See my posts for all the problems I had. I dumped mine after 6+ weeks at the dealer this past summer. I was all set to go lemon law. Thankfully my dealer took it on trade and gave me over bb for it.

I keep noticing a vibration and change in exhaust sound at low throttle at different speeds. Seems like it's bogging down. I have the oil leaks too; got to get those fixed. I'm also having a thumping noise when you go over a bump, sounds like something loose... We will see what the GM dealer says... NOT looking forward to this trip!

Some of your problems would be fixed with a louder exhaust.

Seriously though, I have the oil leak issue too, its 1 drop every week. installed my headers and was going to replace the oile cooler gasket but I put the header in first, doh...now I can't remove the oil cooler bolt without removing the header..so I just retorqued everything and tighened the two bolts on either side of the oil cooler....9ft-lbs is nothing but hand tight on those two bolts, the gasket is fine the torque is just too loose I think.

Oil pan, yeah I'm not having them pull the pan for 1 drop a week. The engine is sealed from the factory in a clean shop. I'm not taking it to some crappy chevy dealer and have some 18 year old kid take my 40k sportscar a apart only to get dirt and crap from the shop in the engine. No thanks.....

some of your gripes are legitimate, but if you look at any car that closely you will find problems. Nothing is perfect and the C5 camaro is about as perfect as a camaro has ever been.

I drove mine hard less than half the time... which allowed me to notice some defects.

Funny thing is the VIBRATION and SOUND PITCH is the AFM, active Fuel Management, kicking in. Guess GM screwed this up too. You're not supposed to feel the change! Oooops I do! FIXED this with a quick AFM delete program! All better!

Definitely have seen more problems with the V8s in my time on this forum. 18K miles and a year and a half after taking delivery, the only problems I have had are the loose spoiler nuts and a persistent squeak in the passenger seat when a lightweight passenger is in it (<130 lbs).

The dealer can't replicate the squeak, so I deal with it for now. I'll have them try again next time I'm in for an oil change.

Neither of these problems should've happened, but they aren't mechanical or major and they don't make me think I have a poorly built car. I still get a kick out of walking toward it every time, knowing I'm fortunate enough to own such a cool car.

I think they started mine on a Friday afternoon and finished it on a Monday morning.

Let's see....I've had my car for 1 1/2 years and 8000 miles. My first problem was intermittant pass side window indexing and sometimes it would come halfway down by itself. After 2 times at the dealership they replaced the motor and control module. Seems to be ok now.

Next was notchy 3rd gear (M6) which then became notchy 2nd gear also and difficult shifting at higher revs. It was like hitting a brick wall trying to shift into 2nd at times. Had it in 3 times over the past year all 3 times "no trouble found" or "could not duplicate"! I wrote an e-mail to GM and now they are going to replace my trans next week!

I've had 2 oil leaks. First one was the oil cooler adaptor gasket which was replaced. The 2nd oil leak was the pan gasket which was replaced. So far no more oil leaks!

Seems like a lot of problems for a brand new car! I must say though all problems have been fixed or are in the process of repair. GM is taking care of all this stuff under warranty so hopefully I'll have a solid car for many years of enjoyment! Even through all this I still love this car and I think GM is trying to help me out!

I have had a couple hiccups here and there. Still have noisy lifters on startup.

#8 on your list- does that sound kinda like hot water moving thru cold pipes in the house? I get a weird gurgling type noise when I accelerate...

Yep. Take it to the dealer. This is one thing that they can actually fix. There is a TSB out for it.

Was kinda hesitant to take it in for this, figured they'd just snicker give me the stinkeye.

Takin it in this week!

Cool see all my posts threads

it's becoming a pain in the ass. i'm just starting this thread to open this topic for discussion. wondering if anyone has had such a variety of things that needed to be repaired on their cars.

#1 - delivery of my Camaro was delayed by a whole month because of the battery cable recall.

#2 - the day i took delivery, my driver's side pillar molding kept popping off and had to be replaced.

#3 - black plastic/rubber exterior window molding around the small triangle window on the driver's side was peeling up on its own. they glued it back down.


see all my posts threads. all of them. 1
#4 - loose spoiler. had two nuts rolling around in my trunk lid. took 3 different visits to have this issue corrected.

#5 - paint chipping/abrasion under the loose spoiler. had it all touched up on my last visit to the dealer, but looks like complete SH*T now... so i'll have to go back again.

#6 - radio display screen would go blank, or freeze until i restarted my car. couldn't access any of my menus of skip songs or change the audio source. the dealer fixed it.

#7 - reprogrammed HVAC and inspected the engine harness as per the recall.

#8 - my heater core gurgled when i drove my car. they fixed it.

#9 - went into the dealer in December complaining about noisy steering and vibration... they did nothing - and i for the life of me could not find the power steering reservoir at the time. but 7 months later, i go in again with the same complaint and they tell me that my power steering fluid level was at the bare minimum, so they topped it off and it's been quiet and smooth since. is power steering fluid leven NOT on their 27 point checklist? did they not look at it the first time. they said that there was no leak found. so where did it all go? if it has been low all this time, why didn't they see it before?

#10 - installed axle-back SLP LM II myself, and when i removed the stock mufflers, they were full of water.

#11 - the radio display would not keep the proper date. it would always be off by a few days, every couple months.

#12 - noticed oily drippage under my L99 after parking it on a previously spotless slab of concrete for a week. the dealer found not one, but TWO oil leaks. one leak was at the oil cooler, the second was around the oil pan.

#13 - analog speedometer does not work (intermittently). but apparently when it was at the dealership for more than a week (while they were going through my list of issues), it worked fine. when i picked it up, halfway home i noticed that it wasn't working, so i turned around and went back to the dealership. of course, it was after service hours by now, so i had to drive with the sales manager to PROVE that the speedometer doesn't work properly. now i just have to go back and get this fixed when i feel like taking it down.

#14 - noise from the rear end while pulling into and backing out or parking spaces. they replaced the differential fluid... so far so good.

#15 - used to hear some pretty loud tapping/ticking from the front end at start-up... but this has gone away since the oil leak issue was resolved.

#16 - the whole mp3 playback from USB stick is a pain in the ass. i'm tired of having to re-do all of my options and re-select the music that i was listening to before the last time i got out of my car. but it is my understanding that there is no current fix for this. then the dealer tries to feed me the line "It's operating as it was programmed to operate" - well yeah, it's a SH*TTY programming job if you ask me. they should have referred to the mp3 playback from CD operation from all the other GM vehicles with 6 disc in dash CD changers. those work perfectly fine, they remember what song you were on, they continue playing the rest of that folder, and then move onto the next folder once the last song has been played... AND there was a single push-button navigation between folders. this USB interface was a HUGE selling point to me, and i can't even tell you how disappointed i am in the way it operates. i dreamed about being able to plug in a flash drive loaded with music, long before it existed in cars.............. and after my last visit to the dealer when they did some "calibrations", my "Random" feature does not work at all. Everything plays in alphabetical order whether "Random" is on, or off.

has all of this happened to you?

see all my posts and threads.

If that doesn't work, then they are talking about replacing the antenna...and since that is in the rear window...ugh. I really hope it is only the cable. Fingers crossed.
I ate some crow today at the dealer:

So thought I would post the cure for my problem. It took the better part of a year and one deployment but it looks like I initiated the problem. I installed my sub amp on the trunk side of the rear seat back and there is enough EMF bleed to interfere with the FM. Seat up, poor reception. Seat down, good reception. Looks like Diamond amps may not be FCC compliant? Hope anyone else with this problem may save themselves a lot of trouble, a new coax antenna cable, FM module, and rear glass replacement. The silver lining: the dealer is not charging me for the "warranty" work. Whew.
