    An ugly over priced car and GM wonders why sales are down. Seems all GM cares about is how many trucks they sell. I will never buy anything new from GM after the last vehicle we got new from them.

    That's an odd critique. I wish I had the budget to buy one. They've grown on me the last few years. Most people I know that have them like them.

    Could have fooled me. It appears these new Camaros are everywhere! Like everything these days, price drives a lot of buying decisions. Who really wants to spend $800 a month on a Camaro? People rather buy their Honda Accord for half the sticker.

    For the last decade or so, the biggest threat to the American "big 3" are...themselves.

    ^ what he said. Overpriced underperforming underwhelming over complicated junk.

    Case in point “AFM” a simple, reliable LS engine for a decade gets over complicated, drinks oil and eats cam and lifters. And they want us to pay how much for it?
    I’ll shut up now

    Funny...when I sat in one...it was the back window that I could hardly see out of. Didn't even come close to filling up the rear view mirror.

    I'm finally starting to warm up to the looks, and there's no question they perform. We'll see what happens to Camaro sales when the new Corvette comes out, might just give the Camaro the shot in the arm it needs. I have no idea what market they're going after with the new Vette.
    There have been comments about vision out of the Camaro. The high belt line doesn't help either. If any car needs all the nanny systems (lane departure, parking and back-up sensors and camera), it's both the Camaro and Corvette.
