Wow, sorry to hear of your issues, BlueRay. I'd stay on my dealer like a Rotty on a burglar.

So its back at the dealer, took the tech for the ride and he couldnt hear the clicking sound I hear plain as day. Gave the service writer a look like I was nuts. Service manager took it for a ride, said he couldnt hear it either.

But I have had 3 other people ride with me and they hear it fine. Over the radio even. Perhaps I'm just tuned into it so I know what to listen for. My drive starts in the subdivision without alot of noise from other vehicles.

I just want the noise to go away. I really hope they can figure it out. If they say they cant find it, I'm putting the service manager in the backseat and taking him for a ride. He will have to hear it then.

And then there is the weird top behavior. If I dont get things fixed I will try a different dealer with a new set of eyes and ears. Perhaps I'll make the trip to Rodgers chevrolet since they receive alot of accolades here. I feel bad I didnt purchase from there, but they just couldnt give me the amount I needed for my trade in.

Well, dealer thought they found the noise. Showed me all kinds of pictures from my exhaust where they said it was rubbing. They had to do some stuff to get it to fit right... like cutting my corsa exhaust. I'm not sure they did it, I think it may have been lip service.

Noise still there, just as loud as can be. While I was waiting to leave, the techs were making some off the cuff comments about " I cant believe he sold that to him" and "He has big balls to try that". At first I thought they were referring to some guy sitting in a corvette out front. Now I'm starting to think these comments were for me and they didnt do anything to the car.

I really have a disdain for my car now. I dont want to drive it because the sound is annoying. It feels abused in some way... having been in the shop now 5 times or more with 3500 miles on the clock. And this attitude from the techs, even if it wasnt directed at me is still pretty sad for whomever it was directed at.

I spent 45000 dollars on a Chevy car, and it has more problems than any other car I have bought (around 12 of them new), and then Chevy service kicks me while I'm down, making me feel like its my fault I bought the POS. I can promise you this will be the last GM product I ever buy. I'm looking forward to the next person to pull out in front of me thinking I will yield because I dont want to scratch my car. They will have the entire car shoved up their A$$. And if it didnt fit the first time, I'll be glad to reverse and try again.

Well, a day after my temper tantrum, I'm trying to figure out my best path forward that doesnt include crashing the car, or taking a sledge hammer to the right rear quarter of the car. (In the hopes that after the repair, the noise is gone.)

I think I will try to take it to a different dealer with a fresh set of ears. Rodgers Chevrolet is not too far from me, and everyone seems to think they are pretty good.

I've been holding out for the redesigned 2014 Suburban coming this Fall.
Maybe I'm wasting my time?

There's always the chance the 6th Gen Camaro will be perfect.

Hello BlueRay-J,

I am sorry that the noise is still occurring with your vehicle. I understand how this can be annoying to you. I also apologize for the comments you heard from the technicians, and that the talk was inappropriate. You should not feel this way about your vehicle; you should love it! Please keep us updated after your next dealership visit. If there are concerns that arise, please private message us so we can provide assistance.

Regards,

Laura M. (assisting Reggie)

Thanks. I'm out of town for work but will try to set something up for the week after memorial day.

If I have issues I will pm. Rodgers Chevy is about an hour away so hopefully they can work it while I wait.

Tonneau Cover

Has anyone lost their Tonneau Cover while driving their 2010-2013 Camaro Convertible? I have and I am trying to get it covered as a warranty item... I had installed as instructed, as always and about the 20th time putting it on It apparently flew off at some point while I was on the highway. Really dont feel like paying for something that was not my fault. Please let me know if you too have lost one of these covers. Thanks

Good luck with that. No way you can prove that you DIDN'T put it on incorrectly.

Update:

Took it to Rodgers and they did great work. Its about 80% gone, but I'm not certain its even possible for them to fix it completely.

What they found was a missing pinch weld on in the sheet metal in the passenger rear which was causing it to rub. How significant is this to the car's structure? The dealer used some sort of seam sealer to try and fix... not sure exactly. But will this cause more problems in the future? Why should I have to settle for a car that is missing something significant like this? Let me know what you think... is a missing pinch weld a minor issue and common? I want a different car, honestly because I'm concerned its going to just be a rattle trap for the life of it.... Maybe someone can educate me on true significance of this issue.

Rodgers is indeed an outstanding dealership and worth the ride. I met the tech who was riding around in the trunk to try and find the source of the rattle. He even had carpet burns on his elbows.

He crammed in there and was a little on the shorter size. But not a small person by any means.

Anyway I have at least 4 new rattles. All of the seat belt retractors and a new one deep in the dash, the windows and headrest. I've owned over 20 cars and this one I dislike the most. It just hasn't been an enjoyable experience.
