Was going to put something like your comment when I posted the video. Decided against it to get honest feedback like your reply.

Who would spend money to put this together? What a waste. I am on this forum all the time and all those supposed flaws can't be found here with the possible exception of a spun bearing or two. Even those failures appear to be rare. Did possibly the blue oval guys underwrite this? Just sayin' ……..

It sure does seem like the proverbial hatchet job. It details failures that can be problematic in cars ( all cars ) but other than the airbag issue, he offers no proof or references of failures rate per vehicle or engine type.

The other thing is, it's just annoying to watch:

Is it just me, or does anybody else find the narrator's delivery irritating as all get out? That mealy mouthed enunciation and his constant need to put the accent the last word of every sentence and/or draw out the last wooooorrrrddd ( word ) seems like a cheap attempt to add drama.

Just need to click through to his main channel.

Firstly when you do, it attempts to automatically have you subscribe to his channel.

Secondly, his top most videos displayed are all about his Dodge Challenger.

Lastly, it is provocative enough to get him some $$$ via ads.

I viewed the video about 80% through and you would have to simply have no other information but what fake info he is providing to believe any of that garbage.

That's the YouTube clickbait business model for you: title your video something non-descriptive to draw attention, throw in a random arrow pointing at something which doesn't have to even relate to the video, then make money on people watching your video - garbage or not. Gotta love it.

Click bait. More than likely his Challenger got its ass handed to it by a Camaro.

Fatal fake news

Meanwhile my wife's charger just got another recall in the mail today. That is 5 now to my Camaros 1 for transmission cooler line rubbing possiblity that was fixed by replacing the lines. Outside of the fogging windshield in humid areas like here in Florida I have had no other complaints or failures with this car. May 2016 to July 2018 8500 miles. I've seen ford and Dodge fan boys post negative stuff pretty often probably due to the salty taste left in their mouths from their numerous L' s thx 2 the Camaro!

Chevy Camaros fatal flaw number 6: it's too damn sexy. multiple Camaro owners discovered that letting their girlfriends or wives drive this car led to an attitude in their wife or girlfriend that was extremely hot, problem was everyone else thought it was too. GM acknowledge that they knew about this when they sold the car but did not disclose this to the buyers because they were too busy looking sexy themselves driving it off the lot.

Sorry mr. Monotone announcer man, I'll take it!

I didn't know that the 6.2 had overhead cams ran by chains. Someone needs to let GM know that there engines have this so they can update there service manuals. My friend and I just traded in our Challengers on Camaro's. I had a Hellcat and he had SRT, both were great cars but the Camaro is the whole package. The whole time i had the Hellcat I was very disappointed in its handling. whats the sense on having power you can't use in a corner. All roads are not straight. I would run up against a sports car that would want to race and if there was any curve or traffic to maneuver around i would loose every time. The Challenger handles like crape.
