165 miles and my car is in the shop - fixed

It started throwing all kinds or lights on the dash on Sunday,( keep in mind I picked it up Friday) brake, engine and the display threw a steering and traction errors. I took it in Monday and they found a loose connector on the ABS unit. I drove it about 5 miles and it started again. Back I went and left it.

GM said to replace the electronic brake module so they did. They drove it about 3 miles and said it was fine.

I picked it up today and put 6 miles on it and it started all over again so back I went. The service manager had already been involved with GM on it and he know's I'm pissed. I told him after the next fix to drive it at least 7 miles and gave him the route. I also gave him the spare set of keys because the car was fine on my 15 miles road test and the only thing that has changed was the key. They decided to take the spare key from me. I must have had that don't f*ing argue with me look on my face!

Ok, so I doubt it's the key but I told them I didn't think it was the brake module either.

Sigh. I wait 4 weeks for the car due to the damn recall and now this. I just wasn't meant to have the car yet I guess.

Lemon Law varies state-to-state.

It's all on the same work order, but yes after 3 you can lemon law it.

I do lose power steering when I get the message. Both the dealer and GM are confused.....

Hey Software Guy...I'm curious as to whether your Camaro is automatic tranny L99 or manual tranny LS3?

I'm going to give them until Wednesday before I feel the need to escalate it through GM. The dealer is doing everything they can but it's beyond them. I'm trying to be really patient with them. I had a Saab years ago that would just randomly tell me I had no transmission while I was driving. Ultimately GM had to buy the sucker back. It had about 20 problems they couldn't fix that kept coming back.

The car is an Manual.

I'm trying to get them to give me a Vette for a loaner!

As cars get more complicated, even the builders have issues troubleshooting and resolving issues. I would be unhappy. With each passing year, I miss the old days more! I am happy that I kept my '72 Corvette for the last 41 years. If it breaks, I can fix it!

This, if your state even has a lemon law.
I even had a Colorado Dealer argue it with me because the Pontiac I had at the time was purchased in Texas and had Kansas tags. They tried to feed me all kinds of crap about how lemon laws only apply to where you bought thecar, another trip it was where the car was registered. Final trip, it was kiss my ass we're so sorry Sir, we replaced the transmission. I had contacted GM corporate about the issue that time.
I'm Military, so yeah, I move around a lot.

They called and said B is ready (again). They updated the body control module software (I'm assuming this connects with the key somehow). The dealer put about 15 miles on it with no issues and I have put about 20 on. So far so good!
