I agree with the previous post. It is a sports car, so I wouldn't expect a Cadillac interior. It's made for speed. And as far as the snow/wet driving, the same applies in the sense that it goes with out saying that the car will have poor handling in those conditions. Although, with the proper driving, those conditions can be traveled through. I've been through the snow a few times this winter, and as long as one is gentle on the gas peddle, taking it slow, and being cautious on turns, it will be OK.
I might like to add again this is a sports car! I have owned my Z since it was new. It has been a really good car except the water pump. I now have 100,000 miles on it & just replaced the water pump for the 2nd time (1st time was a recall). Both times I had problems with the car after replacing water pump! Even when a dealership performed repairs, maybe it is because it is a Z.. but my goodness, can't anyone work on these cars without messing everything else up. As far as handling and performance it is one of the best cars I have owned. I had a 94 Trans-Am before and I bought my son 5.0 mustang. I can leave them both in the dust and handle the curves better than those cars. Of course I have factory modifications..low-speed pulleys, borla exhaust, K&N air cleaner..ect. Maybe those new little japanese cars can keep up with me until I hit 4th gear, but they can't handle those curves. Too quote a old movie line "I'm older & have better insurance". All in all, being in my mid 40's and owning many different sports cars... I love this car.
Bad in the snow is an understatement. When you only have one car and you have to drive to work, there is nothing else you can do. You drive and pray that you don't get stuck. I don't know what is worse. Getting stuck by yourself in a deserted parking lot, or spinning your wheels in front of a dozen cars at a intersection.
Someone did a bad buff job on the paint making it swirly, definitely not the paint's fault. The rest of your review makes sense if you're planning on driving the car in 5 feet of snow and hate sports cars, but other than that, it's all good.
It's a Camaro, not a Cadillac. If you wanted spacious interior with plush leather seats and room in the back for your family... Why would you buy a Camaro?!
I currently drive a 94 Camaro in the winter. I haven't got stuck or had any major problems going through the snow at all. There is something you can do. It's called WINTER TIRES.
