It's very fast like a rocket, but it has reliability issues
Engine head gasket blew after one year of owning this car.
Transmission failed after 2 years of owning the car.
Water pump failed 4 times.
Some electrical issue, but I fixed it.
I bought this car in 2003, and I am still the owner of this car until now in 2013.
This car is awesome and very fast, and I must admit that I loved it at first sight.
It is red and it has a T-top, along with a big 5.7 engine.
The reliability of Camaro LT1 is bad, and I had so much trouble trying to solve the heat problems.
If you own this car, then definitely you will become friends with so many mechanical and electrical people, since the problems in this car appear suddenly.
It's pretty understandable to have some of major mechanical problems, since this car is pretty old and I used it to race lots of people before, and I beat a Mustang easily, and surprisingly I managed to keep up with a Corvette C5 until 120 MPH (200 Km/h) in a drag race. Although both cars were stock!
Right now I have a Camry, and this car is my 2nd car, and I quit racing for long time and I am taking care of my Camaro, and surprisingly nothing has gone wrong with this car after I decided to take care of it, and it's been 5 years with no major issues.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
