You have very low standards for car companies, it's as if you expect them to make cars where something stinks.
Actually, it is not dumb to say that these guys are "sponsored by Ford," because guess what, they are. They drove that Shelby on Bull Run and the car was given to them by Ford. Just look through their website, there is story after story about Fords, particularly Mustangs. They are basically Ford fanboys who, like a lot of websites/TV shows/magazine mix advertising with journalism. The thing that annoys me is that the General just doesn't seem to play the game like Ford does. I'm sure if GM cultivated relationships with journalists like Ford does, they could get similar reviews.

lol why are you guys getting so hurt. the camaro has it flaws, just like the mustang.
every reviewer has complain over the exact stuff matt complained since the camaro came out. besides i imagine the maro would feel worse because it is a incomplete prop car.

some how every one that complains about the maro, is paid by ford.

The car is ok but this movie is probably straight to Sci-fi or video.

If you’re going to make up facts you might as well make up some statistics for us too!



And this is a CAMARO FORUM, so yes we are going to comment on bad reviews.

Can someone bookmark this topic? Every one of those dumb mustang vs. Camaro threads always ends up with the mustang guys claiming that IRS doesn't make any difference on rough roads when cornering. They act like it's a myth or something. I like this guy seems pretty objective and his criticisms of the live axle seem to ring true with everything I have experienced.

No doubt the IRS is better on rough roads. It isn't nearly as bad as the camaro people on here would like you to believe though.
