Camaro Pick Sat.

Morning,

Going to pick up SS Sat and was wondering if there are any anything special defects or problem areas I should be looking for when I pick up my toy.

Thanks

Just do a walk around and look at everything. Look for dents in fenders and doors, parts in interior not line up right, generally just do a quick walk around. Make sure it is all fixed before you sign the dotted line. Some dealers are more apt to fix the problems before you sign than after.

mileage

1. check the mileage
2. make sure no warning lights remain on after the car is running, like the ABS light.
3. check all the rims for scrapes/see if the tires were scrubbed against any curbs
4. look to see if the front brembo brakes still come from the GM factory with vibration dampening weights attached
5. check for loose rear spoiler
6. check both rocker panels under the doors for dents. look at lower perimeter of entire vehicle front to back.
7. verify all rear tail-light lenses/bezels are identical color/tint. if car is an RS, check that bezels are for the RS
8. check if rear backup sensors are installed / verify they are working so u can use them when you park
9. test drive

Make sure they filled the tank with 91-93 octane!
