Think your good enough to answer this?
Well first off I'd like to say hello to everyone on here, as this is my very first post =)
Second this is regarding my 1999 Camaro Coupe. You see, this car is beyond reparable, or at least several GM dealerships seem to think so - for they see no problems with the car. HA! It is a nightmare, which is really sad. I really enjoy the car, aside from the deadly malfunctions it has.
So i'd like to list some of the problems just incase anyone has encountered these before, knows anything about it, etc...
1st. - i have over 50 service invoices regarding a rubbing/moaning/grinding from the rear right end when making right turns/ accelerating
dealer solution: replaced rear disc brake pad. several other unnecessary repairs to the brakes and trans axle were performed.
overall, no solution. problem continues. Records indicate that as of December 2000 this problem escalated to GM Engineers in order to "find a fix"
2nd - Report on volt meter almost going into the red. Idling slow or stopped. Happened more than once, all power inside car - instrumentation, lighting all dies down. Note: little is running within the car requiring electricity.
dealer: could not find fault
overall, obviously dealer has provided no solution, SUPRISE!
3rd - Report on engine surging-bucking on accelleration. Car jerks on normal accelleration. while driving, nothing has an affect on the accell. You can floor it, take your foot off the gas, absolutely nothing changes this except applying the brake. Obviously a deadly situation, if occured on the highway, not only could i be injured in an accident, but several others around as well.
Dealer: Could not fault this condition.
overall, dealer's computer cannot find anything wrong. After offering to drive around with a diagnostic computer attached to the car untill the problem reoccurs, the dealer advised me that they only have one computer and could not comply with this request.
i hope someone has an idea as to what is going on with this car. In addition, there have been many fuses blown, light bulbs burnt out, everything you can name has probably happened. I really think that the dealerships do not feel the need to spend time with this car. GM obviously knows how to treat its customers good, providing no assistance at all.
