Maybe I have a Lemon

I have taken My 2010 Camaro LS to the dealership over 5 times for small fixes. I am really getting tired of this and do not know what to do, I love this car so much.
LIST OF WARRANTY ISSUES
Steering wheel turned gray where hands would go (got it replaced)
Fan making ticking noise( it got replaced)
Automatic shifter vibrated way to much(it got replaced)
driver side seat cover had to get replaced
LCD screen on radio ran in the light (got it replaced)
Muffler is making a vibration sound at high rpm they say it is normal
In sport mode at high rpm it sounds like gears are grinding(next trip to dealership)
Onstar said my engine misfired so I had to get my ECM Flashed

Is all of this a little much because I am getting tired of taking my baby to get fixed which seems like every week. I love this car and will not be getting rid of it just want to know if this normal or what is going on.

Other than a few re-flashes for the HVAC & ECU my car has been 100% quality
and the April consumer reports confirm this.
Don't do much high RPM"s, only a few bursts of fun here and there.
I would hope you just have small stuff happening right now.

I would say that this is well beyond "normal tolerance" for failure. Have you discussed your issues with the manager of the dealership? Many times they are not aware of single vehicle failures like this until you knock on their office door.

I don't think that sounds normal at all. All of those parts should be holding up a lot better than that on a GM car.

I would be sure to hang on to all of your documentation and work orders. They will come in handy in what I'm guessing will be your future lemon case.

I have talked to service manager several times and he is just giving me the run around. I love this and do not want to get rid of it. I have no idea what to do here, the dealership that I go to is starting to not like me. I guess I am more anal about my car but I can not understand why all these problems are happening to this car. I went ahead and bought a extended warranty for all of these problems I am having. I love the camaro and always will but how did I end up with all these problems. If there is some one I can call on this on the next level I will but I have no idea who to call and what to do from there.

Down boy. I went through the same problems as you with my original camaro. In the end the issues got resolved, for both of us.

EXACTLY! I got nothing from them (Customer Service(?)) - or my dealer! What a joke! Still riding around with the same issues the car rolled off the lot with - but hey - they got their money and that's the most important thing - right?
