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

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.
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..

To add to the forum...I get annoyed with having to "pair" my phone with the aux bluetooth every time I want to listen to pandora on my phone. I know it saved my phone in memory, but I still have to activate it every time. Kinda stupid.
I'll second this

I very well may be wrong, but didn't they change the font in the speedo in later year models? I see you have a 2013, I have a 2010 and the speedo is damn near unreadable so I have the speed in the dic at all times.

Stop farther back from the light. Happens to me going to work every morning. Little trick for you. watch the crosswalk sign in the direction you are going. It turns white when the light turns green. (At least in Lansing)

I would do anything to be able to disable. I have been driving a stick for over 20 years and do not need it. In its current form all it does is make me mad.

Seems like everyone has a lot of petty gripes. This and that, yadda yadda. We're driving one of the hottest cars on the road...

I believe this is the 1 thread for the annoyances of the camaro? We all know the things about it that make it great.
The point of this thread was to say the petty things that annoy us.

Drivers around me suddenly gets a boost of power and wants to show off their cars when they drive by. Once they get a distance away, back to driving slow. Its like the Gen5 Camaro wills others to press on the gas!
Yesterday, I was about to pass a Prius driver on the freeway and as I got within 4-5 car lengths from him, he peers in his side mirror at me and just took off like a bat-out-of-hell.
What the heck was that I thought to myself? Must have wanted a Camaro but his wife MADE him get a Prius :-)
