Problems with Monaro?

Noticed some of the guys on LS1 saying there's a problem with delivery and manufacture of the production Monaros. Should be interesting to see how they go about solving the problems..

Nearly always are with the first of a model. Wait 12 months unless these type things don't bother you

This doesn't sound good!

We you guys get your coupes, watch the front tyres. We had a couple come back today that had the canvas showing on the inside. One car had 7000kms and the other had 11000kms on the odo.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Thumbs down

Hmmmmmmm Production and customer delivery problems does not sound good considering the huge hype this model was given.

Also sounds like they have a big problem with front camber.
Did not the Stateman have a problem with rear wheel camber and scrubbing of inside rear tyres..??

Where are the all powerful (lap dog) motor mags now...???

Nipper....

How much for 30 minutes ??

As far as I know the VX was meant to have fixed to a degree this tyre wear problem.

Rears on my mates Vx look better than the VT at the same stage.
