1LE for everyday driver
 
I use my SS as an everyday driver in nice weather. How does the 1LE do? I assume pretty much the same? Do you guys see any reason to not just trade in my 11 SS and get a 1LE? It seems to have a bunch of the upgrades that I wanted to do.

Not specific to the 1LE, but the Hill Start Assist on the 2013 Camaros is extremely annoying. Make sure you test drive a 2013 on some hills to see if you can live with it. Had I known how invasive it was, I would have looked for a 2010-2012 Camaro instead.

Can you not turn off Hill Assist??

I use mine as a DD.

I went from a 10 SS to the 1LE...very happy I did.

No you can't
Here in Texas does not bother me.
But told in hilly places it sucks
I like it in parking garages

If you're getting an SS get the 1LE. I personally would choose the 1LE package over the RS AND 2SS if money was an issue.

I drive mine every day.

It is my DD. The hill assist is easy to avoid, just keep it out of gear until you are ready to move. I usually take it out of gear and roll to a stop, and if on a slope keep it out until green. I place in 1st and stay still or slowly move forward, no burning clutch either.

No way would I not buy the 1LE just because of the hill assist. 50% of the stop lights in WI are on a hill and it needs to be somewhat steep to activate. There are a ton of reasons to buy this car! Don't let someone talk you out of buying it over something so insignifcant!!!!

I agree. Anyway, for clutch longevity, you better keep your foot off the clutch pedal when waiting in traffic.

Not trying to talk the OP out of 1LE because of HSA. But since he mentions DD, I suggested that he test drive a 2013 himself, so he can form his own opinion on how it may or may not impact his own commute.

Don't get me wrong, I love my 1LE, and one blast through the twisties is enough to forgive all HSA infractions. It's just that my particular commute is a lot of stop and go, and it's not always possible to avoid HSA activation.

If you don't buy a 1LE because of the HSA.....FAIL!

NO WAY in hell is the HSA a deal breaker for passing on a 1LE IMO.

I'm thrilled with mine and the HSA is a minor inconvenience at worst. Mine is lowered and still very liveable as a DD
