2007 Z06 Engine Problems???
2007 Z06 ENGINE PROBLEMS???
Has anyone experienced engine problems with their 2006, 2007, or 2008 Z06 with the 505HP engine?
Please see the enclosed product update I got from the Chevy dealership I purchased my 2007 Z06 from!
To make a long story short, my car has 7500 miles on it. I was driving it on 5-12-08, about 35mph, it felt like the car came out of gear, then it sounded like the engine totally came apart!
The dealership picked the car up the next day. After they examined the engine, I was told that the cylinder and piston broke, and the engine was totally ruined. At first I was told that they would send the car back to the Bowling Green Assembly plant to fix. I was then told that they would not pick my car up in California, however, they would send the new engine to the dealership for an installation. Right now my car is at the dealership getting the new engine installed……..
HAS ANYONE HAD THIS HAPPEN????????
I am not happy about it. I paid 93k for this car. Now it is not a numbers matching vehicle anymore. Also, what has GM done to prevent this from happening again? Luckily when it broke I was driving it easy. If that engine would have broke while I was driving 100mph, it would have spun me around in a circle………..
I appreciate any feed back on this situation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
