Looks like a jury of my peers would be deadlocked in a trial to determine if an entity engaged in misleading and deceptive practices. Hmmmm. Seems the case would pivot around the notion that the paint color was the limited part of the edition.

To the OP: It would be rather silly to be mad

It's like being mad that the next year's model of car gets a horsepower bump. GM sold a lot of green cars, so yeah they are gonna do it again. Going where the money is makes business sense.

And aside from the stitching, the 2010 special editions aren't that different cause now on 2011 2LTs and 2SSs, you can get green door panels. So I guess you 2010 guys do have limited edition green thread in your seats.

Your life sucks, green people. What you really should do is get rid of the camaro and go buy something truly rare like a pagani or bugatti. Problem solved, right?

Sigh, why is the point always lost in the weeds? - I would not care if GM stated they were making 144,000 synergy editions over the next 3 years. What I care about is the lack of consistence in the marketing message fro GM. I've read some posts that stated gm is just out of bankruptcy so they should be able to say and do what ever sales cars. I strongly disagree.

America was built on our word as a promise un-compromised. What we said, we did, simple and true. If you believe the synergy edition was a limited edition based on the synergy paint then gm has proven its willingness to renege on its word. What other things have they said that we should simply consider marketing fodder that will sale cars today with no worry about tomorrow??

On the other hand if you believe the synergy edition was just some green color thread - I suppose you are wondering what all the typing is about...

You want to know what I'm mad about?

I wanted my Camaro in SGM but I also wanted a V8. So I got a different color.

Now, GM is releasing the color for the V8 models.

If you took all the SGM 2010 Camaro's and put them on one lot, you wouldn't feel so special. What I'm saying is, 2400 cars is actually a large run of special editions, compared to say 50 ZL1 69 Camaros, or 547 GNX Grand Nationals.

GM said they were offering a limited edition car which they did. I don't recall anywhere in the marketing where they said the color would be gone forever.

Anyhow, when you see one on the road, you know it's special, it looks like it has batteries attached to the paint job somehow to make it glow like that. They look awesome!

Well I guess the best way to sum it all up is it was a special edition. Not a limited edition. The cars didn't have a numbered plaque. So the only thing that limited it was the amount of people willing to settle for a non RS 1LT. It's still a nice car. I always liked the color.

They should have retired the color and replaced it with another limited edition color.

Are you worried that there will be more synergy green Camaro's than aqua blue metallic Camaro's?

I thought the whole basis of this arguement was that they were offering the SGM color on cars for 2011? Buying a $28,000 car for collector value, or whatever you think makes your car more special than the 150,000 other gen 5's made, is ridiculous. I mean seriously, that's like buying a Ford Escape and thinking it's going to be a collector item...... if that is your concern, then go get a GT500KR, or a ZR-1 or something and put it away for 50 years with 30 miles on the clock and we will see if your investment turns out.

You are right, I just don't get it......

And you don't have to thank GM, YOU paid that much money for a 1lt car. You got a lot of other nice options on it as well.




For the second time here guys, just drive and enjoy your cars for what they are.

You dont get the green ambient lighting on the 2011. Or the stiching on the interior.

Also the TF edition parts and stripes can be ordered from a dealer and slapped on any car. It doesn't even have to be yellow.

All it was dealers probably cried to GM they wanted a SS in synergy green to sell by request. So in a nut shell they released it. Money talks!
