Power Seat on Passenger side

My wife said there needs to be power adjustments on the passenger side. To raise the seat up.

The seats in my SS do that - I can have both on or just the back...

Is that a difference with the LT vs SS?? Seems odd..

Two issues I have with the camaro one of which I can partially correct and the other I cannot at this time:

1. Better use or use in general of sound dampening throughout the car. I added my own in the trunk and can add it relatively easy under the seat. The rest however I dont want to have to remove my interior.
2. The oft echoed passender seat issue. Some way to at least raise and lower the seat would be great.

Cheers

Sound dampening? Did you install a loud exhaust or something? The Camaro has the least amount of road noise of any car I have driven, just sayin

Dragoneye, I would pay $1000 for that option. I usually have my hands full as I get in the car, and the keys are always in the wrong pocket for the free hand. Plus, bucket seats, an expanding belly and blue jeans make a bad combo for diggin keys outa yer poket.
When I say keyless, I mean just have the keys in the car somewhere and you push a button. My Beemer has pushbutton start but I still have to insert the key.

I've always bought GM and this is my second Camaro(I had a '96 before we had kids)...WHOOT!! For the record this was my 40th birthday present and if I may quote a movie-sort of..."This car completes me." That said here we go...

If you're listening... here's my 2 cents-perhaps even full dollar (some repeats from others just to drive the point home):

1-Must illuminate the middle homelink button as a reference at night(no need to light them all up)
2-Power passenger seat with height adjustment
3-Breakaway mirrors/folding mirrors
4-Rear seatbelt height adjustment clips(like my '08 Impala)...some of us do have kids and they do sit back there...it's an issue of safety, not performance
5-?Deepen the wells on the cup holders? so they don't interfere as much with the shifter?
6-Navigation, Navigation, Navigation...Onstar has some great safety features, but truthfully...the nav option with them is a pain in the neck to use and I have had times where I was sent to the wrong place
7-Instant fuel economy on the DIC
8-Top mounted fuel door like Bumblbee/Leno's car as an option or part of the RS package...it just looks a lot more sporty/unique to me
9-Tap shift on the column not the wheel...you simply can't shift when turning the wheel the way it is now
10-Steering wheel audio controls-They should be placed in order of most used in the best ergonomic position ie)outermost position:
a)Seek up/down-all the way to the right-Have the one wheel work like this...push it and the wheel seeks normally to the next chanel...push the wheel again and now it cycles through the presets(ie)a three mode wheel like the mouse wheel on your computer
b)Volume behind the wheel like the '08 Impala
c)Source button in the middle top
d)Cycle through favoites/programmed channel blocks(ie-fav1 fav2 fav3 etc) middle lower button
e)get me help for my OCD compulsion with audio controls
11-PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE put a button on the autodimming feature so we can disable it...some of us are colorblind(more than you would think) and it is very difficult to see at night with the mirrors dimmed...This is another safety issue, not just a comfort/performance issue.
12-Offer some kind of front license plate holder that won't damage my paint for those of us that live in a state which mandates front license plates and are actually willing to comply with this law.
13-The rear corner blind spots...I don't know what can be done here but any improvement would be welcomed
14-This will sound (no pun intended) dumb, but is there a way to make the horn sound more aggressive...I feel like Tinker Bell throwing a fairy fit when I have to use the horn
15-The interior light is too bright for it's positional placement in the vehicle...others have already made great suggestions...
16-Please add a holder for the fuel cap so it doesn't sit on the paint at the pumps
17-Is there a way to widen the opening into the trunk space to match the width of the actual trunk door for those of us that golf, have strollers etc.
18-Memory sideview mirrors would be amazing
19-Integrated hard drive for the radio as an option so I don't have to keep bringing my Ipod/thumb drive with me
20-Just curious...why is the traction control button so huge? Maybe relocate that and add a secondary power port?
21-My wife would really like a light on the passenger side mirror
22-My 5 year old son would like the car to actually transform into Bumblebee and have functional cannons and a real voice.(I did buy the TFE afterall)
23-My 7 year old daughter would like to see pink, purple and rainbows offered as standard color paint options.

Thanks for your time.
-Glen

I just love my 2SS,
if i were king, i would...
have electric adjustable passenger seat
give the boston acoustic stereo the sub woofers std. on the 2ss( needs it)
heads up display would be nice.

move the DIC controls to the steering wheel where they are more easily accessible.
remove the back seats, use the space for trunk/speaker room, no one sits back there anyway.

thank you.

Unlike alot of these suggestions, I think I will try to keep mine reasonable and doable with the least cost and redesign of the entire car.

1. All models should come Standard with rear backup sensors With a distance and direction readout incorporated in the rear package shelf. the sensors should be in the top of the diffuser also, so there are no dots in the bumper cover.

2. The radio face needs to not scratch so easily, just wiping the dust off with your finger will put scratches in it..

3. Seat height adjustment for those that want and need it.

4. Fix the Whistling from the side mirrors, it is very annoying when you are driving with the windows down between 25 and 45 MPH.

I would like to see the tachometer display redone so I can actually read it with a little more accuracy. The tach is probably accurate to +/- 0.1%, but the needle is so fat I might be able to estimate my engine speed to the nearest 100 rpm. Each little mark is 250 rpm and the needle is as wide as the distance between 2 marks.

Or at least make rpm available on the DIC.

Its a small thing and wouldn't cost GM much. Hey, maybe there is a DIY on shaving down the tach needle.

Quick and simple-
passenger adjustable seat, at least manual
better all around interior lighting
smoother 6sp manual
all though good an even better sounding exhaust system (Borla S like)

Well after new car delivery of 22 GM cars and trucks and as many used GM products in 41 years of driving ( now estimated at over 1,000,000 miles) my list is short.

1) iritated by the overhead light...it has to dim before I can see the Home Link buttons AT DUSK.
2) The Home Link buttons are flush, need too much pressure, need LED in dark.
3) Gas cap Hook... That should not have happened!
4) Wallet/ sunglass storage with Center gauges.
5) Passenger seat....that deletion was not expected!
6) Make the USB work without all the gliches....
7) Use the Japanese market rear facia.
8) Marina Blue
9) No drill front front plate mount

AND number 10 with a drum role please.......

Make the RS available without SUMMER ONLY tires.

I wish there was a handle inside the trunk so that I could close the trunk without touching the paint/emblem and getting finger prints all over it.

Terrific car! Having said that...
the driver seat needs to be more adjustable...the height adjust is too limited
beter lighting in the footwells and from mirror
Push-to-start
remote access/keyless entry like the Infiniti G37
supercharger
built-in nav screen

Drilled Rotors

I second that!
And 2SS/RS owners should be offered a Z/28 or Supercharged model at a discount (owner loyalty or something)

PERFORMANCE IS AWESOME
DRILLED ROTORS ON THE 2SS MODEL WOULD BE GREAT, I JUST COMPLETED PUTTING DRILLED ROTORS ON MY CAR AND THE LOOK IS MUCH BETTER.

Z28 FOR SURE BUT LOW PRODUCTION #'S PLEASE

The ability to program which lights are your DRLs.

Control on which lights you want auto on at night... headlights and fogs.

Multi color option dash lights

I Second these....#3 not so important to me personally but would be nice. The "SS" badging is a great idea-(I think they are currently understated). Hideaway headlights would be very cool!! Painted stripes is what I thought I was getting when I placed the order. (a bit bummed out by this, what I got was "Decals" not Rally Stripes, in my opinion). Love the
car though!

3) be able to record CD's into the memory like my wifes 2010 EQ...
4) Funtional Hood scoop.
5) Hide away head lights
6) ABL in front of dash as well
7) Nav
8) discount for current 2010 owners.
9) Optional painted on ralley strips
10) SS badging in the front and rear instead of the bowie's " only for SS models"

Once again thanks for letting us the camaro family express our thoughts

God Bless and thanks for everything you do..

I like having the rear backup sensors, but the radio needs to automatically lower the music volume or mute when the sensors begin to beep.

Wow, I thought all the Camaros were the same with the heated seats...you're lucky Tessa...
My whole seat gets hot and sometimes I just want the heat on my back only...
