2000 Chevrolet Camaro SS 5.7 LS1 V8 from North America


This SS is fast and gorgeous


The t-tops leak around the windows.

There is a bad connection in the driver's side window. Sometimes the window won't move.

General Comments:

This car is unbelievably fast! With few modifications it has outrun cars nearly twice it's cost.

It's beautiful. The ram air hood and spoiler really turn heads.

2000 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 5.7L LS1 from North America


High power, low price


Front rotors needed to be turned at 30000 miles.

Has a vibration in the front end on right turn accelerations. The dealer has no idea why.

General Comments:

If you want speed, this is the car for you. Freeway on ramps will never be the same. I have not taken this car to its top speed, but I am sure it will do every bit of the 155mph speedometer. 0-60 in just over 5 seconds and the quarter in around 13. Not bad for a car straight of the lot and nothing added.

T-tops are awesome. Open up and let the air in.

T-56 six speed is a lot of fun to drive, unless you are in rush hour traffic in Seattle. Skip shift stinks though. Always wants to come on when you are accelerating up hill. Talk about bogging down. Chevy could have left out that one thing.

Traction control is a nice option, especially on rainy days, which we seem to have a lot of in the North West.

Front seats are OK, could use lumbar support and a better headrest. Back seats are somewhat useful. I cannot sit back there, but my wife has and says it is not too bad. Best only for kids.

Do not even think of going on a trip where you will bring more than one bag. The "trunk" is very small and is only a hole between the wheels in the back.

Pure power


My Chevrolet Camaro super sport has a very bad t-top leak that runs down behind the speaker covers on both sides.

And also when I try to shift to fifth gear it grinds. The car only has 18,900 miles on it.

General Comments:

This is a true American sports car.

Please help me make it perfect if you have my solution to either problem.

Fast, flashy, and almost practical!


Front rotors needed turning at about 20000 miles.

Water leak in the T-tops (fixed by realigning door)

The remote hatch release doesn't always release completely.

General Comments:

More power than I'll ever need. This car is seriously fast, and very responsive at any speed.

Huge amount of torque makes it hard to launch into traffic without wheel spin, even with the automatic. Electronic Traction control helps, especially when the back end tries to get sideways.

Decent gas mileage considering performance.

Handles very well, but it's too big and wide to feel nimble.

Optional leather really dresses up otherwise plain interior. Back seat is more useful than I expected, and the front buckets are great.

Booms and shakes over broken pavement, but rides surprisingly well on most surfaces. T-tops creak and rattle a little on bad pavement.

I also own a 2000 SS and have the t-tops leaking. Could you explain to me on how you realigned the door for this to quit?? e-mail at pontiacws_6@hotmail.com

The most power per dollar you can get in America


The 6 speed transmission has needed a service for bad gear alignment more than once. Each time it requires a rebuild because the shift rails get bent.

General Comments:

This car is not for the faint of heart. It goes like a bat out of hell, corners reasonably well (for 3500lbs) and stops on a dime. Swapping out the OEM Eagle RS-A's for Bridgestone Potenza RE730's has shaved seconds off my autocross lap times.

Everything went wrong on this crappy car, so I gave it back to the dealer. My Mustang GT is faster than this and it is a 4.6 liter.

This guy was unlucky in the vehicle delivered to him, that is unfortunate. I too own both a GT and a Z28, stock GT can't touch a Z28 in performance, only comfort of ride due to the suspension in the Mustang.

Comfort is even better for us tall people (I'm 6'2" ) in the Camaro. Power goes to the LS1.... has been proven on the track, street, and on your local road course. Magazines also have proven it.

So you must be a Ford fan, or maybe you got a lemon.
