No more Camaro...

I sold my Camaro today... It was getting hot constantly,the engine was knocking, and the trans was shifting harder so I traded it in to a Toyota Dealer and we came home with a new XLE camry... (my mom wouldnt even look at Domestic cars...)

Now I get to drive a 2003 Toyota Highlander till I can save up to buy a better car,lame

The only good thing now is I have a way better chance of getting a 5th Gen in a few years so its not the worst day ever but It still sucks

You'll have problems now...

Malibu has the least amount of warranty repairs of any car made, has more room, and gets better MPG.

Sorry to hear the news.

Malibu sales are also up like what 51% from last year. Must be doing something right.

I'm sorry to read about the problems you had with your Camaro. :(

With all due respect to your Mom, her attitude, while maybe just, due to past domestics, is "short-sighted". I'd bet that if she took a moment to look at a new Malibu, etc., her opinion might change.

Hope there's a new Camaro in your future.

I dont really care what my mom drives, shes the one who paid 26k for it(good deal IMO)

yeah I miss my Camaro, I loved it, I even kept the GM door key and the Cig lighter to remember it

and also my Highlander (v6 3.0) beat a 2003 mustang today (V6 of coarse, with Flowmasters,K/N air filter), so that was pretty sick

I feel ya man, My 3.4 was my baby too.. sadly she got bombarded off of the semis.. while I was ine I saved anything I could EVEN the front bumper.. I had the key and custom made it into a butterfly knife/key it will be on my key chain when my 2k10 comes in. High Hopes for your Camaro in the Future, I know how Moms are.. Moms will be Moms.

I have had domestics both Ford and Chevy (5 camaros and a GMC Yukon and one Expedition) and a few Toyotas. I had more problems with the Toyotas than I ever did with the domestics. The toyotas left me stranded. The Domestics never left me stranded anywhere.
