NEED SOME 2012 FEEDBACK!

I know that we are just getting started here, but there have been a lot of 2012's hit the road already. Can we get some feedback going here about them? Good, bad, indifferent.......anything at all?

Slight difference on the butt dyno - v6....it does run better. Nicely upgraded interior. Added cloth to door panels and the dash strip....in addition to the leather/whatever piece covering dash ...pics have been posted on the forum before. Nice to have power seat on passenger side. Steering wheel is more ergonomic than the 2011; even though I like the look of the 2011 better.

Liking the 2012 because it's a bit more livable. Depends on what you want: A livable car with perks (2LT, 2SS) or just the car itself (LS).

- People don't ask how to unlock the doors anymore because they have individual door locks now.
- Standard rearview camera on 2LT, 2SS
- More power is always nice
- I upgraded from LS to 2LT so the perks help but not necessary
- HUD is more of a cherry on the top
- I gave into the A6 because I had issues with M6; better for DD

love my 12.

I might be a snob, but the interior changes alone were enough to make it worth it. Add, the increase in HP, camera, and the knowledge that we are one year further in the production lifespan (more kinks worked out. i.e. no top rub marks) is just a bonus.

2012 Camaro = impressions after 700 miles...

LIKES:
V-6 engine is powerful
new rear view camera is terrific
Fabric on door panels & on dash strip are attractive
door lock buttons easy to use
new steering wheel nice upgrade
nice 19" rims & Pirelli tires
excellent paint finish
no rattles, no squeeks, no wind noise

DISLIKES:
A/C was not working right until after 3 repair trips to dealer
wish the tilt wheel was spring loaded like our Tahoe

I like all the changes for 2012 mentioned above and, for me and my passenger(s), the favorite change is the power passenger seat....it makes quite a difference for the better. About the only negative left, if you can call it that, is that there are still no fog lights for the RS.

Mentioned this in another thread, but to get accurate MPG, you have to reset it each time you drive. Just hold down the set button on the end of the stalk for a few seconds and it'll reset. From there, it'll readjust to your current driving.

My wife brought this up after she said she wasnt getting better than 19mpg, even at highway speeds. Once she reset it, it started showing 27-28mpg.

Just saw this thread. Coming from a 2010 1LT this 2 LT is a HUGE upgrade. Just based on what is now standard in the 2012s. 3 major pluses, HUD, Reverse Camera, and power passenger seat. Everything else that everyone mentioned here is also true. You can feel the diffference in the power although she's is not broken in yet. (only 300 miles). The hadling is better too. Don't know if it is just the steering wheel but it is definitely tighter.
