Corsa nightmare V.2

Well got my corsa cat back for my 2014 today and long and behold a problem. The driver side rear muffler was crushed. Since the truck was on the lift and it was crushed on the top non visable went ahead and installed. Well let say it sound horrible hollow echo at 2k then goes into a trumpet sounding scream. This is not my first issue with this product back in 2011 I install same unit on my old WK2 . In that case it was the baffel on one of the front smaller mufflers. Corsa send me the replacement and loved the product ever since. The box did not appear damaged and the hardware inside was protected with instapak foam. Which leads my to believe that maybe instapak foam might have expanded and pushed on the muffler when they were pack the box. I send them an email let's see how quickly they resolve this. Bummer

Sorry to see that. Obviously frustrating/disappointing. Good luck.

This will now escalate to me contacting Amex holding payment. There is no one taking fault on this damage parts. I spend $1400 on a exhaust from a vendor that does not care or consider the fact the item shipped from their Ohio factory like this. So it like robbing me blind.

Corsa--"It appears that you have more than a muffler that is damaged. The visible damage noticed during unpacking of the exhaust should have been noted immediately.* Just curious, what compelled you to install a damaged product?* We apologize for the inconvenience, but you need to call Auto-Anything, explain your situation, and have them contact *the shipping provider." DONT buy the Corsa this is second problem within 2 years with them.

I have to say I kinda see where they are coming from. I'd have never installed it. Hopefully your credit card company can do something.

Well since I was being charged $200 already for the install and the truck was on the lift with stock exhaust removed I told them install it and I would contact Corsa and swap out the rear muffler myself to save me from paying another $200 to install again. This is not my first rodeo with this company. With my last corsa the front resonator rattled and unit was replaced and have been content with the product. This time I paid more for the same part number and have been meet with resistance from their support. Since the box had no physical damage and all item were covered with instapak foam the only thing I can think is that they packed it and the instapak expands it pushed down on that area of the muffler. I would find it had to think they shipped it like that.

Re: Corsa nightmare V.2

The corsa rep I spoke with was clueless. She indicated they had no idea if the 2011-2013 exhaust would work with a 2014.

Re: Corsa nightmare V.2

I'm still stuck with out a resolution to this issue. Auto-anything pointing at Corsa. I've called Corsa and spoken to numerous people that will get back to me or that I should receive an email with update by the end of the day which is now turned into week.
