1998 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 5.7 Liter V8 from North America
A defective piece of garbage
Rotors warped at less than 25,000 miles of easy, highway miles.
Transmission and torque converter had to be replaced after 54,000 easy, highway miles.
I have owned a 1986 base Camaro which I drove over 130,000 miles in and never had to spend a dime on repairs. I owned a 1996 base Camaro which I traded in at 25,000 miles and had absolutely no problems with for my current 1998 Z28.
I am severely disappointed with the fact that I had to spend $2,500 to replace the transmission and torque converter in a vehicle with only 54,000 easy, highway miles.
I am absolutely disgusted with General Motors for failing to allow me to voice my complaint and request for partial reimbursement of the cost of repair.
I would not even consider buying a General Motors product ever again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I also own a 1998 camaro. My rotors also warped after a short time. They were turned for free. This is not a particularly unusual problem on any car with antilock brakes. I bet not all of those miles were "easy" highway miles. Why on earth did you not buy the extended warranty? To say that you would not buy ANY GM product after this is just ridiculous.
I also had to have the pinion bearing and seals as well as the side bearings replaced. I still love the car.
