I bought her almost 5 years ago and she has been nothing but a blessing. I purchased my Camaro, after having a mechanic look at it, just to be sure, with 43,000 miles on the odometer. I changed the tires recently after my purchase, and bought a new battery. My Camaro is a Florida car so it had no rust underneath. My only major replacement on this car was a wheel sensor mod that went bad after 51,000 miles. I have no other problems to list, minor or major. I have really enjoyed my Camaro. It is by far one of the best cars ever built. It was genius that GM finally decided to put the 3.8 engines in the Camaro, which was in '96. The 3800 series engine is GM's best engine ever built.
I love the overall appearance of the vehicle. It definitely gets attention, mostly wanted attention. I love the 3.8 engine, I love the Bose sound system. Does not need to be modded up, looks fine just as it is.
Dual exhausts on the V-6's, 17 rims, just minor silly things. Overall a wonderful vehicle. It broke my heart when I heard that they were going to stop making them. I am holding onto mine!
This is the best car ive ever owned.
Everywhere i go i turn heads, and the
car is already 5 years old. the ttops
are awsome to take off in the summer,
and the car will get the ladies;)trust
me. By far the best car in the world
for the money
Last year my wife and I found a used
1996 base model with a V-6. Often we
take it down to our parents home in
south Florida. In the past three months
repairs have started popping up like
crazy. Voltage regulator 350 Low beams
went out 60 Serpintine belt and the
waterpump quit 250 Two weeks ago the
fuelpump's check valve failed. The fuel
module which includes the pump, sending
unit, and check valve. Translated-Chevy
charges 406 for the part alone, and by
the way the new Camaro has the fuel
pump INSIDE the fuel tank. That was 4.9
hours in labor. 847 Done by Chevy with
a lifetime warranty.
Excepuatly fast 3800 series II V-6,
sleek body style, and an exillirating
driving experience no matter if it is
short distnace or long road trip
upgrade of known-to-wear parts. (i.e.
Rear Main Seal- higher qualtiy seal or
strengthen the design)If a car is
infamous for wearing a part early than
the part should be addressed on the
engineer drawing board.
This is truly a great car. It's fun to
drive, looks great, gets great mileage,
and never breaks. My wife and I have
put 35k on it without ever having to
repair anything other than a pulley. We
need a four-door, and I hope whatever I
get is as reliable as this has been.
Great preformance with good mileage (21+
around town) Easy to get into traffic.
