ISSUES with YOUR CAMARO!

Ok, So I'm tired of seeing people with issues this far into production and after so much qaulity control! WTF, right? But I've witnessed worse with 1st year model from other makers. So somone earlier had a post saying something about making a CHECK LIST for issues with our new cars(to be in my case). So here we go people let's start posting all known issues that we as new car buyers/owners need to beware of and check on when we recieve/'d our car(s). Please I would appreciate it if people did not start random discussion I would like to take this thread seriously and make a solid CHECK LIST this will help all people who actually care about their new Camaros. THANK YOU...

-JewelZ-

Most of them are perfect, hopefully mine will be. But I hope this thread will help us all make 110% sure that it is 'purrfect'.

There will be issues with all cars during all years of productions.
If our own lives don't last forever surely our cars won't either!
