Law requires dealerships to disclose that type of damage. I mean they make a customer disclose that when you trade a vehicle in. You have a case where you could file suit shit i would if there going to be that grossly decieving.

I feel your pain. I too brought mine in for its first oil change after C fest. Of course it isn't my daily driver so I took it straight home and parked it in the garage until I washed it on the following Thursday for that weekends Camaro fun. Well what do I see my passenger side front wheel damaged. I immediately called the dealership. Of course they are our club's new sponsor. So that Saturday I drove it up there and showed them. It was when the tech drove up on the lift and came to close to the side lip and damaged the rim only. They are suppose to have one on order but that was like three weeks ago. Now I am worried about them screwing up the new rim, or not balancing it correctly. I don't understand why people get into the service business and not giving a crap. I am in the field service business for the oil and petrochemical industry. I always have to make sure I do thing right because I could kill someone if I don't put things back correctly. And these are CERTIFIED TRAINED TECHS. Well they forgot one thing, respecting property. I will definitely be standing there and watching them install the new wheel. Hopefully the paint matches the others. Hopefully they will take care of you and replace the wheel and tire.

Yes they are supposed to disclose damage, but they didn't. Oh trust me I wanted to sue them but after talking with my lawyer he said it wasn't worth it because there was only cosmetic damage. If there was Structural issues with the car then he would've pursued the law suit. I've now had so many problems with my 2012 Camaro I am going to do a lemon law on it.

Actually this is my second Camaro. The wrecked one was a 2010. I bought this one after they bought the wrecked one back.

Wow. That sucks. :( The damage is not the kind you would see from rubbing a curb so hopefully they replace the rim and tire. It is hard to trust when people do things like that.

Good luck on getting them to cover it. I hope they are a stand up dealership and make you whole.

What is the "law" or wording when they try and hide things from you when you buy a vehicle??

I took mine to goodyear to get the tire patched today and I was on them like a hawk. I made sure they knew the liftpoints and did a full inpsection of the rim and tire when they were done. I may have seemed overbearing but screw that this isnt my old beater.

I never met Ray Lewis nor i know who he is , but tomorrow you should keep your cool and explain to the service manager WTHH ( what the heck happen ) , be very polite and try to make you point across , i also know that's easier said than done , but the alternative will get you no where . Patience can go a long way .

UPDATE: I went into the dealership this morning. And spoke with the Serv Dept Mangr. About the damage he came over to the car saw and conformed that the damages didnt come from a curb. So he took some digital stills and mentioned he would review the surveillance footage and where and how it happened. I just got off the phone with him and he said after viewing the footage he saw where the damage occured so there for a new WHEEL and TIRE were ordered today. But with car being 2013 the wheel isnt in GM's inventory (verbatim) so he doesnt know exactly when it will come in. I hope this isnt a dick around tactic. Dont mean to be negative but dealerships do play that game. Being that winter is on our heels im kinda uneasy about it. But we'll see how it goes.

Actually it's good to be very cautious. I wouldn't believe an order was placed until I see the tire/wheel at the shop. THEN, I wouldn't believe that it was for my car until it was ON my car and I was driving home with it.

You could always call around to a few Chevy parts departments and inquire about 2013 ZL1 wheel availability to see if they are on the up-and-up.
