#7 of 16 2001 Camaro
Mar 30, 2001 (2:05 pm)
Hi all...just a quick note about my new Camaro. I recently purchased a 2001 Camaro....metallic Navy Blue with tan leather. T-tops, Monsoon CD,basically every option you can get on a Camaro. I only have 800 miles on it so far, and while I usually avoid American cars I have to say I LOVE this car. It's quick enough for me and the t tops were a big selling point. I wasn't sure I wanted to deal with the theft and security issues of a convertible, but KNEW I wanted open air and had few t top options as choices go. Will keep you posted, but so far, love the car. Happy spring and pop those tops baby!

Now I think I know why they're discontinuing these cars....nobody buying them and nobody writing about them either. Oh well, I love mine....and my ears still ring from the Monsoon, even with the tops off.....gotta love it.

Hi everybody. I don't own a Camaro (yet) but I'm considering buying a 1989 Camaro RS coupe with t-tops. it has 117000 miles on it but it's in the price range I was looking at spending (2500) and it looks cool. I might go check it out next week to see if it's in good shape and take it to my mechanic and have him check it out. I was just wondering if there is anything in particular I should pay attention to/any problems I should be aware of. I live in Ohio, so some people were telling me that a Camaro is not "practical" here because of the snow we get (and the potholes that result). They are saying it is too low to the ground. Anybody have any problems with this? Any advice would be appreciated.

I BOUGHT A NEW CAMARO COPUE IN 1994. I STILL HAVE, AND I STILL LOVE IT. I HAVE MINOR PROBLEMS WITH THE A.C. BUT THEY FIXED BACK IN 1996. IT IS AGREAT CAR, AND I AM GETTING 28 MILES PER GALLONS ON THE HIGHWAY, EXCELLENT FOR THE SIZE OF THE CAR . THE ENGINE IS 3.4 WITH A MANUAL TRANSMISSION.

Thanks for sharing your Camaro ownership experience with us. Great news..., not to mention 28 mpg is great gas mileage; something I'm sure you appreciate now that gas costs are up.

#14 of 16 Problems with Squeaky suspension on 1994 2 Door Camaro V6
Jun 30, 2001 (1:59 pm)
Has any one else experienced problems with squeaky/clunky suspension on their 94 Camaro? I am wondering if there was a known problem in this regard with the 94 model? I have 90,000 miles on the car and live in AZ so I can only assume this is due to this. I have experienced this problem though since 50K miles.

I had a 88 camaro V8, t-tops etc. for 11 years. From my experience the car was put together by kids on crack. I must have replaced everything in the car, new paint, engine and everything around it (alternator, rad, every pump etc.) not to mention the huge varying gaps between the fenders, doors and hood. The car was extremely sharp looking but thats it.

I bought a camaro last August, 2000, it is a 2-door coupe with everything on it, and have had a great time!!! It is definitely a fun car, and it has always been my dream car. Haven't had many problems with it at all. I have had to replace light bulbs and that is all(front parking light,and back brake light). It has been a great car, and very flashy!!! Everyone loves it and wants to drive it!
