concern for first year bugs,,

Anyone have any concerns for the first year bugs with this car. Im pretty close to going down to my dealer and ordering the 1SS black with white stripes, I am however concerned that there will be first year issues. Part of me believes this isnt going to happen becuase they took thier time with the car so it is right, right out the gate. I really dont want to wait, I have been nuts for this car since the leaked photos appeared a few years back. I have almost every publication that even mentioned the car not to mention the special edition posters (framed in the garage). It will match perfectly with my Trailblazer SS and my 69 Camaro also both in black,,, My concern comes from the fact that We are basically buying a car we cant drive or see first, although it should be similar to the 05 goat I had and that was a sick car. any opinions would be greatly appreciated
Plus any idea of my wait time if I order now?

I for one am going to wait, I did see a post with fit and finish issue on Hendricks car, and if it was me spending 300k on that car I would be pissed,But then again whats 300K to Rick Hendrick.

Will wait it out and watch the forums for issues

Been there and done that and won't do it again. I got one of the first SSR's and it had so many bugs it drove me insane. Great fun ride, but it spent a lot of time at the dealer. It is not just GM either. Bugs are a given with any first year model but you can be assured they will be covered under warranty. One of the main reasons I would wait is that they offer so many other cool options shortly after the first year or two. The prices also get lower after a year or two after the anxious ones have filled the void.

1st year bugs

In my eternally optomistc mind, General Motors can not risk having this car start life with a bad reputation. The second question people are likely to ask after "how do you like your new Camaro" will be "have you had any trouble". GM knows this and knows that it would cost them untold sales if the answer to that question is a chorus of yesses. Us enthusiasts that have owned many Camaros and ordered on 10/13/08 are not the people that GM needs to stay in buisness. They need the young adult down the street that is deciding between a Toyondazkida and a Camaro. It would be financial suicide for them to release a problematic car. I am voting with my wallet and am impatiently awaiting my 1SS auto, Boston Accoustics, Polished wheeled beauty that I ordered on 10/13/08. I am now driving a 2002 SS.

NONE! I bought a first year Impala that I am pretty sure came from the same plant and it was the BEST CAR I have ever owned.
