Five-Point Inspection: 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible

AutoGuide Five-Point Inspection

This week, the Five-Point Inspection takes a ride in the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible: the sun-loving version of Chevy’s young buck pony car. Like a car review written in jot note form, we detail five particular attributes of a vehicle to highlight those we like and those we don’t like.


Hys D. Luffy says:

agreed.  Won’t buy a car with an interior made by Fisher Price.  

Robert Foster says:

As a 2012 Camaro SS convertible owner, I totally disagree with this review. First, the clutch is not heavy. It is smooth and easy to use. Second, the interior is very attractive and improved over the 2011 model, especially the new smaller steering wheel. You failed to mention the standard power adjustable power seats for driver and passenger. Most sports cars do not have that in this price point. Third, the trunk or boot as you put it, is very usable for a convertible. We used two large soft bags, a small carry on, and a garmet bag for a two week 2500 mile trip , with the top up , with no issues. I have owned many sports cars and the Camaro is a fine car. More importantly, is just a fun car. That’s really the whole point of the Camaro. It’s not meant to have the traits of a vanilla sedan or crossover

Banks says:

 Let me guess Robert… you’re over 50…

Robert Foster 1SS convertible says:

Guess again, Banks

Banks says:

I see. You’re just an old geezer at heart.

Robert Foster says:

You cant “see” me. Go charge your weak Prius.

Robert Foster says:

Now go back to your Prius

Robert Foster 2012 1SS Camaro says:

By the way Luke, I averaged 21 MPG combined on that 2500 mile trip. Including, two-hundred miles with the top down.

It’s meant to be fun you are right Robert . Props to you
