Default Need help in Dallas visiting

I have what seems like an oil leak on my 17 ZO6. Not sure. I'm looking for a preferred dealer in the Dallas area to go to first thing on the morning. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Any Chev. dealer in Dallas can and will handle it. Go to the nearest one.

Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine. Probably the biggest Corvette dealer in the area.

Not sure what part of Dallas your in, but Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine is my choice. But like SRJ - since most dealers in Dallas are big dealers, most should be able to handle it. Friendly Chevrolet is large, well established dealership close to downtown, though have not use them in about 20 years, just mainly because I'm on the other side of the metroplex. Good Luck!

Classic Chevrolet is 45 miles from where I reside. No one to my knowledge has
ever proven beyond a reasonable doubt that any Chevrolet dealer in the Metroplex is to be avoided for service. If there is, I've never seen that list.

I have 2 Chev. dealers equidistant my residence, and it's a toss up which one I would prefer for my new C7. Both, are competent from what I've heard.....

Like others have said any should be able to help you out ok. I’ve had good experiences at Stonebriar Chevrolet in Frisco and Huffines Chevrolet in Plano. Good luck with it.

Do NOT go to Bruce Lowrie in Arlington.

Classic is a good place to go as well as others mentioned here.

Default Classic for the win!



Brought it in first thing this morning. Found oil pan gasket for sure possibly rear main seal. They said as long as they have the parts they will get it done today. Can't ask for more then that! Thank you to everyone and you recommendations.

I'd be surprised if it's not from the dry-sump system, despite what you were told. A number of people have had such problems. Pan and/or rear seal would be very rare and I'd have a hard time thinking they'd have those done in a day. But, who knows? Maybe they are as proficient as stated and you'll quickly be back on your way. All the best.

Its odd that an oil pan and rear main would be leaking on that new of a car... curious to see if it actually is the rear main and oil pan or if its just a line somewhere spraying oil.
