I love my new Camaro drives and handles great. I have the V-6 and been getting around 19-20 mpg in city and as much as 31 on highway. The only issue i had was when i first got it i had a cracked cat. No issues since and had it almost 3 years now. They did this Camaro right

Best car I've owned and the Camaro is number 7.
Great styling.
Overall gas mileage is mid twenties when I drive it hard, high twenties when I drive it easy.
Spacious trunk, even though the opening is small.
Go test drive one!!!! See for yourself what a fun car it is!!

I love mine, I have the V6 and have had no issues. I don't drive it too hard but everyonce in a while I do get on it. The only issue is the reentry into the atmosphere at about mach 5 it gets a little squearly...You will love it. I would suggest that what evey you get make sure you get the back up camera..

My Camaro I bought used at about 3 years old, and it still seems like a new car. And people are shocked that it's not a 2012 model.

I love it. I've got the Manual6 SS, and get about 22-23 on the highway, and a lot less around the city but that's because I love the way the acceleration sounds. It's worth the lower gas mileage for me to get on it.

I have 2 kids, 14 and 11, and they don't fit in the back seat very well, but they can fit. We don't take this car as a family much.

But I bought it for my love of the car, and for my hobby as an autocrosser. And I have to tell you, it's a blast on the course. I won't even tell you the gas mileage I get there.

The trunk is huge, but the hole into the trunk is small.

First car I've never had buyer's remorse for.

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

I have a 2012 SS and love it. It brakes better then my 02 Z06 Corvette and handles almost as well. Only part disappointing is the mileage average of 13 mpg everywhere and I use cruise control a
lot.

Thanks guys you make me want one even more. I will be buying this car myself and paying cash. But I have to wait till I turn 18 its that kind of money. I was wondering your ideas on color I am set between the inferno orange and the rally yellow. I live in Northern Michigan I will put this away for the winter and get out my ford expedition.Also I want to test drive a camaro but the dealers at least the one I talked to says you have to be 18.
