Huh? And that relates to this forum how?


Bumbleb - hope all turns out well and too bad you got grief on your original post from some posters on this forum - just when you needed support and tried to give us a heads up you get smacked.
From the rest of us, thanks. And keep us up to date.

I think this might have been true in the past, but I don't believe it is anymore. I would not hesitate in buying a 2010 Camaro just because it's a first model year car.

My 2005 Mustang is a first model year car, and guess what? The car has not been back to the dealer since the day I took delivery. Not a single problem, even minor. The car is four years old now with 40K miles, and still perfect.

There were a few TSBs (Technical Service Bulletins) since the 2005 was built, but no recalls. And it's not just that I'm lucky, because when I posted about how good the car has been over in the Mustang forum, there were a lot of replies from owners with the same experience.

I expect the Camaro to be a great car and as reliable as anything else on the road, and I wouldn't accept anything less.

Agreed on all accounts. All manufacturers have problems with every car, every year, and it happens every day. His Mustang was flawless but thats not to say that no other 05 Mustang ever broke down like BumbleB did.

It's about 10 PM eastern time. I know the owner and car are on the west coast, and their probably picking up the car as we speak. Just wanted to say

Sorry to hear bout your Camaro having issues already,but for some reason i kinda knew it was an issue with the battery.Remember all the camaro's sitting outside the plant with the hoods raised,ready to be shipped?That kinda scene is highly unusaul for a brand new built car.That Delco battery in your Camaro is probably manufactured by somebody else besides GM.I've bought OEM replacement batterys in the past that turned out to be junk,and they were brand new?I 'm sure once the dealer replaces the battery,you'll be up and running(these things do happen)...Don't forget to post some pics of your new Camaro

YES it had to be because the hoods were up! BTW...the battery is in the trunk. LOL
