Bad paint on black 2ss
 
My car arrived on the 16 of june # 1504 I went and drove it and sighned all the paperwork. I left it there so they could install the gfx the next day. The car was still dirty from shipping when I test drove it so I couldnt tell any thing was wrong. Well the dealer called me and said there was defects in the paint and If was there car they wouldnt want it. It looks like little indentions in the paint and it is rusting already in those spots and is on most sections of the car. The GM rep is going to inspect it some times this week and tell me my options. I really want the low number car but I do not want a car that has been repainted. If they can reorder me one and put me at the top of the list where I will receive it in about a month I think I will wait. Any Ideas on what my options are and what I should do?

The low VIN would be nice to keep, but I'm not sure it would be worth it to me. Inside, I would always know it had been painted on. If it was one small part of the car, like the front bumper, maybe. Just my 2cents. Good luck.

it's so sad this is a reocurring theme. GM had a prime opportunity to get this right and they failed again. You can't say it's because it's a new car. I've owned 5 Toyotas and none of them had ANY issues, zero!!!! Make them get you a new car ASAP!!!! And bitch the whole time.

I have had problems with a new model Toyota, so it is not unique to GM. :(

mine (#1691) has the same little spots... its looks like a bunch of drops of acid (20 or 30) sat on the paint (hood, roof and trunk) for a while. I tried buffing on them for a long while but they will not come out.

I bet this happened while the car was sitting in QC in Pontiac, MI.

DarricSS 06-21-2009 11:08 AM

I would keep the Low Vin# car and have the body shop repaint it and throw in some painted rally stripes...

stikSS 06-21-2009 11:15 AM

That sux...... mine is coming this week, and i'm not accepting it if there is the first thing wrong with it. I hate seeing this over and over.

tom692010 06-21-2009 11:32 AM

15 times back to the shop

I bought a 08 saturn vue and I sh** you not I had it back within the first year 15x. Sometimes for the same issue,sometimes to correct the problem they caused by trying to repair it. Anyway I bet everyones got a story
one way or another about a satanic vehicle. Gone now-traded it for the Camaro!!!:happyanim:

I would tell them that if the car is going to be repainted at their expense that you want to pick a custom paint shop to do it right. If not then you need a discounted camaro price for the hassle. I ordered blkonblk also. Good luck and keep us posted just in case it happens to someone else.:chevy::yikes:

Wikedwil 06-21-2009 12:42 PM

GM or any manufacturer will not authorize a "outside shop" to do repairs. I have been in the biz for 30 years. Got out bcause of BS like this and insurance companies.
Good luck !!! They do have to fix it right.

Baughman 06-21-2009 12:48 PM

Yikes!!! I also ordered black on black. So def. keep us up to date if you don't mind. As far as getting a new car or repainting. I would have to say it depends on how bad and soon you "have" to have the car. Good luck with your decisions.

My dealer has repaired my car (Black 2SS) and I keep finding items. Look for my thread "Shes Damaged and review. I suggest you re-order and wait. Contrary to popular belief, they do have ways of expediting a replacement.

It will never be the same as a factory paint job, and you are paying way too much for this car.

Just mt 2 cents

Vash 06-21-2009 01:06 PM

There is no way it's rusting unless someone scraped up the metal. It's galvanized.

We would need pictures.

earn88hardt 06-21-2009 01:12 PM

sounds like raill dust to me you can't get tha stuff out of the paint

Hawks 06-21-2009 01:12 PM

I would keep the low vin and just have them paint it and through in some incentives. Someone else down the road will end up with your low Vin repainted like nothing was wrong.

I had a Ford Probe back in the 90's and it had a water leak. I took it in under warranty (2x) and the dealership could not find it and ended up replacing the carpet twice. They ended up calling in a company that specializes in finding water leaks. He found and fixed the leak that was the result of seam sealer not being applied in a particular area. Ford authorized the repair.

Keep the car and have it repainted. I can always replace the paint, but never the low vin number. Besides, if you get it repainted, it will be in your hands alot faster then waiting for another order. Alos think that your order will be a vin in the range of #15000 +. Stick with the low vin.

GatorBlue371 06-21-2009 01:51 PM

Not worth the low VIN, get the new car.

Camaro509 06-21-2009 01:59 PM

Man, some of you guys think it is the end of the world with the paint. It's just paint! Have them have it repainted and enjoy it. Hell, I'd have them do a custom color and graphics for your hassle.

If you were to have had this car 10 years, you'd probably have it painted anyway, no reduction in value and like others have mentioned already, this car has a low VIN that can't be replaced.

To be perfectly honest, I'd be all over this like pepperoni on pizza getting a custom paint job on their dime ;)

Back in '06 I bought a new Savana van. The day it was delivered to the dealer someone bounced a rock off the hood. So not only chipped it they also dented it. When I picked it up they told me they fixed it up right away. If they didn't tell me I would never have known. If it's done right it's just as good as factory.

My 2c

My local GM Dealer is also having a hard time with the Black paints on their Camaro.
They see scratches, bumps etc...
One customer bought a Black SS a week ago and it is not leaving the shop for another week or so...

72Zmaggie98Z 06-21-2009 02:40 PM

I would keep the low vin it that is important to you. If you get involved in a frnder bender accident what are you going to do? Get a whole new car? You get it repaired and repainted, I don't see the difference. I would not hold my breath on getting any custom paint job or anything additional. Good luck!

IROCanSS 06-21-2009 02:47 PM

Here is a good one... not a Camaro but...

I bought a brand new 2007 black Corvette in March 2007. Took delivery on a rainy night b/c was too excited to wait till the next day and have them detail it. I took it home, put it in the garage and washed it myself only to find the ENTIRE car covered in overspray. Not a little bit, a ton of it. All body panels, windows, lights, everywhere. I called the dealer the next day. No one could figure out how it got there. They looked at it and offered me a paint protector... WHAT? I said no thanks, I want what is on there off, not more crap piled on top of it. When you rubbed your hand on it, it felt like sand paper. They offered me to take it to a professional of my choice to have it removed so i took it to a shop I heard was "preofessional" and expressed my concerns about scratches, swirls and burnt corners from the buffer. They said they would clay bar it then buff and wax it. I got the "We just clayed and buffed a new Z06 in black so you have nothing to worry about"... blah blah blah.

I am still fighting with the swirls and they didn't scratch it too bad and they only burnt off a little bit of paint. All in all it looks really good when cleaned up, I spent 8 hours on it this weekend but it is not as it should be IMO. If I knew then what I knew now, I would have returned it and got a new one. It is not a low VIN.

I am done with black... for good.

As for the OP and my change, return it. Will a low VIN really mean anything? Youre 1500 cars in, not 3.
