You are right, not a dangerous car, but gm made a car with 580 hp easily accessable at these prices. GM should package a driving lesson to all those who choose to buy these machines. Being an owner of a zl1, I do admire all its safety features and they do work well.

Driving lessons are not needed with this car, common sense however is required and recommended!

Sometimes the obvious surpasses the conscious mind, and the little things need to be pointed out and reinforced. The hits that 727 has shown are about the most catostrophic I have seen for any Camaro's ever posted online. Cocky self assuredness on the street over time will lead one to this point.

...they say a picture speaks a thousand words.....and that statement is an over exemplification of those pics.....that photo takes us to another level. And some say there is some form of self assurance because of nannies in the car, or in innate driver ability to handle the ride, or commin sense for all those behind the wheel? Make ones own judgement of this carnage and ask yourself if you are really that good...and you won't end up at the same point.

A whole lot of roll over accidents in these pages. I think I'll spend me some quality time behind the wheel learning the limits of the car so my ZL1 doesn't end up being pictured in this thread..

...suggestion, we should have a data base here keeping track of this carnage beyond this post, which is really a good one. This info is a stark reminder of what could befall any one of us. I cringe at the thought of a door scratch or ding. Can you imagine this happening?

I'm curious to know what a flooded z will go for at auction. I'd like to try and buy it before it ever gets to auction. I'll have to try and contact the insurance company.

I agree.

Let's not forget CAM ZL1's 2012. He last posted here in Jan. He claimed the accident was a failure of the EPS.




This was his last post here.

GM pulled the crash data, passed it onto claims, and finally GM Legal. In the end, they found insufficient evidence to definitively confirm an EPAS failure; however, they highly contributed towards my purchase of the previously ordered replacement 2013, most likely due to the extensive list of issues the 2012 had already displayed.

I'm thankful for those of you who took your ZL1's in and prevented future problems from occurring. I'm glad some individuals benefitted from my venting, and that I didn't just come across as paranoid or annoying.

Again, I apologize for not being more involved in the forum. The conclusion of 2012 was not easy. The number of personal tragedies and a hectic work schedule tends to shift your priorities.

I did get about a months use out of the 2013 before having to put it into storage for the winter and thankfully, it has lived up to the high standard I had for the 2012 that never came to fruition.

I will always be concerned with any thought of a knock, drip, and creak, and if anything ever shows its' face with the 2013, this forum will be the first place I come. Thank you all for your feedback, concern, and continued support.

lol I guess some of this explains what we just got with our insurance bill.

"2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

"Rating code has been changed based on updated information regarding the average cost of repair and occurrence of theft for this vehicle.
