Convertible Rating

I would have to say right now it's a 9.0. Very nice car & have not had any issues. Currently 300. miles on odometer as of 2-04-2012. Bob.

I'm going with a 7.

It'd have been an 8 prior to the ZL1 - not fair, but neither is life
It'd also have been an 8 or 9 without the top and some other quality/fit&finish issues.

There can be no 10.....that's a dream car

8 Wish it was a bit lighter, I know its a 'vert in an already heavy car but a few hundred less pounds would be nice. Then again, I'm not taking it to the track so the ride quality makes up for it.

Subtracting 0.5 for the TR6060 2nd gear issue, but if I get any of the top problems it will be lower. Waiting until temps are over 65 to lower it again, especially with all the broken bows.

OK time is up

I am the OP and give mine a 9. Thanks for all 53 scores

The average score given was 9.770754

I knew you guys would give it a high score and I thought this vert. site needed a little sunshine on it.

I am aware the the poll was bias considering were it was taken. But still nice to see.

Keep the shine side up.


PS : You guys can't just give a number can you.
Thats why I like you so much.

I know what you're saying, but I don't really want anything else. I guess my emotions are just affecting my rating and hopefully that'll all blow over. I'm not just some schmuck that spun the "convertible sports car wheel" and bought the Camaro because that's what the wheel landed on. I've been waiting for this car for a while and dreaming about owning one. I remember getting all geeked up when the hardtop concept pictures were "leaked out" way back when. I went to a Camaro car show a couple years ago and got to drive a hardtop before some of the dealers even had any yet. I remember seeing those pre-production pictures of the vert in Australia and getting so excited. I live near Detroit and actually drove by the GM Tech center one day and saw a vert driving down the road before they were even available to order. I started hyper-ventilating! I actually wasn't even sure if I'd ever be able to own one, but things worked out for me in 2011 and I was able to afford one. I was on cloud 9 even though the weather's not good and it'll be sitting in the garage for a while. That may be part of the reason I'm so bummed. And then you can imagine what a pisser it was when I put the top down 1 time and my dream car was broken! It's like getting kicked awake during an awesome dream. My bubble just burst, my heart just stopped. Fun's over before it even had a chance to really start. Anyway, I'll stop my rant now. Hopefully as time goes on GM will finally figure this thing out and I can get my dream car back. Sorry to ramble on and please don't take this as a backlash at you, SUX. I was just venting. Thanks for listening.
