2002 Chevrolet Camaro Hatchback 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 Hatchback 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 Hatchback 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.

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


Review

This car is an absolute blast to drive. People don't believe it runs 13.3 sec 1/4 mi stock. There still isn't a car available with this kind of power for less than $30K. It isn't for the faint of heart. The stock brake rotors warp every 10K miles. The build quality was low and it showed in several trips to the dealership to replace cracked/warped interior pieces. The glass and paint are soft and chip easily. The unibody flexes causing several rattles and squeaks. The right catalytic converter sits just in front of the passenger seat making it quite uncomfortable for some riders. Take a test ride as well as a drive. It has never failed to get me where I'm going however.


Best Features

Power second to none. Exterior styling definitely says sports car, not your mamma's eccono-box. Bang for your buck performance.


Worst Features

Brake rotors are very poor. Build quality not up to par with today's standards. Too many cheap materials used in the interior. Car's architecture limits power potential (protecting Corvette), and causes rattles, shakes, and T-Top leaks. It is a good car for the money and GM needs to do it again.

Review

There is simply no better performance value than this car. It has the performance of cars costing more than twice its price. It has a fairly basic interior but thats okay because it keeps the price down and allows you to focus on the fun part, driving!


Best Features

ENGINE!!! Handling


Worst Features

Just hoping a new version will come out sometime
