Sorry to be a Debbie Downer but I hate those so called "improvements". I mean, other than the door locks added to the door panels the rest is hideous. The steering wheel is not unique and looks like a Cruze. The gages are also a disappointment, I like the old retro look of the 2010 -2011 models. 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 agree maybe not the gages i dont like how there set up one minior complaint i have you cant tell how fast your going easely when your useing onstar turn by turn i am geting use to it but when i drive i use my DIC speed 99% of the time lol

but the steering wheel IMO was uqine to cammaro made it stand out from the fleet like it should camaro and corvette there stars now its got the same style as a cruize! ruins it a tiny bit

also it always feels nice when your driveing you look down and you see CAMARO just stareing you in the face...at least to me it makes me

What?

Why the hell should GM build the car to appeal to people who already own it?

The point is to get more people into the GM and Chevrolet fold. AKA folks who don't own the car yet.

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.

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.

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...
