Arrow NEWS: 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 wrecked by Delaware dealer while in for service

Filed under: Car Buying, Coupe, Performance, Government/Legal, Chevrolet

Imagine, if you will, that you own a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe. To get this car, you traded in a 1969 Camaro SS and a 2011 Camaro SS. You take your new ZL1, which only has 10,000 miles on it, into the dealership you bought it from to deal with an issue with the paint, which is covered under warranty.

You then get a call from said dealership, explaining that an employee came in, outside of business hours, and decided to take your 580-horsepower sports car out for a joyride. During said joyride, the employee just so happened to wrap your ZL1 around a telephone pole.

That's exactly what John and Debbie Hooper claim they are going through, after an employee at a Georgetown, Delaware's First State Chevrolet allegedly wrecked their ZL1. This incident, which the Hoopers say happened back in December, has set fire to the forums of Camaro5, which is now home to a 26-page saga covering the Hoopers' dilemma.

The couple is presently in a fight with the dealership to get a replacement for their car. Insurance companies are involved and naturally, the Hoopers have lawyered up. From the sounds of the most recent updates, the dealership attempted to offer the Hoopers a replacement ZL1 that had more miles and options they didn't want, which the couple turned down.

You can read the entire long, arduous affair over at Camaro5. We also have some images up top of the wrecked ZL1 in question, kindly provided by Camaro5. Finally, we want to know what you think the dealership should be doing to try to patch things up. Head into Comments and have your say on the matter.2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 wrecked by Delaware dealer while in for service originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 10 Jan 2014 19:31:00 EST.

Was it not long ago someone left a digital recorder in a Camaro and caught the dealer mechanics taking the car for a joy who caused some damage and tried to blow it off one way or another?

This crap combined with this wrecked ZL1 story makes me want to puke.

If any of this happened to me, I would consider getting a ball bat and @#$%ing someone up.

I would tell the dealer they they were going to allow me personal access to their garage whenever I needed. Free access to every part they have to offer. And they would buy me a new Camaro EVERY YEAR! for the rest of my life... THAT is the only way CHEVY could ever gain my trust again. SCREW THAT! I am a Chevy girl, and if that ever happened to me, i'd probably turn into the Hulk's GF....
