Pros

Great fuel economy, power, handling, looks, bright headlights.

Cons

Blind spots but you get used to it and make it easy for yourself to see.

Smooth Ride — I liked everything about the car except the blind spots at first, however you eventually get used to the blind spots. I like that the car has a ton of power even though it is the 6 cylinder the acceleration is great while still obtaining a favorable 23 mpg. I'm kinda disappointed that the car isn't the v-8 manual but after driving the manual it wasn't comfortable for me to shift being 6'2" so the automatic with the manual paddle shift seemed like a much better option. I also like the RS package because there are many features the car has that the standard stock Camaro doesn't have obviously.

Overall A Very Fun Car! — I love this car overall. The radio is unimpressive for reasons I listed above. The gas mileage isn't too bad, particularly on the highway. The trunk space is impressive considering it's a sports car. The backseats are small, as you'd expect.

Big Smiles — I like everything about this car. Fun and enjoyable, heads up display, smooth ride and just cruisin around with other camaro's around town, Hint using a clay bar will help bring out the depth of the color but a lot of work to do

Pros

A lot of power for being a v6! 320+hp and you can feel the torque. It had a unique color and style compared to all the camaro's. steering wheels feels nice and tight and stable. It's rides smooth

Cons

Blind spots are hard too see . A bit heavy ,

This Car Is A Collectible 45th Anniversary And Would Recommend It To Any Camaro Fan That's Looking V — I like the stripes and the look of the car is very sharp. Sport spoiler and 20inch sporty wheels . 45th anniversary logos through out the car looks great . The gauges on center console are a thumbs up. Also heads up display is a plus !

Pros

Great get up and go.
beautiful looking car

Cons

Horrible blind spots especially if your tall. Having your seats so far back blocks out the backseat windows.
Also leaves little room in the backseat

Beautiful Looking — For a couple with no kids this car is perfect. As long as we don't have an adult in the back seat, everyone is comfortable. But we are both tall and keep the seats further back for leg room. It would be another story if a shorter person owned this car. Beautiful looking vehicle. Fast even though I want faster. Blind spot are crazy but I learned to pay extra attention to what going on around me. All in all I really do like driving this car.

Pros

Surprisly comfortable ride, Leather seats, awesome stereo, incredible power from a V-6!
incredible deep black paint. Qiet ride. It doesnt ride or feel like a camaro like the 5 others I have had in the past. It doesnt rattle over bumps. It feels solidly built and feels like driving a bigger car. You feel the weight when you are driving it and you feel safe for some reason.

Cons

Small trunk (i knew this going in), getting in car is a challenge for tall people. The sunroof is weird, seems to suck your hair straight up with all the windows down and sunroof open.
um I got nothing else....

My Dream Car! Well One Of Them.... — Again surprising performance from the V-6 still under 2k miles and still feels tight. Seems like it needs to breathe, feel restricted when driving it hard. Nice sound from the exhaust. Handles great! surprisly comfortable for a sports car. Updated: Well it's now 2014, 25k miles later. This car is still solid, no issues, run better than when new. gets 20-21 MPG. Auto-x'd 4 times, tracked once. Fantastic car on the track even in stock form. see track pics!

Dream Car — This car is everything I hoped it would be and more. It has better power than my 90's Z28 but still gets 30 MPG. The front seats are very comfortable. The rear seats are a little small but that's why they say it has 2+2 seats and not 4 seats. You really learn to rely on your mirrors with this car because is has a moderate sized blind spot, though nothing you can't learn to drive with no problem. Overall this car maintained the status of dream car in my eyes.

Good Summer Car, — Car handles good, great acceleration, not the greatest on gas in city driving, long distance is fairly decent for a V6. Back seats are not the best for passengers for a long distance drive. The car does handle pretty good if you have to drive it in snow, with the traction control. These cars are basically for seasonal driving.

Gorgeous, Classy, Affordable, And Fast — Couldn't be happier with this vehicle. It drives well, looks great and is fun to take on dates. Every little kid turns their head to point at this car or to look for the transformer underneath. It's very fun to drive to work and back.

You Should Buy One At Any Age. — Power - This car will smoke most other cars in its range + out of its range power wise, but when i test drove the ZL1 Camaro, it put the SS to shame... Looks/Style - Everyone thinks its a beautiful car, constant compliments Maintenance Cost - same as all my past cars just that i always want to upgrade it Back Seats - not for adults taller than 5'10", fits 2 baby seats, but a pain in the A$$ to get them in and out, plus you have to move the front seats as far forward as they go. Handling, does ok street wise, wont have any issues.. track wise its the best in its price range, but could be better on a lot of tracks Front seats - comfortable unless you have ppl in back seat / baby seat in back seats. Reliability - perfect, no issues Family Car - if you are willing to put up with cramped spaces with 2 baby seats, it is a family car for 4. but not comfortably unless there are only 3 of you. Fuel Economy - hwy i achieve 29.1 at 69mph, city i get 16.8 - takes place in California in the hills based off 33 mile daily city commute to work and back. Price - nothing can compare to what you get for this price Cargo capacity - does not fit 32" flat screen tv's in the box in the trunk or back seat. other than that, you can safely assure yourself that packing for 2 week vacation fits snug in the trunk or 7 cases of 28 pack waterbottles w/ a 10" sub. Overall - most amazing vehicle ever driven.
