New Recall Notice: Anyone else get this?

My dealer just called me and told me there's a NEW recall notice for 2010 Camaros. Has anyone else got this call?

WTF !?!?!?

Probably to check the starter solenoid connector. It's getting knocked off when they do the main batt cable TSB.

See what you get for playing with your DIC... and telling everyone on a public forum. DOH!

Soon the black Suburbans will show up.

So you dealer called you and told you about a recall notice and you come here and tell us about your phone conversation but you don't share the rest of the information??? Are you saying your dealer called you just to tell you there is a recall notice but didn't elaborate on it? Why bother to tell you if he doesn't know yet? I wish people who post would bother to type a couple more sentences to eliminate the guessing work for readers.

Hi -

I didn't share any more information because there is none to share. That's why I'm posting here!

I called back and the service department was closed (they close at noon here on Friday's), and the girl could not tell me what the notice was for. All she could do was take my appointment to return the car for service.

3....2....1..... AAARRRRGGHHHHH!!!!!!!

Or maybe your dealer just wants to show you how to do a proper burn out! Dealer must have read your other thread on it.

Happened to my buddies car after driving it for 3 days...had to tow it to the dealer to find the problem and that was it...the connector had come loose.

If anyone else finds that their car does not start...check the connector.

maybe we should ease up on him... tag teaming him in two threads may be a bit harsh... you think?

So, your dealer called you to tell you theres a recall and not on what.

That would be like me calling you and saying there has been an accident.

Hum what do you mean boss? That is what they are supposed to do.

It's a given there will be defects. All new cars have them. You should see some of the Mazda and Toyota horror stories about the company blowing them off on tranny and leaf springs busting etc etc. As an example.

But part of the service is to work with you best as possible. It's better than waiting for a letter. He wants to look at your car again too.

I agree, but I'd rather my dealer wait til they at least know what the recall is for. That would be my first question. How does the dealer even know there is. I'm assuming he heard it somewhere and it had to orriginate somewhere. So there has to be a reason for it. (the recall)

Uhhhh what if I want to eat at 9.

Can I drive my car? Do I need to refrain from something? Should I turn something off? Can I wash it?

You gotta admit. It's kind of weird to get the info of a recall and not know what it is for.
