I don't understand you at all. In fact, with all due respect, that's probably one of the dumbest things I've ever seen written on these boards.
Not only to draw in new buyers but maybe to entice the people that bought an earlier 5th Gen and complained about the interior to trade for a 2012 model.

I wish they would have kept the 'CAMARO' wording on the steering wheel.

The stitching on the dash looks out of place and doesnt really serve as a divider, seems to just not flow well. The center AC vents are now surrounded by silver? Ugly, sorry to not go along with the majority. I personally hate the way that Camaro looks and it's a shame if they are going to start making changes to appease the masses who don't even own/buy a Camaro...

I'm sorry but that steering wheel looks like shit with that big ass chevy sign and everything. Not a fan of the new thing on the dashboard either.

I don't understand you at all. In fact, with all due respect, that's probably one of the dumbest things I've ever seen written on these boards.
At some point man we all disagree with a statement. In fact if we all had the same tastes or opinions it would be kind of boring. The difference is some people disagree and say so in a mature and civil way. On the other hand some people lack the ability to disagrtee without insulting other people. Don't say " with all due respect" and in that same sentece disrespect me. If there is any hint of dumbness it would be in your inability to state you disagree and leave it at that. Learns your mannerts dude...

Just like it is !

I love my 2010 JUST LIKE IT IS ! With the exception of the steering wheel & the uncomfortable hand position required due to bad engineering & the non- adjust ability of the passenger seat :upset: , I like everything about the
original design just fine.All for change just not for me.Yep it is definitely a
keeper.Might even take it with me.The cost of coffins now days - oh well, just a thought !

I like the steering wheel, but I do not like having the lock button on the door... I prefer it on the center console. Therefore, I am making this statement... If you buy a 2012 and do NOT like the steering wheel... I will be willing to trade and add a few bucks for the upgraded wheel.

I may switch passenger seats and steering wheel. The dah is cool but way to much work to switch out.

I use mine quite often, whenever I am dropping my wife off somewhere and she needs to get out of the car. Then again when I pick her back up.. The door button on our Tracker and HHR are much easier to find and operate quickly since they are right where your hand falls when you lay it on the armrest.

Still harder than just hitting a button once.

I like the stitching, very nice. The steering wheel is horrible. It looks like it doesn't belong in a car like that. The camaro is such a hot car. It deserves a really nice wheel. Maybe, the SS should have a special steering wheel along with the ZL1?

I like the Camaro lettering across the wheel, not the chevy symbol. Also, I like on my 10 on the bottom of the wheel, it says SS. Its small, but I like it.
