WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 2LT & THE 2SS PASSENGER POWER SEAT ?

Arenít the 2LT & the 2SS supposed to bring dual power seat?
Even though I havenít receive my car yet, I was able to check the window sticker for it on line since is already built. To my surprise it showed only one power seat for the driver and a manual seat for the passenger.

GM specs shows dual power seats for these trim choices if Iím not mistaken.

Are we getting suckered out of a power seat or what?

Almost positive none of the 2010 Camaros have any up/down adjustment on the passenger seat just a forward/back.

Its design to ease entry into the rear seat. Trust me my 04 GTO had a power pass seat and it was a PITA waiting for the slow ass seat to move enough to get in. Then the same thing when you were getting out plus the pass had to stand there and hit the button for you to get out.

There is a way to have a four way adjustable that also slides you know..

The passenger seat has power tilt, but manual front-to-back sliding.

Both seats have a lever on the back to make the seat hinge forward should you decide to cram someone into the back seat...

I'll be cramming my daughter back there. Soon to be two daughters... but she's still young enough to fit back there!

The official specs, http://www.chevrolet.com/vehicles/20...ro/features.do says all level come with power pass seat standard. Which adjustments are power and which are manual I don't know. I haven't looked at the passenger seat yet

Looks like they gave me the remote engine start in place of the power passenger seat I guess.

Does it come standard with the remote engine start?

Remote starter is standard on all auto transmissions, not manual.

My wife complains that the passenger seat is too low to the floor, so i looked in the manual and it says you can raise and lower the seat with a manual handle that is on the outside of the seat near the recline button. It even shows a picture of the handle. It says to pump the handle to reach desired height. So I go out to the car to raise the seat for her, but no handle is there!! You can't raise the height of the passenger seat even though the manual says you can?? What am I missing here??? My wife is short and almost needs a pillow to see over the dash and I can't raise the seat height??

More than likely they did a copy/paste job from another car's manual. There are several things in the Camaro manual that are just wrong.

The pass seat has a manual handle for slide forward/back and a power recline. No other adjustments. My wife hates it.

I read the same thing...went to look and nope, nothing there!

I love this car but the passenger seat (not being power) is BS! For the cost of this car I jsut can't see why they couldn't have included it!

Talked to a guy Friday night with a Z06 and he said that his passenger seat is also manual...so maybe it's a Chevy thing? You'd think on a $70K car they'd include it there but no...Chevy felt it wasn't needed!

Cool

This was not a mistake by the general (or O). It was intentional. If you go back to some of the stories about the equipment that would come with the car, GM originally said it would have dual power seats. My guess GM cut this for a couple of reasons.

Reduced weight.
Reduced cost which allowed gm to keep the price of the car down
gm wants to give the next generation of buyers a reason to buy the car with more stuff on it.

There is a thread on this site asking what people would like to see on the 2011 car. HUD was one. GPS was another. These items will eventually be added, but the price of the car will go up accordingly.

Just my 2 cents.

Ditto on the passenger seat height adjustment. My wife can hardly see over the dash.
Anyone come up with a Mod? Maybe spacers under the seat to rail rear bolts?
