I do NOT want any OLD complaints. The Camaro Team are well aware of problems & take your complaints very seriously.

I am looking for your wishes, dreams and any changes you would like. Remember that most changes come with trade offs, $ cost or weight. What would you like me to present to the Camaro Team?

Hey Janet,

I would LOVE to have the 1LE concept become the real deal but I like the SS paint schemes just fine for me. Upgraded seats would be nice too, Recaro?

My Wish List...

A memory seat. When you have a clutch, the seat position is key, so when I let my husband drive the car, we end up spending the first five minutes of the trip adjusting the seat!

Steering Wheel. It should be unique, not shared. Bring back "Camaro" on the steering wheel.

The disciple strategy is genius and makes me want to continue to purchase Chevrolet muscle cars. As for improvements, I'd suggest an optional Navigation system, Recaro seats, and factory gearing options. In the future it'd also be great to have higher end V6 camaros share suspension components with the SS i.e. differential, LSD.

And keep "Camaro" on the steering wheel!

How about fog lights in the same color spectrum as the head lights, it drives me nuts how the white light of the HID's make the fogs look so off, and cheep,

I would like to see a fully forged rotating assembly. The engineering in this car is second to none. There is no room for upgrading the motor.

Create sleek looking splash guards that fit with gfx, like the ZL1. Extra layer or two of clear coat. Recaro seat options. I'm a fan of cooling seats as well. Auto climate features, more up to date user interface and gps. Have the person that thought saving costs on the owners manual holder and switched to a ziplock Baggie fired. That's almost the most ridicules thing about this car experience.

I am enjoying reading these comments.

Many very, very inspired. Some entertaining.

Great job, guys -- keep it coming! One of the biggest assets to being a Camaro Enthusiast involved in the community is the various inputs we have to the team of great people who Make our cars. Take advantage when these opportunities present themselves!

A couple of body ideas here. The taillights make the one piece rectangular in shape, Put the backup lights in the assembly also. The rear bumper cover instead of making it come to a point in the center flaten it out with maybe a little more pronounced bumper. The nose of the car is to sharp round it out a tad And please make the rs model like the original and give it hideaway headlights.

T top is a must, hide away headlights, for the l99 sport mode should disable afm, and upgradeable performance goodies (sways, springs, headers, superchargers, and etc that keeps the warranty
Just my 2cent

Would like a larger entrance into the trunk and more support for mods. Leds lights (no sunglasses though) as standard would be nice as well and of course a bit lighter and better handling. though seriously if ya want to give the corvette the best at least allow the mod community to keep their warranty.

I'm curious...in terms of safety wasn't the Camaro one of the first cars to ace the new NHTSA crash standards for 2012?

Will there be the possibility of front knee-airbags? or rear-side/thorax bags? The small Chev's are getting as many as 10, and I think the current Camaro only has 6?

-2 front
-2 side curtain
-2 side seat

right?

1. Useful sun-blocking Sun Visors
2. No Sharkfin - or make it bigger and meaner looking - may as well add dorsal fins to go along with the gills in that case.
3. No Nav Screen - I don't like having a video game to distract me; or at least make it a hide-away so I can use it if I really need to.
4. Useful trunk lid and space.

Janet...I've thought of something else.

I'm very happy with the "good from the start" approach the team has taken with the 5th gen. Although this raises the initial price a bit, it helps the car appear much more competent. (see: 4-corner Brembos)

I'm also impressed with the refinement the Camaro has versus other cars in the segment.

Two easy things -- software vs hardware... More HUD display options, and the ability to auto reset the trip meter upon refueling (I actually reset avg fuel economy, speed, etc. too but I'd settle for a Trip A reset).

T Tops would be cool.
