None what so ever.

Today, I plugged in my MP3 thinking this is going to take a while to figure out well, 10seconds later, im using the MP3 player AND CONTROLLING IT VIA THE STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS!!! I was elated.

I also like how when you switch off the car, the courtesy light comes on gradually BEFORE you open any doors. Nice touch.

There are lots of nice touches you will realise after you had your car for a week or so.

Basically, you should be aware that this is a first model year of a new car generation. Because of this, the Camaro may have some flaws unique to this model year. Having said that, I also want to point out that very few members have reported significant problems. The most common problems are mismatched bumper paint, slightly unaligned wrapping panels, radio issues when using USB, and long wait times for delivery.

And put one more thing in there to clog up an apparently "horrible" view?

Not sure it is a quality issue but my only concern is the blind spot over your left shoulder. With the shorter wheel base, I suppose you can trust it but I know there is still a small blind spot there and I am worried sometimes when I want to change lanes to the left. I am so used to having full view and you just cannot see anything out of that window due to the head rest blokcing your view.

None yet, but anything we buy these days could have issues. That said I like the way they took there time to listen to all input to try to please all Camaro addictions the best they could to let everyone create there own.

I find that most people that have this complant do not know how to set thier mirrors. If you can see your quarter panels in the mirrors you have them set wrong, adjust them out to where you just lose sight of the quarter panel and blind spot will not be a problem. Use your rear view mirror to see whats behind you and the door mirrors to see whats next to you.

I think a common issue I've seen so far is strictly cosmetic. That would be the A-pillar cover (mostly passenger side?) popping out and it is the only "defect" I've experienced at 1000 miles. Dealer has a new clip for me and that will take care of that.

Dealer is fixing the following wednesday after installing my stripes:

Drivers side window squeals on the way down
Drivers interior panel not aligned properly, hitting the vent
Passenger rocker is bulging out and not fully attached behind passenger door.

I'm really not worried about any of these, minor things to be expected on a new car.

Neither of my door panels line up with the dash. Is this something that is easily fixed? My dealer is in PA so can any dealer do this for me if I just walk in?

Thumbs up A Few Issues

Not to be unexpected of a new car design in it's first year of production but here is my list so far:

1) Front Ground FX Bib Air Dam does not line up in the center of the front end. Parts ordered.

2) Roof Post on drivers side hanging loose at top. Parts ordered

3) Rear window seal at bottom where trunk lid closes about 1/2 has fallen off. TBD

4) RS Package IBM painted Roof Ditch cracks. TBD

5) Battery cable recall. TBD

Nothing major that makes my L99 even close to slow!

Can we go to any dealership to get warranty work done? If so, do you think a dealer would less likely want to service your car if you didn't buy it from them?
