As I mentioned in a another thread, we checked out the Camaro at the Portland Autoshow. If I were to describe the base v6 Camaro in one word, it would be: Holy mother Mary what a PIECE OF CRAP!!!.. Ok that was more than one word, but honestly I was flabbergasted at how cheap this car looked and felt. The pictures below only tell part of the story, view them at your own risk:
Whole car shot. What first grabbed my attention was the wheels. Was I seeing this right? Painted blacked out iron wheels with gray painted lips?
Yes, my eyes were not failing me:
Cheap BFGoodrich Radial T/As.. Even with Armor All they looked cheap..
Engine hood shot... I don't know what it was but everything in the engine bay looked cheaply put together. Notice the overly large engine cover, perhaps to simulate a bigger engine underneath.
Here is a side shot of the rear with the trunk open. Now you first think when you get ready to open the trunk that you are going to have a nice big trunk opening to make loading easier. ... but let's take a closer look here....
ok , first thing I noticed was the felt padding on the trunk... it gives you an idea of how small the opening of the trunk is in comparison to this car size...
and viola!! a shot of two small bags in the opening of the trunk. To put this into better perspective.. these bags are about 12" x 4".. Yes, the trunk opening was ONLY about 24" in total width!!!
Interior was equally disappointing... Cheap plastic used everywhere, I knocked on the door panels and they sounded hollow, it reminded me of knocking on wood, literally.. the seats were, shesh, I dunno, they weren't cloth exactly.. almost a neoprene type cover... but cheaper, the thread count must have been really low or something..
Interior shot... plastic galore...
Overall this car was very disappointing.. Hyundai may not have the cheapest 300hp RWD sports car but I can guarantee you they have one of the best valued 300hp sports cars.
