Page 6. The screen indicates "comfort and convenience", is there a seat position memory feature there?

I keep getting an error that says the file is damaged and can't be opened. I tried downloading it 3 times and even updated my Adobe to the newest version... 9.0. Anyone else having this problem?

Edit- I got it... I had to download it with Explorer. For some reason it didn't work when I was using Firefox.

Thanks for the post. It answered a lot of my questions.

I too hate it when you get behind the wheel and you're not sure how everything works.

I'm still not sure how the RS headlights work as fog lights.

Beleive it or not, my wifes Lexus didn't have the seat position memory feature that it was supposed to. Sure it wasn't on the sticker in the equipment list but we would have made sure it did had we had a checklist.

Our fault of course but I'll make damn sure I have everything available with my Maro. At least available to me now.
I am the same way. I have in the past wondered what the blank spot on the dash was for. Now I make sure, I just dont like the look of the blanks.

No, the 1st to 4th skip feature is only on the V8 to help avoid the gas guzzler tax

Maybe I'm being picky but why does GM always seem to put the steering wheel volume control on the right side of the steering wheel? The radio control is already on that side. I find it's a lot more useful on the left of the steering wheel, especially if you right hand is on the shifter.

is that what the key is really going to look like ? I am not too familiar with what the GM keys have looked like on the newer cars. Do you think they will ever do a push start, keyless go in the Camaros like they do on the Vettes ??

I havent read anything about it.
I think competition mode is where Stabilitrak will let you get a little sideways if you are on a track for example, but still reign you back in if you get TOO sideways. There's full OFF if you want to do whatever you want.

Haven't heard of a launch control for auto's. I assume most/all with be brake torquing.

Does the Camaro have a Homelink Transmitter for Garage Door Openers, houselights, etc.?

Looking at the page discussing the sunroof, it looks like there are 3 buttons on the right hand side. Are these buttons for the Homelink?

Yes, but not all trim levels get it. I know my 1SS isn't won't have it. :(

Press the button twice and you get competition mode where traction control is off and stabilitrak is still on to keep you from wrapping your ride around around a tree. If you hold the buttoin down they're both completely off

i like the engine oil life system, my acura rdx had that and you could check oil life percent and actually would go about 10-12 k between oil changes on full synthetic oil, had a 4cyl turbo and i never ran it hard though, just have to wait n see what the v6 will do. but it should save on guess work to when you change oil and save money, thanks for the doc
