If there was one thing you would like GM to fix in the Camaro, what would it be?

For me it would definitely be the manual transmission. My 2SS LS3 took me to driving nirvana until I ran into the 1-2 shift grind during hard acceleration. A search shows I am not the only one alone with this issue.

At 2500 miles, changed shifter to MGW but still have grind. From my grandfather, to my dad, and now to me, my family has always been Chevy people. Dealer has not called me back despite leaving messages. If GM doesn't fix this to my satisfaction I will trade it in for a Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger - two cars I have driven which does not have a transmission grind.

More interior room and less bulk, can't see...etc. Its like climbing into an 80's Corvette for me. Can't see curbs for poop.

Challenger is the better 'everyday' car I guess, I drove an SRT the other day, sadly an auto...it was blah but you didn't have to use the force to figure out where the median is.

I felt the same way until the grinding. Pretty embarrassing when people watch you take off and then grrrrrrrrind when you shift into second, and then smell burning odor...

Well sir, you have damaged your synchronizer blocker ring by now on the 1-2. What was probably happening is you have been trying to shift faster than the hydraulic clutch can disengage. Its a fairly cheap part but hard to get to. It's worn. As you've noticed it shifts fine while driving normal but when you try to get on it you miss shifts.

The L99 should not have AFM. That's all I can think of. Awesome car now that I tuned it out. No complaints.

Tap shift moved to stick shift by moving it sideways to up shift and down shift.

one of my favorite things about the inside of my car would have to be the super comfortable seats. everyone loves them. the trunk is a bit tight, but not too many complaints about it. the thing i hate the most is the over all interior quality. it could have been about $2000 nicer and i would be happy.

maybe a crisper sound system? idk i'm a music junky and i usually wear $400 headphones when listening to my music.

I'm a big guy (6' 4"/265) and I think the seats are not that comfortable. Not bad but not great. More adjustments would be nice with better side support. The car has many blind spots too.

the daytime running lights. i would like to not have to turn that little knob every time i start the car. sure, i could just leave the lights on all the time, but that is just unnecessary work that the alternator has to do during daytime running (which is 95% of my driving)

For sure, and the quality is crap. I just polished mine for a viewing and the black paint is the worst. I''ve polished professionally over about 200 black cars and this is #3 In the crappiest paint ever, horribly to work with and does not take kindly to any machine polishing. It's got the pliability of rustoleum. Looks perfect now but wow, garbage.

By far my biggest complaint. The L99 should not have AFM. Or, tuning it out should not void warranty! Paint is thinner than any car I've owned. Visibility takes a while (and lots of faith) to get used to.

Dress up the rear side panels. I like the speaker grills that were made here:

There is nothing about this car that I cannot live with. I've even grown accustomed to the blind spots and skip shift. But it would have been nice if Chevy offered a way for the 2010 SS/RS models to use the DRL with the regular headlights at the same time...that would've been awesome. And a shorter 3RD gear would've been nice as well. As well as:
-A high 13 second V6
-More of a distinction between the LS3 and other models
-Door lock/unlock buttons by the power window switches
-More power/torque.
-2.5" performance exhaust option
-An adjustable gauge color control (Mustangs have em)
-Smart key/push to start technology for the 2010

And with that said I feel it necessary to add that the illuminating accent Chevy put on the door was a very nice touch. It really makes the interior nice...and girls LOVE it!! I personally love the stock rims on the SS!! The extra gauges was a nice touch...it's nice to see you trans temp, oil temp, etc. The color options are amazing!! The interior is sexy as hell!! The ride is as comfortable as a mattress, yet it'll bang corners and handle like a beast!!

I have no complaints...this is hands down the best car I've ever owned!! And for what I paid for it, I still can't believe its outside in my parking spot!!
