1991 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 5.0L L89 from North America


All in all, I prefer my Supra


Exhaust went bad, muffler went bad.

Steering was awful.

Cruise control had to be replaced.

Original stereo and speakers went bad.

T-top seals leaked.

Cigarette lighter failed and caused a catastrophic short circuit that killed my horn, trunk release, security system, and a few other little things; I had to tear the whole dash out to fix it.

At a certain angle, the adjustable steering wheel will tear a chunk out of the dashboard.

General Comments:

This is a car that attracts people to it; mine was bright blue and it had the standard body kit that came on the 91 cars.

The interior was very spartan, with only what was needed to survive driving it, and no fancy bells or whistles.

The seats were comfortable enough, though the bolsters on the side were not adjustable and didn't keep me in place very well.

The steering on this car was incredibly loose. I could turn the wheel an eighth of the way around with no effect on the steering.

The suspension was very stiff, which was excellent for driving fast, but gave the car an awful ride quality.

The transmission in mine was re-worked for high performance driving, with a higher gear ratio for acceleration, at the cost of gas mileage on the freeway, the original transmission was very jerky.

The engine itself was excellent, had great linear power, and to be honest was very reliable. I never had a single problem with the engine while I owned the car.

Add the K&N filter charger, and dual flowmasters with a flowmaster muffler, and this car sounds great and gains a great deal of power

Very torquey engine, which was great in the summer, but not so great in the winter.

All in all, I loved my Camaro. It had its faults, but it looked great, was fun to drive in the summer, and was in general considered to be a very cool ride.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Not sure why you gave it a negative review if you liked the car. Those third gens are fairly old cars so they are bound to have some things wrong with them. I bought my 89 Firebird Formula and it had several things fail on it such as the MAF, IAC, and MAF relay, but the engines in them are solid and they handle great. They are also cheap to maintain and cheap to modify. The Supras of those years had their problems as well.. such as the head gasket.

Great reliable car with great American looks. I will never buy a Japanese pile of you know what


I have owned this car for about 6 months so far and it has run like a dream.

All I have done to it is change the oil and alternator. However, make sure that you keep up on the transmission fluid. If you don't the car will shift from first to second, and then back to first then second when you really get on the gas.

Also, it is supposed to get around 18 mpg, and I think it only gets about 13 or so.

General Comments:

I bought the car for $3200 and it was well worth it. I only wish it had a 305 or a 350 in it.

I recently went to High School Drags and it ran a 17.589 at 78 mph with a reaction time of .381.

The only modifications it has are a K&N air filter, Flowmaster cat-back exhaust system, and 18 inch chrome wheels. Flowmasters will fix up anything.

The car sounds like a V-8 and I never get tired of driving with the stereo off. Keep in mind that I have two 10 inch subs.

I'm sure this will be a car I will remember my whole life.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The reviewer brought a V6 Camaro to a drag race?

My cousin had a 1991 V6 Camaro, she had one with the t-tops.

It got pretty good mileage, 19 mpg. She used it to get to and from work. It didn't have much power, then again, if she wanted a car for power, she would have purchased a Z28.

Do you people know that "Japanese" cars are built in the USA?

Most Honda's, Nissan's, Mazda's are made in American plants.

Haha that is funny. Camaro v6=125 HP. 0-60 mph in 13 seconds.

Wow, that is a full 4 seconds slower than a Sunfire.

Many Japanese vehicles are built in the USA, but the profit goes to company headquarters in Japan.

Sorry, that just isn't true. Unless you have a very liberal definition of "most" or throw in a bunch of qualifiers. You would be hard pressed to say that even "many" Japanese cars are built in US plants.

Yes evidently numerous Japanese cars are built in the USA and thousands of jobs are created and thousands of people are employed. So before you start knocking "Japanese" cars, think twice as your fellow citizens are being provided with employment and a means of bringing home the bacon.

I took the car to high school drags; give me a break I am 17 and bought this car with the money I earned. I chose not to race my dad's Ford Lightning because I was under the impression that everybody there would have raced their own car, not mommy and daddy's.

The 3.1 has more than 125 HP I have one in my 92 camaro with 200k on it and it still runs like new. I recently took it on a 1500 mile trip and got 30 mpg with the AC on. It is not the most powerful engine.. but to whoever made the comment about the sunfire being faster.. get your facts straight!!! My sister had a 96 sunfire and my camaro would blow its doors off.

Try blowing the doors off a Sunfire GT with your 6 cylinder Camaro!!!
