News Chevrolet Camaro convertible won't drop top in the cold

Chevrolet Camaro convertible won’t drop top in the cold

You can’t lower the top in a Chevrolet Camaro convertible if the outside temperature drops below 3 degrees Celsius, or 38 degrees F.

That’s because GM wants to make sure the fluids in the hydraulic mechanism powering the soft top don’t become too thick and damage the whole convertible roof system. 

Now, some would say that’s perfectly normal, but I’ve driven a convertible in the dead of winter during a snowstorm and it made for some pretty good video. Did Chevrolet take that into account when making this decision?

In all seriousness, this is a bit of a non-story given convertible drivers tend to have a set range of temperatures in which to lower the top, and near freezing is out of that range. On the other hand, this is the first time we’ve heard of weather-related restrictions being put in place on a convertible.
