Lack of oil because of the catch can? Did they say how? Any oil that the catch can gets would have been burnt up anyway (or deposited on the valves and turned into carbon deposits which is worse) in the engine and not returned to the oil system.

Man, you were more patient than most would be. Congrats on the new car. I'll keep my fingers crossed that this one is trouble free for as long as you own it.

This was on friday before Memorial day weekend.

Today I traded in my car to a different dealership and drove off with a 2013 2SS/RS everything except navigation. My "old" car was a 1LT RS. No more.

And the rest was history...
Greetings Ocx,

Sorry to hear about the prior experiences, but congrats on the 2SS! I know you're going to enjoy it. Let us know if you have any questions anytime.

All the best,

William R.
