This sucks. I am taking mine back and asking for a refund!!!! Mine, knock on wood has been great. 1300 miles and no problem other than the recall that was fixed the day the public found out and they gave us a $100 service voucher. The public loves it and people are still taking pictures of it in traffic. It is a celebrity anywhere we go. IBM 2SS Auto.

Almost happened again today, but after several times pushing the trunk release on the remote it opened. Tried it about 20 more times, no problem. Sprayed a bit of silcone spray on the lock/catch mechanism. (BTW there is no "key entry" for the trunk, only electromechanical). Will keep an eye on it and report back to you and if necessary the dealer (but have a feeling its one of those things where it will never happen at the dealer).
That was happening to the dealer car at the dealership I am getting my Camaro from. All they had to do is a small adjustment to the trunk latch.

It doesn't matter how good something is, there are always going to be spoiled children expecting the entire world to revolve around them, and that every little issue they hear bout is gospel and WILL happen to them and someone is going to wipe their nose for them. Sheesh! Grow a pair already.

Like owner sites for any vehicle, we'll end up with a full section listing recalls and glitches with the cars. It's bound to happen.. especially with a fresh new model!

Considering also that this really is a new car. Not just a revamp like Ford did with the Mustang. But everything's new! So I really wouldn't be suprised if it took a bit to work out the kinks.

This will be my 5th new car and none of them have been "bug free". Any car built at any time can have a problum. Most will have somekind of problum. Most will be small and no big deal in my mind. This is a mechine and mechines break. This car was also built by people, people are not perfect. GM has and will, IMO, do whatever they can to give us the best car that they can.

Thanks Top, as I thought these are minor adjustment issues.

question...have you checked the weatherstripping? That used to happen all the time with my mustang...With the weather we have been having it tends to get sticky and holds down the lid and it locks again before raising up. Try putting a little electricians lube or Vasoline on the weatherstripping...not so much that whatever your putting in the trunk is going to get covered in it and then try it again...

the latch or latch strike itself should be adjustable

I know we're all Camaro entusiasts here but my THRILL at grabbing this puppy has long gone. I'll be test driving this week (Mustangs, Chargers, 300z's, and 1-2 others and if I find a car that fits me, I'm buying it and driving it to my dealer and demanding my money back. (Let me know if anyone wants pics)
See ya. Good luck finding a new 300Z.

Yes, there is a safety feature to prevent the window from going up when something is blocking it. 350z's (mine included) had the exact same problem that you are describing with the window. What happens is you use the auto-up feature and the window goes up, then comes back down half way. If you don't use the auto-up feature and just hold the button till the window goes up, it stays there. Does that sound about right for what you're experiencing? With the 350z's this happened because the window motor didn't know anymore what all the way up actually was. Usually you could recalibrate the motor by rolling the window up then holding the button for 5 seconds, but if the safety let-down feature wasn't working (which it seems yours isn't) it usually means the sensor in the window motor is bad and the whole motor would be replaced. People who had this issue usually experienced it within the first 100 miles of ownership.

As far as the trunk, I'm sure the latch is out of adjustment, should be an easy 2-minute fix.

Yes, its seems like whats highlighted is what's happening. I agree the trunk latch is probably an adjustment issue.
I'll be taking it to the dealer and have them look into these things and report back.

What gives with the whiners? Jeez, let's ditch the whole thing because the battery cable is too close to the starter on the first 2000 cars.

If someone is so impatient that they don't want to wait for QC to be complete, they don't need a Camaro- a Mustang would suit them better because it's built and on the lot, where they can pick it apart for errors and problems on the spot. There is no such thing as a perfect car, even ones on the Ford, Nissan or Lambo lots.

First, sorry you are having any issues.

You didn't mention that you tried to open the trunk from the outside lifting up while you push the button on the remote.

The trunk has a pop up spring. All trunks have some type of spring, but the 4-bar system on the Camaro has one that pushes the trunk open when it is un-latched. It sounds as if the latch is popping (the noise you hear) but the trunk isn't lifting off the seals. The suggestion that the trunk may be sticking on the seal is also something to check.

The glass issue may just simply be the reflash. If you have one of the early cars, it is possible that the reflash wan't done or done correctly. I know it sounds strange, but there is a module that controls the windows and that module has software.

Both concerns should be easy to fix and shouldn't cause any concerns after a trip to the dealer.

And yes, there is a auto reverse in all express up windows that reverses the glass when it contacts an obstruction. I forget the force required, but it shouldn't be anywhere near what would take your hand off.

Is there any difference between daytime (heat) and night time (cooled down) on the trunk opening? There may be something just too tight and when the metal expands in the heat it binds up.

Take it to the dealer - that is what the warranty is for and you have a brand new Camaro that should work right - don't try to fix it yourself - make an appointment.

Oh no, mine gets dust on it when I take it for a drive!

That really ticks me off. I guess I had better take her back!

NOT!

Folks, issues arise. Guaranteed to happen with any car. But its counter productive to be at any extreme with this. When something comes up, telling people to just "suck it up" is about as useless as those who say "OMG WTF! GM SUCKS!!1!" (didn't happen in this thread ... yet).

Mention problem, find source, execute solution, move on. That should be the model for threads like this.
