2002 Chevrolet Camaro Hatchback Z28 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

If you are looking for a solid built beast that will tear up the street as easily as it will shred a set of $1000.00 tires, the camaro is the ticket (if you're on a budget, otherwise go with the vette). I've owned 2 - a '91 RS and my current one - a black on black 2002 SS. If you're looking for the frills that you get in a luxury car, forget it. Sure, you can get plush leather, power everything, and a very respectful stock radio, but the heart of this car is under the hood.

2002 Chevrolet Camaro Hatchback Z28 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My 2002 Sunset Orange Metallic Z-28 has been nothing short of awesome. I've had absolutely zero problems with it, and I get compliments on it almost every time I pull in to the station for a fill-up. The LS-1 truly makes this rumbling beast a "poor-man's Corvette." I'll probably have to get my speakers replaced, but that's this metalhead's fault, not Chevy's. The materials are cheap-looking, but the ergonomics are great.


Favorite Features

LS1. Monsoon Sound System. 6-speed tranny. Zexel Limited Slip. Traction control got me through the NC ice storm. Great driving position. Steering-wheel radio controls.


Suggested Improvements

Fatter tires. Less undersprung. Give the Mustang GT and WRX a fighting chance.

Review

Let me start by saying this car is not for everyone. We actually have it as a summer fun car. With that being said it is everything I hoped it would be. The LS1 pulls hard all over the RPM band. The power is there whenever you want it, especially with 6 speed. I did not expect much from the cornering but for is size and live axle it sticks very well to the corner, I love finding corners to carve. The comfort is really good, long trips have been a pleasure. Decent storage space for a sports car. Take this car on a curvy hilly mountain road and no one is going to be able to wipe the grin off your face.


Favorite Features

The LS1 V8 is king! For the power the fuel economy is great. The manual transmission in a car with this kind of power is incredibly easy to operate. T- Tops are a real pleasure on nice sunny days. Steering wheel radio controls are a nice touch.


Suggested Improvements

Visibility is not great out the rear sides. Interior materials need to be better quality. Please GM never put the all-in-one turn stock on another car! Variable assist power steering or at least a little better feedback.

Review

The car is absolutely a blast to drive. The acceleration is unbeatable. The handling is superb. I have beaten many cars, some of which were double the price of mine. Don't think you are getting a Mercedes when you buy this car. It is not for the weak hearted. It is a muscle car, not a spors car. There is a difference.

Power, power and more power.

Review

i did't like the idea of gm installing a"safety feature" which shut my 98 z28 off at 112mph. I felt like that was false advertisement when the speed omoter says 150mph,and considering that my 94 z didn't have a shut off.so when i decided to get the 2002 i made sure there was no safety feature on my new z. i was really disappointed in what gm had done, i called gm and asked if the corvette had this safety feature? no! i guess it was a money thing.over all i love my z,but gm almost lost along time z28 fan and customer.
