Question about scoop

Everyone keeps asking why my SS doesn't have the hood scoop (which isn't even in the hood it's in the bumper.) It got me wondering cuz I havn't seen an SS w/o the vent in the top of the bumper..
I have discovered since I bought the car that it appears to have been wrecked. The front bumper has alot of trash in the paint as well as the fender (which aslo has paint stripped off the bolts under the hood) The dealership never said anything about prior damage to the car.
What should I do? Is it normal for a SS to not have the vent? Do I need to confront the dealership about this? Call Detroit?

SS has the mail slot (vent).

Sounds like they put the V6 fascia on that SS

I like it w/o that stupid mail slot. But the fake vent does say SS to those that know. If you what the correct piece go back to the dealership and see what they will do.

I would tell the dealer to give some cash back if they did not disclose it. Can not hurt.

Now, put a ram air style hood and be done with it... Looks good.

It was a Demo from my understanding.. I test drove 6 that day and don't remember exacts about everything.. I'm bout to give the dealership an earfull.. First I have to get the car towed after 3 days of having it b/c the MT goes out. And I find out that the front bumper has been replaced by the v6 bumper.. They aren't going to like me after this.. And I know they are gonna hate me after I call detroit about it.

Another question.. are halos stock for SS? cuz I dont' think mine has halos (I can't go look cuz it got towed to the dealership last night)

Halos are not SS specific, it is a RS package. If your roof moldings are not painted you do not have an RS. - No halos

Halos are part of the RS package. Can be on the V8 or V6 or not.

Do you prefer KY or Vasoline?



What you are describing is HIGHLY irregular. And everyone in this crowd is going to agree that they tried to pull a fast one on you, and hide a very big story about this car.

Something doesn't seem right about this whole thing.

A new car can have some miles on it as long as it was never registered but with 15k on it, HIGHLY Unlikely....

Sorry but if it had 15K on it it wasn't sold as new. A "demo" car is the same as a used car. It probably was crashed at some point and the person liked the V6 front end better. Others have done the same. I don't think they will do anything for you. It never hurts to ask but I'm guessing the most you'll get is a little work to clean up the paint you referenced. Good luck.

JAG cannot help you with personal matters. Only military stuff. Maybe offer some advice but cant actually do anything

Dude no offense...but when purchasing a vehicle you should know exactly what is on it when you buy it.
