Explain that a little better, please. Hold a button, or the blinker, or what?

When my 2SS was at the dealer for a few hours they gave me a Malibu to drive and it had real time and average fuel economy on the DIC. Made more sense to me than just the average. It would be nice to see a real time readout.

Fun fact that a guy in Birmingham AL learned tonight at the track (don't know if member here or not)

If you have a V6 Camaro, no matter how badly the SS M6 is spinning and wheel hopping, once he hooks up he'll go by you like you're sitting still.

Not always! Just ask my some of my SS Music City Camaro Club buddies that I have beaten at the track a few times.

The better seal part is right, don't thing it has anything to do with pressure equalization, though.

Here's one (not sure if it's been mentioned): When in reverse, if you have a stock rearview camera, turning the steering wheel results in the guide markers in the camera display curving to show the path you'll take as you back up.

If you turn the key in the ignition, you can drive your car.

Very handy indeed, of all cars I ever had or seen, the placement of the trunk release button could not be in a more perfect place......My hats off to the button designer at Chevy

kind of dangerous to have a car shut off while its moving. I highly doubt GM would add that feature.

that and so the window can go up under the trim at the top of the door.

a couple things I've noticed though (not going to go back and read all 30+ pages)

the DRL's go off when the emergency brake is engaged

the trunk release only works when the parking brake is engaged

and the DIC dims when the headlights come on

Is that a manual vs auto thing? My 2012 auto doesn't need the parking brake engaged to open the trunk.

To be fair, not everyone knows that on the gas gauge in the dash, there is a picture of a gas station gas pump. on that image, there is an arrow.
The arrow points to the side of the car that the gas cap is on.

The shift trigger button stays halfway depressed when you shift to Manual Mode on Automatics.

If you own a 2013 LS Auto then the tap shift buttons don't actually shift the car, they simply adjust the top gear limit up or down. The car still does the shifting. Plus, there is no sports mode. Real cheap Chevy!

It doesn't have to be in park, but you have to be moving at less than a certain speed for the trunk to open.
