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.
It's quick for a V-6, when it runs.
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.
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.
T-tops (when it doesnt rain), handling, and the fun I have driving it.
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!
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.
Looks, performance, acceleration, and handling.
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.
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
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.
Uh... Bring it back!!! I'd love to
see dual exhausts on the non z28.
What a blast to drive! Pop out the T-
tops, crank up the tunes, and find the
road with the most curves! People often
disrespect the V-6 Camaro, favoring the
V-8. Those are the ones who have never
driven one! Granted, it's not a 305
horse monster like the Z-28, but the
lighter V-6 placed nearly under the
dashboard helps for much better weight
disribution and go-cart like handling.
The car has enough power to be fun, yet
is quite controllable and predictable.
It isn't a Z-28 but then again, it has
nothing to prove....only to impress!
T-tops, Great handling, AWESOME style!
You gotta love the looks!!
What's to improve? GM killed the F-
body! Not exactly a comfortable road-
trip car......but who in their right
mind buys a Camaro for practical
