Problem with the 2010 Camaro V6

Hello all, I dont know if this is the right place to post, but I'm hoping some one can give me ideas.

I bought a new 2010 V6 Camaro about 2 months ago in a town about 4 hours away due to a good dealership and price. My problem is this. On the back plastic bummer where it is snug against the metal frame, about 2 inches from the edges of the trunk door heading to the wheels, the paint has split and looks to be cracking. This isn't just on one side, but both sides. Right now the paint split is about 1/2 an inch. Again, nothing has hit my car, and its exactly the same on both sides,

I called the local Chevy dealer and they seems like they wanted me to drive to the original dealership to get it looked at. (again 4 hours away) Any suggestions? I set an appointment with them for Friday.

I dont know how to post the pictures or I would.

Thanks for your time and help!

You can take it to ANY chevy dealership for warranty repairs. Screw that, I wouldn't drive 4 hours.

Welcome to the site, sorry you're having "issues", hope you love the car otherwise.

That seems like a paint defect. It probably didn't get preped properly or your bumper is flexing to much. It should be covered under your warranty since you didn't hit anything. I hope!
Good luck.

You can take it to any dealership, and they will perform the warranty work. Is your local dealership friendly? If your local dealership is sorry and does crappy work, you might want to drive somewhere else.

luckily my dealer was in town so I had no problem getting I think the same problem you had fixed. Warranty is warranty it doesn't matter where you go it is still a chevy. I would do like the others said and take it to your local dealer. They kept mine for 2 days to fix the problem.

GM prefers you take it back to the selling dealer, or at least a Chevy dealership. In obvious emergent cases, you can take it to any GM dealer even if it's not a Chevy dealer. This is their protocol. Again, preferences are just that. So while they may whine a little about it, if you insist that GM dealership looks at it, they can't really say no. The "new" GM can't afford to pizz off customers now.

Hmmm. I saw something similar on a Camaro on display when I went to pick mine up. The issue was on the very front of the car, where the hood begins. I looked at mine carefully once I got home and noticed some irregularities/rough areas on the inside of the door area on both sides of the car. Hopefully this won't become an issue in the future. Good luck man.

That's a crock. I had a problem with the decal on the hood of my camaro being off center about a 1/4 inch. I bought my car from a dealer thats about two hours from me just because they had it in stock. I took it to my local dealer they told me to take it back to dealer I got it from. They wouldn't even do the GM recall on it. So I called GM told them what was going on they said that my local dealer could do the recall but the decal would have to be done at the dealer that sold the car to me, GM said the decal was a dealer install. I told GM that it was on the car when I bought it. GM said according to the vin it was a dealer install. Thats the New GM. I'm going to take it to a body shop to get a new decal.

Well...yeah it's a dealer install.

The dealership gets the car and the decal and installs the decal at the dealership.

Hence a dealer install.
