Building an exceptional product is one thing, but standing behind the product is another. General Motors, Chevrolet and the entire Camaro team believe in the pride behind the sixth-generation Camaro, and that isn’t more apparent than honoring the factory warranty should an issue arise at the track.
That’s right, General Motors will cover any mechanical issues or breakdowns even if they occur during a track outing or during a few passes at the drag strip. Lead Camaro engineer, Al Oppenheiser, discussed the policy with Motor Authority, with Autoblog confirming the statement with GM.
“If you’re not modifying your car and you take your production car to a track day and you have an issue with one of your parts, it’s covered under warranty,” Oppenheiser told Motor Authority. “That’s pride of craftsmanship that we know it will stand up to track use.”
However, don’t expect GM to foot the bill if the car has been modified in the slightest.
“We know when somebody changes their ECM calibration and we know if they changed to a cold-air intake, we can tell all that,” Oppenheiser said. “But driving it as you break it in from the dealership, if you have a half-shaft or whatever, it’s covered.”
The policy only surrounds the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, however, and does not ring true for owners of the V6 or turbocharged models. The policy will cover the 1LE V6, though.
