The HO (or High Output) would be the LS3 The other is L99

Show some of the differences between L99 and LS3

Glad to see someone rewarding people for buying a stick!

my goodness OP here got owned by that dealership. car has probably been wrecked and repaired with the wrong parts. i'd be throwing fits

BUT. but. OP, come on man, you should have known the difference between the SS and V6 models. anyone with some knowledge of the cars would look at that for 3 seconds and point out the missing slot. hell, i'd assume it was a v6 with SS badges if you didn't already post the engine in it

Clear cut case of a customer going to a dealership without any understanding of what he is buying. People, don't like this please!

did you mention the huge accident it had when you looked it up on KBB? you have it listed as "excellent" condition, it is far from it with that kind of record

I'll admit I wasn't actually planning to buy that day (because I didnt' know my lawyer had my credit fixed already) and I was shopping around. I had test driven the SRT-8 (mopar fan) and wasn't very happy with it.. It doesn't talk to you. It's too luxury. When I go around a corner I want to feel feedback.

I test drove the camaro and fell in love with it. I wouldn't consider it an impulse buy b/c I had been shopping and planning to buy a new vehicle for months. I just figured my credit was still messed up and that I was going to have to wait for tax returns to put a big down payment.. but when I found out I could get it with no downpayment and decent intrest rate for my age.. I started to talk numbers. (I would have shopped around more.. had any other dealerships had more than one SS on their lot.. The dealership here in town has 1 SS. and it's over 40k.. plus they wont' let me test drive b/c i'm under the age of 24)

Next time I'll tell em i need a couple hours to think about it and drive over the memphis and look around. Lesson learned.. and don't look like it's going to be too expensive a lesson.. Customer Service in Detroit is working hard to make this right. I will most likely have a new Camaro by the end of the week.

And yes I am documenting names of the people I speak to and what they tell me.

Whats the name of the dealership? My Father is an auditor for GM and if there have been similar issues it could be subject to an audit.

After looking at the dealer's inventory for new cars. The highest mileage on any new car they are selling is 29 miles. So I think something is wrong with this specific incedent. Hopefully Chevy can get to the bottom of it.

When I got my car is was new and had a little over 200 miles on it, but thats because the dealership I bought mine from hadn't had a 2011 VR 2SS/RS in stock for over a month so it was driven to me.

It would be more of a sleeper if it were debadged as well.

I would NOT be happy with partial GFX (even though I am not a GFX person to begin with). I would either want all or nothing, looks goofy with only the rockers.

Good Luck OP, I hope you are taken care of.

....AND Thank You for your service.

Carfax comes back clean.. I just paid $35 to find out that there was nothing ever reported on the car. Also GM shows the car has had work done (transmission work.. imagine that) that is not on the carfax report.

No police report, insurance not used... sounds like a dealer demo that had an accident and was repaired out of someone's pocket.

VERY SHADY!
