agree

I agree with you. GM jumped through hoops for us. I am just curious what caused this sound. Also, the service manager stated that there WAS some damage. I would like to avoid this happening...

OK, NOW final results!

I thought many of you would like to know what happened with the noise when turning slowly. Here are the details...the service people changed the rear diff fluid, test drove it, let it sit, test...

We were almost poor suckers like that. Here is what happened...I was in San Leandro, CA taking care of my ailing mother at time ZL1 came into production. I placed an order at F.H. Dailey Chevrolet....

Chevy did the impossible!

Hey, everyone, get this. We had some warranty issues with our ZL1, some minor, one serious (the rear end noise when turning). Also, there was the concern of someone at the dealership driving it...

Generally I agree with you. Dealers will not even recognize you. Howver, the one we actually bought from, DID recognize us and the salesman and many other people came out to see how we were doing. ...

How about $20k over msrp?

We ordered a ZL1 the day they became available. We were charged $20k over the msrp by Dally Chevrolet in San Leandro, CA. We ordered it, but it was taking so long to build, we were told we were to...

Paint job

Thank you for your advice. We asked the painter who did the flame job on the car...and he agrees with you. He says 'blending' very rarely looks right, especially at a dealer painter. We decided...

Look at an earlier post

If you look at an earlier post in this thread, you will see a video showing how to clean the material. We did not know of this while we had it. Perhaps it would have made a difference. The dash is...

Oh, it is useful...not falling off or anything, but it looks horrible, especially the blotches of uneven color. As for cleaning, I would be very interested in knowing. We never did anything to it...

OH, we noticed it all right. However, it didn't start getting REALLY bad until the last 500 miles or so. Probably wasn't very noticible to the judges until the final show of the year in late Sept. ...

Thank you!

Thank you so much. Interesting thing about those flames...the painter said they would kind of fade away at night time, and they do. Very hard to see in the dark. I love the subtleness of the job. ...
