I think Sirius bought XM or vice versa, I don't think you can get either, or - if that's what you meant.


The only thing I was disappointed in is that there's no seat memory. I'm not very tall and when service people move my seat, it takes me forever to get it back to the right place. A full power passenger seat would have been nice, but I understand the sensors made that an impossibility this time around.

I'm COMPLETELY happy with this car.

Love the car but'
1. Do something about the lack of road feel in the steering, it's feels to twichy.
2. Loose the "mail slot", and replace it with a working air intake that looks something like on the 67 vette big block.
3. Move the 3rd break light up into a notch that looks something like the 58 Impalla air vent that is above the rear windiw..
4. Relocate gas fill to driver side.

OK, I thought of a few more things over the past few months;
1. - Since the 6 piston Brembo Brakes and larger disks from the CTS-V Caddy fit the Camaro so well with very little modifications, they should also be included with the LSA engine package for the Z28.

2. - The heritage grill should offered as a painted RPO or included in the Z28 package as a painted grill.

3. - Have the engineers look at putting 275/20 tires on the front and 315/20's on the rear for the Z28 package. Also have them look at using 19" rims with 275's and 315's front and rear for the Z28. The CTS-V used 19" wheels and it would lower the Camaro a half inch.

4. - Different spring rates to lower the car about an inch and still keep it safe without any kind of rubbing. 19" wheels and lowering the car an inch would give you a .02g increase in handling.

5. - Please change the fake 'gill indents' in front of the rear wheels to REAL air intakes for the rear brakes like Jay Leno's camaro, ZR-1 and Z06


I am done for now, thanks again. Steve

I LOVE absolutely everything about this car, as some of you might know by now...lol...

I thought of an idea yesterday, and I don't know if others have already mentioned it yet (or thought of it at all)...

I love the heated seats feature on my 2LT/RS....I use them all year 'round since I have a very bad back....

My suggestion/question is this: is there any way to have a dual control for the heat feature on the seats???...

What I mean is, right now, when you activate the heated seats feature, the whole seat gets hot - the back and the bottom...sometimes (especially in the summer), I just want the back of the seat to get hot, not the bottom part where I'm sitting...

For those of us that use the heated seat feature as a 'heating pad' for our sore backs, is there any way to have 2 settings: one to just make the seat back warm, and another to heat the whole seat??...

That's my comment....other than that, everything else is so minor to me in the 'grand scheme of life', since I love this car more than any other car I have ever owned IN MY LIFE!!!...

Thanks for listening, and 'now back to your regularly scheduled Camaro5 viewing'...

That is the way the seats are on the 04 Denalis. I too have a bad back and just heat the back of the seat.

Hi Teri, I have to agree with you on this one. I rarely have to wait to get to a pump, i'm liking it on the right side. Only complaint on gas tank is the near worthless cap holder, if the car is jarred by a closing door or a gust of wind the cap falls against the fender.

Other suggestions:

I discussed the power passenger seat with Scott at the Portland Car Show. GM is aware of the issue and it kinda sounded like they will be doing something about it even if as an option.

Interior lighting is non existant in the rear and too bright in front for the driver if a navigator is using the light. I like the map lights in my '06 Colorado.

Consider an easier interface on the Boston system for adding amps, like RCA outs.

Memory drivers seat.

Navigation.

Climate control. Single or dual zone.

I realize every improvement has it's associated cost but I would pay a little more to have some options available. The 2010 Camaro is already a value so I don't think a little more cost would hurt sales. Some of us boomer generation like performance as well as comfort.

Keyed, keyless, remote, hand crank. It doesn't matter what starts the engine it is going to behave the same until all the parts get lube on them.

Sorry for multiple posts. Have you actually loooked at how well the road is lit up with the HID lights. Better than any fog lights i've ever seen or used. I think some people just want funtional fog lights because either they think four lights are automatically brighter that two, or they think four lights look cooler than two.

I don't think fog lights will light the road directly in front of the car any better than the HIDs already do unless you add another set of HIDs which would probably be too bright overall to be legal. It would be a waste of money as well as an unneccessary added load on the electrical system.

- Keyless start; I hate diggin' for keys, espeically in bucket sets. I'll pay $500 for this option!
- Better interior lighting (Mood lighting)
- Copy the convertable's rear view mirror for better vis
- Memory seat with split bottom/back heating like the Tahoes
- Afterburner tailights on the RS models
- Shave 150 pounds
- Make the steering wheel less retro, more normal
- Keyless start
- Did I mention I will pay HUGE bucks for keyless start?!?!

I'm just throwing this out there... You'd rather pay $500 than take a key out of your pocket just before you get in the car?

Power Seat on Passenger side

My wife said there needs to be power adjustments on the passenger side. To raise the seat up.

The seats in my SS do that - I can have both on or just the back...

Is that a difference with the LT vs SS?? Seems odd..

Two issues I have with the camaro one of which I can partially correct and the other I cannot at this time:

1. Better use or use in general of sound dampening throughout the car. I added my own in the trunk and can add it relatively easy under the seat. The rest however I dont want to have to remove my interior.
2. The oft echoed passender seat issue. Some way to at least raise and lower the seat would be great.

Cheers

Sound dampening? Did you install a loud exhaust or something? The Camaro has the least amount of road noise of any car I have driven, just sayin
