1999 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Convertible


Review

I love this car. it handles beautifully and is a real joy to drive, especially on nice days when I can drive with the top down. The engine, a 3800 series II is sound and runs great. I get super gas milage without losing any "get up and go" My only complaint would be that the convertible is very hard to see out of when the top is up. Lack of good visibility would be my main concern with this car but other than that a super car and a great buy! (I bought mine for $6000.)


Best Features

The fact that it is a convertible is my favorite feature on this car.


Worst Features

Visibility, although I am not sure how that would be accomplished without losing the convertible option.

1999 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Coupe


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.

1999 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 SS 2dr Convertible


Review

The Camaro SS Conv. is a great muscle car. It's got the fabled LS1 and a T56 6-speed and makes a honest 350hp stock. These cars are fast and will easily smoke nearly any car on the road. The LS1 is an absolute gem of a motor, the only better one might be the supercharged 4.6L DOHC motor in the 03-04 cobra. Things you should know though, the interior is shoddy, and there is only room for short people in the back. It does get good mileage for what it is, expect 19-20 avg in mixed driving. It does have a long overhang and it feels like a big car. A Mustang GT feels smaller.


Best Features

LS1, T56, easy to modify for more power. Oh and it's rear wheel drive, plus they don't make them anymore.


Worst Features

Power windows stink, they are slow and notorious for breaking (motors). Stock 10 bolt rear axle can't handle 400+ HP and drag slicks, it will break. The interior and controls are cheap and don't belong in a $32K car. The Mustang GT's interior is better (94 and up), no doubt.

Review

Like the car, so do my peers. It's fast, fun, reliable, and the most powerful you can buy for the money.


Best Features

LS1, it's fast


Worst Features

Exhaust, lip on roof so rain doesn't come in windows easily

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!
