Ok, my first thought is simply the OP hasn't even come back to have a discussion on his post. Just laid a stinky poopy and ran.

If you took every one off issue an made a list it would be pretty long.

For the most part the Camaro has done ok in CR and JD Power. CR has essentially complained about the obvious (no rear seat room LOL)

Ya....I owned Japanese cars too and they have more than their fair share of problems and the build quality from day 1 on them is much more flimsy than american cars especially the camaro.

Don't feed this second Troll who is probably a cousin of the first Troll.

People like you are the reason GM won't improve the build quality. You are not objective, asd will accept anything they shovel out the door as long as it has a big engine.

Hood wrap missing from 1LE (how does that happen?)
there has been ONE incident of this - and we don't even have the full story yet


"Well, this is a first. Our IOM 1LE arrived today without the hood wrap. How does that happen? Can't believe they let this one slip through this way.

Not sure if we're gonna leave it this way or not. I guess we'll leave it up the customer. "


http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=301119

Three of one size tire, and fourth tire of different size (the people at the plant must be high)
ummm...have never heard of this issue (and I'm on here a LOT) you sure this is a camaro issue?


"WTF GM!?! MINE came with 3 285's and a right rear 305 (ZL1) "

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/newrep...eply&p=6662791


Trunk lids partially painted inside
not an issue for the Camaro



Wheels poorly painted, and no paint on inside of wheel
OK - this one I'll give you. The wheel paint could be better, but it would also increase cost(s) to powder coat them

Big gaps between door and dash on one side
again, not a camaro issue

"My drivers side of the dashboard at the top where it meets with the door panel is off. Any one else have any fitment issues with interior parts? Would something like this be covered under factory warranty?"

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=164676

Gaps between bumper and headlights different side to side
not a camaro issue


"Quality Control is lacking at GM. On my car, the drivers side headlight is 1.5 inches from the bumper cover and the passenger side headlight is .25 inches from the bumper cover. The rear right bumper cover is not popped in all the way. I brought it back to the dealership and left it with them to fix these issues. When I picked it back up they said that they fixed the front bumper but they could not fix the rear. I am not sure what they did because the issues are still there. I don't want to take anything loose and potentially break a tab because then they will blame it on me. "

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...=301119&page=2


Uneven metallic paint
There was a TSB released in 2010 regarding this issue. Reason is because of the different materials (metal vs. polyurethane plastic)


"Even Ray Charles could see it doesn't match."

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2324363


Thin paint
valid point - our clear coats could be better


"After buying my SS, I loved it. I really thought I would keep it forever, then I arrived home. From the dealer to my house, I chipped the paint on the fender from a rock. After making a trip, my car looks like the front has been sand blasted. The paint quality on this car is so bad, Chevy admits there is only one coat of paint, and a coat of clear. You look at it wrong, and it scratches. I garage it, and come out going "Where did this come from?" I never drive it!!!!!"

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...light=dash+gap

Specs and dirt in paint
very few occurrences of this, and in all instances GM has stepped up and fixed it


"Question on fixing dirt specs in OE paint. I've got a fresh built 2 week old IBM SS. There is a couple dirt specs here and there in the paint. A couple that are pretty noticeable are in the rear quarter panel. Pretty small, have to be at the right light/angle to notice."

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=201046


Front valence sticking out from fender
There is a TSB issued for this, it's a very simple fix. Oh and considering that all front splitters are installed by your dealer, not a Chevrolet issue


"Any of you 1LE owners having problems with the fitiment of your splitter on the sides right before the wheel well opening? Like not fiting flush against the bumper the last two/three inches or so. I installed mine and it was ok, then after about a week or so it has pulled away further. I've seen some pics of actual 1LE's on here and some seem to have the same issue."

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=272918

Clutch chatter
TSB was issued about this. Easy fix.

Driveline slop
TSB was issued about this. Easy fix.

Missing fasteners
You'll have to be more specific, there are a lot of fasteners in our cars.

Misaligned panels resulting in interference fit, and paint worn away
Are you talking about the spoiler paint chipping? Easy fix, and there was a TSB issued

Once everyone gets tired of this garbage assembly, they will move on to other makes of cars. People will only put up with this for so long. This isn't 1969. People have options. Get your act together or go bankrupt again.

Comments are in red. Again - I think you're talking about multiple car manufacturers.
Stig, thanks for the response. I have commented to some of these with quotes in green from others, and the links. I need to leave, so will finish later.

So for everyone who has the word "troll" in their post, what you are saying is GM should do nothing about improving quality, while the rest of the manufacturers continue to improve their quality.

Oh, that's brilliant.

That's a great way to see the Camaro discontinued again.

The Cadillac's are built at the current plant that will build the new Camaro.

Look at some of these and see if the same problems exist.

I'm glad to hear it will be built in a more modern plant. That's got to help with some of these issues, especially paint.

Thanks!

The problem I have with the comments you made in regards to The Stig's is that all of your evidence is basically he/she said. There's no proof to what you have posted other than thread posts with no pictures, except the RJT paint.

The mismatched wheel? No pictures, and only one post, no thread in regards to it.

The misaligned panels?...no pictures, no resolution stated.

The mismatched paint for the RJT 2010? I had that color in that year, it does match under exact lighting and alignment conditions. It's a metallic paint, it shouldn't take a degree in physics to understand that light bends and reflects different colors and brightness depending on the surface.

What I'm getting at is what are you trying to accomplish? Are you REALLY trying to help improve the quality of the cars that GM produces? Or just bash the cars because you've got a grudge against someone/something?

And, what car do you drive anyway?

This is my second Gen 5 Camaro. Is it perfect, nope not even close. Is the quality up to snuff to where "I" think it should be? Mmmmm I suppose, for the money it's probably about right. Are things to nit-pick, ah yes. Mis-aligned panels/bumper covers and such do exist, mine had a couple needed sorted and it wasn't a big deal. I can't believe Stig didn't know about the wrong size tire issue with SUKXOSTs 1LE. It's a big forum and lots of people posting issues and complaints. It's bound to happen.

I'm not a troll feeder, just a realist. I'm not bitching or complaining either that's for sure. I'm pretty happy with our previous 12' SS and our current 13' 1LE. There's always room for improvement but in the mean-time keep up the good work GM.
