Hey everyone, I picked up my new ZR2 about 2 weeks ago. I had gone to the dealer on a Saturday and was disappointed to find that my first choice color (silver) wasn't readily available. They had a black one (second choice) on the showroom floor, so I put down a deposit, and said I'd be back the following Wednesday. Its a good thing I waited, because when I got there, I found a silver one with the wrapping still on it sitting there. It had just rolled off the truck the previous day. At least, I hope its a good thing, because...
In the passenger door pocket, there was something rattling around, and I found what looks like a panel or speaker clip. Then beneath the rear seat, I found what looks like an unused body panel bolt. Yesterday, I found out that my windshield washer was not working (crappy timing too, it was snowing).
So today, I opened the hood for the first time, and found two bundles of unused zip ties laying in the mess of wires in front of the battery. Most of the wires there were barely cleaned up and the 2 zip ties actually used, loose I might add, the leftover wasn't even clipped off. I cleaned up all that nonsense. I loosed the windshield cowl enough to get a peek in there, and found that the main washer fluid line was just dangling there. I connected it, and the sprayers work now.
I'm feeling pretty good about the extended warranty that I bought now, as I usually decline them.
I hope whatever idiot(s) that was responsible for all this stuff was just assigned to menial final assembly tasks, as he/she clearly couldn't pull off anything more advanced. The truck runs great, and I've tested all the major systems as apparently working, so that's a plus.
I dig the truck and have only minor complaints so far. $48,000+ and no garage door opener?
The interior is overly plasticy, but of course I knew that going in. As some reviews have stated, the truck is cool enough to forgive it.
I bought a Pedal Commander and set it to City +2 as recommend here. That totally transforms how the truck drives for the better, I was shocked. I added a Truxedo soft tonneau as well (whoever wrote the instructions at that company must now work at the GM assembly plant). It fits... ish. Good enough anyway.
Also I bought a new set of wheels and tires: Wrangler DuraTracs in 265/70/17 (1" taller than stock), and KMC XD139 Portal wheels (17x8.5 +18mm offset). I put the stock DuraTracs on mywife's '18 Jeep Sport+ this morning. So far the new tires haven't rubbed at all, they seem to clear fine. I'd guess in more serious off road conditions, a tad bit of plastic trimming would be necessary though. Probably not much.
Anyway, here is a quickie garage pic. Truck is dirty right now due to the snow storm. And a pic of my growing collection of spare parts.
