Honestly I'm a corvette owner, own a beautiful 1988 and recently owned a 2004 zo6. My father owned several corvettes and camaro's. Huge Chevrolet fans. This Camaro is much more beautiful than the new models. For some reason I have a love for it. It's fun to drive and better with fuel mileage. My corvette gets between 6-8 MPG, this Camaro is much better and is almost a corvette, i mean that in a special way. I feel that the car is almost similar, although there's major differences and pros and cons. If you are looking for a sport's car I'd recommend this year model's. There aren't many on the roads so there's a rare factor, great price and I've seen they hold their value. I'd be interested in a 2000 camaro with low miles. I'm impressed with the 2000 camaro.
There's not many conditions that I haven't driven the old girl through. Much like most people have problems with the headlamps and taillights seem to go out more often then usual - but unlike most I haven't had any problems with the tires. Breaks tend to whine on light stopping while it's raining but that can be considered normal. Had it for quite a while now with a little over 64k on it almost all highway miles aside from some light racing on it. She can redline without worrying whether or not something's going to blow or not. Great car, extremely fun, no real high maintnence, only complain is the 30mpg highway seems like a lie - around 24 average with cruise on.
I had my wonderful Camaro for 8 years, over 98000 miles. Although I went through 4 sets of tires and breaks on normal driving, which I feel was WAY too many replacements. I still loved her. No matter how old this car gets the body style is still something so appealing. Unfortunately she needed too much done to it for me to keep driving, antoher set of tires and other stuff, I had to get rid of her. Anyone who has had a chance to own this fun and awesome car knows what a gem it is, regardless of any issues. I miss her everyday still and it has been 3 years since she was traded in.
T-Tops, felt so roomy for a sports car. It always looked awesome even with a few dings.
The interior could have been up to date with the body style.
I have had this car for almost 10 years. Great car drives quiet and with ease on the highway without road noise. The only thing I have had to do is tires, battery, headlights tail lights, belts. Oil changes regular maintaince. She has gone to the mountains three times with no problems on the blue ridge. I don't like the in/out of the seat as it is low and my hips have had enough. Don't care for the windshield its had to keep clean. I would change the rear hatch when its has rained when you lift up the hatch the water runs inside. I would not buy a knew one only because I am ready for a truck, but I have nothing to complain about this camaro has been very reliable never has given me any problems
No road noise, cd stereo sounds great in closed area, fun to drive on long distances. People turn their heads when I go into parking lots as she is White with dark tint Windows and no one can see in and she looks good and sleek and trim lines smooth with the stock tires making her look strong
back hatch water runs in after getting water on it when you open it.I hate the seats being so low hard to get in and out.When I first got the car I had to learn how to get in and out without ripping my back pockets on the seat
belt holder. Windshield hard to keep clean cant reach all of windshield
