So the District GM rep just called me. He claims they have been trying ALL day to get GM to give me a new motor but the engineers won't do it because the car is "Heavily Modified" according to the dealership.

I have a CAI intake, a painted Throttle body and cat-back exhaust lol

The "Engineers responsible for sending out those motors said they will fix it now and if it breaks again, they will replace the motor"

LMAO

However those parts did not create the failure remind him, and remind him that you may persue this further without arbitration because he just arbitrated on behalf of GM for you and your lawyer will be the next call.

Well there goes your headers. You tune that car after the repair and the engine blows I can guarantee GM will blame the tune and not warranty it.

Yep. I just talked to the wife. I'm gonna put the stock wheels, spoiler, skirts, hood, intake etc etc back on and sell the car. I honestly don't care at this point. I'll look at Mustangs and possibly a leftover '13 SS or just buy a new Wrangler 4 door and walk away from 2 door cars.

The GM rep just called me back and said he is going to try like hell to get me some new pistons as well as the valves they ordered.

Yeah, I think you'd have more problems down the road with a rebuilt engine. I'd demand a new engine, or tell them since they ****ed up the car they can keep it.

I did. I asked the GM rep to look into the dealer or GM buying the car back. I'll leave it there and I'm calling around for an attorney tomorrow.

They won't buy it back If it's repairable. Also not sure an attorney will be much help since they are willing to repair it, but it may scare them.

Either way, best if luck!

It is why my ss has never been and will never be wrenched on by a stealership. I did not even let them give me the free oil change. Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Load that car up drop it off at lethal racing do the 416 kit and cam. When you get it back you will be a happy man. The money you would loose in the trade would pay half the bill. Getting mine done soon cant wate

Many years ago I had a piston go bad in a Pontiac Ventura and lock the engine up and car was still under warrenty. Dealership said they would have to order parts to basically replace everything in the engine. I told them I wanted a new engine. They said they couldn't do that and it would take a few weeks to get all the parts. I knew I couldn't sue and get any where against a auto makers lawyers. But they don't like there name tarnished. So just for a try I got hold of the state attorney generals office here in Kansas and explained it all to them. Three days later I got a call from the dealership that there was a brand new crate moter from GM sitting at the dealership with heads on it, carberator and all including oil in it and spark plugs. They told me they would have it in the car and running in one day. And it was. Drove that car for years without any engine problems.

When my mom took her '10 LT1 V6 Camaro for it's second oil change at the local dealership, they didn't put enough oil back in the car. They were short almost two liters.

I'm never letting a dealership do anything on any of my vehicles.

That sucks a mechanic did the same thing to my friend's Dodge stealth and he never got his car back, they claimed it was already like that even though he drove it there with only a leaky water pump so on the bright side you have GM to complain to and you will probably get your problem solved.

Usually in a case like this you just buy new valves and have the machine shop set them up and they run just like they did before. I know that doesn't make you feel all warm and fuzzy though. Make sure when you leave it has new oil in it.

This is just upsetting the crap out of me. If I had the money to just install an aftermarket cam, tune etc etc I would do it and be done with all of this crap.

Is there a corporate email or number I can call or is it all funneled through GM "Customer Service" and my "District Rep"?

Hope they drain the oil properly, some of that antifreez will seep past the ring gaps, thats rough workmanship, could at least drained block plug before removing heads.
