Large heavy car. Needs it to cart my ego around. Anything lighter would float

I AM NOT complaining, I love the car just like it is. I just don't understand how the car can feel large. I think it feels nimble and very comfortable.

Not what I'm talking about. Ask buyers, not critics. Lmao
most buyers could give a rats ass, don't get me wrong there are some hardcore enthusiasts that hate the weight, but they are a small group.

Well people who aren't on the taller side. I am 5 9 and my knees were hitting the seat, and with the sunroof, my head hit the ceiling

The challenger has a lot of room in the back seats. It has as much as some 4 door cars i've been in

I'm 6'4 and have headroom and legroom to spare. if you can't fit, adjust the darn seat and tilting steering wheel.

Yes the car is big, but you know what, if it was perfect then everybody would own one. It's perfect for the people that bought it. It's outselling the Mustang and Challenger, even with the supposed horrible large size, people still want it more than the competition. Case closed.

I went through every one of these and most are a bunch of joe schmoe's opinions of the car in forums or guys commenting on actual blogs. Some are actual excerpts taken out of context and others you listed just compare the Camaro to other NON-muscle cars (i.e. japanese sports cars) which couldn't be any more obvious of a comparison when it comes to weight/size.

Of course you don't think it feels big. You drove a Yukon. If you came from driving a tank, you'd think your Yukon felt small. Anyone coming from a sub-compact, compact, mid size, or even some full size autos will feel like the camaro is large.

We measured the garage bays to make sure it would fit before buying it - it IS large! It's almost as long as my husband's Silverado, and longer than my Montero. No complaints, though... Thankfully, the garage had plenty of room - I'd hate to leave her outside!!

I read a "journalist's" review who's primary complaint was the shift knob was too big.

The size is perfect why would you want anything smaller. the camaro is sexy. and who gives a sh$# what the people write they probably cant afford one.

As for the post about the ss being a turd, id love to see what that douche drives probably a scooter. not to mention you know people love the new camaros i see heads turnin everyday never gets old. hehe

I was being sarcastic!! The car is big but yet small and if it was that big one could fit in the back seat that was older then Six. I have yet to understand why there is a back seat...
