Ridiculous Camaro Review

Check this out. I have lost all respect for this news outlet.

Of course I had to respond to most of it. Feel free to add your complaints.

12 MPG?

Yeah, he was burning the clutch all over those hilly streets. They should get someone who can actually drive a manual to review one. Poor car.

What a dweeb. Japanese Station Wagon vs. 1LE Camaro?

Are you HIGH???? Wait. They legalized pot, right? Now it makes sense.

Hey! Not all of us smoke pot! (P.S. You can't even buy it legally yet.)

Without drugs, it's just damn hard to explain why anyone would do a review between those two vehicles.

I guess he could have compared the Camaro to a bass boat...

"The Camaro was sluggish in deep water..."

No one really needs a 426-horsepower car in Seattle
Nobody really needs air conditioning.

Nobody really needs grocery stores.

Nobody really needs a job.

Nobody really needs a wife or children.

Nobody really needs warm meals.

Nobody really needs a bed.

Nobody really needs indoor plumbing.

Nobody really needs TV's, newspapers, computers, magazines, books or anything that involves the media.

Nobody really needs to read this article.



The guy is from Seattle. That right there is a handicap. Their minimum wage is now $15/hr. They're the only city in the nation dumb enough to destroy their economy overnight. Can anyone really take anything someone from Seattle has to say seriously?

So glad there is someone out there to tell me what I shouldn't drive as a daily car. I drive a 14 2SS/RS and have a 2 year old. I love working on cars and with him, every gear I hit he yells GO!

Actually, what he should have said is the Camaro just isn't for everybody. Most of what he said is spot on. The only thing I find exception to is having to negotiate those steep Seattle hills with a manual stick, just isn't as tough as he's making it out to be. I live in a mountainous area in SW Virginia and hardly ever think about having to shift all the time. Actually shifting in a manual is 1/2 the fun of driving a Camaro. He's right about the trunk space and the rear seat. But as I said the Camaro isn't for everybody.

I think he compared the two because his wife got bored of him and his boring ass rogue and suddenly had the hots for a guy she met with a camaro

He's just trying to make himself feel better about something IMO
