    Test drove a 2010 Camaro today and really enjoyed. I'm tired of having only my taco for work and for the weekends. Just wanting to know if anyone has one and what they think about theirs? I'm looking at the 3.4l v6.

    I like them.I can't afford a v8 at this time but don't think I could do the v6. The v6 does have over 300hp.a v6 convertible is $38k.they make some nasty v8 models

    I test drove one yesterday and the blind spots are HORRIBLE! I only drove it for about 5 minutes but still. The v8's would be awesome to have but they're just out of my price range. With traction control off, I was able to do some cool stuff in the v6. I think it'd be good enough for me minus the blind spots

    I had a 2010 RS with the V6. They are nice cars, plenty of HP with either engine and decent mpg's. They are hard to see out of but you get used to it............I just missed having a truck, so I sold it and bought a Tacoma......dont regret it at all.

    The blind spots and knowing if you accidentally run up a curb or something the damage you can do sucks.

    Thanks everyone for posting. I definitely need to have a truck so I'd be keeping my tacoma if I got it. I'm going to go test drive it again either today or tomorrow because I wanna see if there is getting around those bad blind spots and to see if I can get a good price on it. The V6 definitely seems to have enough power for me though. and 25 mpg combined I believe? or around there.

    Have you gone and driven the Mustang? It doesn't have the blind spots that the Camaro has and it is cheaper, faster, handles better and gets better gas mileage. It looks sweet too!

    The second picture below is what the Mustang looks like from the driver's seat of a Camaro! :p
