1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 2dr Coupe


Review

This is my first V-8... I've owned a Honda Accord, Acura Integra, and Infinti I30t... I was ready to try something radically different. The Camaro has been very fun.. I love the Power and the T-Tops. Doesn't have the build quality of the other cars I've owned, but my other cars a lot more $$$ to buy. This car makes lots of odd noises... but if you push the gas pedal the cool sound of the V-8 drowns out all the other noises. I've had one consistent problem with the car, which the dealer and other mechanics have been unable to resolve... the power is uneven on light engine load conditions... If It weren't for this problem I'd probably be in love with this car.


Best Features

Exterior Design, Power, Affordable Price, T-Tops, Handling, Suprisingly Good Traction in Rain.


Worst Features

Build Quality, Squeaks, rattles, poor quality parts

Review

I bought my z28 four years ago after
selling my 1988 iroc-z. The performance
gains from the z28 and the iroc is
unbelievable. Low 13 teens in 1/4 mile
with mods (borla catback,K&n intake,3.73
gears). I love my car but now i want a SS.


Best Features

bose stereo sytem rocks. Traction Control. Lots of parts on the market for upgrades.


Worst Features

Brakes seem to wear untill i swaped the stock rotors with slotted. Emission hose keeps burning up.

Review

A 1996 Z28 Hatchback Camaro is a great
car! The car hugs the curves so your
back end doesn't drift. It just really
makes you feel like you're in control.


Best Features

One of my moost favorite features....when you let off of the gas, the car automatically slows down.


Worst Features

The car is perfect to me, but it's kinda hard not to be perfect of you're a Chevy!

Review

I read the other reviews about buy a
Mustang, Viper, etc. Who want 70hp less
for more money in the Mustang, and want
to pay 7 time more for a Viper? My Z28
has been great to me. I have had it for
2 years and 25k miles. Replaced
waterpump and power steering pump, and
thats all. My other problems were
related to instlling of my headers, ie.
burnt plug wires. Fun to drive,
eventhough its an auto, leather
interior is very comfortable. I don't
know what the other reviewers were
talking about bad interior and
uncomfortable, they must of had cloth.
T-tops do not leak and aftermarket
exhaust is a must.


Best Features

Acceleration, stopping ability, leather interior, awesome stock performance, great performance for little money, Bose radio system


Worst Features

More than one cupholder, but then again, its a sportscar, not supposed to have any to begin with.
