Some of those idiots are pretty firmly convinced that a car sucks if it can't keep up with something $20,000 more expensive than it.

I guess what I fail to understand is that those guys, as well as the magazine comparisons, always seem to try and compare the Camaro against cars (IS350, Mustang, Genesis, etc..) equipped with a "sport package" or "track package". I guess GM should pair up with Pedders and get a Camaro track suspension option out there too.

I wouldn't poke fun at anyone else's reliability when you drive a German car.

They should compare the specs of a Camaro SS and the Lexus ISF.

The ISF is a cool, fast little car. But I think the SS gets better mileage, and it's a bigger car.

The ISF has a more roomy back seat, but I'm getting a Camaro... and the back seat is for whatever I wanna throw back there.

That wouldn't be fair... See definition: "Wipe the floor"

I admit I didn't read anything over there. I'm not interested in the opinions of die-hard Lexus drivers.

^^^My thoughts exactly. All the cars were close in comparison, so it all boils down to looks and price. For me, I pick domestics over imports anyway because we need the industries here and in Canada. So which would you pick? The Camaro or a glorified Camry?

I don't know what makes you think he drives a German car, I just did a search on his posts and didn't see anything like that.

Anyway, you don't drive a German car, so much as you take it out when it's willing. I would know, I've got one rotting in my yard right now, I have to bring it in for warranty service...

It sure rides and handles nice, though, and the interior layout is very comfortable.

No doubt about the craftsmanship, they are nice cars for sure.

As for owning or servicing them, I'll sit that one out.

That's what GM needs a car that goes toe to toe with a lot of cars in the same price range. I think this is a good thing, more people will consider an American car that have not before.
