Camaro Crash Test Rating ?

Been searching everywhere and can't find it.

Currently have an 09 mustang. Will be 17 in May but insurance is a killer already.

Hopefully the rating on this is 5 stars like my stang for a better insurance rate as I do plan on getting one.

Ordering 1SS RS.

aahhh... t-tops *sigh*

the designers were saying a while back that 5-star safety ratings across the board were a must. that's another reason the car weighs 3800lbs.

trade-offs are a pain... accelerate & corner a little faster or be more sure you'll live through a crash? decisions, decisions!

So let me get this right. You are currently 16 years old with a 2009 Mustang and you have an SS/RS Camaro on order. What exactly do your parents do..?

Hey now, maybe he really did mean collage. There's so many uses for it in home decorating that I'm sure you could make a living at it.

Cool Rates

Good for you Vizon! I was working full time and going to school when I was 15. Had a new Jeep CJ5 and a 1967 Malibu. I had high rates at 16 and they did not drop till I was 25.

Dang. Wish I had a special skill at 16 that paid enough to buy a new Camaro!

Unfortunately for you, even with a 5 star crash rating and a huge kevlar inflatable bubble that popped out in the event of a crash that covered your entire car, your insurance rates aren't going to drop much until you're 25. ESPECIALLY not with a 2 door, 430 hp muscle car under your butt. I'd be more worried about keeping your driving record clean til you're 25 to make sure your rates drop as much as possible.

Lucky SOB............

Honestly, where do you kids get your money from? Drug money? Can't understand how kids that are 17-20 can afford a $40,000.00 car. Probably a good reason why the country is in the shape it is in. Ninja loans FTL!

I was 14 when I started upgrading my 69', it was 10. ended up a mid 12 sec. really drivable car after I tore open every knuckle...twice. It will be sweet to get in the 2SS, turn on the heated seat and go!!
Oh ya, Costco insurance is half the cost. "for us anyhow"
