1999 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Coupe


Review

Bought my V-6 Camaro used with 78000 miles on it and now have almost 100000 on it, and it still looks and drives immaculatte for as much use as it gets. I have not had a problem with this car since I bought it, and this is by far one of the funnest cars to drive. 5 speed manual is a plus, and the clutch and tranny are very well made. The engine also puts out a decent amount of power for a 6 cyl. I love this car inside and out. The handling, braking, power, and looks of this car give it a 10 out of 10 in my eyes. I just wish gas prices and insurance wearnt so expensive so I could afford the SS!


Best Features

Surprising amount of torque for a V-6, nice clutch, aggressive look and style.


Worst Features

More driver side seat room would be nice for bigger drivers

Review

I have had this car for a year and a half and commuting. I was very excited when I got it, but then, not so much. I have replaced the spark plugs (3 times and impossible to get at), ignition wires (twice), all three ignition coils, ignition module, drive shaft (have to buy a new 2 piece to replace center bearing, GM doesn't sell the bearing $625, or convert to single piece $180), tires (twice, my fault though), both window motors, clutch, fuel filter, a T-top, catalytic converter, A/C compressor, alternator, battery, rebuilt the transmission. This is insane. I hate this car. I spend more time and money trying to fix it than I do driving.


Best Features

It's quick for a V-6, when it runs.


Worst Features

Everything on it is mickey mouse and hard to get at. Chevy needs to get some decent engineers that have actually driven a car before.

Review

This car is a fun car to drive and the V-6 has a lot of power. But thats where the fun ends. In the 3 years I owned the car, I realized there is always something to fix on this car. First off, the GM build quality is horrible. The car is a pain to work on, nothing lines up. The front fenders are totally uneven with the doors and the car has never been in an accident.The glue on the seals in the trunk came undone and had numerous puddles under the rear seats.The driver seat creaks and moves a little while driving.2 pieces fell off from under the car and I do not know where they came from. Watch the weather reports b/c snow will make u stay put,dont even try to drive in the snow,waste of time.


Best Features

T-tops (when it doesnt rain), handling, and the fun I have driving it.


Worst Features

Better reliability, better ride in bad weather, MUCH better build quality, make it so there is not 10 miles of dash board, make it so it stays together, better brakes, make it bigger. Get rid of the bump on the floor!

Review

This is a fun car and it looks great, so if you like that for a cheap price this is all you need. But you better have a couple grand on hand for repair costs. AC compressor, fuel pump (TWICE), gaskets, transmission service, brakes, etc. have all failed early, by 60,000 miles. Be ready for headaches to offset the driving experience.


Best Features

Looks, performance, acceleration, and handling.


Worst Features

If they were to still make it, or a replacement car, USE BETTER PARTS! Reliability is a big factor in ruining an otherwise nice car.

Review

This car is a blast to drive, and it
looks great. Insurence likes the V6,
and it's got more than enough oomph to
get arround. Cruise controll keeps me
out of trouble with the cops because
65 MPH and 85 feel and sound the same
in this car. Handles well in corners -
you can terrify unsuspecting
passengers... The monsoon stereo is a
big plus.


Best Features

T-Tops. Pop 'em out, crank the tunes, and hit the road. This is a drivers car. Haven't had a need to work on the motor, but anything the aspiring DIY garage mechanic would want to play with is right up front.


Worst Features

Uh... Bring it back!!! I'd love to see dual exhausts on the non z28.
