I had this car for about a year, and what a blast. This car was scary fast. However, when it came to twisty roads, my old '89 Mustang handled better than this beast. The car is too heavy and has too much body roll to handle well. As a daily driver, I can't recommend this car. The t-tops started leaking at 10,000 miles, and leaked even after the dealer replaced them. The interior rattles started right away, and got progressively louder and more numerous. Everything in the interior like it will snap off. I sold it before the whole thing fell apart when the warranty ran out. Seems like GM still believes in "planned obsolescence."
Awesome power, great engine sound, good looks, t-top fun in the sun.
An interior on par with the price of the car; better use of space; better handling; make it lighter; build it to last.
Best car I've ever owned. "A corvette
with a back seat" Can not find
performance like this for the money. I
own a 2000 Camaro z28 with t-tops, it
is seabring silver metallic with black
leather. It is just beautiful. It can
be sporty, a muscle car and it can be
classy all at the same time.Great for
everyday driving, or for just cruisin
around. I love this car so much and
would never trade it for another so
5.7 350 c.u. LS1 motor
More than enough power
Just a LEGEND
I love this car! If you are looking
for high performance at a relatively
inexpensive cost, this is (or was)
your best option. 305hp (before
modification), excellent brakes, very
good fuel economy for the size of the
engine, and above all...it's a fun car
to drive. I'm very sad that it is
gone because the Mustang GT (not the
$35k-$40k Cobra models) is now the
only V8, RWD car left in the $25k-$30k
price range, it it doesn't even come
close to the performance of the Z28 or
cockpit...all the controls are easy to
A little higher quality materials in
the interior would upgrade the "feel"
of the interior. But if the price is
going to rise, I would take the
tradeoff of cheaper materials for the
performance of the car.
Practical, performance, economy. Yes, I
am talking about a Camaro Z28! 25 MPG
average, 300plus HP, seats 4, has
carried china cabinets, 15 bags of
mulch, dinette sets, or 30 days worth of
"on the road" stuff, and goes from 0 to
60 in six seconds.
It never let us down, saved our life
when a SUV decided to change lanes at 70
without looking, never too hot with the
shades in, a convertible with the T-tops
out, and for safety, features Rear Wheel
Drive (as opposed to Wrong Wheel Drive -
one must never let ones tires turn,
stop and go all at once!)
Price, Performance, Versatility,
Economy, Handling, Styling, Reliability,
What more could one ask from a car?
Yes, it is the BEST GM car I have ever
owned (out of 14) and sadly, because of
their abandonment of this market, it
will be the LAST new GM car I will ever own.
Re-introduce it! They were selling
50,000 a year, but they killed it.
Affordable at $25,000 when new ,loaded.
In 2004 there will be a "GTO", but I
won't be able to afford it's almost
$40,000 price, and now, there is no 4
seat RWD car that GM makes. Pathetic.
