Pure enjoyment

With about 1000 miles on the odometer now, the '13 SS vert has been pure enjoyment.

I can see where some would read the boards and be concerned about buying. But this is one nice ride. Great stress relief to drop the top and open up the throttle.

Highly recommend the V8 over the V6 if one can possibly afford the extra. Also recommend stick over auto.

Great car.

+1 Love my convertible and v8. I always have this fear that one day I will get one of those sunny day rain clouds over me.

I'm on my third 5th gen convertible--one automatic and two manuals. All have been a blast to drive, the manuals a little more so.

All I have to say to those who are concerned about the tops - buy used from a private party. You can verify in person if the top HAS issues, and check dealer warranty claims to see if it HAD issues.

Still loving my vert~

bwk1971, is your Camaro black? Mine is Blue Ray Metallic, but is so dark it looks black at times.

I also got the white rally stripes. But beige interior and top.

If you can look past any of the issues, it's a great, fun car to drive.

32,000 miles on mine, 21,000 of those in the last 10 months...

Mine has been mostly trouble-free (except the top) knock on wood...

Thanks, Reggie! Good to see you here and GM/Chevy taking an interest. Really love these cars. They are the new classics, I swear, except many more are being saved I think. Pure conjecture though on my part. But who cares, I always wanted to own/drive an SS convertible something with the biggest V8 - mission accomplished and ongoing!!

I completely agree with you. 2013 SS also. I have 960 miles since I purchased mine 3 weeks ago. The convertible is the only way to go, unless you are tracking the car. This is a great comfortable cruiser with decent handling and power.

3100 on my odometer, and I could not be happier.
L99 here, have had plenty of MN6's, I am satisfied to put it in D (Or Maybe S) and go!!!

My thoughts exactly.

11.5k miles (bought at 7700), and I have the top down as much as possible.
