Camaros In General. What's the Maintenance Like?

I'm close to buying the new 2010 Camaro but I've heard from a few people that Camaros in general are a pain to keep up. I've had to deal with a bad car before and I don't want to go through another experiance. It would really help if anyone has any iformation about maintenance on previous year models so I can get an idea for what I need to expect.

If you are a "general knowledge" mechanic, you should have no problem whatsoever.

The Camaro is alot easier to access the spark plugs...than my LS1 WS6. The only things you will need to worry about for the first 10k miles...

Fuel filter

20k
Tires, maybe brakes (front)

30k fuel filter, definately brakes..

How hard? If you have a working knowledge of how to work on cars, there should be no significant difficulty.
