Review of the 2001 Chevrolet Camaro

  • If poor visibility, questionable build quality, and a cheapo interior don't bother you, the Camaro is as fast as it gets for under $30K.

  • Safety

    Fun (Base), fast (Z28), furious (SS).

  • Cons

    Chrysler Concorde front styling, cheapo interior materials, boy-racer image.

    More horsepower is on tap for the Z28, newly-styled chrome 16" wheels are a new option for base and Z28 models and Sunset Orange Metallic is added to the list of colors.

16 and ready to run

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)

This is my first car its a basic V6 hatchback and so far its been better than anything out there I could afford. It handles windy roads like its on rails and puts the power down when you want it. The monsoon sound system blows my friends systems away. This one is going to be around for a long time.




Daaaang!!!!!

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)

Bought this Camaro 90,000 miles on it, looked for 6 months for one that was not molested. Bought it and man will these things get it with the V6. Super great gas mileage and a head turner. Much more car than I ever expected for the money. For all those out there better get one soon especially if you can find one under 6 grand for the nice ones. Round out that Camaro collection before the 2010's come out. I got mine! How about you?




Been a good car

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)

I bought the car new in 2001 and with the exception of a broken mirror control, and defective battery terminal has never had a problem. Has a lot of high end features.




Great fun car

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)

Bought this car in June of 2006. Has the base 3.8 features including no power windows or locks but has the ttops and the awesome monsoon stereo. Such a fun car to drive tho and always get compliments on it. Rear wheel drive is a ton of fun too but its a bit difficult to drive in the snow. Love the styling of this gen Camaro. Fuel economy isn't great but not terrible. Very reliable for me as I have yet to have something major breakdown. This car loves to hug the road at high speeds and on big curves. Driving with the windows down and ttops off, it's just an amazing car to cruise in. With the rear seats folded down you can fit quite a fair amount of cargo in the car if needed. Awesome car!




Nice while it lasted

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)

Was fun to take the t-tops off and drive around, and got pretty good fuel mileage. Had to keep replacing the passenger side turn bulb because the bulbs kept melting. Had to hand wash it because if I went through the automatic car wash, water would always come in.




Love it!

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Camaro 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)

I absolutely love this car. Even though it is a V6 they have a lot of power! It's fun to drive and always turns heads. It's never had any problems and gets an average 24mpg. I would recommend this car to anyone!
