Try a different shop. I saw your other post. You can either A continue to pay the same shop thousands to do a horrible job at so called fixing your issue or you can pay a few hundered to a different shop and hope it is done right.

Yeah i also would not sell my camaro because of this. Im sure its very frustrating especially because its not the first time but if they dont know how to fix it right then why take it again to them. They are probably just going to keep doing the same type of bad work. I would just suck it up and take it to another shop. Do ur reaserch before u take it to any other shop. Make sure they specialize on those types of cars so u can avoid all these issues again. The previous shop is obviously not doing a good install on the clutch or whatever else is that they are replacing. Take it to someone that knows the car and then enjoy the car once again. Again i know its frustrating and its not cheap but it has came down to the point that now u've even though of selling the car!!! thats a No, No... So no, take it to an expert so they can solve that problem. Mine hasnt had any problems. Wish u the best. Get it fixed and enjoy ur car.

Don't take this the wrong way, but do you abuse the car? Clutch drops are notorious for causing the symptoms you're describing.

SAAB och GM har ju varit samma generalagent för GM, vet dock inte om det är samma som tar in Camaro eller om det är en annan.

Är din en Europabil eller är den import härifrån? Skicka PM till mig med en beskrivning på dina problem, jag har haft 3 st Camaro's av senaste Gen och byggt otaliga så jag kanske har lite ideer.


Sorry for the Swedish guys, just answering his question about the Swedish GM customer service
