There are many things I dislike about our new Corvette, but this is one of them.

    I see at least three things wrong it that pic, of which the [non-permissible content removed] button quality (and things like that matter in a $20K car, nevermind one pushing $70K.) That stitching is laughably haphazard, too, and is that staining I see in the pleather-wrapped wheel rim already?

    It looks like they ripped those buttons (or at least their design) right out of one of their cheaper cars. There is a solution to this. GM shouldn't have such cheap feeling switchgear in any car, at any price. Feel the controls in a Mazda3. If GM can make everything in the Cruze feel as smooth and solid as a Mazda, then they can go ahead and freely share with the Corvette.

    Other publications have complained about the cheapness of the inside door panels. Apparently if you push on it, the whole panel flexes.
    Is this true?

    GM buttons and switches have always kinda bugged me with their hollow, brittle feel. Ultimately that is pretty meaningless from a functional standpoint, but it colors your entire perception of the quality.

    that stitching is nasty!

    Hasn't this been a problem on most GM's to one degree or another since at least the mid 80's?

    Funny, I thought those buttons were actually pretty good.

    (Of course, I'm an actual owner, as opposed to all the tards posting their snarky comments here.)

    So they upgraded all the cheap multimedia buttons except for the volume switches from the 07 Tahoe...

    How many people who have commented have actually touched the steering wheel of a Stingray?

    You're making too much sense. The haters posting in this update do not tolerate being logical. Watch as my post get demoted simply for pointing that out.
