I traded in my 2010 SX4 Suzuki for my camaro. The Suzuki is a nice little car but it isn't a camaro. I got the 6 cylinder LT model black with a white stripe. It is an awesomely engineered product is all I can say. Strangers are constantly commenting on the looks and ask questions about it. I'm 76 years old and driving is fun again. Plus I'm getting 27 MPG, same as the Suzuki. I gave it 4 of 5 on comfort because it is a wee bit hard to get in and out of for a 76 year old but not a real problem.

Have had my Inferno Orange 2012 V6 for almost 6 months and I love it. The MPG I am getting is better than I expected, I have gotten 21.5 going back and forth to work. The car is quiet, smooth, and a joy to drive. The HUD is very awsome I dont know how I got along with out it. The sound system is just amazing. The seats are very comfortable, and yes the back seat is more like storage unless you have very small children. There is that coupe problem of seeing out the back, but it was very easy to get used to and I have no problems keeping track of cars around me. The back up camera is a must for me with this car so look for one with it. I have owned Hondas and Toyotas, and this car is every bit as nice if not better than they were in fit and finish. As for the Mustang after owning one for a few years I much prefer the Camaro. It drives so much better. If you are thinging of getting one I would say go drive one, they are not for everyone, my husband does not like it as much because of his height. And some people just cant get used to the limited sight, but I LOVE mine.

New 2012 45th Anniversary Edition Camaro

Purchased a new 2012 Chevy RS Camaro convertible 45th Anniversary Edition in late August 13. The vehicle comes very well equipped with the exception of NAVI. It does come with On Star and a dynamite stereo system. I've looked at Camaros for over a year but did not do so seriously as I have 2 children and thought they would not fit in the rear seat. Much to my surprise my 13 and 14 year olds fit in the rear seat just fine (full disclosure: my wife is 5'4 and I'm 5'7 so we don't take up much space in the front.) I am very pleased with the space in the cabin but wonder why the seats feel somewhat stingy in the cushion width. I weigh 155 lbs and find myself wanting a wider cushion on longer rides. To be fair I've only had the vehicle 3 weeks now and may need to find the right adjustment. This vehicle came with 20" tires and the special anniversary rims so the ride is quite stiff but I expected such. I owned a 91 Camaro with a V8 that my wife did not care to drive but she finds this RS version with a V6 a joy to drive. It doesn't have break neck torque off the line but it has plenty of pick up for me. Driving with the top down you're still surrounded by rich sounds from the Boston Acoustic speakers even on the expressway, the bluetooth tethered phone sounds good on expressway with windows up. With the heads up display I have no need to look at the dashboard while driving. I haven't pushed the car very hard but I will say it has great pick up for a car equipped with a 6 cylinder. This may be a small sporty car but it feels heavy and solid. I don't say heavy in a bad way, this thing holds the road very well. The Camaro gives a really big bang for the buck. I complained about the narrow seat but that being my only complaint I have to say I am extremely happy with the purchase my problem now is that I take the long route to every destination and then I don't want to get out once I arrive. (I rated the reliability a 5 because there was no option to bypass this question and did not want to rate it low since I have no experience with this yet.)

My first convertible and my first Camaro. Have the 2SS V-8 with 6 speed. Black and orange exterior with orange interior. Disappointed that exterior orange color comes from vinyl. At $47,000 sticker, I would expect it to be paint. Plenty of power and a great sound when you stand on it. Transmission is a little notchy, but that may improve with use. I'm 6'9" and have just enough room. Didn't fit in earlier Camaros. Could Detroit finally be catching on to the fact that there are a lot of big guys out there? Handles like a dream. Goes where you point it with no body lean. Really fun to hammer it coming out of a turn. Taken several guys for a ride and they're all impressed. Car feels claustrophobic with the top up, but it's just great with the top down. Really can recommend it, particularly the convertible. Get a lot of thumbs up and waves when I'm driving it.

When I was a little girl the Camaro came out. My dad worked for GM so we were excited for the Camaro to come out back then. I've wanted one ever since! I really had no intention of getting this one, thinking I could never afford one. Well..... I'm so glad it worked out. I absolutely love the car. It is quick, smooth riding, great to look at, comfortable, and much cheaper to run, and cost less than my 2006 Chevy Colorado crew cab. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE CAR AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE.

This is an awesome car. Love the styling. Interior is user friendly. The RS 2LT has a lot of bells and whistles. Car is fun to drive. This one has the v6 rated at 323 hp. Has great acceleration without hitting passing gear. For a v6 I think that is incredible. Handles the corners even better than expected. I love the gas mileage (26 mpg) but often wonder what V8 performance would do. Only draw back for me is the ride is too stiff. This model has the sport cars suspension.
