New Camaro owner but have an issue

So I bought a 2014 SS 2SS and the first couple of days sounded great. Then I got on it a little and now I hear a rattle when I accelerate. I took it to the dealership and they told me its a normal noise.

Normal that wasn't there at first? I googled the noise and everyone says something different. I'm not a mechanic but I'm going to take it to another dealership hoping for better results. For almost $50,000 I expect no problems.

Demand to take a spin with a service manager in two new Camaros on there lot that are equipped like yours.
If you hear the noise, it may be normal. If not, they are bs'ing so make them fix yours.

Everything is "normal" to them. They don't make money by doing no-cost work. They aren't your friends.

yeah, I tried that but none of them have manual ss's laying around. I know it doesn't sound normal though. The noise wasn't there the first few days I had it either. I had one of their techs ride with me and he said it sounded like drive train and was not a normal sound. Then when it came time to talk to them about fixing it, they said it was normal.

They then told me to leave the car with them and they would have a chevy engineer come test drive it. Corporate has no reference of any engineer going there to see it so they probably lied. I had corporate speak to another dealerships customer service person for me. Going to take it there for them to check out and hopefully they fix it.

I'm not mechanic, but that noise doesn't sound right.

Try posting in the regional forums. I'm sure a fellow owner would take a ride with you and see if they can pinpoint it for ya.

Yeah, I didn't think so. Somebody I work with said it could be clutch plates or throw out. Hoping its a simple fix so I can just be done with the headache. Otherwise, its a badass car.

Yes but you can also probably buy a house for $58k in Virginia. In New York, prices are high because theres more money floating around.

Nobody here can ascertain for certain if your car has a problem, given the vague description. However, these cars do have some drivetrain noise from time to time. The Tremec transmissions are not silent, and under certain conditions some "rattling" could be normal.

I have a 14 1SS LS3 and I had a noise in my transmission shifter area when I would accelerate too. After the 2nd time the dealer had my car for 3 days in a row I settled on GM paying for and installing a new ZL1 short throw shifter and believe it or not. the noise is not as bad now. My stock shifter had some metal on metal scratches (wish I took a pick) on the bottom.

Paying for a new ZL1 short throw shifter with installation from the dealer was GM's way of me agreeing to stop complaining lol. So whatever you do, keep complaining until they do something for you.

I went to the dealership for flashing CEL (misfire) and they told me that was "normal". They don't care about you or your car once they sell it and you drive off the lot! Some people try to defend them and say they do care but the fact is, they don't want to service your car in it's warranty period because free.

Are you referring to the drive-train 7 U-joints rattle because you aren't driving smoothly? Up to you sir. It takes a bit of practice but not impossible.

lol, maybe if your out in Appalachia. for most of the state put a 3 in front of that number. for the norther VA area put a 5 in front of it. and for the immediate DC suburbs like falls church, Tysons corner; put an 8 in front of it.

How long have you actually had the car, and how many miles on it?

Does it happen just by depressing the accelerator (if so what rpm & what gear(s) OR or while shifting?
