I own a 1993 Camaro with the 3.6 liter v6, All I've replaced was a tierod end, a new pulley belt, thermostat, and a driveshaft u-joint. I really like the car, it has been a fun little car to drive, performance wise they are not the type of cars that are real fast, but they are nice looking cars for an affordable price, I would buy another.

Summary:

A loud, fast, and fun car

Faults:

Replaced transmission mount at 102,000 miles.

Had trouble with the power windows including the switch and the window getting off track. Also the driver side window would wait for rain and decide that it wasn't going to work.

Heater hasn't worked since I bought the car.

Replaced thermostat at 105,000 miles because car was overheating.

General Comments:

Every time this Z28 is fired up chills go up your spine, after you hear the rumble out of this Camaro you will definitely love it.

The flow-master on this car turns a lot of heads, this car is very loud and I am proud of the fact that people ask me to drive this car.

Every time I step on the gas I feel a surge of power that can kill most cars in a race.

Even though there is not much room in this car, it is still very comfortable because the suspension is still great on this car.

Summary:

It is a very good car for someone with no children

Faults:

The alternator went bad at about 95,000 miles.

The battery died at about 111,000 miles.

The drivers side window broke off the regulator.

The hinge on the center console also broke.

General Comments:

This car is pretty fast for a car with a v6 engine.

It handles very well in dry weather, but not very good in snow or very wet roads.

There is a lot of head and leg room in the front, but not much in the back.

With the very small back seats, this is not a very good family car.

Parts are very easy to find, and usually fairly inexpensive.

I use my camaro z28 as a family car. I have two children eight year old and a four year old. For my four year old I use extra child seat. I also use my car in 1/4 mile racing every week here in REYKJAVIK ICELAND. My older child loves the car and also his friends.

Summary:

A sophisticated muscle car

Faults:

I have not had any problems with my Camaro other than that people seem to enjoy driving in to it. The interior is made up of nice looking but easily broken plastic.

General Comments:

Any newer Camaro (93 and up) is the best bang for your buck car available today. The car has incredible low end torque and is very rev happy. It is also possible to get close to 30 miles per gallon. Do not listen to Ford guys, even a brand new 5.0 Mustang will not keep up with my 93.

You should consider more things before writing a tear on "Ford" guys. I am a Mustang Fox Body enthusiast, and my best friend has a brand new SS. First of all, I bought my 2Stang for 2,000 dollars. A Z-28 is through the roof these days. I put the money I saved over buying a Chevy and put it under the hood of my Mustang. With only 2 weeks work I ran quarter miles in the high 12's. The "mighty" SS barely got under 14. Now, not to mention the fact that my car is 10 years older than my friends, but he also payed 30,000 dollars for a car that I rolled up and smoked using just over 4 grand. Next time you think about buying an American Muscle car, buy the real thing. Performance, speed, reliability, acceleration, and much better looks leave Camaros way behind the American standard. Why do you think they stopped making it??

And P.S. You should get your facts straight the next time you put down a Mustang... because they stopped making 5.0's in 1995. Not to mention that a brand new 4.6 Cobra would send any Camaro back to the assembly line where it belongs.
