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.

Update:

I called this morning (7/16/2013) at 11:00 a.m. and was told they STILL didn't have it in a bay. I called again at around 4:00 p.m. and was on hold for 18 minutes and 23 seconds (according to iPhone) and had to hang up cause I was at work. I got a call back around 10 minutes later and was told that they're finally tearing into it (10 days later) and assured me a call back with the verdict. Of course, no call back. I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow, but I know they're just going to say they're not done tearing it down.

For my car to have sat at a dealership for 10 days without it being driven, looked at, or have parts ordered for it, is something I cannot get over. I am a level 3 tech and am no longer in the business, but when I was there was never a such thing of being behind on 10 days of work. I've tried to contact a General Manager and a Service Manager and nothing. I either get a voicemail or a "he is not available at the moment".

If it is true and they actually tore my car down I will update again with the culprit. I was told 10 days ago the whole unit was replaced. I was also told it was already on order, but that was a lie. So, who knows? Until tomorrow my fellow Camaro minions. I hope I can drive my Camaro soon it almost feels like I don't have a car anymore.

Update:

So they finally tore into the car late yesterday. I called the dealer this morning and I was told they tore the differential down and everything "looked ok". So the tech consulted the GM Tech Hotline. They advised that he replace the ring gear, bearings, and of course, the fluids. I'm told the parts were not on back order and they should be here Friday. I'm also told no later than Monday/Tuesday for pick up. We will see what happens, I guess. The saga continues my friends....

What a joke. GM should have culled these asshats when they downsized.
Makes my blood boil when I read this.

Call GM customer service and get reimbursed for your down time. My Silverado was in the shop for 3 weeks with a bad diff when new, same as you. I got $900 from GM for my trouble.

They really stunk up the supply chain during the restructure, basically they keep no stock of anything. And it's you the customer that gets shafted. We keep hitting them for money when this happens and maybe they will stock some parts, and fire the upper management tard who thought this was a good way to save money.
