1999 Chevrolet Camaro RS 3800 series II 3.8 V6 from North America
Perfect and inexpensive practice car for the V8
Catalytic converter sounded like tin cans rattling. This wasn't a problem since I wanted a straight pipe exhaust anyway.
Car needed a tune up. This is normal maintenance at 100,000 miles and was quite cheap.
Battery suddenly died one day. I replaced it, which wasn't so expensive. This was probably since it was old to begin with. Alternator is string, so no big deal.
I blew two tires, but that was partly my fault for driving so hard.
The only that did make me angry so far was that I had to replace a coil pack. At 200 dollars that was kind of expensive.
I love this car. It is my first sports car coupe. I think that it will allow me to be ready for the V8 in the future.
I love the handling, and at 200 hp it is quite fast for a V6.
The 3800 series II engine is award winning and very strong.
The car is not hard to work on, and when you do it is not that expensive and parts are not hard to find.
The car is easy to mod up. You can add a supercharger, headers, a cold air intake, and good aftermarket exhaust to perform better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
