In short, it's not one of the older models you have a problem with, so I really don't know why you keep bringing that up. It doesn't fit this car.

The 2010 Camaro is a very good car, outside and inside. GM has to be very careful that they don't screw it up by "improving" it into something that sucks.
Seriously, is it too much to ask for modern levels of refinement in a muscle car in the year 2010?

If it is then once the purists who are buying this car strictly on their childhood dreams or living their mid-life crisis as Camaro enthusiasts dry up, the car will not appeal to the general public as much.

I would place a good bet that around 75% of 2010 Camaro owners would have bought one if it had cardboard for the interior. For sure 100% of the first 20,000 built went to die-hard enthusiasts with no reguard for modern refinement. Or else they would not have spent $3-7k over sticker for them as most did.

Lol. I seriously don't even know what you are talking about. You make it sound like the car doesn't have A/C.

very true.... for a muscle car it is quieter, handles better, and is faster than a whole lot of cars out there.... those things initially surprised me about the car.... as I said, I know improvements will be made, however coming from a 93 vette, the total package of this car is the improvement..... but, that's just me....

I am sorry but I can't take a guy who thinks the 1st and 2nd gen models were junk, seriously. I will call it even on the 3rd and 4th gens. I wasn't a big fan of those cars, but the first 2 generations were revolutionary.

I had a 68 Firebird that I thoroughly enjoyed... someone had put a 455 in it, and I bought it from a guy who was selling it to start a business.... I always thought that my idea car would be the body style of a 68 or 69 camaro (or firebird) with a current engine, accessories, etc... for me the 2010 Camaro is that idea....

The ambient lighting should stretch across the dash and not stop at just the doors, and a little bit brighter.
Camaro forever!

I wish the ambient light went all the way across the dash also, but I have had mine for 11 months now and I just found out the other day that the passenger seat is power for the recline (I never sit there and just found the switch) the manual pull foward is OK, because if power I would have to go to the passenger seat to move the controls foward and back.
