2002 Chevrolet Camaro from North America
Size-Style-Appeal-Fun...All in one package!
Steering Column makes a horrendous "groaning noise", when I turn it, to make a turn.
It first occurred as a "one-time" fluke noise and then shortly proceeded to become a more-often heard noise.
After taking it to the dealer initially, I put up with the "ridicule" from the service manager and then I involved the general manager in this problem with the car.
Finally, the technicians (6 0f them) heard the "noise" but could not identify it.
After four months and six major parts being replaced, and my doing w/o the car for 23 days, I am in arbitration with GM about declaring the car a lemon.
The steering column still makes the "groaning" noise and at times, will do it by turning it to the left as well as to the right, before moving the car in that designated direction.
I had a '95 Mystic Teal Camaro, that after being in the shop and their not being able to fix it, was declared a "lemon". I then switched into a Teal '95 Camaro, which I drove only on occasion. I sold it to my daughter, after owning it for four years and at 30K, it was a good buy for her.
She proceeded over the next year to have all sorts of mechanical and electrical problems with it.
It was a "piece of junk" when we traded it in, in 2001.
I had waited a long time, before venturing out to buy another Camaro and was very EXCITED about getting.
But, now after such a short time of ownership, I don't think that I will be keeping the car because of GM's inability to find the problem. Sorry to say!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
