"I have the 3.8 liter 5spd manual version of the 4th gen camaro. I have owned it about half a year now, and I am totally hooked on it. Plenty of snap for a daily driver, gas mileage is typically around 28-30 miles per gallon if I keep my foot out of it in the city, and the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned. The 3800 was one of the most reliable v6 engines ever made, and it shows here, with the exception of the plastic intake/gasket issues, almost nothing needs to be done besides oil and filters to run these engines into the 200k range. Best of all, these 4th gen camaros are going for next to nothing right now so they make for excellent first cars or secondary cars. Don't believe everything you are told about the lack of wet weather traction in these cars either, I don't have traction control in my particular car and on the snow and ice my camaro holds on better than my s10 when its in two wheel drive. Rear wheel drive is fine, just make sure you keep appropriate tires on your rig. Overall an amazingly fun vehicle to drive, an amazingly easy vehicle to own, and an amazingly affordable vehicle to buy. Buy one now. You won't regret it."
