2010 Chevy Camaro SS manual shipment hold officially confirmed by GM
Posted by: admin In: Main ()
It’s been officially confirmed to Camaro5 by a GM official that there is currently a temporary hold on the shipment of Camaro SS models with manual transmissions. The hold affects only V8 models with manual transmissions currently in production, and does not affect V8 automatics nor any V6 models. The following release comes direct from a GM representative to us:
Here’s our statement on the matter:
Our engineering team is reviewing data related to the performance of the manual transmission on the Camaro SS, and have temporarily stopped shipment of this model to the dealers.
This only impacts Camaro SS models with manual transmission in production. Camaro SS with automatic transmission, and Camaro LS and LT models are not affected and will continue to be shipped to dealers.
Since this is an “in production” review, we are NOT requesting vehicles be returned for any service or dealer deliveries stopped as a result of this action.
UPDATE as of 2:30pm EST:
We’ve received clarification from GM that the hold is only on shipment, and NOT on production of SS manual cars.
To all members who ordered SS manuals and would like updates on whether your car has been built and has shipped or is being held, please utilize our tracking thread for updates.
Stay tuned, as we will bring you updates as they come in to us.
