I own a 2011 camaro 2SS Black in color. The car is my daily driver and I travel on the highway all the time. My car looks like bad. The quarters are chipped up real bad. The rockers look like they have been sandblasted. The bottom of the front fenders look like they have been sandblasted to the bare metal. The car has 15,000 miles and looks like it has 300,000. I own a 1994 camaro with 200,000 miles and a 2002 firebird with 115,000 miles. They look better than my new camaro and they still have the factory paint! Each was my daily driver since I have bought them new. I am so dissapointed in GM. I have made up my mind that if they do not warranty my new camaro, I am going to trade the car in for something else that does not require a paint job every year so it will not rust out in 2 years. The front bumper and rear bumper are fine and they are in the line of fire from other vehicles and rear tires. I believe its something in the paint that was used for the metal body of the car. The bumpers must have flex additive or adhesion promoter. I have been trying to find other camaro owners that have this problem. We need to get together in numbers and let GM know that we want quality in 41,000 dollar cars. They seem to have better quality in the paint of cobalts. I have friends that own them and they look 100 times better on their front fenders and rockers. GM needs to back up the warranty they claim. I am telling whoever is thinking on buying one of these cars be warned. Either stay away until they get the paint issue solved or be prepared to deal with chips and paint issues. I am so disappointed.Report it
