Thumbs up Oshawa Recognized as a Top Three Quality Plant by J.D. Power

The plant in Oshawa (where the Camaro is produced) was recently recognized as one of the top three at the 2013 J.D. Power Plant Quality Awards. The designation recognizes the Oshawa Plant for having the second-fewest number of defects or malfunctions of all assembly plants in North America.

The video highlights the hard work and commitment to excellence exhibited by plant members and management as they design and build the Camaro alongside the Buick Regal, the Chevrolet Camaro, The Chevrolet Impala and the Cadillac XTS.

All i can say is my 2011 had flaws in the paint from day one. I noticed it during my first wash. I took photos and after hearing the song dont go changing by billy joel decided I love this car just the way you are.
I'm glad to hear the Oshawa Plant got it together.

So you kept the car that you just paid for with the flaws in the paint? Seems like there's a flaw in your methods

Nice work Oshawa! I honestly feel that GM and Ford have really stepped their game up when it comes to building quality vehicles.

These cars come down from Oshawa on rail cars just days after being completed. My car was taken very well care of and even it had rail dust in a few parts of the paint. Nothing that wasnt an easy fix After a few months of owning a car if you want nice paint I recommend clay baring a car and removing trash collected from its transport.


my car was on a railcar being transported through snow and etc just 7 days after it was painted. Not to mention it sat in a rail car for 4 days here in Tx waiting for snow to thaw so it sat there with crap blowing all over it.

no biggie just part of owning a NEW car during harsh times of delivery.
