Looking at buying a 06 Zo6.. Any rear bearing problems ??

I have been searching for an 06 Zo6 and found a pretty nice one. The only thing I am worried about is the car being auto crossed frequently. The dealer had to replace the rear bearing on the car with only 38000 miles. Should this raise some flags for me? Or is this normal?

Not a common problem, but they can fail. Not a big deal I wouldn't let that be a deal breaker. Be concerned with maintenance, warranty history, and condition. If you aren't familiar w/ these cars maybe ask to have it inspected by a chevy dealer. Pre sale inspection are usually 100 bucks well spent. Good luck!

Welcome to

Have the service department run the VIN number to get you a history of any service or recalls performed on the car. They should be able to print one out for you.

Looks great! You'll soon learn the fine art of detailing a black car if you haven't already.
