Check for codes in the DIC and I know yearly C5's had a battery acid leak where the battery could crack and leak check under tray for any damage, the BCM and harness is under there, Good luck with your new toy.:beerbang:

there are quite a few common maladies... take a look at the harmonic balancer.. they are prone to wobbling.. rocking seat syndrome, headlight motor plastic gears fail easily, valvetrain noises, clutch rattle on manuals, steering wheel squeak, front deflectors get beat up on curbs,etc, if you need to jack or lift ,use lifting points only, E-brake retaining clips fail, cause a scrubbing sound, on autos, plastic shift cable connector at trans lever breaks .... electronics failures can drive you nutz ,and cost a fortune.. and a few more....... but, we love-em anyway..you can pull codes from DIC use this . http://www.stengel.net/diccodes.htm welcome to SV

I have heard that the gas gauges are sometimes problematic in correctly reading. I am having this issue currently and always had this issue since i bought it in 05.
