Mine’s a 1LT, so there aren’t to many options to get rid of.. But if I could choose one or two:

1). Cylinder Deactivation. (I bought a V8, not a 4-banger.)

2). Gas door lock. (Really, why?)

3). Removable Roof. (I don’t really like taking it off anyways)

4). Hill Start Assist (Seriously? Starting on a steep hill is one of the first things you learn when driving a stick! “Trial by fire” usually.)

5). Push-Button parking brake. (What’s wrong with the old lever-action kind?)

6). Noisy infotainment screen motor. (The infotainment screen “secret compartment” is one of the coolest features of the interior. Why did GM use a motor that sounds like a McDonald’s happy meal wind-up toy?)

7). Pushbutton door entry. (What’s wrong with handles?)

8). OnStar. (Maybe back in the 1990’s this made sense, but everyone has cell phones now!)

Locking gas door (sometimes has issues-don't see the need for it)
Heated seats (they barely work compared to my C6)

navigation.. if you arent using android auto your doing it wrong

I also went 1LT..didnt need cameras, ventilated seats.. so I think everything else is good

Only thing I wish I got was the PDR... but what I need to get PDR was too much, but I use a $400 gopro so Im fine.

Although I have heating and cooling seats, I don't really use that function at all. I guess the other option would be cruise control.

Almost none of these are options.

I ordered my car exactly the way I wanted it. I’ve used the navigation exactly once in two years, but that isn’t a stand alone option.

Locking gas door; I disabled it.

Cruise control; even with all the long distance driving I do, I rarely use it and could be just fine without it entirely.

ON star, on star, on star and on star......oh yeah, all the freaking spam you get from freaking on star for the rest of your freaking life about freaking on star. Can I tell you how much I don't want on star or their constant badgering to pay for something I don't want......On Star....go away.

1. The removable roof! Never take it off, and it only adds to the noise level with the creaking and popping.

2. Push button parking brake (I'd prefer an old fashioned brake lever!).
