1994 Chevrolet Camaro V6 from North America


I'm just glad I didn't have to pay for it, my ex paid for it in our divorce


Transmission has been replaced twice since I have owned it. Current transmission is slipping.

The a-arm bushings have been replaced twice.

Rotors have been replaced 4 times due to warping and excessive heat build up.

Brakes have been replaced numerous times.

Runs hot at an idle.

Window motors burned out.

Seats wear on the sides.

Motor has been rebuilt at 105000 miles.

Had to tint the windows due to all the glass, the cabin gets very hot.

General Comments:

This car is quick and has get up and go off the line.

This is the most comfortable car I have ever ridden in.

The t-tops are a complete joy in the summer.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sounds like you need to take it easy. If you burned two transmissions and all of those brake's, that is not Chevy's problem. Let up once in a while.

You must be either beating the hell out of this car, or your mechanic needs to put his kids through school, because I have one of these cars, and all the things that you have mentioned don't really happen to Camaroes until 2 to 300,000.

I don't even have those problems with my Camaro, and mine has over 200,000 miles on it. The engine hasn't even been rebuilt, or the transmission for that matter.

1994 Chevrolet Camaro coupe M5 3.4 SFI from Netherlands


Sporty Head turner that will not break the bank, gas station or records


T-top rubber lining and windshield wiper motor.

I'm surprised nothing else broke over the past years considering the poor finish and quality on some parts.

I do have a strange whine under heavy acceleration which could indicate a water pump bearing going bad.

Not gonna worry about it as it will be replaced with a real engine this next fall (Lt-1 and 6 speed T56).

General Comments:

Fell in love with the car due to it's unmatched exterior and the thrill it gives you riding it.

People look at it as if it's a Ferrari and I get as much attention and compliments!!

The interior is impressive at first, but after several days you'll notice the cheap American plastic and squeaks.

It's pretty comfortable and able to handle very well for a solid rear axle car with some suspension mods.

The brakes are pretty good, but for heavy usage not fit.

The engine is a total dissapointment in the performance part!!

It sounds good at idle (V8 like) but that noise turns into a definate V6 at higher rpms it screams and doesn't like to cross the 5000 rpm range.

An aftermarket exhaust does help in the sound department, but the power is just too little.

Forget about taking on GTI's since the weight of the car spoils the fun in combo with that underpowered engine.

It's in fact a bored and stroked 2.8 liter v6 (60 degree) found in the Fiero.

Engine needs at least an extra 40 (stock 160hp).

After years of driving it spoils much of the fun and isn't any fun to drive any more so I'm replacing the engine and transmission with a LT-1 350cid engine with a T56 (6 speed) transmission.

The engine is however VERY dependable and never left me stranded.

The 3.4 also is able to get good gas mileage and is ideal for those who live in countries where a lot of HP are sanctioned.

The overall finish is poor if you take a close look at anythung, but even after 7 years outside the overall appearance is a 200 mph car that looks light years ahead of it's time!!

Overal a very fun car for those who don't care too much about performance.

It will grab just as much attention as it's faster brother (Z28), will not break the bank and you will definitely experience the American 'feeling' when you drive it :)

No regrets buying the car, just regret not opting for the Z28 package (V8) in the first place.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
