2000 miles through,wind,rain, and snow

2010 Chevrolet Camaro LS 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)
I rented a v6 Camaro. Drove with 2 adults and 2 children. Trunk held kids luggage, gifts, and overnight bags for adults. I moved drivers seat up for passenger. Drove that way for 3 hours no issue. teens were good to go in the back seat.
Drove through nasty weather from Seattle down I-5 over to Hwy 101 to San Fran with 2 adults.
Standing water, high winds, and heavy rain. Car handle well and was fun drive through the twisties on 101. Seat comfort is ok.
4'11 wife could see over door sills.
V-6 has plenty of power, It'll pin you to your seat.
Drove through Yosemite and 80 miles of snow at 5000+ft.
Slow going with chains but no issues. Adjust mirrors be careful backing up, blind spots.
The power from V-6. It'll put a smile on your face.
SirrusXm radio on a long trip.
Paddle shifters for down shifting on narrower ice/snow covered roads.
The exterior design.
13 year old girl made a point to get a picture in the drivers seat. Told me I'm going to buy her one. Might be a negative for a Father.lol
Interior gauges were nice, good retro style.
Fog lamps and temp readout came in handy.
Felt good to drive after 3 days of 8+ hours driving it.
Didn't feel like a base model rental car 9000miles now with 11000miles.
Didn't want to turn it in.
And I'm a Ford guy.
Can't speak for long term reliability.
Steering wheel is a bit thick and I wear large size gloves.
Telescopic steer wheel.
Paint on rear bumper is thin.
A parking lot shopping cart went straight to the plastic.
Trunk opening is small.
I think an auto-stick is better than paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
