2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Climate Control Knobs

February 03, 2014

 SLP Panther Camaro

Chalk the following up under "not a huge issue when you're driving a 600-horsepower muscle car," but I don't like the way the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro's climate control knobs work.

While the knobs are nice and large, and have a grippy surface, they also have super-mushy, undefined detents. So it's easy to move the fan speed or temperature knob 1 1/2 or 2 clicks when you're just trying to go one.

The volume knob has some oddity in its action, too. Sometimes when I turn it a large amount up or down, it takes it a bit to register. Then you turn it even more, but just as you're doing that it finally catches up. At which point it's really loud. Or really quiet.

Again, not a huge deal. Just some weird action I've noticed.
