This reminds me of when I had the GMC Envoy. The first year, it had an 18gal tank. People complained it was too small, and the next year they made it a 25gal tank!

One of the best executed cars I have owned. Perfect except for:

- driver HSA disable
- 3.73 or 3.91 rear axle ratio standard or option on SS or SS w/LS3/MT.
- personally I would rather have equal sized tires all around; more of the 1LE in the SS

Clean the glass and apply a sealant.

I have owned a bunch of convertibles over the years and so far not one bird has ever hit the interior while the top has been down.

I hope I didn't just jinx myself

The cup holder in a ls3 is in an awful spot, should be on the side. The magnetic buttons for the seat belt strap are just completly stupid, just a plain strap would be fine. Still have a hard time with unlock button, just cant believe they put it there, cant get used to it. I have a 2010, not a big fan of the steering wheel blocking the tach, i like to put wheel down as low as it can go. I have had 4 camaro's and unfortunatly in 45 years they couldnt solve the "cock pit sounds like ww3" issue. My biggest complaint with every camaro ive owned is the fact they all rattle. I guess that the secret to making an enexpensive race car, all engine and cut corners on interior. I can live with that. I guess if they fixed that it wouold become a corvette lol.

I totally agree with the steering wheel blocking the tachometer. I too drive iwth the steering wheel as low as possible. Thank god for the digital speedo option.

One thing that really bothers me, if I'm driving at a normal speed (25mph) and give it a quick push of 3/4 throttle and release...my car doesn't move. Or if I floor it it takes a while to drop gears then winds up and goes. Or if I stop before a corner and wanna put my car sideways, it shifts too quickly into 2nd gear so its hard to do.

In my 2000 camaro, none of this was an issue. I could 3/4 throttle quick and I'd peel wheels!!! or going around a corner, even normal acceleration would probably throw my ass end out.

Another interior problem is the sunroof has express open...but not express close. The toggle switch clicks during the return as if it were going to express close but it doesn't.

Auto windows make it a pain to clean the glass

My biggest annoyances are:

winter
cats
rocks in the road

Come to think of it, that's never happened to me either, and I drove convertibles for 25 years...never happened while driving that is
