What’s it like to live with a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28? Well, Motor Trend is helping us find out as they march through their long-term loan of the car. This time, the publication has performed some routine maintenance on the 2015 Z/28.
First of all, maintenance is a mixed bag on the 2015 Z/28. As MT points out, you’re getting the affordability of owning a Camaro, but also paying for the race-trackiness that comes with the Z/28 badge. An oil filter for the 2015 Z/28 costs $10. But the oil change? $123.88. That’s 9 quarts of fully-synthetic oil. You win some, you lose some.
If one thing grabbed our attention from the maintenance report, it’s the service bulletin General Motors has issued for Camaros, including MT’s 2015 Z/28. A clunking noise emerged from the right-rear passenger area when entering a driveway from an angle. The fix? Hit the area with a hammer. Yep, GM has advised dealers to go Jeremy Clarkson on the problem and “dimple frame/sheet metal to correct oil canning noise” to keep the metal from flexing.
That was no charge, thankfully.
