2010 Camaro engine problems

I'am new to this forum, i'am just wanting some feedback from other 2010 Camaro's owners, has anyone had any engine problems on the LS3, oil leaking, or other issues, my 1ss (5,585 mi) had oil leaking around the timing cover, the dealer did take of it, but today 2000 mi later i noticed it was a 1/2 quart low on oil, the diy said " low oil pressure" "shut down engine" so i had it towed back to the dealer, and they can't look at it untill next Monday, anyone else out there has had this problem? :(

Low oil pressure could be the oil pump. There's a TSB for it. Not sure about the low oil though.

I had a leaky oil cooler adaptor gasket which the dealership fixed. There is a TSB for it as well as a TSB for a faulty oil pump check valve. I read other threads about the oil pump problem so it's a known problem.

there is also a TSB on the Rear Engine Cover oil leak due to porosity issue.
