    Red face starter grinding :(

    I've had my car for just over a year now. About 5 months ago I attempted to start the car and it sounded like the classic "starter gear not engaging the flywheel". I was hoping it was a fluke but...

    Last week it happened again for the second time. I know I'm going to have to wait until it gets to a point where the dealer can reproduce the problem before bringing it in. It just sucks that I have to wait, especially being a new car.

    It could be worse but it just bothers me. Years ago I thought nothing of just replacing the starter and/or flywheel depending on which was damaged.

    Anyway, I think i needed to vent.
    Mine: 2010 Camaro 2SS RS
