Thinking of taking the plunge......

I'm going to test drive a new one tomorrow. Should I expect a lot of wind noise at 70 with windows & top up? Is water leakage common? Will the ride be rough?

Any thoughts on what I should expect to pay?

Any advice appreciated.

Can't Wait, Anne

Would you buy a brand new 2013 that lists for about $38k ,or a 2014 that lists for about $34K.? Price would be about the same? Is it worth giving up options for a year newer ?

More information is required to answer that question. Is the 2013 a 2LT and the 2014 a 1LT? Does either one have the RS package?

The HUD and backup camera are almost must options in my opinion ... I am also very partial to the RS package ... lastly if the 2014 refresh matters to you at all or whether you like the 2013 tail lights ... being they have both 13s and 14s on the lot you should be able to get something for price, I would hope ... I think I would be on the 13 myself, although the different colors might push me to the 14 just because I am partial to a more maroon color ... lastly the 2015s should be available in September, if I recall

Your getting a lot for that 2014.. more than that 7K difference, IMO its what I'd go with, if its the only choices, besides the HUD & backup your also getting leather, Aluminum rims and the extra goodies the LT2's vs LT1's offer.. also like Hookie.. said you'll get the RS package.. witch has a lot of extras that you'll might like.. IMO mainly the lights & spoiler but no matter what, it all depends on what your looking for or want or care a bought.. for some its all a bought all the goodies & for others, they like to build off what they might want stock or to MO
See if they will deal w/you on the cost's and any goodies they might add in as a incentive to buy like the 13' tho.. no matter what.. both are a Amazing Camaro's

Keep us updated & any Q&A's .. we luv to help and were a great community
