    "The new Camaro...."

    is still a car for adolescents. I understand it has "iconic styling" (?) and we're trying to recover our automotive glory days, but it's time to grow up.

    "One Is Enough"

    Sounds like a pretty decent if not formidable car. Now please don't muck it up by making a Pontiac version, then a Saturn version, then a Buick version etc. GM is the worst when it comes to diluting product with too many spinoffs. Enclave, Outlook, Acadia, Traverse-why?

    "16 mpg? "

    "Mileage is a respectable 16 mpg city..."
    C'mon, really? That mileage would "respectable" for a full size truck, not a car. The new Camaro looks great but the world has changed.

    "16 mpg city is good"

    CJV - What kind of mileage to you believe that passenger cars are getting now days? A 2009 V6 Honda Accord gets 17mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
    This article states that the Camaro SS gets 16mpg city and 24-25mpg on the highway. Chevy is essentially getting the same fuel economy from their 426hp 6.2 liter V8 as Honda is getting with their V6...

    "grow up to what Joe?"

    What do you want to grow up to Joe? If you are at an age where you want to recline in a Prius, good for you. Some of us still enjoy our cars, want to have fun with our cars. There is a fun factor that you obviously are oblivious to. And it has nothing to do with age, I am old enough to remember the first camaros. Congrats to GM for making a great looking, fun car that is thoroughly modern in handling and mileage, yet remembers the looks and the fun from the past.

    "Avg Joe"

    Joe...get off the site....CJV.....get off the site. Stick to Consumer Reports. This is an enthusiast website and apparently you aren't enthusiasts. Anyone with a heartbeat should get excited about a new rear wheel drive V8 sports car. If this thing was called the Nissan 370Z I bet you would not have made that comment. And as far as a full size truck getting 16 mpg what world are you living in? My parents have a V8 Mountaineer and it gets 12-13...COMBINED and thats from the on board computer. . . We don't stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing
    -Ben Franklin
    And no I am not even a Camaro fan I actually love Mustangs but even I can admit a great car when I see one.

    nice n manly

    A 2009 V6 Honda Accord gets 17mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
    The V6 ratings were announced last week and Camaro beats it with 18/29..... Which one would you rather drive?
    It's about time we give some credit to the new products of the D3 instead of just bashing.

  • Steven Posted: 3/23/2009 10:14am PDT

    "Mileage "

    According to honda.com an Accord V6 gets 19 City/ 25 Highway. Get your facts correct if you're gonna trash each other.

  • Steven Posted: 3/23/2009 10:16am PDT

    "Mileage (Revised)"

    Typo - Accord V6 = 19 City/29 Highway.

  • CAMARO24 Posted: 3/23/2009 10:17am PDT


    That's OK. Joe and CJV are probably the 4 dr sedan drivers, gripping the wheel with 2 hands, slow driving in the passing lane. I'll toot when I pass them on the right in my new 2010 2LT RS.

    "To "Avg Joe" & Gary"

    Get off the site? So, if my opinion differs from yours, I shouldn't post it? As I said, it's for adolescents. Is the rear of your car still jacked up like in 1977? I hope you and Burt Reynolds enjoy your toupee and T-top together. As to not being an "enthusiast", I am, but not enthusiastic about this car. The SS is 3,913lbs, with you in it, well over two tons. Sports car? what?
    Finally, Camaro SS lapped Germany’s Nürburgring in 8 minutes 20 seconds. 2008 Cobalt SS — made its way around in just 8:22. So, what's the big deal?
    It comes down to the sheet metal, retro styling, which isn't enough of a reason for me to get excited about this hyped car.
