5th Gen Camaro: New 2011 Camaro paint issue
As some of you know, I recently purchased a new 2011 Rally Yellow Camaro 1SS here in the San Francisco, California area.
Well, I was getting really excited to own this car when I discovered a paint issue on this car.
Apparently, many owners of the 2010 and 2011 Camaros with 'factory rear spoilers' have began to notice and report 'paint chips' created on the trunk of the car, where the spoiler meets the trunk.
All this information is being reported in the Chevrolet Camaro Forums
It seems that these spoilers were not installed properly (too tight) and it's making contact with the trunk, when it shouldn't. When this happens, it causes the paint to crack and chip/peel off.
Many have brought up this issue and some dealers are very helpful and are trying to take care of it. Of course, you also have those dealers that don't want to help their customers because 'they have never heard of it' and because there is no TSB out on this issue.
Well, I am going to take it in to my dealer tomorrow, Saturday, and hope that they are helpful. (Note: They weren't very helpful when I used to take my 2008 Saturn Outlook XR for warranty repairs).
Christina (GM customer service), I hope you read this thread and help us. I can provide you with more information if needed. In fact, I have already sent you an email. You can PM me or send me an email.
