Shifting with a soda pop in the cup holder can be a PITA. Its just not comfortable.

You're not alone, having a cup in the holder makes you adjust your arm to shift.

I agree. Those are only good for once you hit the road in high gear. Other than that, its a hassle if you are trying to play a bit. WS6 had one that spun off the dash, and one built into the passenger door. Wish there was one somewhere else.

I have to put it In the rear cup holder and when there's more than one drink its ridiculously uncomfortable. I saw a company made a cup holder delete so u could install switches if you needed them for mods and what not and I couldn't believe it eliminated the rear cup holder. Might as well get rid of both at that point because I only use the front one if a passenger opened a drink before I told them it makes it a PITA to shift

Yeah, pain in the rear to shift. You could tell who ever thought of the placement of these cupholders never drove a stick.

If you never eat or drink in your Camaro it's not a problem either.

Try the 12 oz size instead of the half gallon size and it could make a difference, haha JK

My arm will clear a CAN of soda... or pop... or soda pop... if it's in the front holder, since it's lower. I also found that if I have a 20oz bottle of something (with cap firmly in place), I can prop it against the passenger side of the center console using the handle that adjusts the front/back movement of the passenger seat to hold it in place. Still easily reachable from the driver seat and stays put pretty well. If it were to ever come loose during a sudden move it would just roll around on the passenger floor and not get into the pedals. That's why I never put it on the driver side. Other than that, yeah, I make the wife hold the drinks.

When I had my Solstice GXP, owners complained about the cupholders too.

When cupholders are the biggest complaint, the car maker did something right.

And when it's an inconvenience to have a cup of something and drive, pull over and drink the damn drink. That's just common sense. And yes, my fluid intake is actually greater than yours, thanks for asking, lol

I have two complaints and one, the trunk space I was aware of. So you are right; GM did a great job. I'll take my big gulp and manuever my arm around the stinking drink and be merry hahaha.

No big deal once I got used to it. I have a water bottle in the front drink holder all the time because I keep change in the other cup holder. I don't even notice the drink being in the way. Give it some time and I bet you all will get used to it too. I've had my SS since 2009 and it took a good year to get used to it.
