I bought my 2010 SS new for $33,500 (MSRP minus two discounts GM had going at the time). Sold it for $32,000 14 months later. The cars were still in demand, it only had 7000 miles, and I think I...

I agree with the spirit of your comment, but I'm not sure the average Joe makes enough money to spend $60K on a car, and not be completely broke! Glad if you're in that position but I wouldn't call...

Quality control means checking to ensure that the quality standards were met during the build process. What happens AFTER that is something different entirely. How the cars are stored while waiting...

Dude, you're way outta line on this. Grabber didn't bash Camaro or the ZR1 at all. All he was saying was that the ZR1's time was accomplished using slicks and a roll cage, which both help...

That's funny, my 2010 SS clutch was dead after one. If the actual production clutches can handle that kind of abuse, that would be a welcome change.

When I got my 2010 SS in 2009 I was shocked by how nice the leather seats felt. What an upgrade in comparison to the leather GM used on the 4th gen cars! The seats in general seem much...

In the US, we've already seen that many passenger cars are no longer offered with a manual transmission. It's only the sporty cars that still offer them. I think that trend will continue, but as...

Not sure you are quite understanding the idea behind 1LE. It's supposed to be a no-frills race package. You can get HID and HUD on other packages.

When I personally look at the list of changes on this concept, I see 2/3 of it as appearance mods, and some of the others actually add weight! The 5th gen Camaro is too heavy,...

Then it's not too late. You can still negotiate or choose not to purchase from that dealer. You really should too. As others have said, you can get an SS for that price. I got my 2010 2SS in June...

If it would avoid the gas-guzzler tax, I wouldn't mind it at all. It's easily defeated with a $30 part, or a $2 part if you're handy, and that's easily removed and doesn't void the warranty. If...
