The only issue I have is that due to the indexing windows (how they drop a little when you open the door) it can be hard to open the door in the winter if the car is frozen over. I know many of you don't drive them in winter, but for those of us who do it can be challenging to open the door if the car is frozen, because the window doesn't want to drop down a bit.

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

Back to your regularly scheduled programming...
I couldn't agree more. In Wisconsin I think they teach people to drive in the left lane whenever possible. It drives me crazy!

I have a '10 and the rim of the steering wheel is shaped all wrong. I love the look, but hate the feel. Same thing on the shift knob. Power door lock switch is in the wrong place. The magnets are not strong enough on those little seat belt straps. I know most or all these things have been addressed on the later models, but I can't figure out how they let them out like this in the first place. I have a buddy with a "12 and his steering wheel feels better, but it's ugly. I would have thought they could have fixed the rim of the steering wheel without putting that ugly thing in there. I was thinking about adding the '12 power door lock switches, but then I read that the entire door panels were different. I haven't verified this yet, but again I would have thought they could have added those switches without changing the entire door panels.

Not really a Camaro annoyance, but I hate it when drivers in general treat the highway as their personal raceway by shooting in and out if traffic or driving at excessive speed creating a dangerous situation for everyone around them.

William R. - any thoughts on this???? there are at least 6 threads on this forum concerning the general dislike (sometimes, outright hatred) of this annoyance!! Is there a computer update in the works to fix this issue??

Thanks!!

when I go to turn on the wipers it feels like there are only Super slow, Slow, and High.
No medium speed for the wipers.

The rubber trim around the door isn't very durable. The rubber started to fray almost immediately when my foot would brush over it getting in and out.

In the Super Slow mode, you can rotate the stalk away from you to get 4 or 5 other sublevels.
