Insider Info, Could be bad for SS

So i was told by a person, who has connections to the Oshawa Plant, i am not disclosing any names first because i dont know it, second because i would not want anyone to get anyone fired and third because i don't know the severity of the problem. I was told that the SS may be delayed because they are having problems with L99 auto. Only the auto, and only for the SS. I have no other info, i wish i did, but im sure that there might be other members who can calborate on this. You don't have to believe me, but i am just putting it out there. If you've ordered the LS or LT or LT2, with auto, you have anything to worry about, as for the SS owners, you probably wont have to worry either but i dont know all the info.

I got a 2SS w/manual so doesn't sound like a problem for me but hate to see a delay on any of the Camaros!

Hopefully it's not too bad and no delay will happen but if it does and you have an auto SS on order...hang in there!

I thought they weren't offering an L99 with a manual? So do you mean all L99s? I dont see why that would be a problem its been used in other vehicles I believe...

I dont see why this thread will cause problems that are big enoughfor this thread to be closed, and yes you only get automatic with the L99, LS3 for the manual, sorry if i confused anyone

Yeah i dont know why it would cause any problems either, could be just a small bug for the L99s

Even if it were true, better a delay than putting out a poor quality car, like the GTR and their launch control feature!

I understand the 6.1 Hemi Challenger is having trouble with the manual transmission/clutch and that is why they only have a few out!!

Dodge is still shipping 6.1 Hemi autos, they tried to sell me one on the showroom floor for MSRP of $44589!!!!

Quality & Dodge?

The term "quality" and Dodge can not be used in the same sentence! As of the release of the Caravan they forgot how to design a quality automatic transmission. BTW - my local Dodge dealer has two Challengers on the lot and tell me they can't find a buyer for either. However, still a nice looking car!

Well, after you tried to screw your customers by charging $5-20k over MSRP for the early Challengers, what do you expect? I just hope that the honest dealers realize what caused the original issue and punish the idiot dealers. Chevy dealers who have similar plans for the Camaro need to rethink their strategy.

It's not completely unbelievable that the AFM in the L99 could be having issues, that is a helluva technology....but that being said I would have to hear it from Scott to really break a sweat about it.

I doubt it will be delayed. Tap shifting trannies have been around a long time it's something that can be debuged. The Turbo Hydro's have been around a loong time so it's not like they are dealing with something unknown.

I agree. If it is delayed for this reason, I imagine it won't be a long delay and such a delay would be better than a faulty product out on the market. I wouldn't worry too much either way.

If I see one more "insider" info from someone's brother's step-sister-inlaw's twice removed cousin was a janitor at the grocery store when Bob Lutz walked in and overheard him talking to the guy in produce about the Camaro

K, first of all i said COULD BE BAD, COULD BE DELAYED!, Second i said to choose to believe it or not, did i say it was set in stone, i put it up there to see if anyone else had heard something similar. I dont need anyone flaming on me for posting something that i thought other members might want to know. I never said it was fully credible, re-read my post before jumping to any conclusions and flaming me for it, next time dont choose to read it if you dont like insider info, this site normally doesnt have this problem of people flaming others like camaroz28.com has, thats why i joined this site and not that one. So please dont flame me, and why would anyone close to me bullshit, really?

And second, i knew about the ambient lighting way before alot of people on this forum from an insider source.

oh and the camaro coming back, when they were in the talks
