2002 SS Bought Brand New

I bought my 2002 Camaro SS/SLP/T-Top brand new in 2001. So far it has 67K miles on it and still has the original factory brakes and the rotors have never been turned and there is no rotor vibration.. Obviously it has not been at a 1/4 mile at a time. Best Camaro I have ever owned and I have been buying them since 1970.


Very fun and reliable car.

At first, people told me to be careful because the visibility with these cars supposedly is poor. I test drove mine, parked a few different ways, etc and I had no trouble seeing out of the car. Mine is a 2SS/RS with a 6 speed manual, the only thing I recommend is to take the fuse out for that 1st to 4th skip shift. The car accelerates, stops and corners flawlessly.


A fun car, but too many problems

I own the V6 base model, so a Z28 will be a different experience. I drive harder than 99% of the people as well. I had all the stupid problems you could imagine, that are also common; VAT failure, bad accelerator pedal, failed belt tensioner, spun crank bearing, transmission failure (4L60E), etc... all inside of 2 yrs. and 100k mi. (44 of them by me) The looks have definitely grown on me, and it is fun to drive despite the massive bulk (3300lbs) The engine did hold up to being water locked, so the underpowered 3.8 is definitely robust once the bearing issue is solved. Needs to be driven like typical people to get advertised gas mileage; putting your foot in it is actually worse than a V8; throttle has to be smashed to get it out of its own way. Final word; didn't buy this to be a honda or toyota.


best convertible ever and fun to drive

this car is great to drive .super power and handling and on all factory options to make the most enjoyable ride on short as well as long trips and great gas milage


great performance and reliability

great sport car for 2people in the front possible 3rd in the back.excellent front leg room and seating. im 6foot 3 and have plenty of room when driving


ss camaro convertible

this car is amazing at a fraction of the cost of a corvette/styling and performance at its best. this is the closest vehicle to owning a corvette with all options chevy has to offer.


Favorite car I?ve owned

Great power, fun to drive. Pretty good mpg for a v8. Body lines that seem to never get old. All around great car


2002 SS bought new and will never sell.

My silver '02 SS, LS1 V-8, 6-speed manual with T-tops and leather seats was delivered in August 2002. It was supposed to be last year of the Camaro but we know how that worked out. After 15 years it only has 46k miles on it. I'll never sell it. In fact it's in my will that it'll go to my oldest son. It's a fun car to drive to cruise-ins and Cars & Coffee. It's almost like having a 4-seat Corvette. Most 4th generation Camaros have been used up by now. If you find a good SS or Z/28 expect to pay a nice price, but they're still affordable. They're fairly simple to work on not having all the computerized gadgets like the newer models.


Best car I have ever driven

The 2002 Chevy Camaro is an amazing car what's the best car Chevy ever made the LS1 engine has tons of power the 6-speed manual transmission is amazing The Styling of the car is great best car I've ever owned would consider buying another one without hesitation


Love the "deep throat" rumble and responsiveness.

Exceeding fun car to drive! Convertible was a favorite feature and drew a lot of looks. Sound system was great. The 6 speed manual makes one feel in personal control of the car. Love it!
