2000 Chevrolet Camaro V6 3.8 petrol from North America
Not bad, but get a V8
Lots but mostly just maintenance. Some minor electronic issues. Also the fuel tank leaked and had to be replaced, and what a nightmare it was getting that out.
Good looking car, love this generation Camaro. Sharp in bright red.
V6 with the auto is not fast, as everyone always says, get the V8 if you want performance. It is however a smooth comfortable cruiser, and gets reasonable MPG.
My car has surprisingly little rust for over 20 years old, so will hang on to it as a daily driver for as long as possible. It has been a reliable car, but I look after it well, and have had it a long time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Thanks for the review!!!
The 3.8 (Buick engine) F-Bodys (Camaro/Firebird) are not rocket-sled fast by today's standards, but they are a MAJOR improvement over the 3.4 (Chevrolet engine) V6 that proceeded them in terms of not only performance but reliability as well. Enjoy it and please keep in touch!!!

Good point. In all fairness, I would also say that the 3800 is more reliable than the LS V8 which were used in these cars.

Can the same be said for the V6 Mustang (from the same time period) in regards to the points made in the review and comments?

The V6 Mustang from the same time period used a 3.8 V6 for its base engine which was prone to head gasket failure.

As time went on, the 3.8 Ford cleaned up its act (1999 and up).
