It bothered me how he kept saying zed also. GM should send out a memo or something.

I understand in Canada the letter Z is pronounced Zed, and the car is made in Canada, but it is an American car. So the official way to say it from GM employees should only be one way.

Just like coke, pepsi and mcdonalds

GM adopted the metric system for building their cars, why couldn't they adopt the international standard for the English pronunciation of the letter 'z', zed?

What I'd like to see them do with this is ADD a GRAB BAR inside in front of the passenger seat (below dash panel and above glove box) so when they get scared, they have extra confidence to be witness to the "Highest Performance Production Camaro in GM History"

It would add attitude, solve the open space issue all at once! Thoughts?
