One of the guys in our club has a c6 vert with the z51 package ! The other day he was out riding and started smelling gas fumes very strong ! He had it towed to the dealer and they found that on the fuel lines where they run by the trans they have two clamps on them and one is slotted ! The clamp had slid and the fuel line rubbed a hole in the fuel line and it was dripping on the exhaust ! They checked another C6 and it was also doing the same thing ! Please beware ! His car only has 3k on it !

Also heard a story of a C6 in Orlando where the brakes failed and the guy crashed......super low mileage.....according to the dealer, this wasn't the only one....

I'm glad he had decided to have it towed. Most people are not that smart.

I'm even happier that there was no real losses on this other than time and the cash for the tow.

And, thanks for warning all C6 owners!!! :guiness: :drunken: :eek:
