Heater Core Leak
I noticed a smell of antifreeze in my 2010 2SS with the a/c on. Not strong, a whiff. As it got colder in NJ, i turned on the heat last week, and the windshield fogged - stronger smell. It had to be the heater core.
I brought it to the dealer yesterday, and my suspicion was officially confirmed. I know this is a BIG job, and the dealer has already warned of the risk of breaking the windshield during extraction before they remove the dash. Estimate is a week if they don't break the windshield - another week if they have to get a new windshield from the factory.
This does not seem to be a common problem, and the dealer said it is the first they have seen on a Camaro. That's both good and bad - they obviously have no experience making the repair.
I'm concerned. I'm considering trading it in on a new 2SS 1LE so that any problems from the repair after the warranty ends are not mine. Any suggestions or others experiencing this problem? I know I've gotten letters from the dealer recently seeking a trade-in on my car - are 2010's getting a good price on trade-ins? (30k miles).
