Fast, fun to drive, great trip
mileage -28 mpg, lots of tire noise
inside cab, poor overall quality( two
broken sun visors, original battery
installation faulty,failed window
motor,failed clutch master cylinder,
two trips to shop for A/C problems.
Too many repairs for a low mileage and
carefully driven car.
Strong engine, nice 6 speed
transmission, good looking front end.
Impove quality, reduce noise inside
cab, better seats would be nice.
This vehicle has been the car of my
dreams since 1998, when I first saw a 98
Camaro SS. While this isn't the SS,
it's easy to make it look and act like
one. The styling of this car is
controversial, you either love it or
hate it. The front end looks stolen
from the Chrysler Concorde to many, and
share a distinct similarity... but
that's where any comparison ends. This
car is FAST, STRONG, and the very
picture of AMERICAN MUSCLE!
Performance. The 6-speed manual is
sheer heaven. Incredible gas mileage if
you can keep your foot out of it. The
sound from the stock muffler alone is
Sound system was slightly
disappointing... aftermarket stereo
system would be the only change I could
Camaro's have always been a favorite of
mine, and my car has only reinforced
this attitude. My friends and family
know that my car is a part of
Chevrolet, American history. Never
before or since could you get this sort
of bang for the buck! I paid $24K in
Sept. of 1998, and have absolutley NO
COMPLAINTS. No problems, excellent
performance, and great quality. Five
summers of fun, fun, fun... GM did
their homework on these cars... I will
keep my car so that my kids will
someday know what a 'musclecar' really
is. Oh yeah, it eats V-8 Mustang
Cobra's for lunch. :-)
ENGINE! SOUND SYSTEM! EXHAUST! 6-
SPEED! What else could you ask for?
This car is a blast to drice,
especially if you crave American
muscle-car performace. V8 Power, a
loud exhaust, and that classic jet
fighter look, although later editions
of this rear-drive torque-monster have
a face like the Concorde, and we are
not talking about the supersonic jet
here either. On long trips the
harsness of the Z28 experience can get
on your nerves but the gas mileage
will be surprisingly good. I have
gotten 26 MPG in this car! driven
strictly around town expect a mere 16.
especially if you have a haeavy foot.
The Hatchback! What I meant is that
the LS1 V8 is the best engine I have
ever driven, the all-aluminumn beast
puts torque where I need it and the
crisp hard shifts of the 4-speed auto
make it happen very fast.
Bring it back? I don't know what else
to say, other that the Camaro went out
in total glory, right at it's peak in
terms of engineering. Much of its
technology lives on in the Corvette
and the new GTO for 2004.
