In a chevy for the first time

So we're renting a new Chevy malibu as a rental car while we visit Texas. Been in it 5 minutes and the cup holder cover doesn't work (only 13k miles) the seats are hard as hell, and they awkwardly placed some of the controls like the cigarette outlet for our portable gps is right behind the auto "shifter" (don't know what you call that on an auto lol) anyone else have problems with Chevy cars? I don't know if it goes for all Chevy models but if this is how a camero is, then now I understand why mostly no one on here likes them

Haha exactly! And the interior is just plastic. At least the stangs are really nice on the inside and outside.

My mom has an HHR an 07 i believe. I've grown up around Chevy all my life, and honestly, i like them. Learned to drive in them. But the quality on her car is So-So. Theres a couple little things that are wrong with it, but overall it's comfy as hell. I'm it gets decent gas milage, i've hit 33 mpgs on the highway. Plus, the seats fold down, and it's got plenty of room to move cargo. You guys need to admit, not all chevys are bad lol.

I got in a newer Camaro before ever seeing the inside of the 2011+ mustang interiors, and I just have to say the interior of those cameos are the worst god awful things ever haha. You can barely look out of the thing and the gauges are so dumb looking. Basically I didn't like it. Now I'm in a pony packages v6 2011 mustang. Interior is perfect in my opinion

I could go on for days about the problems my moms 98 camaro z28 had (but it was the fastest stock car I've ever been in other than her new 07 vette and my buddies 03 cobra) her z hit a 12.7 stock btw

However both those cars had major annoying problems all the time... Motors r/were great but everything else sucked

Haha yeah like this was just crappy plastic side pieces and I've seen some pictures on here of the new mustang interiors. Wow they look like luxury cars. I don't know the quality but it sure looks good

And I have no problem admitting if the Chevy was nice. But this one is just terrible

Is that the race model for that year? Cause I've heard all those old model camaros are slow as molasses lol. That's pretty good for stock though

Yea the Chevy guys called it "one of those factory freaks" supposedly they would grab a car off the assembly line an build it by hand (quality control... Not sure if this is true) but I beat lightly modded ws6 t/a on a regular basis back then

They aren't all that bad... My dad has an 03 Vette and it is actually very comfy inside. I do like Fords better but i'm not one of those people who just bashes every other manufacturer because they don't build mustangs lol.

Well I'm not bashing, I was just agreeing with most other people and supporting with evedence as to why people say they aren't as good as mustangs. And I have no doubt that the vette is extremely nice. Its like the shelby/super snake for ford. I'd love to own one. I've loved corvettes longer than mustangs but I feel I'll be a mustang owner for life now
