The worst thing in my SS is the stupid small sun visors. The few times i tried to use it i wasted time trying to adjust it only finding out that no matter how much i tried to adjust / angle it i had to flip it back up because it did absolutely nothing!

Really wish i had an actual spare tire instead of a compressor with some slime crap to inject into the flat tire if it won't hold air on it's own. I can just see the tire repair shop getting pissed as he has that slime crap going all over the place.

Skip shift was a problem until i got a skip shift eliminator.

Wish they had a better shifter for the 6-speed. It was notchy as hell and hard to shift at times. After switching the stock shifter to a MGW shifter, switching out the trans fluid for synthetic and then finally switching out the clutch master cylinder with Ideal G garage's modified clutch master cylinder it works great now but it did cost me time and money to get right.

I agree the montra seems to be more, more, more of whatever...I sort of remember the thread for the Camaro Disciples who wanted input...All they wanted to hear was what "more" do you want (but keep in mind price and weight)...lol...All the suggestions for what not to put on the cars in the future were dismissed out of hand...

Without getting into detailed items, I believe the customer should be given a much lengthier option list (including On-Star and the obnoxious, aggravating and never-ending brow-beating everyone who wants to discontinue XM Radio gets)...

Until the factory lets you pick and choose what you want and don't want in your build to be, the "problem" of unwanted and unused features will never be resolved...my $.02...

...the console is too tall, <because of the tunnel there was no way around that however> the console glove box is too small for anything practical, the cup holders are also impractical...so I think that assembly could be 86'ed...the console guage package could also be eliminated, sun visors I would want to keep.

Non smoker here, but I'd like an ashtray to put change in, one that closes up for racing. I did pay for the Onstar after my trial period. One reason, to keep me from literally crying the day I walk outside and my car isn't there. First call to Onstar, second call to Steve the cop, buddy of mine and Camaro enthusiast. No skip shift, but it's not that bad either on a ZL1 or because of how I drive. No middle lock button. I do like the XM enough to pay for it. I'd be pissed if I had hill assist.

I mean other than being heavy I really like how my car is set up. Just that I wish Recaros had been available in 2012. Oh, and ZL1's need fender flares like the Z/28 will have, my paint is shredded, so yeah, with those gills and the wide hips on ole bertha, GM could have put a decent coat of paint on it to keep it from having 1000's of chips per side.

I don't know what it looks like without back seats, I'm going to find out, but an official carpeted rear seat delete option would be awesome. Love my steering wheel controls and the micro fiber on the wheel, but hate the center, wish it was retro like the 2010's. Bigger sun visors for sure.

That's about my take on not really answering the question, I find the car to almost be perfect considering the middle lock button and 4 gauge cluster that I don't use any of don't bother me because I don't look down while I'm driving. For that matter with the HUD, all the gauges could go away, I don't look at them, just the fuel mileage countdown and tire pressure is usually it, maybe oil life.

I just wish OnStar was an option. I don't ever use and never will.

It is an option...just don't pay for it!

My 2LT came with Homelink and backup camera. I hope to never buy another car that doesn't have these options. I find the sun visors useful on occasion but do wish they were larger. I avoided the RS package because I wanted all tires the same size so they could be rotated. How long does a Pirelli tire last that doesn't get a rotation? The center door lock was the only door lock originally. I think when they added the arm rest door locks they just didn't remove the center one, for what ever reason. I've also become a huge fan of heated seats. Funny I used to think that this was a stupid option on any car.
It's Got To Be a Vert!!!!

I love the looks of the 4-pack guages, but I rarely look at them. I have a 2011 2SS/RS and I like the simplicity of the stereo.

The can't really think of one thing I would rather not have. Chevy hit a home run on these cars!
Iowa Nice

Never what I didn't want.

What about you?
I actively do not want anything that is operated via a touch screen or menu. In any car. Don't even want the screen as I have no use for it.

Really, really don't want Hill Assist. I'd even pay extra to be able to turn it off by default as can be done in Fords and Dodges.

No use here for Mylink or any other method of phone integration or connectivity, Sirius, OnStar, or daytime running lights.
