Review

Since buying the V6 3800 Camaro I must say my personal opinion has changed about six cylinder secondary models. This car delivers! Its got great styling, outstanding performance, and fair quality. This car is simply an amazing machine and for the price you can't beat that. If you are in the market for an affordable sportscar without paying the price give a 3800 Camaro a chance you'll be suprized with what they can do.


Best Features

The 3.8 engine, it delivers above average performance for being the base model car and at 200hp you'd think thats not much but in fact you'll be in the same ball park with the 94-98 Mustang GT and 5.0's. Most honda's, Toyota's, VW's stock to stock don't stand a chance!.


Worst Features

If its a hardtop convert it to a T-Top because hardtops get very hot in the summer months. Rear differential swap from a Z28 is also what I would suggest because the base ones aren't very durable and you can't throw much at them without something breaking.

Review

I bought this car for $5k and have put nearly that much into it. I do not recommend this car. I replace headlights like you wouldn't believe and at $25 a pop.... Replaced fuel pump, alternator twice, battery etc etc. Ever repair is ten times as expensive as other cars... It stinks!


Best Features

Bose Stereo, may be the only thing I still like about the car.

Review

The Z28 Camaro is an outstanding high performance car --- as American cars go it's second only to the Corvette. In addition to ballistic acceleration, tight handling, and great looks, the Z28 has outstanding brakes. The 350 ci-in iron V8 (with alluminum heads) pumps out 300 HP and has never left me waiting for a tow. The 4 speed automatic transmission, however, did break down at about 125000 miles and cost a small fortune to be rebuilt. With slightly bigger than factory wheels and tires it handles great. Visibility could be better. It's got it all --- great looks, high performance, and better than average reliability. I expect the 2010 Camaro Z28 to be just as great to own and drive.


Best Features

Blistering acceleration, tight cornering, and fantastic brakes. Definitely an all-American sports car.


Worst Features

Stiffer springs and anti-sway bar. Should come from the factory with a K&N air filter.
