Top Recall

I know its been discussed by some about a top recall. I had the recall done last week and the only issue I have had with my top since buying mine was a seal didnt seam to go back in place after putting top back up. I was wondering if those that have had numerous complaints with their tops have had this done yet and has it resolved your issue (it did mine)?
Also was wondering if those with the most problems did you leave your tops down alot while parked in your garage or not?

Have had mine for over a year now , I don't leave the top down when she's parked with the exception of the gas station but do take the top down any day the weather permits sometimes 6 days a week. I have had the recall done which seems to have stopped the wet floor board stuff but the wear stop above the passenger window is getting worse by the day. It may be that once it hits a certain wear point the recall measures couldn't stop it. A few weeks ago the dealer agreed to replace the top and says it's on order.

Went into Chevrolet of Puyallup today to follow up on the 'repair' from the TSB. A wire was now sticking out from the side and wind noise had gotten worse. To my surprise both dept. managers met me at the door and immediately started inspecting the top. By the time they were done they were fuming at the situation. They started a mind meld of ideas on how to approach both GM and resolving the problem. They were excited to hear (from me) that GM had a new mechanism for future Camaro production and immediately went about finding out about it. To nobody's surprise GM has been pretty mum to their dealers on the subject. Interestingly enough Brandon (of C5's GM Customer Service Rep fame) had contacted them and urged some action...though to be honest I don't feel that these guys needed much urging! In any case, I'll keep you guys updated on what happens next. The plan for now is to fix the current top with the ultimate goal of replacing it with the new top/mechanism down the line. As things stand right now, I'm pretty optimistic. Far more than I expected at this stage of the game!

I hope everything gets done right eventually Tib. And it's really great to hear that the dealership is behind you and your car.

Well, I hope I have given the dealership enough time to figure out how to do the repair. I have an appt. for tomorrow.... I don't want them to touch ANYTHING else. I guess we will see.....

Just got mine back from the dealer and noticed more wind noise as I was driving . My wife comments that she can see something flapping in the wind above the passengers side rear window. When we stopped I found that the rubber seal didnt seam back into the channel above the rear window. I could see a small diamater stainless cable showing. I seamed it back in and I will be watching it the next time I drive it.

Sorry to hear that steveB. It looks like poor workmanship is a common problem. I am very reluctant to take mine in for that exact reason.
