I have a '13 2ss RS Camaro that is not my daily driver. I drive the Camaro for fun or when it is going to be nice out. I also have a 2012 Volt I use for daily commutes, and a winter beater for when its really crappy out.

Daily driver here. Made it through the first Minnesota winter with only a few minor quirks but that was more my learning curve for a RWD vs. front than the car. Winter tires are a MUST though. Noticed a huge difference in handling in the snow right away.

DD here unless there is snow on the ground then, it's the Wife's AWD MTX. Due to the cold weather, the P-Zero's were almost un-driveable below 32 degrees (hard as rocks). I replaced them with General G-Max All Season Radials and now have no troubles.

My SS is my dd, unless there is snow on the ground.

I've driven it in minus 30 Celsius degrees weather (I live in Calgary, Canada) with the stock P-Zero with no problem at all as long as you are careful. If there is snow covered roads, I usually use public transit, im not worry about me driving my car, I do get more worry about other people not knowing how to drive in the snow and wrecking my baby even if i got winter tires. When I got it, I got 3M protection on hood bumper and side mirrors (to avoid rockchipping during winter and spring seasons) and once a year I take it for a "Krown" application (to avoid rust due to salt) that way, i can enjoy the SS with peace of mind !

Congratz! You'll enjoy your new ride!

Used to daily it. I bought a Scion after I put around 20k on the Camaro. It rides better and gets way better milage. The suspension + exhaust on the Camaro can get tiring sometimes.

Ok, I'm in Alabama, so I almost don't count, but I drive mine every day and enjoy it. I'd say enjoy yours every day that you can.

Not my DD

I take mine on "research expeditions" on sunny days and back country roads when most folks are working or sleeping. Decided this would be my part time job after retirement. Love the car and not much chance I'll get tired of it this way.

With the stock LS 245/55/R18 tires, the car performs alot better in imperfect conditions than I thought. Coming from a 02 Firebird v6, I thought the Camaro would be alot worse with traction due to the huge power difference. Not true (with traction control on anyway)
