Grocery Getter 2SS/RS Camaro
General Vehicle Information
This 2010 2SS/RS, 6-speed, LS3 Camaro has been my daily driver for over 8 years and 100,00 miles. It has been incredibly reliable and is used in all but the worse snowy or icy conditions. Traded in a '99 Porsche Carrera 4 911 before it blew up!
Vehicle or Project Description
I sold my BMW and purchased a 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 coupe. I drove the car all year long but had quite a few problems with it. I finally got to the point where I just couldn't track down a recurring CEL stating that there was a miss-fire on cylinder #2. I swallowed my pride and took it to a shop that specializes in Porsches.
They told me that there was a crack in the cylinder wall which was allowing coolant to seep in causing the CEL. This was a fatal diagnosis. The owner of the shop said that I couldn't drive the car so I had it flat-bedded back to my house. I took it down to the local Chevy dealer in hopes of trading it in on ANYTHING.... just wanted to get something out of the car.
Thankfully the engine stayed together as they test drove it and I got $12,700 towards the Camaro... I only paid $15k a year ago, so I was very happy.
