noisy motor/vibration/road tire noise

Took delivery last monday on our 1lt/rs rjt Camaro with a V-6 Auto.. I think motor is noisy and vibrates too much. Do not feel or hear inside car. Is this normal? Is there a break in time and motor will quiet down? Also road noise is terrible. Maybe the crummy Pirelli tires. A really poor choice for tires. Exhaust sound is really crappy when I get on it. Have 200 miles 1/2 intown 1/2 hwy. mpg 19. also crummy. Any comments or input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Chuck

Many people have said the exhaust sound improves with driving. Mine did somewhere around 1000miles. Your mileage sound really off I have the LS3 and I get high 18mpg almost all city. I saw people with the 6 saying they were in the 20 to 30mpg range.

Your car is just like mine...I have a 2LT/RS and it randomly would vibrate and the engine did seem loud and when i did step on the gas it didnt sound good at all and it still doesnt but it has improved. I have about 2,500 miles on it and my car doesnt vibrate as much but i do hear a clunky noise every time i take a turn like something is loose or something...anyone know what that might be? serms like its coming from the wheel area or something...

Check your CV joints and go to a dealer as soon as you can.

Thanks for the response! We are going to give it a little more time/miles before taking back to dealer for any issues or adjustments. I was at my dealer today and checked out an SS (Camaro). Sounded great idling and when blipping the throttle. The motor was not near as noisy as the 6 cylinder and at idle was not vibrating as much as the 6 cylinders. Other issue that just surfaced is the the car pulls to the left no matter if your in the left, center ot right lane(intestate I-75). Will take in soon.

DI engines do make more idle noise but I never hear it in gear as the engine has a mean growl with the gas pedal down.

I do like the car just trying to get some input so I can see if there is anything that could be an issue down the road. The car is gorgeous!
Just ordered an Equinox 1-LT yesterday. Also have Impala and Firebird and Envoy with no issues.
