Well this car has had so many problems I don't really want to list them all... I'm so glad I bitched to GM and got a free extended warranty. If it wasn't such an aweseome performer I'd really never buy another.

Motor - It sucked oil and needed a re-ring....
Clutch - Semi-stuck so I removed the assist spring and fixed it
Rear end - Has had to be re-built after a foray at the drags on street tires.

And now the latest... the dang trans is leaking at the front seal. I'm glad that I have a good mechanic at Casey Chevy who is a Corvette expert and he's cool with what I do with the car.

BUT... why the hell does this car keep on breaking... I'm not that hard on it :mah:

The General does make a nice video, wail the heck out of it they say. When i went in to order mine, the TV in the showroom played a video of the 04 Z. Showed it smoking the tires thru 3 gears, could hardly see the car for the smoke. Sideways on the road course, downshifting, and you could hear the rev limiter banging. Then they look at you when you take it in for a problem, like, what were you doing, abusing it.
:screwy:

Video Huh...I somehow seem to have missed out on a video...I got this really lame audio cd that tells how to program the 1 & 2 (&3) Seat presets and a few other self evident things. A 10 year old could figure this out in less that 30 seconds...wonder if any of those videos are still around...DVD or VHS format ?

04's only came with the CD, did away with the video after 03.

The Video is available right on this site. On the left side of the page. Go to Media Clips, It's half way down in 5 parts :cheers:
