I'm kind of glad I put my order in later and mine isn't built yet. Gives GM a little time to discover and correct problems like this.

That was my thought too. Hopefully this thread keeps someone from damaging their own car. I feel it would be a simple fix, with either an internal tubing support or some sort of laser cut sheetmetal bracing to reinforce it inside. Even the '69 Camaro has an upper grille brace to keep the plastic from cracking, so this could be considered a retro-mod

I'm still going to receive my 2010 Camaro, I just won't do high speed runs until I fix the nose.

Well then don't log on!
If you think having the front bumper facia of your new car starting to crack in the first week of driving at high speeds is whining, well good for you....don't log on.
Especially if you've been waiting for months, more power to ya...but don't log on.
But for some of us, it IS a concern, a reason to give notice to be careful and another potential problem that may just delay it even more...but for you, don't log on.

And a question for you. When did you order your 2010 Camaro?

You are right - there are zero problems right now and this post is just from some Mustang owner who is looking to slander the car. We should all just get some plastic filler and a spray bomb and shut the hell up.

It would be okay to complain about GM not making the Z/28 though huh?

How do you know which speed it failed at? It could have cracked at 125 mph. Just because they went up to 155, that doesn't mean that 155 caused it. Telling Camaro owners to do the speed limit is a lot like telling a room full of straight men to kiss boys.

Just like the song..."can't drive 155.."..dananannnana
Looks like mods will be vents or blackouts.

If the facia can crack after one high speed run, how will it hold up over time at normal highway speeds? What will happen when you drive into a stong head wind? What will happen after one year? Three? Five?

This is a legitimate issue, not whining.

I for one am glad that this problem has been noted. I am sure GM is as well because if this did not get caught early in the process it could have cost them a fortune. If this cracking did occur due to high wind speeds then GM will have to correct this problem. This might delay our cars longer but at least this problem will be corrected when we receive our cars.
