Who thinks this is unacceptable??

This is the quality interior that GM gives to RICK HENDRICK!!
What the hell man that looks worse than KIA!!! Can we please have an adult discussion and keep the fanboyism to minimum

so far every one I have seen with the acrylic panels has been that way...I don't know if it is a design flaw in the door panel or what...

I find that unacceptable........and I might be in the minority about this but if the car I ordered shows up and has that kind of flaws I will not be taking it. Yes that is harsh but seriously this is what the consumer expects today. I mean the car doesn't have to be perfect but seriously? panels not matching up by more than a half inch is just rediculous.

I'll reserve final judgment for when I see a car in person, pictures can be decieving. That being said, those pictures are not encouraging. But as soon as I fire up that LS3, I'll completely forget about it.

A Camaro5 member brought this up to a rep at a show, I remember reading that thread. Apparently they didn't fix it. I will say though, that I rode in one for a good half an hour and didn't notice this at all. Perhaps the IO interior's sharp contrast makes the misalignment more drastic.


Edit: also, this does not look bad in the production pics on the GM site:

I agree with you. Pictures can be deceiving, so I'd like to wait to see one in person. It could just be the angle. However, if it isn't, I certainly hope that's something they get fixed before my car comes in, and preferably of course, for everyone's car here.

I am also tired of people saying "as soon as I fire up that LS3 and run through the gears none of those issues will matter" I do not buy into that stuff. Seriously the car could be a piece with rattles and doors that don't line up on your spanking new $30 grand vehicle and you'll say "o hell she runs good, don't mind those little things." If that is the way many of you think that is great but the market does not drive for things to be like that any more. I for one think that, not just the camaro in particular, but any GM needs to be damn good from the get-go the way the economy is.

I'm sure I will get yelled at for that but that is just the way it is.

Hard to explain away something that, apparently, blatantly wrong. I said apparently because pictures can be deceiving, but I don't think that's the case here. Certainly doesn't make me happy, but at this point....

Im not totally convinced that this picture presents a design flaw, but if that's what it turns out to be, I'd be pissed if I paid 35k or more and the doors didn't line up with the dash. Yet another reason not to buy a first year car.

It would be interesting to see the exterior side of the door that matches that interior shot. I'd like to hope that it is just a "bad picture" or a door alignment issue.

I'll be pretty disappointed if they start showing up to be delivered with this problem and I'm sure that as people start cycling through dealerships looking at the V6 models this would be caught by some "normal consumers" also....not just us enthusiasts.

Mods? GM Employees? Can any of you take a moment to provide some info?

Thanks!!

Yikes thats a little scary especially since my fully loaded 2SS/RS is Approx.40k with all the goodies. I don't think it would keep me from buying the car but wow how did they let that slip through. I'm seriously hoping pics are misleading in this case.
