Warranty almost up

So, my 2010 Camaro's 3rd birthday will be this April 23rd, and thus the end of the bumper to bumper warranty. I've got about 46,000km on it, and I really haven't had any trouble. I think I had the clutch replaced in its first year because it wouldn't pop up all the way when cold.

Anyway, are there any bulletins or things I should get checked "just in case" before the warranty is up?

Thanks in advance!

I'd take it for a semi annual inspection at the dealership...normally about $150, I'm sure they be happy to bill GM for anything they can get under warranty

If your brakes squeal and yo got the ones without weighted pads there's a tsb on them and they will replace under warranty especially if you call gm directly if dealer won't do it for you and at 400 $ for a front brake pad change and rotor turned I'd do it while you can

They're also known for 2 nd gear grind at high rpm shifts this is because bad blocker rings (syncros)this is what gm mechanic told me and they replaced mine free while they're in there get your clutch checked ,cleaned , or replaced if need be since its all apart already this issue drove me crazy on the drag strip , now it works great!

My brakes have squealed since I've got the car. I've had it in at least 2 or 3 times to different dealerships. They all tell me it's normal for performance brakes. I'll post a pic of them.

Hrm, I think I've had that happen once or twice on aggresive shifting, but I'm not 100% positive if it was 2nd gear...

Best way to get rid of the brake squeal is to take it out a do some aggressive stops, our brakes get glazed. Normally driving like you stole it every once in a while helps. If its a good dealership they are quite happy to do as much warranty work as possible. There's lots of tsb's for out cars, you can normally find them all on Edmonds.com see if you think any apply to you and mention them when you bring them in for that semi annual. If you need a good service department I really recommend Southgate, ask for Tyler in the service department and tell him I sent you, he'll take good care of you.

Thanks melt. I went through the list on Edmonds.com, and there are a couple things that may apply to me.

I hear 5 or 6 ticks in a row coming from the rear passenger side of the car some times, especially when cold, about 5 minutes in to the drive. I'm curious if it could be PI-0137A chatter from rear of vehicle.

Also every blue moon, the service stabilitrac will come on, but goes off after a few minutes or next startup.

As for the dealership, I live in Calgary, but bought the car in Lacombe (cuz they found it for me). Service dept in Lacombe was horrible, so I haven't been back. Actually got a call back from GM cause I rated them so poorly.

I think I've brought it to CMP, but wasnt happy with them either. I've brought it to shagannapi the last couple of times and was pretty happy there.

Anyway, thanks for all the info, and once it warms up again, I'll try and book it in for that semi-annual.

Does the 5yr/100,000 cover oil leaks?

The 5 year is powertrain...which is pretty much anything that touches oil. So unless damage caused the leak you ate probably covered

Following this thread as my daily driver 2011 2LT bumper to bumper will expire early Aug. this year. Today, only at 8,157 Km after 2-1/2 years (don't drive much).
Before August will take my 2011 2LT A6 to dealership for two minor inssues, one weatherstrip, one creak on passenger side.
Want to go on the record (document) I asked dealership to inspect specifics before bumper to bumper expires.
One minor issue: Rubber weather strip on left side drivers rocker panel. Rubber weather strip rippled, not smooth in lower body door rocker panel channel. Will need to be replaced, not simply pushed back in rocker panel channel (to pop out again a year from now).
One minor issue: This winter developed a slight squeak sound coming from either right glove box or right door panel. Want it fixed. Traded a 1996 Sebring LXI coupe for the Camaro, 100,000 miles on the LXI, not one interior squeak. Currently have a summer only car, 1998 Riviera, 70,000 miles, not one interior squeak. Now have an interior squeak in my 2011 Camaro with less than 8,200 Km. Not exceptible.
One issue: I was first in North America to report a low gear hesitation shift on the A6 Camaro transmission to GM (after others reported on this site). Two years ago GM replaced the TCM (transmission control monitor) when my 2011 had about 2,000 km. Still do not understand why I feel a moment of hesitiaton between low gear auto shifts when other cars I have owned, including my current 1998 Rivera, have no noticable hesitation between gear shifts with auto transmissions.

So my inspection went well. They say I need new tires :( Any recommendations?

Also, they couldn't reproduce the radio problem. I wanted them to update my radio to the latest firmware, but they didn't. Is there a way I can this done regardless of them being able to reproduce a problem with it???

I went to General Gmax, high performance all seasons, they handle a lot better in the cool mornings and evenings than the Pirellis. Oh and they cost a bit less.
