"I love my Camaro"4.0 starson by joepitt
Pros: I have the 2LT version. Great Looks. The V6 engine has plenty of power. The upgraded Boston Acoustics system sounds very good for a factory unit. The ride is great. Don't want built in nav; they become obsolete too fast. iPod integration is very good
Cons: The opening to the trunk is oddly shaped, which makes it difficult to put some things in. Shifting on the automatic could be crisper.
Summary: The Camaro is fun to drive and looks great. The styling has enough of the '69 Camaro influence to remind me of my younger days while still looking modern. The V6 has plenty of power for everyday use and some fun while still giving good gas mileage. If you want to stop light drag race get the SS V8 manual transmission version. The ride and handling is far superior to the '69 version. This is a comfortable car for two. The back seat isn't usable for anyone over about 8 years old, and then only if the front seat isn't pushed back. But, I didn't expect there to be much of a back seat when I bought it. To me, the iPod integration is very good. I've had aftermarket Alpine units in past cars with worse iPod integration and bought them because they had it. I know guys that use Zunes or just flash drives and the stereo reads them just fine. As for no built in nav; I don't want it. It becomes obsolete way too soon and is way too expensive. Also, every factory unit I've seen won't let you actually use it while moving. I understand the safety issue, but if I have a passenger they could use it without causing a safety problem. I can call the On Star folks and have them find what I want and download the directions to the turn-by-turn system. I've had them find me a Starbucks at 5:30 in the morning ahead of my just off I-95. Yes, if you're out in the boonies it may not work, but your cell phone probably won't work there either. If you don't want to pay for turn-by-turn ($100/year above the base On Star package) buy a Garmin or TomTom.
