    Driving through our towns 'car city' and saw two 2010 Camaros sitting out front of one of the used car lots. One had "Low Miles" written on the front windshield so i'm gonna assume that means its used. Course it could have been someone's car who bought it then for whatever reason had to turn it back in (repo/death/etc).


    Just cant believe after all the hoopla about them coming back that a few months later theres a couple of them already sitting on a used car lot.

    Every saturday night here in town they have a huge car cruise-in. Most nights if the weathers nice and there isnt some other thing going on in town, you can expect to see well over 100 cars there.

    I've seen only one 2010 Camaro show up who stayed for about 30 minutes. Never popped the hood to his car or rolled his windows down or even stuck around to talk about his car.

    Yet this past saturday night there was 3 brand new Vette ZR-1s parked next to each other with a new CTS-V next to them.

    Yeah thats what I was thinking. My car was a death of owner. It only had 800 miles on it when he croaked, and I saved over $10k over buying a new one with same options.

    Ford and GM always throw tons of cars at rental companies. Look how many Mustangs turned up next to airports. They figure people rent them, like them, then maybe buy them.

    i was excited about the new camaro when i heard they were gonna make it. even with all the negative shit i heard i still ran out and test drove 1 right away when they hit the dealership.

    as a camaro lover who was very anxious to buy a new camaro i can honestly say i understand why it's a failure, the car isn't special in anyway, i can't say there was a single thing about it that i liked as much as the mustang or charger.

    the camaro was underwhelming in every single area imo

    its not that I dont dislike the new Camaro. If someone handed me the keys and said its yours, I'd be gone in a heartbeat.

    But I feel they didnt quite finish it. The interior to me is just too plain. For that kinda money I'd like to have something more than a plastic dash with a small hint of a center console. I know they're trying to do the retro with it, but at some point you gonna draw the line.

    yeah, it's not that great of a car but the 370z has alot of flaws to it as well...other than it going limp after sitting in traffic, highway driving, or spirited driving you cant see out of the car :(

    I still need to drive one, but salesmen annoy me so much that I can't deal with it.

    All cars have their flaws. I've got a short list of things I wish Ford did differently with my Mustang. But I still love mine.


    I've yet to see anyone really rave about the 370z or had a chance to drive one myself. Heat soak an issue with power?
