I bought my RS, rebuilt the 3.1 and had it bored over, replace the rear end, trans mount, fuel filter and was good to go. Wish the seats were more comfortable and that the tach and speedometer were switched around
This car is great "cheap performance." It is a very reliable car. I have taken many trips in this car. One being almost 800 miles. the car ran great the whole way. I'm very pleased with owning this car.
My favorite feature about this car is the handling around corners.
I bought my 1991 RS with the 305 V-8 from a private owner. Never seen winter except this year and had only 70000 miles. I really enjoy driving this car. It is not very expensive and you get a lot of power and performance out of it. The gas mileage is (in my opinion) the only really major flaw. I manage only 13 mpg on average, which is suburban driving. The quality of the ride is very nice even though it sits so low to the ground. The ride height can prove to be a problem due to bottoming out on pretty much anything, but careful driving helps to solve that. The t-tops leak but not too bad. only what would be expected. Overall this is a very nice ride and well worth the money.
Power, ride height helps manueverability, cool design, nice wheels, and a very comfortable ride. Also the price!!
Leaks in the t-tops can be a pain at times, and cold weather isnt good. Bad in the snow and rain
I got it with 104, 000, it hadnt been taken care of. It had sat for 2 years straight one time. it ran great, shifted strong, it was reliable, only had few repairs done to it, one was the valve stem seals which are notorious for going bad on these cars, all that does is cause it to blow a puff of smoke out when first started, it quits after that...only $170 to fix. Despite how hard I drove it, was extremely strong...later it developed major oil leak....sold it at 115,000 miles but it still ran great
Highway speed ability. It would run 70 mph at only 1800 rpms...a blast to drive!!!
Valve stem seals. It would be better if it had the tuned port injection istead of the throttle body injection. Interior accessories
My camaro was my first car and it's
been with me for years. While I have
had some problems with it, (replaced
window motor and A/Ctrouble), the car
has been great. With 140,000 miles on
it, she's still ready to get up and
go. I don't know why people complain
about gas mileage, I manage to get 25-
26 MPG consistantly on my V8, (that is
with premium gasoline of course).
I love the interior and of course the
power...but most of all I love the
sound. My Camaro's flowmaster system
puts nearly any Mustang to shame.
The automatic transmission can
completely kill the power. It seems
that when floored, the tranny will
only drop into the appropriate gear
half the time, the other half of the
time it just stays in a high gear. My
only other issue with this car...it
doesn't have a single cupholder!!
