Sounds like one of those "silent recalls". The ones where they don't notify you to take your car in but you ask they'll fix it. They usually don't send out recall notices unless it's safety related.

Well the bulletin was only released on Wednesday to dealers officially.

I already had to tighten up the nuts on my rear spoiler as well. I will need to get the engine harness position inspected and the HVAC reprogramed the next time mine is in for service.

This should be a recall in my opinion. GM needs to step up to the plate here.. Few people will even know about this as dealers never call. I myself haven't even received a call to get these issues fixed. Oh, and my VIN range is past those numbers and I had the loose bolt problem as well. Something is definitely wrong with the way GM is figuring out which VIN's are affected.

Timing is everything. Just today I opened my truck and heard a rattle. Didn't think anything of it until I closed it, then heard it again. Then I thought, you know what, I wonder if that is one of those loose nut problems with the spoiler. Sure enough, one came off and is somewhere in the trunklid. I was thinking about I how I was going to get it out short of taking the whole damn lid off. Hope this fix works.

What's your VIN production number? As of the end of July, 32k Camaros have been produced since March.
