I have had My Camaro since last June and after leaving a meet and greet in Louisiana I ran over a truck tire retread in the middle of the highway which ripped off the front spoiler and pulled the back piece that covers the mufflers away from the body. I should be able to fix it but it still makes me mad. If only I could have missed it but when I came up on it there was no place to go. Just over it.

1500 miles: lawnmower guy scratched my fender with his mower, reported him to INS and no one in my neighborhood has seen him since... and the scratch was fixed $600 later.

4000 miles: 18 wheeler tire blew out in front of me, i avoided at all costs, but a piece left a rubber mark on the passenger door, buffed right out.

7300 miles now and just got a few rock chips i repaired with Langka kit this past week.

I got mine about 1,500 miles in! just a few weeks ago! I was so pissed off because it was a full parking lot and I had to park next to people and someone slammed their door into me leaving a big 'ol paint mark and a ding. Luckily I had it fixed by a paintless dent repair guy 2 days later and it only took him 10 minutes! My car looks new again! :-)

1500 mi.. Had my car at the dealer to get the GFX installed and a 3in. scratch on the right front fender came out of nowhere. They did pay to fix it.

Has anyone ever started a thread for a Dealer to AVOID for Service? I have the first one... A little off subject, I know..

I bought my Camaro on June 8th 2009 and in November of 2009 I pulled into the garage, which is a tight fit because my '70 'Cuda is all apart and undergoing a restoration. Well I opened the driver door a little too fast and slammed the shelf that is holding the 'Cuda parts. I got two small chips right down to the metal and had to prime them and then I just painted over the primer with my son's Testors model paint. Very professional, I know, but it is a daily driver anyway. Rob

Around 3000 miles I noticed a small chip near the passenger side gill, and around 4000 miles I noticed a small chip on the front part of the hood.
