Arrow Ultimate Issues Inspection Checklist for delivery at dealership


LIST HAS BEEN REMOVED.
Please refer generally to this Issues forum (http://www.camaro5.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=70) for troubleshooting/diagnosing any issues you may have.

It's unfortunate that this list has attracted the negative spin and attention that it did from other websites looking for a sensationalized story on the Camaro, and for those who still think that the Camaro has had widespread quality control issue, please take some time to read around on this forum and you will quickly realize that there has instead been widespread praise and satisfaction expressed by the vast majority of our members regarding the quality and experience of their cars.

Mine had a minor scratch on the passenger side windshield. It looked like they turned on the wipers without the blades installed. This is probably a isolated incident.

I am still trouble shooting my problem, it was believed to have a bad fuel sensor, they replaced that and still didn't fix the problem. They now believe it is a programming problem as they checked all the wiring. So it is going back to the shop next monday.

(Problem) The gas gauge is all over the place, sometimes full, sometimes empty, you can drive down the road and it says helf full then it reads 3/4 full. It isn't effecting the drive or anything just an annoyance and remembering to keep the tank full.

Also, saw a post yesterday about paint around the headlights. See http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...770#post657770

Please add this - I had about 100km (60 miles) on when the bleed screw on the clutch slave cylinder came loose (probably not tight when it was done at the factory) and blew out all the clutch cylinder oil (clutch stays on the floor) - it went back to the dealer on a flat bed truck the first night I had it. This has been the only issue in the first 1000 miles..

My problem:
1. nevermind, it helps to look at it in the light to see that is the OFF button.
2. Seems like the paint is darker on the back side of the car than it is from the doors forward. This might just be how victory red is supposed to look so who knows.

Problem of a car at the dealership: The AC drained into the car instead of beneath it, causing a one month delay while they replaced the carpet and got the back ordered part in.

Anybody know if there is a TSB/fix for the misaligned body & door panels yet (like what VIN #1 had that became a big fiasco of a discussion on here)?

I have that problem too, if it is one. I was starting to think that was just the way it was designed (?).

1. Alignment of doors to dash interior the door interior seems to sag below the dash interior
2. Door sill decals peeling up

Thanks for starting this thread. Very helpful.

Paint issue

When I picked mine up, there was a small paint swirl in the passenger door. They had to send it out to be repainted. It looks good now though.

My Silverado had/has that issue. Gage went to 3/4 when I just filled it at the gas station. It then moves around when stopped. Dealer replaced fuel level sensor twice indicating it shorted out. I don't know why, but I feel like it will happen again. My 2000 Camaro also has the same problem but ran out of warranty when it started so I started using the trip/odometer just in case its wrong. If I throw in a Fuel Injector cleaner into the tank it starts to read correct for about a month and will start again. Weird.

Can we get a master list going of all the things people found wrong with the car that QA missed? Let's keep the list down to just the facts. One of the more common issues found is loose bolts that hold back some type of fluid (ex: oil). I'll try and go through the posts and edit this post adding everyone's item making a master list people can print out to take with them and have checked out before they take the ride home. Should help everyone and I hope everyone can chime in here. Especially those that have their ride already and experience problems. Also, pls correct me if I have any mistakes in the list. Thanks.

The list:
__________________________________________________ _________________
001. Loose Bolts that hold fluid back (ex: on oil pan)
002. Trunk Locking mechanism (issues with opening w/o adding down pressure to top of trunk first and/or emergency release appears to be loose keeping the trunk from locking properly) (also check the trunk monkey, free food for first month).
003. Loose plastic panelling around the 4-gagues cluster, launch control, and cigarette power plug as well as Left and Right A-Pillars Trim Loose.
004. Loose Spoiler.
005. Wiper transmission cable overheating from engine causing a shortcircuit.
006. Matching Headlight Halos strength. (one defective being dimmer then the other).
007. Mismatched paint on parts of the vehicle. As well as paint runs or clear coat runs.
008. Loose Rocker Panel "Chevrolet" causing it to peel off.
009. Minor Problem With Window Indexing.
010. Ambient Lighting on doors defective.
011. Bad radiator (leaks)
012. Hood release/latch issues (won't unhook to open the hood)
013. Gap at base of ONStar Antenna
014.
Thank you for the list

I would add all those having the shaft cracking when dropping the clutch.. There iis a thicker camshaft being installed for them..We need a part number of the newer more thick shaft since we all should have it replaced and installed ASAP..
