They sure do . . . but public relations probably decided that releasing that information would do more harm than good.

they are relying on this car, the new Camaro, to save them.
I really hope not. The Camaro is a very small part of what they need to save them.

I'll admit I've freaked out about the 5th gen before.. but 25 pages of freaking out it a little unreasonable.

I, for one, appreciate the fact that GM is taking the needed time to bring us a reliable, well thought out product. If it takes longer, to keep it at a high standard of quality, so be it. This is the attitude that GM needs to be a relavent force in the automotive industry.

The alternative is GM rushing a product out, taking your hard earned money as soon as they can, and maybe sorta figuring it out later if something isnt up to par. Does anyone here remember GM's X-cars? Do yall want the 5th gen out fast so bad it suffers the same fate?

Heres a post from War Eagle on page 3 that got it spot on-

Take up gardening, quilting or some other hobby to help pass the time and in some cases go buy another car (no imports please) to drive for a year or two while you finally decide what your dream camaro will look like and have in it. I promise you if you are patient you will be able to get the exact car you want well below MSRP 12 to 18 months from now.

I know of several GT 500 owners who paid $15,000 to $20,000 over MSRP for their cars when they first came out and now they are miserable about it and feel like absolute idiots. Don't let that happen, remember "Good things come to he who waits".

Also this post reflects the opinion of an old guy and may contain BS or useless information.

Speaking from personal experience, being impatient in any part of the automotive industry is shooting yourself in the foot. Cool off, relax, appreciate what GM is going through to bring you a quality product, and you'll be enjoying a class leading pony car before you know it.

Cancelling your order to buy a g37 isnt a really good idea. Spending more money for a car with less power, and a shorter warranty? Not to mention once the powertrain warranty runs out you can count on that motor to leak and burn every drop of oil in it, and the transmission to burn out faster than an abused & neglected 4l60e. The only smart reason I can see to cancel an order on a 5th gen is the smokin deals on c6's and g8's you can find right now.
