Couldn't take it anymore so it's gone.

Sold my 2011 vert back to my dealership on Thursday. The car was just getting to much of a heart break. Wasn't enjoying it any more , top issues again plus several things the dealership had done to it when they tried to fix the top.
I hope it works out for all of you for your verts. I want to thank everyone who has help me out on this forum. On to something else for now.

Best regards

They have over ten of them now a lot of 2012's. people are dropping like a hot potatoes. One reason I dropped mine was they just trashed it and the top's are really not good at all. Once the warranty is done I don't have the money to keep buying new tops.
Good luck I hope you can sell it.

Sorry to hear it, hopefully they at least gave you a good price.

Keep your eye out for the IROC-Z or 50th Anniversary

Thanks for chiming in. I would NEVER own a non-ragtop Camaro.

And my A/C works fine, sometimes with the top down, I still run it, with the seat warmers going to make my back say "wow".

Peace out.

Convertible question on 2013?

ok, I had enough of the top issues on my 2011 Camaro vert, so I got rid of it and bought the wife her new vehicle. Question is, on the 2013 verts did they finally fix all the rubbing and tearing that the tops were doing on the 2011? Does anyone know if the 2014 New Camaro vert will be a redesigned top mechanism?

Are there really more to come and how many time do I have to have the top ripped off of it before a permanent fix is in place

Not to sound too pessimistic,
I don't think more changes will be coming in time for us poor souls with the early build 2011's...I think the warranties will run out prior to this time.I have had my top replaced and GM Canada flatly refused to put any kind of extended warranty or coverage letter to extend the warranty to cover the top past the 3 year/36 standard warranty.My warranty will expire next year.I am planning on cycling the heck out of the top this year...If I have one more problem then the car will be gone.

intensifi,

My apologies, as I do not have specific information as to what enhancements are currently underway. I can only ensure you that there were adjustments made already to date and they continue.

I cant complain

I have an early 2011 vert,

I just asked the dealer about my top a month ago because it was showing some wear, (shiny spots)

he called the GM Rep, they just replaced the top no problem, I pick it up tonight,

they do it on a case by case basis, I cant complain , they have dealt with the two issues I had with the car except the front tires cupping on the outer edge of the tread.

after vowing never to own a chevy again , back in 1984 this is the first one I have bought since ,(thanks to dodge not bringing out a challenger convertible) but chevy is stepping up to the plate and I am really enjoying my convertible
