Gas Mileage and Insurance

My Car — Well, what can I say? Its a Camaro. Sure, its not the big ol 5.7 V8, but for a V6 it can go pretty quick. Gas mileage isnt terrible. 19 city 31 highway. That just means I have to drive a bit faster. Its probably got around 230 hp after all my modifications to it. I put on a K&N Cold Air Intake, and a Flowmaster 80 Series Crossflow Dual Tip exhaust sytem. And its suprisingly loud for a V6. A lot of people ask me if I have a V8 in there when Im at a stoplight. Its a nice, clean white body with 30% tint on the windows. Its sexy. As for repairs, the only big ones were the differential (because the guy who owned the car previously had barely and fluid in the diff and the gears were grinding down) and the fuel pump, which is a pretty standard repair on a car with over 100,000 miles on it. I love this car. I love looking at it, I love sitting in it, I love driving it, and I especially love opening up the throttle on the highway to hear that exhaust as I fly down the road. Its amazing.

Pros

Doesn't get much better than an LS1 and a T56 manual transmission. All the power and speed you could want from a stock vehicle.

Cons

Handling isn't always the best, but these cars are built for straight line performance, and they do that well.

Real Out Of Box Speed Machine For A Low Price! — Always been a fan of Camaro's since I drove my first 1984 Z28 H/O. I graduated to a 1997 Z28, LT1 power, and I was very much impressed. When I heard about the power and reliability of the LS1 over the LT motors, I had to try one out. When I did I was yet again impressed. I've owned 2 LS1 Camaro's since. The sheer power and reliability of these motors is proven again and again, in numerous swaps and stock setups since 1997. You can throw everything your foot can handle at these motors, and they keep on kicking. 4th generation LS1 cars are a fan favorite, and they scream with power with simple bolt-ons. For the price, your getting everything you could ever want out of a sports car. Loads of HP, loads of torque, and room to play. The stock suspension hasn't always impressed me in 4th gens, so upgrading it is a must, sometimes not cheaply done. But nothing to gripe about compared to everything else these cars offer. If you ever wanted to own one, now is the time with 4th gen prices at a very affordable rate as of recent years.

Looks amazing. A head turner and very unique car. Sound system is amazing and the bass is incredible. The 22" rims catch your eye and the winter rims i have are very sporty too. The T-tops are prefect for the summer. Such and enjoyable car to drive

Cons

Just the moderately high miles

This Is The Classic Muscle Car Experience! — The 2001 Camaro Z28 combines good looks and great performance resulting in a fast and fun driving experience. Powered by the (Corvette) LS1 5.7-liter V-8 engine, acceleration is not a problem. The positives: The black leather interior looks great paired with the red exterior. (Leather) seats (front & back) and power windows. Fun, good-looking and affordable. The negatives: The back seats are functional, but too compact to be comfortable for anyone other than a child or small adult. Not a good vehicle for driving in rain, snow or ice.

Z28 Ss — I love this car it is the bomb for an automatic, this thing is in mint condition and just loves to run, this car is really fun to drive with the T-tops off on a nice spring or summer day.

amazing car, love the looks and power.

too tempting to roast your tires every time you drive it

01 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 — I recently purchased this Camaro with 45,000 original miles on it, the car has the LS1 with the t-56 6 speed transmission. This is a great car to drive. If you like sports cars and making them go faster this is the perfect platform with endless possibilities and a decently priced aftermarket as well since its such a common platform. I drove this car back from atlanta and not only was it fun to drive but it also got 30mpg on the highway thanks to the 6th gear. also drove it through the twisties in north carolina and it handled like a dream.

Pros

One thing that really makes this car awesome is the history behind camaro's and the fact that Chevy is the best car company around.

Cons

The only thing that sucks about this car is that it is only a v-6 instead of a v-8.

35

My Camaro Is The Bomb!!! — This car is an overall great first car. It has the starting power of a classic muscle car, but still lacking on the upper end only because it’s a v-6. It does make up for the lack of top end with a great acceleration rate. It handles like a charm and can stop on a dime. It does have a few squeaks but nothing really big. It is lacking a little bit in the interior but makes up for it with a very clean slick exterior style. For a sport/muscle car it does really well with gas mileage about 18-21 around town and 30-31 on long trips. With it being a domestic car the cost of parts is not extremely expensive. This car is definitely a fun car to drive. During the summer time it is really fun to have the T-Tops out and the windows rolled down. And with the acceleration it is really a fun car to drive.

The Best Gm Product Other Than A Truck Or Vette Hands Down. — The best GM product other than a truck or vette hands down. With the power of a LS1 to boot you will not find a better sports car from 2001 other than a Corvette, GT40, or Viper made by a American automotive group. Only downfall to these rides is the 10 bolt rear posi unit which cannot withstand a good thrashing. They should have went with a 12 bolt posi unit instead. Also, the 4L60E transmission should have been a 4L80E due to the thrashing purposes again. Reason why I believe Chevrolet didnt use these options? WEIGHT! Not a family car by any means, but with gas mileage of 24-28 mpg's for a car that is now 10 years old bordering 11 years old you cannot go wrong.

LS1 power, and great price vs performance.

Cons

body tends to twist up without subframe connectors, and weak 4l60e transmission.

45

2001 Camaro Ss — Solid F-Body altho like all others i wish they would have addressed the subframe connector issue from the factory. The transmission they gave it has to be the weakest automatic ever put into an F-Body. Other then that, can keep with any other mustang or import on its price level.
