I have drove this car to about ever state in us and put right around 325,000 miles on it and the only problem i had was the gas hand stopped working about a year ago it only left me sitting one time out of all the time i drove it and it was my fault (went to beach and ran out of gas)
Beautiful style great performance for price and good gas mileage for 5.0 V8
T-Tops leak, And dash in just about every camaro cracks
The RS is fun to drive. Has F41 suspension upgrade. Nimble and agile for a V8 car from the late 80's early 90s. Mine been super reliable. This car has been thru everything. Purchased the car new in May of 1990. Daily driver for 19 years. 308,500 miles. Original engine & tranny - no issues with either. Basic maintenance stuff, several alternators, one fuel pump, one water pump, one distributor. Brake pads, oil changes and that's about it. If you can find a well cared for one, the 305 TBI V8 cars make wonderful beater/daily drivers.
Reliable, handling, styling & features. Avg 24-25 mpg my normal driving. Best ever 32.5 mpg highway.
More horse power & less wind noise. Slow power windows.
Although I'm disappointed with the wimpy 305, I do enjoy the 28mpg on the highway, and it gives minimal problems for having 285k miles, hasn't broke down yet. I've been trying to blow the motor for the last 100k miles but I don't think it can run hard enough to hurt itself (saving up for an LS1)
Improvements will come some day with a new engine/trans/rear and better brakes.
Bought the car used for $850. Motor would not turn over. 3.1L with a 5 speed Had the motor rebuilt and .30 over. I have had replaced the $200 transmission mount, tires, fuel filter, fan relay, battery, computer, injectors and tires since I bought it. Going to replace the dash panel and seats next. New steering wheel to get rid of the airbag and fat steering wheel. Love this car!!
Love the feel as you leave a stop light. Feel the power as you cruise down the street.
Seats, good god! Im going to swap my seats out for a 4th GEN Camaro for comfort. Still can't road trip in the car because there is no leg room in the back. Wish they would have switched the RPM and Speedo guages around.
