Looking back from day 1

Just wanted to know if you guys have any regrets buying a camaro? Would you buy another one in the future? How do you feel about the money invested in your cars?! Do you regret not buying something else?

For my first car I am happy, still get excited to drive the car everyday.

My next car will be a v8 camaro though, and i'll use the 6 as my daily.

I was asked this question Saturday. The man said he was a Ford service manager and currently has a Monkey Super Slow.

No regrets here. The Camaro fits our needs perfectly. No issues.

The Camaro is great locally and on road trips. We were camping at the time, everything we needed fit in the car.

No money invested. Only the usual, never ending, car payments.

I would do it again without another thought.

The only regret is I didn't go ahead and get a SS from the start. Loved the 1LT, but it was just a 8-month stepping stone up to my SS.

I regret not spending the extra on a 2SS. There were only 2 1LE's within 300 miles of me at the time and I chose the less expensive 1SS. I then added leather through the dealership and it has been a nightmare. Almost 4 months later, I am still getting the leather issue resolved.

Very happy with my 1SS/RS.
Added the Bluetooth module and console gauge package within the 1st month of ownership.
Engine bolt-ons and Pedders suspension inserts have made this car "mine".
I would create this exact car again

Just like others have mentioned. I regret not getting the 2ss 1le when I had the chance. Now I have to wait. And theres no hope for a 13 1LE anymore. They seem to be all sold in my area. Other than that, the 1LT is awesome. Responds very well..

Regrets?
similar to many others, my regret is not getting it right the first time. 2LT ---> 2SS/1LE... but its ok, as the $$ loss was worth the price of complete satisfaction for me.

Future Camaro?
Very possible. Depends on my needs.

Investment?
only if you mean investing in happiness... Camaro's drain $$ for sure.. gas and mod bugs

Regret not buying something else?
Not at all.. Nothing comes close when looking at other cars for same value or less.

In 1993, I bought a new Z/28. In 2002, my wife and I traded the Z/28 for a 2001 WS6. Now in 2013 we sold the WS6 outright, and bought the 2013 1SS 1LE. For 20 years I have driven a Camaro or a Firebird, and I do not regret any of them. The 2013 is the finest one of the bunch, but I do not regret any of the cars. I have always bought exactly what I wanted so I do not have any problems driving the cars for 10 or more years.

No regrets. This sounds like a regret and it's not, but last time I buy a black one. But I love the car. And yes I plan on buying another Camaro, so i garage this one and break it out for special events, when it has about 50k miles on it, maybe a 6th Gen? Depending on when they come out.

HUD would've been nice but my finance situation choice was 2ss or 1ss 1le. I think we all am agree which is the better choice for same price

2nd 5th Gen and the only regret I had was buying a coupe in 2010 and not waiting for the convertible in the first place. Not that I didn't like the 2010, it was a blast, we just prefer a convertible.
No regrets buying my 2012 Convertible at all, 14 months and 14,500 miles of permagrin! Including the 2010 make that 44 months and 42,100 miles of permagrin!!!

My only regret was that I didn't do more research on getting a v8 rather than a V6. I didn't even consider getting a V8 as an option, when in actuality I could have gotten one. But I'm extremely happy with my V6, but my next camaro will definintly be a V8.
