1) Make Sport Mode Sporty, by disabling AFM and reducing Torque Management

2) Nav system option

3) Memory seats. Also, let the front part of the seat pan go lower
(it tilts back when all the way down)

4) Forget HUD (had it before and it's useless) Add NAV option instead

Remote start on the 1SS

Make it lighter and/or smaller... but still keep the v8. It should be within 150 pounds of the Mustang.

A nicer interior so Car & Driver will shut up already.

More power than Dodge and Ford... stay #1.

And make it so people can order any of the options... like the old days.

I am not sure much could be done to address this now, but I am 6'2" and I have a sunroof and I barely have enough headroom. Sometimes I can feel my hair bumping the roof. If the sunroof was wider then it wouldn't be an issue. In my 4th gen, the t-tops add alot of extra headroom, and my firebird is a much lower car than the Camaro. I am used to it though, and I am glad that I can fit, b/c that would be a major bummer to be like 6'4" or taller and not be able to drive the Camaro. I've heard the non sunroof car gives an extra inch or so, but I have to have a sunroof in my ride, I love the extra light and airflow in the warmer months.

As others have said, I'd like to see:

GM licensed turbo/supercharger kit for V6
memory seats
cooled seats
user defined multi-colored lighting for ambient lighting, gauges, stereo, etc...
HD radio with itunes tagging
touch screen Nav
'10 CGM 2LT/RS M6 Camaro - w/ Corsa Cat-Back Exhaust & HUD Upgrade
'96 Black WS6 TA - M6 Conv, Pro 5.0, Baer Track kit, Corsa Cat-back
'11 Silver Regal Turbo - 6 speed

Thanks for the opportunity to have some input.

Sorry to be redundant, but there have been some great suggestions that I'll chime in on. I figure that the more you hear it, the more likely that the suggestions will be taken into consideration.

I have a 2SS, so I'm pretty damn happy with that bad boy. With that said, the interior lighting definately needs to be enhanced. It's like a cave in there at night! Floor lighting, lights that point down on the rear view mirror and lighting in the rear seat area would be a great start. I also like the idea of enhancing the lighting on the dash mentioned by bond2.

Bottom line: keep it a few steps ahead of the competition and sales will stay up in the stratosphere where they are now....

More comfortable steering wheel

Ambient lighting across dash

Jetstream Blue

Red interior option

Cut the weight down

That's all I can think of.

Oh, and Z/28.

I must say that every time I get into my Camaro I am on cloud nine. Though I do have a few suggestions that would improve my experience greatly (if's that is possible!)

1. Please stop forcing me to go from 1st to 4th gear shifting on the SS manual transmission. That is very irritating and dangerous.

2. Memory Seats. I am 5' 3" and my husband is 6' 1". So it's a pain for me every time he drives it.

3. Spare Tire.

4. T-Tops.

5. Expandable sun visors.

6. Larger stereo face with LCD display and intergrated GPS.

7. USB port in every stereo.

First, awesome car. I knew I was buying a Camaro when I bought this car but had no idea that is was actually buying this great beast of an automobile. This car is one of the funnest cars I've driven. I love this car and it goes without saying GM has done a great job.

As for improvements, most of them have been mentioned but I'll reiterate:
1. Memory seats
2. Push button start (like on the Vettes and Caddys)
3. Keyless entry (like on the Vettes and Caddys)
4. Height adjustment on passenger seat
5. Auto dimming and heating on passenger side mirror
6. LEDs for every bulb possible (depending on feasibility)

Thanks for doing this garfin.

I think everyone would agree to this...PLEASE give us the OPTION to have the Concept INTERIOR, STEERING WHEEL, GAUGES, and the ultra thin SIDE VIEW MIRRORS, EXHAUST!, FUEL DOORS, the very WIDE 22'' WHEELS! AND THE PEARLESCENT PAINT JOB...

ONE thing that will make a SIGNIFICANT difference:

A REAL GPS SCREEN/DISPLAY.... with better iPhone connectivity..

Last but not least... Customer-loyalty trade in or buy incentive for current Camaro owners

I agree with most of the above. Don't mess with the identity of the car and improve the handling and refinements to details. Do some of the corvette stuff that won't significantly increase cost. It's a great car that could be awesome with a few thoughtful touches.

1. Upgraded suspension package available through GMPP and as a factory option.

2. A lighter Z/28 with a base price that starts with a "3".

3. Exhaust could be more aggressive.

4. "SS" badging on the grille vs. bowtie.

5. Pass along thanks for a great car.

There are only a few things that I would like to be changed on future Camaros:
-lighted homelink buttons
-power passenger seat that raises so short passengers can see
-memory seats and mirrors
-folding mirrors
-bigger visors with lighting that can actually block the sun
-cup holders moved so I can comfortable shift in a manual
-a simpler mechanism to slide the front seats for rear seat access--one lever that both folds and slides

I have a manual 2SS and absolutely love it. Aside from adding more power which the Z/28 will address, my only two suggestions would be:

1. Navigation: add a real touch-screen navigation. Although OnStar offers it through their service, this is not a long term solution for most owners. It would not help us if we decide to discontinue Onstar nor is it cost effective for an owner to keep their service just for the navigation feature.

Just from a competition and market share standpoint, the mustang offers this in both the GT and GT500 so that could be a deal breaker for a present Mustang owner or someone debating between the two models.

2. Grill: Start making the Heritage Grill the standard on the SS or performance models. Not only is the stock grill cheap looking, but there isn't enough differentiation between the SS and non-SS models.

Just my $.02.

some of these suggestions make me kind of glad i haven't gotten my car just yet... =D


1. system/navigation center console
2. after burn tail light effects (like the concept camaro tail lights)
3. optional darker rims, maybe gunmetal and black chrome
4. black interior trim (like the black camaro concept)
5. other interior lighting options
6. more aggressive sounding exhaust
7. functional hood slot for ss model

other than than, the car is flawless.

2010 Black Camaro 2SS w/ RS package.... da woiks!

Please make LeMans Blue available. I know it is not going to be exactly the same formula, but PLEASE, make a blue simular to LeMans Blue. The Aqua Blue Metallic was not the same, and looked like crap in shady or low-light conditions. Leave the pearl effect out of the equation, guys!

- Hide away headlights

  1. Rear view camera and/or auto tilting side view mirrors (tilt down to see curbs) when reverse is engaged
  2. Bowtie delete (add big chrome SS emblems instead)
  3. a "3SS" option with factory installed Shorty Headers, CAI, and Sport Exhaust, maybe a cam (for cheap, we already pay an above average premium for the SS level)
  4. Raise the roof 1.5 inches... how many times do car makers bring out a highly stylized concept car that is watered down in production? But this time GM was too true to the concept with the chopped top being a little too chopped (ironic, huh)
  5. Track pack type suspension option
  6. ABL across front dash
  7. Spare tire
  8. 'one touch' seat flip and slide forward (for the rare occasions when somebody is in the back and needs to get out)
  9. HID or LED fog lights that work with RS HIDs
  10. Someplace convenient for my Garmin Nuvi
  11. Lighted Homelink buttons
  12. 'targeted focus' led interior/map lights
Take it or leave it: HUD, Nav, memory seats, folding mirrors, etc... interior materials seem ok to me, I guess I'm not fondling the dash like other people?

P.S. Thanks for the great car - so far!
