Mr William could you make a post to inform All OF C5 for the official diagnosis?

Hateful people. I've been cut off, tailgated, and ran up on (like while I'm going through a 4 way stop) more than any other car I've owned.

Active fuel management. At least give us the option of being able to turn it off if we wanted to.

Having to do a fuse pull. We shouldn't need to have to reset the octane table, this should be done automatically.

The paint could be better quality, this is a pretty common gripe. I've seen much lesser quality cars with better paint jobs.

The leather could be better quality as well.

That's about it. These are all pretty common problems and concerns that I've read on this board a couple of times and should be addressed in the newest model. Other then that, I think the car is amazing and it has no comparison on the road.

Another annoyance is my Boston acoustic system. To pay money for an upgraded system that's shotty is kinda dumb. Even with the bass turn down the sub distorts. Already had it replaced once under warranty.

I hate when the USB has to index and how it is in the center console and not under the dash. And I hate when my blue tooth disconnects over and over again.

happens ALL the time here. I especially try to avoid making eye contact at a light with people because they always want to race.

Mine grinds at the 1-2 shift as well, although it does not matter what RPM it is it still grinds, usually within the first 5 minutes of starting the car for the first time of the day or after it has been sitting for several hours.

Those legendary Camaro blind spots.....but then those have been a Camaro trademark since day one, so I'm not sure it would qualify as an "annoyance".....

the lever/latch to tilt the driver and passenger seat forward so someone can get in the back seat is in the worst place!!!

there is no room to fit your arm between the seat and the pillar. horrible design.

i have to climb all the way inside the car on my knees and reach around through the middle.

Only thing that annoys me about the car is the cup holders. Hard to shift with a Large cup of anything there.

[QUOTE=Eich;6425252]1. NUMBER 1: 2nd GEAR GRIND AT HIGH RPM SHIFTS ON THE M6. There is NO EXCUSE FOR A PERFORMANCE CAR TO HAVE THIS ISSUE.

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".

I complained to my dealer about this they pulled the tranny and fixed it!! Never shifted soooo gooood

I thought mine was distorting as well. Dealer replaced rear speakers once didn't fix it. What it was was the back dash and the metal bracing the rear speakers were mounted in was vibrating and rattling. the dealer tightened it up. Then I took a tie down wrapped it around the magnets of the rear speakers tightened it, was much better.

I gotta seriously call BS on this one... lol... a Prius going like a bat out of hell....

I was cruising down to the Texas Camaro Revolution, and some punker chick in a prius was hugging the hell out of the left lane on a three lane interstate... Had that POS wound up tight.... She would back off, then speed up to block anyone trying to go around on the right....

I never downshifted, and barely touched the gas and went right around her... she then proceeded to flip me off.... I laughed... and cruised on....I despise left lane trash... either drive or move the hell over... and even if you think you're moving, if someone comes up behind you, move the hell over anyway... It's the courteous thing to do.... In Texas, if it's a load of painters in an old beater truck, left lane... an SUV with five kids... Left lane... texting... left lane..... typing on the iPad, (seen it two or three times) left lane.... kicked back in the I'm cool cruising around looking cool, talking on the phone.... left lane.... reading (insert some form of paper or electronic device) left lane....

These are generalizations.... based on what I see all too often...

Back to your regularly scheduled programming...
