2012 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

problem #5

Jun 172014

Camaro 8-cyl

  • 42,600 miles


I took my vehicle to classic Chevrolet grapevine dealership after noticing while I changed my brakes the week before, there was axle grease scattered all over the rear of my rim, hub, axles, and brake components. After inspection, it was determined the cv boot had let go on the inside seal near the hub where the wheel mounts. My car is two years old and only has 42600 miles. I have also heard from several other Camaro owners on forums and in person discussions. Failure of the axle because of improper lubrication to the axle connection can cause serious injury or death should the axle fail while driving. Can you please investigate this issue and determine if a recall should be issued. Thank you!

I have been having a lot of problems with my steering on this vehicle. I was driving my car and was in a turn when the steering wheel kicked back the opposite direction I was turning and I nearly went off the road. The force was so great that it actually injured my shoulder when the steering wheel kicked back. The steering in the car has since been so sloppy that I am scared to drive it, the car is all over the road. I took the car to the dealer and was told the vehicle needed to be aligned. I took the vehicle to my local tire store and they checked the alignment which was all in factory specs. Took the vehicle back to the dealer test drove with a technician who drove with me and he stated it was definitely not an alignment problem. I left the vehicle at the dealer for 3 days and got a call that it was ready to be picked up. When asked what was done I was told nothing...the car needs to be aligned. I had them align the vehicle which by the way did not fix the problem. Please help before this car kills me or someone else.

I was turning the car to leave a parking lot and when I went down the slight slope the struts on the front made such a noise I though something snapped. I haven't had it checked yet but wow poor quality!

I constantly get a very annoying clunking sound from both driver and passenger side front strut or shock area when driving over uneven pavement or hitting bumps when driving at any speeds, the sound has begun to get louder, the steering gives way to any imperfections on roads or highways regardless of speeds which has now giving me the concern of safety, General Motors for some reasons has denied that this is a problem, stating that this is a characteristic of this vehicle.
