1997 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

well this car is pretty suprising in the
power department w/ 200 hp/tq. Terrible
handling car in every situation but the
sun. very light backend so its easy to
slip on just about everything. i got car
w/ 20000 miles on it and had lots of
problems and replacement parts. decent
gas mileage. actually can carry alot of
cargo (very suprising). dont try to take
road trip in this car. very
uncomfortable for long periods of time.
backseats are pretty much useless and
uncomfortable. read on


Best Features

driver passenger seats are bad for long periods of time. hard to get in and out of sometimes.cant see over hood. its ok not bad or good. stereo system isnt anything to talk about. overall you should really like this car before buying it


Worst Features

put some more research into car and dont just throw parts together when designing the car. maybe build inside to out not outside to in. (architecture term)

Review

I got this brand new in Oct. '96 and it
was my first car. I could not have
asked for a better one. I just traded
it in for an Explorer because I wanted
more room and a higher view, but I miss
the great speed and fun of driving it.
Mine Camaro was red and I got
compliments up to the day I traded it
in. It got nice fuel milage for a
sports car, was very dependable, the
driver's seat was compfortable, and it
was one of the best looking cars on the
road. I would recommend this car b/c I
wish that I still had mine. Thanks for
the great memories Chevrolet. I would
not have bought a Ford, except the
prices were too good.


Best Features

Great looks, speed, the fun sporty feel, handling, premium Bose sound


Worst Features

My t-tops leaked in very hard rain, and the camaro can be hard to handle in the rain. Other than that, mine was perfect

Review

Have owned my Camaro for just over 6
years, and never had any noteworthy
problems. Among favorite features:
sporty looks and affordable price. On
the downside, car feels very heavy, and
is not much fun to drive. Still
arguably one of the best bangs for the
money – and if I had to do it again
(with my finances six years ago, and my
ownership experience six years after),
I would buy it no questions asked.


Best Features

Sporty looks and affordable price.


Worst Features

N/A - no longer manufactured

Review

This is the second of two Camaros I
have had the pleasure of owning. The
first was a Z28 (with the LT1), this a
standard coupe (with the L36 V6). Both
are a pleasure to drive. The L36 is
surprisingly powerful even at the
factory rated 200hp at the flywheel and
3.08 rear. Both cars have the 4L60E 4
speed automatic trannine, that has near
perfect shift, especially at WOT. The
L36 car has the increased benefit of
bieng more inexpensive to maintain and
insure, and still is a head turner at
the car show and at the track. Both
cars have plenty of aftermarket and
custom performace products that they
can share with the obvious exception
being the motor.


Best Features

The cars look great, are comfortable, and are fun to drive.


Worst Features

Since GM nolonger produces the F-Body (The Chevrolet Camaro and its sibling the Pontiac Firebird/TransAm) these cars are considered muscle-car collectables to enthusist regardless of age and condition, reccomend high level of care and maintaince.

Review

I haven't had any problems out of my
camaro at all. It has been an
excellent vehicle. It is very sporty
and fun to drive. It's pretty good on
gas too. It's been a reliable car. I
wouldn't own anything but a Chevy after
owning this particular vehicle. I am
totally satisfied with my purchase.
Thanks


Best Features

My favorite feature of my camaro is the body style. It is so sleek.


Worst Features

When it rains or snows the car tends to slde some on the roads.
