2013 SS rear end noise

I am posting this for anyone who may be running into the same problem. I bought my 2013 Camaro SS in August 2012 with about 8 miles on it. Since that day, I have had a very faint whining noise from the rear end. Until recently it got super loud. I took it into the dealership and I'm told it needs a whole new rear end kit (ring, pinion, bearings, etc). On top of all this I'm told there is no part availability and it will take 5 days just to get the parts and it will take 2 days to get the job done. I honestly and truly have not driven this car hard at all. We will see what happens but this issue has disappointed me with my car. 4,000 miles in 10-11 months shouldn't make a rear end go out.

Below is a link to my post with what sounds like the same problem (or very simular). I am glad to report that after 55K miles on the repair, no additional issues have risen. They did not replace all the parts in my diff, only the bearings.

Good luck,

Pluto,

I apologize greatly for what you're experiencing early since owning the vehicle. I certainly understand your frustration and would like to help monitor the process if possible. Feel free to message me regarding this matter so that I may be of assistance.

Kind regards,

I would love to use a different ratio, but that wouldn't fly as the dealership I go to says that my warranty will be voided in full even for a cold air intake or muffler replacement. They may burn the car with any higher end modifications. haha. Just wish I could have the CAI and exhaust on it.

Why do these dealers keep making these comments? CAI and exhaust will to affect your warranty except for those parts specifically. It's been posted here many times before. Headers will likely void it because you will need o rune the car after so i would steer clear of that until you are ready to go without a warranty.

Good luck!

I have no clue. I did ask two different dealers and they told me the same thing. So what you're saying is I have the green light to put an axle/cat back and CAI on?

You need to find another dealer-I have CAI and axle-back exhaust-my dealer installed my skip shift thingy before I took delivery of car.I asked them about the 1LE gears installed in my car,and computer program for said gears (will be installed and programed by them)--service manager said he would still honor power train warranty with 1LE gear install.

I have 1LE complete rear end in my car put in by dealer. It is all under factory warranty. Only thing we are waiting for is for the CALC to be loaded as soon as it is approved. So right now I drive 5 miles over speed limit in town and 8 on highway. Should have the CALC in July.

Pluto, can you please describe the whine you were hearing? particularly under what circumstances you would notice it the most? I ask because since attempting to use the frankly dangerous "launch control" our cars are equipped with I hear a noticeable whine from the rear end under some circumstances. In particular it seems to whine when I am coasting along (down a slight hill typically) but still have the throttle depressed very slightly (like 3-5% to hold a steady speed). This may be normal and perhaps I just didn't notice it previously (almost always leave the radio on), but if it matches your description I should definitely get it checked before the warranty expires. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

If you dont mind me asking, how much did that run? I really want that, but want to keep my warranty.

The whining noise I experience is at its loudest going 42 mph in 4th gear. The noise doesn't occur in first or second gear though. A little update on the service, I'm told ANOTHER 5 days to get parts and 2 days to fix it. So if that's the case, next Friday my car might finally be fixed. I'm told they're rebuilding the whole differential.

See I took my car in for an oil change and for the diff noise. The first time they put 13 miles on the car and I was told that the guy who "looked" at it wasn't qualified for the fix so the "transmission" guy had to look at it. They had my car from 8am-5pm. After a week, I call back to see if I can take my car back since they haven't called me. I take it in and from 8:30am-2pm/3 miles I'm told that Ill need to wait 5 days for parts and 2 days to get it fixed. I've been very patient, but I feel it's running thin.

Oh yeah NotYetLegend, I forgot to mention that it is in fact under about 3-5% throttle...if that. Either way I would take it in because any kind of whine isn't normal.

Well another update on my Camaro, STILL no call from the dealer it's been 2 weeks since I have taken it in so I'm forced to use another dealership 45 minutes away. Typical, I guess maybe in another 2 weeks my car can finally be fixed. In the meantime, I'll still be paying for a broken vehicle and listening to the horrible howling noise as I drive my $40,000 car everyday. Who knows what else is screwing up in the differential. Still waiting...

Here we are week #3 going on 4 and at another dealership...hopefully they can get my issue resolved. The other dealership said 5 days and they'll call me it's been well over a week and nothing, of course. I guess we will see what this other dealership can do. If this takes forever I'd rather just take the car and trade it in, honestly.

My dealer told me that the CAI intake will not void the warranty. Mine is a lease so I was extra cautious before I thought about doing upgrades. The service manager told me that as long as the upgrade does not cause damage to the engine that could be directly attributed to it, then there is no problem. Just keep the orginal airbox to put back in when you plan to sell or trade in the vehicle.

Thanks for the info Pluto and sorry to hear about the general hassle you're going through. Best of luck with the new dealership and I gotta ask; if you do trade her in what are you getting next?

If I do trade in there's no question I will just go get a ZL1. I bought this car for $21,620 out the door. I'm paying $300.00 a month on it. I was able to put $17,000 down from my previous trade with a 1.9% interest rate. It is a true 2SS/RS the window price was $40,200. If I need to add 150-200$ a month to my payment to be happy, so be it.

Another update on this situation, I called dealer #2 and they said that they will be replacing the differential as a unit, but it will NOT be finished until the end of next week. So supposedly by 7/19/2013 it will finally be finished and I can wash my hands with it. By that time it will have taken almost 5 weeks to get my car fixed between 2 dealers.

The funny thing is, dealership #1 has yet to call me back. I would call them first to tell them I've taken my business elsewhere, but I'm curious to see just how long it will take them to call back. They told me they would call me in 5 days. 5 days was up on 7/3/2013.

Update:

After the second dealership has had my car for 9 days I was told today that they haven't even looked at it yet. I've spent a month trying to get this damn thing fixed and no luck. I'm told they will look at it tomorrow and it could take as long as NEXT week to finish. This is the second dealership and nothing. So I guess it'll get fixed whenever it gets fixed. Still waiting on you Chevrolet...

Oh and that whole replacing the unit as a whole part? WAS A LIE They said they haven't even ordered parts yet. So now I have to wait until tomorrow to get parts ordered.

Dude I feel terrible for you, this is some sort of "perfect storm" of dealership incompetence. That ZL1 on the other hand sounds epic, haha

Yea has of right now I've been reaching out for ZL1 and 1LE prices. Just seems like every time I mention a 1LE package they kind of shrug their shoulders. Of course, their tails wag at the sound of a ZL1.
