2014 Camaro

My 2011 CGM 2SS/RS is getting up there in miles. It is just past 94K on the odometer. Started thinking maybe it is time to trade in even though I have only had two issues: Squeeky belt tensioner replaced under warranty, and gas pedal replaced (sensor issue) by me for pay ($50 part). Still looks like new(er) car and I am happy with it. I stop and look at current crop of available 2014 SS and 2LE models. I just cannot do it.........Personally, I much prefer the 2010-2013 version. I'll just keep going with my current car. Am I being too petty about the refresh?

94k miles? Do you drive it all day and all night?

If you trade do it before it hits 100,000, anything over that usually turns away a lot if potential buyers.
Right now is a great time to get a 13 if you don't care for the refresh. There are still a lot to choose from.
Since you are in michigan give BeckyD@RodgersChevrolet a hollar, she will give you the best deal out there.

Otherwise I would keep it until repairs start costing more a month than a car payment would. You may be able to save enough cash to put down a larger down payment or even pay cash.

If it is your daily driver and you commute I would get a new one while interest rates are low.
Rates will start going up when the government scales back quanitive easing, where they are buying their own treasury notes to keep the dollar down. Once they scale that back the dollar will go up and so will interest rates.

Why is everyone so scared of the big 100,000?

You can get a hell of a deal on a brand new 2013 right now. So... what's your excuse now?

Do it! Love it!

I do have a truck that is about 1000 miles away from hitting 300K, so I do keep my vehicles for a long time (1997 F150). I traded a 2006 Trailblazer SS in on the Camaro that had 150K on it. The Camaro is my DD even in the winter......Just don't want this ride to be over, I like it a lot.

These cars now what day are built to go way more than 100 K. Stick with it if you have no problems. Maybe the Sixth generation will be better.

I agree with the OP, however if the car hasn't given you any problems, it probably wont for a long time to come. I am at 48000 miles myself after 22 months of owning it, I did like the looks of the 14s at first, but yesterday I parked right next to one and had a good chance to compare it to mine........NOW I REALLY DONT LIKE THE 14s! the 10s~13s put it to shame looks wise, however if the 14s were the only things out there then I for sure would get one.
I would be looking for an older one for a trade in if I were you, I am not really looking to trade mine in yet, however I am considering a convertible, but if I do that then I will only trade for a 12 or a 13, and only if I can get it for the same payment or less is possible.

PS: anyone in the Las Vegas area know where I can find an IBM rag top for sale or trade?

If you don't like the new ones, keep what you have. It's probably paid off by now too which makes it even more appealing

94k is nothing for an LS motor if you ask me. Treat them right and they easily make it to 200k+.

Stopped off at the store on the way home last night for beer. Came out of the store and there was a guy with a 5 series BMW parked near my car waiting. When he saw I was the owner, he piped up "Now THAT is a cool car, I like it better than this" (pointing to his BMW). Told him I was at almost 100K on miles and he noted that I obviously took good care my my stuff..........Get those comments all the time, just part of the perma-grin that comes with this car.

100K is nothing....I'm at 80 and just waiting for 100K so that I can start new mods without voiding my warranty.
