2002 Chevrolet Camaro Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

There has got to be something good here. They were used for police cars. They are headturners. Haven't had it in any weather yet, so I'm waiting to see. Can't believe when they end a tradition they make a plain base car. But it handles nice, ride is pretty good for sport, gas mileage isn't bad. It is a bit wide to see with the mirrors.


Best Features

Color, dark blue, outside body style. Stereo. Not to bad to work on as far as changing oil and transmission fluid, especially if you're female. The style of cut on the windows is cool. It is one major head turner.


Worst Features

Bring it back with better seats as far as adjustments. Nothing that raises spots in the car like gas tanks, catalytic converters or other equipment. Lower the console a bit or raise the seat. Maybe a baby blue color for us wildside generation women.

2002 Chevrolet Camaro Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first car. My dream car was always a Z28/SS Camaro with a 6-speed. Well I didn't get that, but I got my 2002 silver Camaro with black stripes. And a 5-speed. This car is so fun to drive. The mileage is amazing. On the way up from seeing my sister I got 28 mpg. It is very easy to get the tires lit up also. If I had the choice I'd go for the V8 any day, but the cost of gas and tires these days the V6 is just more practical.


Best Features

The fun to drive factor.


Worst Features

The interior quality could be a little better there are little sqeaks in the t-tops other than that no complaints.

Review

I have had this car for a a little over a month, but what a great car. I only have the V-6 with the five speed. It is a very agile car that is very fun to fly through the gears. Drifting the car / burnouts very easy. The car is built solid and doesnt seem to have any problems. The seats even though they are cloth are more comfortable than my sister's Mustang's that are leather. Over all it is a sporty fun car that is a great starter car or even a easy driver.


Best Features

The gearbox, it is great gearing that makes it easy to smoke the tires if desired. Also it makes the car more agile. If you are considering this vehicle go for the stick, you won't regret it.


Worst Features

If you could go for a shorter thow shifter on this model. The throws are just a little too long for how sporty the car is.

Review

This is an amazing car for a V6. All I have added was a chamber 2 flowmasters & a k&n air filter and I have no problem with 0-60 in 6 and a quarter mile in 14 for being mainly stock. You can't get any car better for your money than this model. The handling is awsome throughout turns and is very smooth at high speeds. The exterior is very sharp. Overall a very good machine.


Best Features

T-tops looks great when taken off. The sound of the exhaust when adding flowmasters, body style, and of course performance.


Worst Features

Brakes vibrate too much, transmission mounts bust too often when burrning out. Needs standard traction control for this car.

Review

The car drives awesome and its a great head turner when its all clean and shiny! I've had NO problems with it and it has about 45k miles. Everything mechanical is built excellent!


Best Features

The exterior design and color are awesome! I love how it sounds now with the Magnaflo exhaust when I'm driving! Excellent reliability and great power for a V6!


Worst Features

I wish the t-tops were better built to prevent squeaks and I wish traction control was standard cause the tires peel out a lot when its wet. BRING BACK THE CAMAROS!!!! I would definetly get another one after this one!
