The Most Frustrating Fun Car by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/19/2013. Trim: 2000 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, Owned 2 years.
Pros: I have the V6 version Convertible, and if parents want something flashy but not to powerful for their kids this may be for you. It's not like its power starved, but it isn't a rambling V8 for sure. It's fun to drive, the power steering is really responsive. Once again, if you are a parent looking for your kid's first car, it may say 4 seats but like most sports cars it only fits 2. I tried fitting four adult size people, and it wasnt a fun experience...
Cons: Where do I start, I've had the transmission break, the wielding of the exaust pipes under the car break, fluid leaks everywhere that my mechanic can't find (my driveway has oil spots all over it, and they still can't find the leak?). The interior quality is pretty bad, there is literally loosely fitting plastic pieces everywhere except for the seats and the steering wheel. So get ready for sqeaking, knobs and pieces on the dash breaking, all that good stuff.
Overall review: Overall, I have to admit I have a soft spot for it. However, soft spots tend to ignore logic. It's impractical, has a cheap interior, and mine has been ridiculously unreliable. As a driver, I love taking it on back roads and going for a drive. Any other situation, it quickly becomes a bother, but hey, if your looking to go cheap, this may be the car for you. Just beware of the baggage it brings.

Poor Mans Corvette by Jim in Rio Rancho NM on 08/03/2008. Trim: 2000 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Coupe, Owned 8 years.
Pros: Truly svelte styling, coupled with an un-stoppable power plant, the Z-28 is truly the "poor mans Corvette" Ease of customization, combined with true economy, this car makes an excellent long range weapon, and is just as capable in the point and shoot .
Cons: I say poor mans Corvette because the interior trim is basically sub-standard. Living in New Mexico with the broiling effects of the sun, most of the plastic parts soften in the heat and warp, ie: cup holder bracket, console lid, door pocket walls, ect... Also the front seats could have been built a little better, weighing in at 160 lbs, the lateral acceleration forces the car is capable of while cornering have worn out the seat with only 84000 miles or so on it (not a real complaint when you should see the smile on my face while cornering at speeds only a corvette can match in the stock)
Overall review: Solid engineering coupled with some cheap parts to bring the cost down ( you thought you were paying for the radio??), makes the Camaro a real stunner without getting stung to hard.

The Sports Car of Tomorrow Yesterday by Adam on 12/11/2006. Trim: 2000 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Comfortable seats for someone over 6', great gas mileage (28+ highway, 23-24 mixed), Great sounding stereo (500 Watts!) w/ very useful steering wheel mounted controls. Superior braking, and performance even for a v6. Great, easy to view gauges, in general great car at night. T-tops give you a convertible without being a convertible. Pass-Key security system.
Cons: Fit and finish are something to be desired, the leather quality isn't great, although it is perforated. That great sounding stereo eats stock speakers, and unfortunately since the stock amplifier uses a combo of 2 and 4 ohm you cant do aftermarket speakers without completely redoing it. Excessive wind noise, and strang rattles that come from door panels (door lock indicator)
Overall review: While i may have some gripes, in general the 2000 camaro is a great car, the iterior quality is sub-par, the leather is cheap and hard, and there is simply to much road noise, but this is a sports car with a good deal of glass. The stereo is far above average with great low and high end even though it eats the speakers. I am suprised that the gas mileage is above average especially considering the cars size, granted you wont confuse it with a civic but this car is way cooler than a civic.
