For those of you with a Camaro SS on hold, be sure to get updates on your car in our “Bayed and QC Hold Tracking Thread
” for daily status.
It's been officially confirmed to us by an official at GM that there is currently a temporary hold on the shipment of Camaro SS models with manual transmissions. The hold affects only V8 models with manual transmissions currently in production
, and does not affect V8 automatics nor any V6 models. The following release comes direct from a GM representative to us:
Some update/clarification -- no hold on production, just on shipments
Here's our statement on the matter:
Our engineering team is reviewing data related to the performance of the manual transmission on the Camaro SS, and have temporarily stopped shipment of this model to the dealers.
This only impacts Camaro SS models with manual transmission in production. Camaro SS with automatic transmission, and Camaro LS and LT models are not affected and will continue to be shipped to dealers.
Since this is an "in production" review, we are NOT requesting vehicles be returned for any service or dealer deliveries stopped as a result of this action.
