Cruise control motor didn't work when I bought it. (will cost $600 to fix)
Trunk electric 'auto close' motor didn't work when I bought it, nor the electric trunk release. And leaks as a result of not closing 'tightly'.
T-tops leak in heavy rain or pressure car wash.
Roof lining falling apart due to the t-tops being left off in the rain.
Rear defroster didn't work when bought, since fixed. ($35)
Car smoked due to worn valve seals, replaced them at cost of $320, smoking has stopped. (common Chev small-block problem apparently)
Driver's seat is wearing on the door side due to needing to slide in and out of this car due to the low roof.
I love this car. One of the few good looking cars to come out of the 80's in my opinion and I like it's body shape best of all the newer Camaros.
I like the stance of the car and the driving position. It sits lower than most sports cars, a little hard to get in and out of with the t-tops in place, but the laid back driving position more than makes up for that.
It has a nice comfortable large car ride, but goes surprising well around corners, probably because it sits so low.
Power oversteer is easly obtained at lower speeds.
This car has had several aftermarket modifications and I would say it puts out power in the range of a stock 350, 220-230hp, up from the orginal 170hp. It will beat a GT mustang off the lights.
This RS is fully optioned, but for leather seats. The V8, 5 spd man is a rare find as is the Limited Slip Differential (Positraction) The car was repainted in the orginal Blue about 6 years ago and still looks good, a real head turner. Plus you don't see a lot of blue Camaros for some reason.
