What is the Camaro's weakest link?

This is not a thread meant to bash the Camaro, but rather to find (collectively) the car's weakest link regarding what customers want.

Multiple choice allowed. Selections private. Vote away!!!

I know most of the choices are based off speculation, but let's assume they are fact. If they are fact, what disappoints you?

1. I was kind of hoping for one model to get 30mpg highway...26 is good, but mentally 30 is way better.
2. It doesn't really turn into a giant alien robot complete with cannons! (or in other terms, no bumblebee color option)

Well first, 23mpg? I was expecting around 26-28mpg for the V8 sice the Vette gets about that much. Also the SS front bumpeer may help aerodynamics, but its not as pretty as the V6 bumper. I was also a bit dissapointed about the Nurburgring lap time (8:20). Any chance you can make that a choice on the poll?

If there is I don't know how, I think once I clicked "submit poll" it made it final. When you make a poll it submits the thread right away, then you create the poll. As I was creating it I saw his response and was able to add it to the poll. I don't think I can change it now.

I am so pissed that the Camaro will not turn into a giant robot! It's like GM intentionally falsely advertised that in the movie! If GM can't deliver high-quality transforming cars, then they should not be advertising them!

uhh i kinda thought we actually got the robot intalled as an option with the RS package. What happened I read in a magazine that we were and it said official and there were big letters and everything.
BTW they also said that we get 250hp ricer stickers

I wanted it to have a voice like Knight Rider's KITT, except a female voice. When I turned the ignition it would say "Ooo baby, turn me on!" Also, when I punch the accelerator it would say "HARDER, HARDER"!
