-2009 10:01 PM

is it possible you were using the valet key?

and did it just cut off or did it act like it ran out of gas?

I also feel your pain on this....

I had a SSr brand new driving home from the dealership maybe 20 miles on the ODO and it just cuts off... left me on the side of the road and wouldn't start... i was pretty upset. Turned out that the detail people cleaned the engine compartment and got water into the air filter? or something and the sensors picked up water in the intake and shut it down.. maybe something similar

Supermans 04-26-2009 10:01 PM

Sorry to hear that..Do you have any pics of your ride??

NUCAR 04-26-2009 10:04 PM

What VIN range?

lnsjr1 04-26-2009 10:04 PM

Did you take pics of the wheel weights on the calipers??? I love that thread...
