I hope they can do something for you on a ZL1 but going on past experience I do not think you will be a Camaro owner much longer.

I am keeping a very open mind and will leave plenty of room for movement. I have no interest in leaving the Camaro family but GM needs to step up to the plate in some way and show they want me as a customer.

Like I said I had a very positive unrelated issue solved today, hopefully my good fortunes continue.

So things seem to be moving along. I just got back from the dealer again and they did fix a couple of my issues. Unfortunately the seat issue was not one of them but at this point I am going to just move it up a bit a be done with it. Hopefully in the future they come up with a permanent fix.

GM over the past few days have been really helpful, I'm guessing they know they really dropped the ball on Monday. So while the buy back option is still available to me, it looks like I will be passing. I love this car too much to give it up!

I am still waiting on some info from GM but once I get that (should be today or tomorrow) I'll be able to put this all behind me. YAY!

Nice, good to hear you're sticking with your car. Hopefully you have no more problems and you get to enjoy your ride.

If buyback will get you back what you purchased for the car then I would go that route. You won't be out any money and have the option to purchase anything you want. It sounds like the mechanics that you've been taking it to aren't doing the job right (and how many will actually spend the time to get warranty work done correctly?).

To me option #1 would be risky. They may not ever fix it or they may fix it for a few weeks. Either way, if you have them work on it they might try to screw you if you go for option #2 saying that they already spent money repairing it so you have to cover that cost (or whatever BS they throw at you). Honestly I'm surprised you have these options from GM, I've read/heard that getting a car lemoned is really really time consuming and difficult.

I love the camaro, but I love cars in general. If I had owned 2 camaros that were consistently trouble I would be looking at a challenger or mustang as well after GM bought back the camaro.

Either way, good luck to you sir.

Edit: just noticed I'm late to the thread. Good luck with the repairs!

Who knows, but I just cannot let that ruin my car experience. Here is their exact answer.
