Why would GM not ask current owners of what they wanted in new Refresh or Re Design ?

I got to think if we were GM and we had the best selling car........

And we wanted to "refresh it" and soon "re design it" Would you not take say the current owners and let them in on design and let them voice opinion on what they wanted ect ????

The new 2014 is a fail on Chevy's part.... why... because there design guys are out of touch with the PEOPLE who bought there car's in the first place !!!

I say this the first car company who really listens to there customers and puts that into a real car there gonna own the market.....

Sorry just venting .....

That is exactly what I said. They missed the boat. It will cost them sales until they fix it. I will be keeping my 2013 Camaro for while now unless I sell it and go back to the Challenger for 2015. Those are some ugly tail lights and the front gets an "F" in my book compared to what it was.

I agree with most people, I don't like the tail lights at all. But, the angle that the picture was taken and the picture itself isn't the highest quality. So, before I start slamming Chevrolet, I'd like to see more photo's or see it in person....

And they do ask people for input; The Disciples and I'm sure they all had input. If they didn't, then I agree, major fail!

I'm old school, so I really like the hood!! But then again, I Love the IROC-Z Camaro and the louvers on that hood as well. Yes, it's cheap plastic and fades if you don't take care of them, but it's different and very distinct. The grill, once again, I have to see it in person. Love the wheels!!

Only thing I can think of is a wanna be ZL1. The fog light shape and whatever that is on the hood? The rear is just a mess!

They do have "focus" groups they use for input. Sadly, they don't seem to reflect the hardcore nutters like us....

I like some things about it and hate others. And there is NO WAY IN HELL I would give up my '10 for it or any other year for that matter!

I'm liking the rear taillights myself! As far as having no speakers.. only one for the seatbelt sound... I'm disappointed with that. Over all the car looks good to me!

you dont build a car and throw everything at it at once imo.. wait a little while and make it worth the wait...
