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


Review

Having owned more than 20 cars over the past 30 years, I can say that my 2002 Z28 Camaro is the best vehicle I've ever owned. I've added some performance and handling bolt-ons, along with the Hypertech Power Programmer and the results are fantastic. 0-60mph in 4.5sec, 1/4 mile in 12.7sec, and I've cruised at over 160mph. Normal driving I average 24.5- 28.4 highway and 14-16 city. I use only synthetic lubricants (engine, gearbox & rear axle); Mobil-1 for the engine with Z-Max additive. Soon, I'll be adding the GM Performance Parts LS1- to-LS6 conversion (heads & cam, 2002 Z06 Corvette) and a F.A.S.T. LSX Intake with a ZEX Nitrous setup. Love my 2002 Z28. Thanks Chevrolet!


Best Features

GEN III Small Block V-8 (LS1/LS6) Engine, T56 6-Speed OD Trans, 500-watt factory CD stereo, dash layout, body styling, front seat comfort and safety features. Also, great fuel economy with good (310-380) horsepower.


Worst Features

LS6 engine as a factory option. Gear ratios in transmission-different ratios available as option. Stronger rear axle. Slightly larger brakes. Bring back the RPO 1LE SCCA Showroom Stock Racing suspension package.

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


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.

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


Review

This is the best car I have owned. It is a 2002 Camaro SS convertible with the six speed transmission. It really flies when you hit the gas and when not hot rodding this car gets great gas mileage. I would recommend this car to anyone as far as performance, reliability, and looks.


Best Features

The performance number one with the look of the vehicle a close second. Love the six speed with the skip shift eliminator.


Worst Features

I hope they come out with a new one as I have seen on the web with the six litre. I would be first in line to get an ss convertible again with this option.

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


Review

Fun to drive. Have six speed Z28 with all the options. Not built well and mileage averages 13, way below EPA. Got it with big discount at end of build out. Great weekend car with tight feel. Stay away from snow and rain as traction poor. Brake rotors warp easily and front window distorts view in areas, Black plastic interior pieces fall off. In other words a piece of GM junk that's really fun to drive. Trade value about half of purchase price after three years. Hard to get in and out of. It's ok as during the week drive the Buick LeSabre.


Best Features

The speed and torque when running the gears. Brings back the old days of the mid 60's.


Worst Features

Too late now as they are not building them. I think one should spend the additional money and buy the Vette.

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


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.
