I think you call OnStar and they send the data to the car.

I admit I haven't read any of the posts in this thread yet but from all the reviews I've read so far, the V6 doesn't lack any punch at all in either auto or manual. At a tad under 3800 lbs, it isn't light but by modern standards, it isn't overly heavy. At least the car is true to it's heritage.

From the comfort of my lounge chair, I know of the few criticisms I've read of the car's interior all too well... over-sized steering wheel and pedal positions that almost make heel 'n' toeing impossible... unless your shoe size is fifteen.

There seemed to be a little more power on tap in the Camaro, probably partially because I was driving the 6 speed manual in the Camaro. There is one thing I did NOT like about the V6 Camaro and that was the placement of reverse on the tranny. On the 6 speed version of the V6 car, reverse is all the way to the left and up - right next to first gear. So guess what gear I was in the first time I tried to backup? heh. This will take some getting used to for sure. The V8 car had reverse where we are used to it, all the way to the right and up (next to fifth gear).
What else did you not like about these cars? It was mentioned in a recent CamaroZ28 podcast there were some things that would be talked about later, but I have yet to hear anything.

We'll be covering that in this week's show, since we can now talk about it! Check the article, we will be expounding on that.

I hear they are about 80 bucks for the G8 key. Do people really lose keys that often these days? Perhaps less when they cost that much!

Good write up! A little less than objective though, obviously. Especially considering this line:

"To go along with that performance and attitude is a level of refinement and quality that this industry has never seen combined in a performance car. Until now."

I'm not going to speculate on who makes the most refined, highest quality sports car in the industry, but I guaran-f'n-tee you it ain't GM

3800 lbs., IRS, 400 hp....everyone in the world crapped on this car when they called it the GTO 5 years ago! Hope the new name and sheet metal do the trick

Not THE entire industry, THIS industry of topic...the one the Camaro is in...the affordable performance coupe industry.

And the Camaro is far from a reskinned GTO.

Cool Every day driving

I have noticed in many of the posts that a lot of the reviews state the vehicle is perfect for every day driving. I am a little curious if the average reader agrees. I know that most of us don't have our vehicles yet but where I live, winter driving can be downright nasty to say the least. I am not buying this car as a grocery grabber by any means but to see this is making me rethink of the days when my dad would take me to the grocery store in upstate MI in his 69 GTO. I might have to make some of those same memories with my child/children!

We live at an exciting time. Pony Cars have finally returned to take their rightful place in Americana. Good bye and good riddance 1980s & 90s!

BTW, this car definitely ain't no GTO!
