Every now and again we hear of some sort of unfortunate mishap at one of the many Chevrolet dealerships in the U.S., like this Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition that was crashed through a dealers window, or when a male deer decided to ram its way into a Chevy dealer Pennsylvania. But none have frustrated us to read as much as this story a user posted on the Camaro5 forums.
The user in question traded his 1969 Camaro SS and 2011 Camaro SS in to buy a brand new, 580 horsepower Camaro ZL1. The car went in to the local Georgetown, DE dealer for a simple paint issue, which was covered by warranty. Back in December, an employee came in and decided to take the car for a little joyride, only to lose control of the car and slam it into a pole.
Currently, the dealer and owners insurance companies are sorting this whole mess out. Seeing as the ZL1 was written off as a total loss, the owner wants the dealer to replace it, but the dealership has no interest in doing that. Typical.
Police are currently investigating the incident. Criminal charges have not been laid against the employee, but as you can imagine, he no longer works at the dealership. We don’t know how this situation will pan out, but if you ask us, the dealer owes the owner a Camaro. Maybe gifting him a new Camaro Z/28 would be enough to restore the dealer’s now tarnished credibility.
