The performance is great stock, with minor mods, you can be in the mid 12's with a stock engined car, and get 25 mpg to boot on the highway! Reliability has been excellent, with ZERO repairs required. Although I have a manual, adding a cam/head/headers turned this car into a real beast, with a best of 12.2 on street tires at the 1/4 mile. Phenomenal handling is also available on this car to 1G with tires and upgraded suspension components from the factory.
The vehicle is very enjoyable to especially when you have the T-top model like my self.If they go back to making the camaro I hope Chevy works more on the interior and try to get an engine sold off the lot that runs on regular gas
I only had the car for 30 days, but the performance is awesome! Handling is much better than stock Z-28. SS's have variable springs, so initial suspension hits are absorbed nicely. The jaring kidney shots are not there unless your driving in Metro Detroit. Worth the extra bucks. For 25k will absolutely destroy mustangs from base GT (19k) to Cobra (32k)!
Bought this car new with 11 miles, now I have 63,000. I still love it. The only problem is the cassette player doesnt work (so what). I still get complements on it, Gas mileage is pretty good for a car with this performance. It's just as comfortable on the road as my friends Corolla or my girlfriends Accord. Why this car was discontinued and replaced with the SSR is beyond me. I've been shopping for a new car, but nothing tops my SS, so I keep my money
