HUD would've been nice but my finance situation choice was 2ss or 1ss 1le. I think we all am agree which is the better choice for same price

2nd 5th Gen and the only regret I had was buying a coupe in 2010 and not waiting for the convertible in the first place. Not that I didn't like the 2010, it was a blast, we just prefer a convertible.
No regrets buying my 2012 Convertible at all, 14 months and 14,500 miles of permagrin! Including the 2010 make that 44 months and 42,100 miles of permagrin!!!

My only regret was that I didn't do more research on getting a v8 rather than a V6. I didn't even consider getting a V8 as an option, when in actuality I could have gotten one. But I'm extremely happy with my V6, but my next camaro will definintly be a V8.

No regrets.
Great work car, fun road car,economical to operate, will probably recoup most of my 22k "investment" when I sell or trade it in if I keep it clean.

My only regret is not getting the exact color I wanted as cyber grey met. Is the worst color ever for dust and fingerprints lol but I got mine at an unbeatable price so it's all good ;-)

Interesting question that I'm happy to answer. I actually DID regret purchasing this car in the beginning, but after modding it and getting all of the issues ironed out, I'm happy with it.

I'm a difficult customer. I've had a lot of different cars and know what I like. To me, here's where Chevy failed with the bone stock 5th-gen Camaro:
  1. The stock SS exhaust barely has any presence. At least when a stock 5.0 rolls by, you can hear it, and identify what it is.
  2. Paint issues
  3. Lack of basic equipment that is now considered "standard" by today's measure (i.e. automatic temp control, etc.)
  4. Fit and finish issues (i.e. instrument cluster bezel fitment, etc.)
  5. Basic parts issues (it took GM three years to correct a leaking master cylinder reservoir...really??)
Had I gotten a better trade deal, a Boss or Cobra would be sitting in my garage right now. Having my Camaro set up as I do now, in retrospect, making that trade would have been a regret.

Was in the same boat, and made the same decision. No regrets what so ever!

I have owned one of every generation and these are amazing. For the money there is no better enjoyment.

Think of it like this a trip to a large amusement park for two is easily $300.00 for the day if not more. You stand in line next to other crabby people and ride a ride for 90 seconds. in a day you may get 10 rides.

For an average of $600.00 (more or less) a month you drive these awesome cars several times.....so ok screw the math they're just fun to drive and I am 16 all over again!

Well, only 2 really! One is that it wasn't a manual and the second is that I didn't get a ZL1. Other than that, I love mine!

No regrets. The best purchase I ever made. Now I just wish I could win the lottery so I could make more Camaro related purchases.

Ordered my 2SS 2 weeks after the dealerships had their 'unveiling' back in 2009. Picked it up a month later, 2nd one on the streets in my town. Best car I've ever owned. 4 years in and I still get permagrin when I walk up to it. That's why it's called permagrin!
