problem #1

Camaro 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
All four rotors became warped mysteriously just days after taking car to dealership to have oil leak, rear speaker, and left power window fixed. Baffled at how this could occur on a vehicle with such low miles and easy driving. However, mechanics at dealership drove my car for 30 miles - so who knows what occurred during that time. Had to pay brake shop $85 to get 4 rotors resurfaced, since dealer would not warranty. (stereo speaker still not fixed, and window still rattles).
