Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2011 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

Camaro 6-cyl

  • 9,300 miles


2011 Chevy Camaro less than 10,000K miles. Driving in traffic in maybe a 1% grade hill. Burning smell, the car wouldn't catch in 1st or 2nd gear. Lost all acceleration, had to cross multiple lanes on the highway. Sat in the car for over 2 hours for towing company. Then shop test drove next day, gears work, but bad burning smell continues. Shipped to Chevrolet. I did research online and see multiple people have this problem. This is a safety hazard and it placed my life into danger!

After only 12,500 miles and 9 months, the clutch in my 2011 V6 Camaro ls burnt out. The dealership is telling me that it looks like I drove it "aggressively." I have not, as it is my only vehicle and I obviously need it for work. They are not covering the clutch because it is 500 miles over my "wearable parts warranty." Now I have sent an email complaining about the issue to Chevrolet and they are sending a regional technician out to look at the car. But the fact remains that this is a common issue (check the forums) and should be fixed somehow.

Second gear grind. 2011 Camaro ls. Six speed transmission. Second gear grind occurs with every up shift or down shift. This occurs during acceleration and deceleration. At times car will not go into second gear at all causing concern for safety. I have contacted GM who has addressed the issue once but the repair was made with the same defective products. The issue returned after 3,000 miles. The attempted repair was. Synchronizers, new first and second gears, ball bearings and forks. Again after 3,000 miles the grind and second gear failure has returned and what appears to be worse then the first time. My car has not been modified and is full stock.
