Don't push the switch down all the way.. There is a place if you push slowly that there is a slight catch in it. If you go past that it will go into auto down. Pressing too hard or too fast you usually go past it without knowing...

My only annoyance is when the weather is bad I can't put the top down...

Hey man I know exactly what you mean about the window, it's because the window motor gets too hot and seizes, causing the window to go back down unless you physically HOLD the button up. If you're still under warranty just tell them to replace the motor, I had both of mine replaced and the problem was solved. As for the ice/lights thing I agree it is annoying, but just hit the switch on the blinker (like how you would normally scroll from speed to trip a/b, mileage, etc) and it will go away.

This I know. Didn't want to sound like an idiot.... Maybe I am. But for some reason I can never just push it down a little. I always end up clicking it down past the first click.

I know it's hard to train yourself especially if you have had several cars that didn't have the auto down feature, it's a force of habit to just push the button all the way down. I like the feature myself and wish my Saturn Vue had it on all the windows along with the auto up feature. I get annoyed at it because it won't do it automatically.

That's the problem. I constantly switch from my beater (94 eagle talon) to the camaro. Everything is different. Including the clutch. But it's always fun getting back into the camaro

My biggest annoyance is the rear speaker setup.
I had to stuff microfiber cloth in there to keep the deck from rattling at even low volumes. It would have been nice if they were easier to access.

Seriously, maybe get a prius, I hear they run forever with no reported issues!

Maybe the Camaro isn't perfect but really...............

My annoying stuff with the Camaro is mainly Mylink and its bugs......
Like when it decides not to take orders from you, or doesn't want to link to pandora, or it hates your phone.
Mylink in general needs an update......
Other than that everything is solid in my car, I don't hear chirps, or squeaks, even with a sunroof opt. on my car. I love it.

I have a 2010 Camaro. Plug in a USB memory stick with some music.
The radio decides to index everything and jumble up all your music so it plays alphabetically from within all the folders. This is really annoying if you have albums that are meant to be listened to start to end (Pink Floyd Dark side of the moon). You can use the radio controls to navigate to the folder and play it that way, but what a hassle.

Now if I burn the files to CD, it plays like my kenwood DNX 7120 does in the other car and how I want it.

By the way, last time I was at the dealer they said they looked for stuff to update.

Oh and is there ever going to be an option for a glovebox light, and sunglass holder?

Now this is a feature I really like. On the malibu forum I was on a couple of years ago there were people modifying their wiring somehow to make it do this, one pass.

William R. - this needs serious attention. There are multiple threads dedicated to this in the transmission section of the forum. Most dealers are reporting the shifting condition as "normal".

2. Constantly having to fiddle with the climate controls. I want to "set it and forget it". Automatic climate control should be at least an option in 2013.

3. Reaching WAY back to get my seatbelt every day, scratching the heck out of my door panel with my watch/ring. And in general, too much hard plastic throughout the interior, which scratches too easily.
I understand your concern Eich,

Thank you for that information! I will make sure that information gets in the right place. If you are experiencing these issues and want the vehicle in for an official diagnosis, please let me know and feel free to send a private message with your name, VIN number, mileage, and zip code.

My issue is when you are running out of gas. When you go check your DIC to see how many miles you have til you are empty, it just says "Low Fuel Range". I know im low on fuel. Tell me how many miles I have

Well my warranty expired:( and I do hit menu or the button on the end in, but if I am driving fast around a turn in "M" mode, I don't want to find that button..
