well, well. i bit the bait!!! i bought a corvette 427. boy it is gorgeous,really fast. i wish to keep on talking up but that is as far as i can go. the car came with a defect on the steering column. the dealer replaced the 3 components responsable for the steering of the corvette. did not fix the problem. i got inform that GM was in a hurry redesingning a new steering column for the vehicle. finally the steering column was fixed,took more than 21 days). the car was opened and put on the surgery table at least 5 times. whats the result of it:
1) car leaks, my driveway ruined
2)a friction noise when you take off. got told that is a normal noise for gm 6 speed transmition.the only problem is
do not wait for the car to reach the consumer hands to redisign vehicle parts and components.
when the consumer purchase a new product that has extensive defects , instead beating the consumer by disecting the car more than 6 times, please provide them with a new product. specialy if the particular cost over $90 000,00.
car was purchased a month ago and the vehicle is still at the dealer. dose not look good for GM.
I also bit the bullet and bought a new one but I am having automatic transmission issues. Long trip driving is NOT a joy unless you are in the throttle constantly. I tried that and got a speeding ticket.
