Day 24. Waiting on new carpet.. so I am being told. Looks like this will be the fourth weekend without the car. Remember it took three days to replace the top and now in week four of dealing with the consequences of the top replacement.

Owning a new Camaro Vert for me is a lot like owning a used car... unreliable and always in the shop.

AC Compressor Overheat - 1day
Grind in Reverse - 1day
Squeaking Brakes - 2 days (not resolved)
Dealer Installed Wheels not Balanced Properly -2 days
Window Regulator Replaced -2 day
Brake Master Cylinder Caps Leaks
Top TSB First One - 1 day
Top TSB ( Wind Noise) -1 day
Top TSB Second One (work JUST pencil whipped never performed) -1 day
Top TSB Third One (Top Replace) - 3 days
New Top install leaks water - four weeks and counting

I'm sure I am missing a few things...

Angry Where would you store a leaking topped Camaro?

Well my dealership thinks outside is a good idea... did I mention we have had flood producing thunderstorms ALL month. Photos to follow.

I wonder what standing water inside of a car in 90+ degree summer heat for three weeks does... surely 100 percent humidity inside the car for this length of time can not be good.

Now I'm really holding my breath. Dropped my car off last night, on Monday morning it is going to the Custom Hot Rod Shop for them to replace my top. I had a lot of the same rub spots and wrinkle rub spots that you had in your video. Thinking I need to run by the dealer this weekend and take pictures of my top (didn't think to do that) so I will have something to compare it to when it comes back. I have already had my water mangement bag replaced when they replaced my head liner. Just keeping my fingers crossed and saying a little prayer. I really love my car.

GM case number now. I am so torn as to what I want to do with this dream car that has been transformed into a nightmare of ownership. The culpability of the dealership and GM are yet to be determined as is the impact to my joy of Camaro ownership.

I have bought two of these cars... LT upgrade to SS. I have spent thousands with the sponsors of this very site and have learned a lot about these cars and the mods. I have made new friends and feel a part of a community. I have yet to dog anybody or spewed bitterness.

As we all know these are much more than just cars and the way we and the cars are treated matters... much more so than to JUST the bottom line. I will exercise all my legal rights in this case and I appeal to GM and to my dealership to win me over so I can stay behind the bowtie. Will take more than money.

So the top repair on this car has been a total fail...

Going to start a new thread to share my next chapter...

:(

I hear you man, I've been down that river for the last 8 months as well. It sucks. After all is said and done, I gave up and went the lemon route. Sad to say. My coupe however is running perfect. Go figure.

Man I hate to hear, but I totally understand your position. It's a very hard decision I am sure. These cars are so beautiful with the top down. I commend your attitude through this ordeal. Let us know how it goes and I for one am pulling for you.
