I wanted a convertible. I looked at the Sebring, SAAB, some Toyota (I forgot what) and the Mustang. Of all the cars I checked, the Mustang impressed me the most but was not the same fun car as my '67. One cold snowy winter day I saw an 01 Camaro on the used car lot. I took it for a ride and never bought a car so fast. Buying a used high performance convertible is not the safest buy. I bought the extended warranty realizing I was buying a car that may have been previously purchased for speed. It has been great. Did not need the extended warranty. Love the car. I hate to drive it in the winter because it is so attractive. I never want anything to hurt its appearance. Love it a lot

This is one great affordable sportscar. Mine is the SS with the Tremec 6-speed, I wouldn't trade the 6-speed for a automatic, no way! The engine and the stick works really nice together. This is a such a fun and fast car to drive. Hitting 80 mph is so easy you really have to watch out.

Mine is the SS package convertible. I
have hit 120+ on freeway on-ramps.
Handling and cornering will put other
cars in the gravel berm if they dare to
follow. Reliability is excellent. Stops
on a dime. Nothing beats the feeling of
a 100mph wind blowing past with the top
down. Excellent driving car for long
trips at more regular speeds. Even gets
good gas mileage on long trips. Mine is
the six speed and is too intimidating
for the average driver to test drive.
It is worth the patience of learning!

Just goes to prove GM will out perform
any other V8 without a supercharger.
For all those who think there are
faster mustangs, you're right, but they
have superchargers. Put a supercharger
on a camaro, then try to keep up.
I havent heard anything back from the dealer. But this is my second Camaro from them and they were great durning my time with my last 2010 Camaro I had for over 3 years and it was a perfect car, no is...
I drove so many cars and trucks I can't even remember! I drove a 2001 Corvette Convertible and that was quite a drive...that car is a beast but handles like a champ! The Camaro Z28 is pure brute force...
