2011 2SS windshield(none available?!)

When I purchased my car the windshield had a small crack in it and I was assured it would promptly be replaced so I went ahead with the deal. Here we are 3 weeks later and 2 trips to the dealers glass place and still no new windshield. I fully expect to get it replaced but I am getting tired of waiting. Has anyone heard of a shortage of windshields for the 2011? The last trip to the glass place resulted in the dealer getting the wrong one, something about the black area in the center being the wrong size. Anyone heard anything like this?

Did you get a we owe in writing? If so, I would tell the dealer to get me a new windshield ASAP or get me a new identical vehicle. It not only can be unsafe but you can also be ticketed for it. Tell them to replace it.

I waited 3 months to get my new 2011 2SS windshield. My dealer claims they actually had to pull one out of the factory at Oshawa after it was escalated. My windshield also had a tiny crack/scratch upon delivery. Don't settle for anything but the OEM windshield for the 2SS or 2LT since it has special glass/glaze for the HUD.

Definitely will not be having anything but the OEM windshield! I bought it new and that's what's going on it.

I call the salesman every other day.

Do not use safelite..........Safelite has not and will not ever be a OEM glass. no car company has ever used safelite glass in a production car. safelite is a aftermarket company that uses there own manufactured glass. The OEM glass for the camaros is pilkington. there are other makers of windshields, but Pilkington is the orginal glass for these cars. You were haveing problems getting the windshield for your car im assuming because it has the HUD. The windshield for the 2010-2011 camaro is available from Pilkington with and without remote start. the HUD is not available other than from the dealer as of yet.

OP, same thing happened to me. Except the shop broke mine while trying to fix something else that was wrong before I took delivery, had the car just 5 days. Bought the car Sept 1st 2010. After a week and a half of waiting for an answer they finally told me a new windshield wouldn't be available from the factory til' the middle of November. They ended up getting me a brand new car and ended up with the RS pkg for free. What a mess and the regional GM rep was useless she called once and left a message and after that I couldnt get in touch with her at all. The dealership ended up deciding to get me a replacement car.

Make sure you see paperwork stating "2011 2LT/2SS" part. They may install a regular 2011 windshield (not for HUD), or a 2010 windshield just to get you off their backs.
