Hi! I have been looking for an SS for a long time and just bought this car and am waiting on delivery. Out of excitement, I just started resaerching the car more and the dealer and found some not-so-great reviews about the dealership, and just wanted to see if anyone may know of anything I need to look for on it. I understand it is a long shot, but thanks in advance! The car was originally from North Carloina, made its way to GA and finally to Orlando Florida.

VIN: 6G3F15RW7GL219867

Welcome to the forum @Cgab1991 , congrats on the SS. Hopefully someone can run a Carfax report for you, otherwise scroll through the classified section, it may have been listed here before a trade in.

Welcome, no open recalls and the paint appears to have been cared for. With any luck maybe the headers and cam taken care of.

Thank you all for your help! I was surprised to see so many comments so soon. I am incredibly excited, but a little nervous until I drive it myself. I tried finding a listing here and on other forums but nothing turned up. I haven't seen many of these cars that have major problems with only 60k miles, so I'm just hoping this one isn't an outlier. Lol

Funny thing, my car ('15 SLIHR) came to NC from FL by way of GA.

Welcome!
Thanks a lot! I have actually seen your car from searching Google for wheels and other appearance mods to see what looks best with this color. I must say, those wheels look wonderful! Very nice car!

How do you spend 40k and not test drive something? That is a lot of trust to put into a seller. Private party maybe is easier but dealers rarely have the history on the car.
Yeah, right? Lol I never would have done this before, but I know several people who have bought cars without test driving with great experiences, so I was hopeful. It was difficult to find time to test drive one of these cars before making a decision (Lots of time off work and gas/plane tickets), so I just bit the bullet, I guess. I am mechanically inclined enough to work on my own cars, including engine work, though. I would just prefer avoiding it with said $40k car. lol

Ask your local Chevy dealer to run the VIN for you…. Good luck with the purchase!

Sounds like you need a different dealership

Thank you all for your help! I have the car now and it seems to be in really good condition, excluding one small dent in the rear diffuser, one small door ding in the side, and some scrapes from dips or parking lot entries. Car seems to run pretty solid, which was my main concern.

There is a green LED, far right bottom on center console. that lights at low speed and helps when inching toward parking stop. Mine does not always come on automatically. So I try to look when parking. you get beeps to prevent some of that rash up front. If not on press button.

My '15 never comes on automatically unless I shift into reverse. It'll stay on after shifting into reverse, even when you change back to forward. I always thumb it on when I'm parking.

Owner's manual description of park assist feature.
Note that the feature operates only below 5 mph. It is automatic in Reverse gear but must be turned on in any forward gear IF the vehicle has gone above 5 mph after reversing.

9-36 Driving and Operating
Assistance Systems for
Parking or Backing
When the vehicle is in R (Reverse),
the Rear Vision Camera (RVC) and
Rear Parking Assist may help the
driver to avoid a crash or to reduce
crash damage while backing and
parking. Some models may also
have Rear Cross Traffic Alert
(RCTA), Automatic Parking Assist
(APA), and/or Front Parking Assist.
When the vehicle is shifted into
R (Reverse), the RVC displays an
image of the area behind the vehicle
in the center stack display. When
the vehicle is shifted out of
R (Reverse), the screen returns to
the previous content, after a short
delay. To see the previous content
sooner, press one of the radio
buttons. If the message Service
Rear Camera System is displayed,
the vehicle may need service.
{Warning
The RVC system does not display
children, pedestrians, bicyclists,
animals, or any other object
located outside the camera's field
of view, below the bumper,
or under the vehicle. Perceived
distances may be different from
actual distances. Do not back the
vehicle using only the RVC
screen, during longer, higher
speed backing maneuvers,
or where there could be cross
traffic. Failure to use proper care
before backing may result in
injury, death, or vehicle damage.
Always check behind and around
the vehicle before backing.
1. View Displayed by the Camera
1. View Displayed by the Camera
2. Corners of the Rear Bumper
Driving and Operating 9-37
Displayed images may be farther or
closer than they appear. The area
displayed is limited and objects that
are close to either corner of the
bumper or under the bumper do not
display.
On vehicles with the Rear Cross
Traffic Alert (RCTA), a triangle with
an arrow may also display on the
RVC screen to warn of traffic
coming from either direction. This
system detects objects coming from
up to 20m (65 ft) from the left or
right side behind the vehicle. When
an object is detected beeps sound
from the left or right side, depending
on the direction of the detected
vehicle.
With Rear Park Assist, and if
equipped with Front Park Assist, as
the vehicle moves at speeds of less
than 8 km/h (5 mph) the sensors on
the bumpers detect objects up to
2.5m (8 ft) behind and 1.2 m (4 ft) in
front of the vehicle within a zone
25 cm (10 in) high off the ground
and below bumper level. These
detection distances may be less
during warmer or humid weather.
{Warning
The parking assist system does
not detect children, pedestrians,
bicyclists, animals, or objects
located below the bumper or that
are too close or too far from the
vehicle. It is not available at
speeds greater than 8 km/h
(5 mph). To prevent injury, death,
or vehicle damage, even with
parking assist, always check the
area around the vehicle and
check all mirrors before moving
forward or backing.
An obstacle is indicated by audible
beeps. The interval between the
beeps becomes shorter as the
vehicle gets closer to the obstacle.
When the distance is less than
30 cm (12 in) the beeping is a
continuous tone for five seconds.
Beeps for Front Parking Assist are
higher pitched than for Rear Parking
Assist.
Turning the Features On or Off
The "P"button near the shift lever
is used to turn on or off the Front
and Rear Parking Assist. The
indicator light next to the button
comes on when the features are on
and turns off when the features
have been disabled.
