I posted when I found my new car. 01 blue vert. 6 spd. $24K with 40K
After I bought it, I found this creaking in the back about 90% of the
time when I took my foot off clutch. It was not torque tube. Went to
my friend and he felt it had something to do with break so I brought
it to the sellers mechanic. He heard it and told me to take it to a
qualified mechanic for vettes. Brought it to Paul Conte chevy and was
told it was the throw out bearing. The seller ( a car lot by the way)
asked me to bring it to his guy so he would not have to pay retail..
That guy said he did not hear the noise. I test drove with him and he
heard it. Said it could be linkage or something else.
I went back to the dealer and told him... he offered my my money back
and I took it.
Btw... It also made a thumping noise in the rear passenger side when I
went up my driveway and when I accelerated the valves sounded....
I love vettes and this one was a beuty.. But... I was never happy in
it. I am thankful I went to a reputible dealer that gave me my money
I found a red 01 vert for 26 grand 30K on the odometer. Thinking
about it. I may go for a c6 though. I think the shifter is
more...... precise and short.
Anyone selling a car like the ones I am looking at,, let me know.
