All ZL1's beware!!!

I have to have my exhaust replaced cause the left side of mine is falling apart! Check your exhaust pipes with a flash light and see if the hushmat is coming apart. Thank god for warrenty

I opened my garage and noticed wiring/metal strands sticking out of one of the pipes. I tugged on it thinking maybe something just happened to get trapped but the tug came from inside the Pipe and the wiring/strands wouldn't come out of the exhaust. Took it to the dealer and they checked it out and said the exhaust was coming apart from the inside. I can take pics tomorrow

Should be a concern to gm having a performance car they tested so much having a major part fail after only 7000 miles. Hoping a higher up gm authority sees this thread. This might be a recall ladies and gentlemen.

Wow, that sucks to hear. Glad they are taking care of it under warranty. I'll be sure to keep an eye on mine, but with almost 9,000 miles so far I haven't noticed any issues.

Recalls are usually only due to safety. Doubt a falling a part exhaust will fall under a safety item

You're right! It's not a safety issue but it's covered under the bumper to bumper warranty.

It would be helpfull to provide some pictures or other understandable mechanical verbage that tells the tale. Hushmat, falling apart, exhaust replacement....can you please fill in the gaps between all that. Pardon my ignorance, but WTF are you talking about...

While I'm the first to speak up about how GM has the worst customer service after the sale I have seen in any company period, and how they will purposely declare they aren't to blame to save 25 cents no matter how many customers they make mad, but I cant see them having to put out a recall or TSB when this apparently is the only case of failure....

stuff goes wrong, things aren't all 100%....if this was a chronic problem on ZL1's I'd be an advocate, but this is the first I've seen or heard of this issue.

Bad luck for you but let them replace it and see if it comes back.

I already stated that the pictures would be taken tomorrow. The hush mat ( at least that is what the tech said is like a wiring kind of mesh thing inside the mufflers of the exhaust. You will see what i'm describing with pictures. As for being the First one lets hope it isn't a issue with these beautiful cars and hopefully others wont be affected by the same issue.

i'm not saying they should, but if other ZL1's are affected soon by the same issue i'm saying it is a possible outcome.

I've been drinking so maybe tomorrow I will think differently, but seriously, Recall, because you have a small warranty issue?!

This thread screams Drama Queen

Don't have to be a Dickk. I mean all i was pointing out was if other owners have the same issue we might have a problem.

I have put my car through the paces and my mufflers look fine. I am sure it is an isolated incident.
