1999 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe 2dr Coupe


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.

Review

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!


Best Features

T-tops, Great handling, AWESOME style! You gotta love the looks!!


Worst Features

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 reasons??
