I completely agree, GM held these cars for weeks because of some QC issue, as many eyes as have been over this car and as long as they've had them to look over, how in the world did the car get through with an issue like that? The good news is it should be a really easy fix so it's nothing to be too concerned about, it does sort of make you wonder what these guys have been doing for the past couple weeks.

Battery Cable was a recall issue back when the 2010's first came out. Good thing they caught this one early and I'm quite sure they will be checking others.

Thanks for posting so the ones shipped can be aware to look... some dealers might not be as thorough as yours...

Not sure on the ZL1 but on the SS the battery cable winds around the top of the oil pan and is a nightmare to remove and/or re-install.

Yup they will probably need to strip everything off the front of the motor pulleys +...

I pulled my own motor in my SS a couple times and the big unbendable, unflexible battery cable was always a royal pain in the a**!

That sucks, but at least they caught it before you got it.
It's still crappy. Odds seem slim that this only happened on yours though.
The positive is a bad deal. Hope these all get caught before any sparks fly!!!
