    Looking to buy a 2002 ss

    I am looking to buy an 21k miles 02 ss. I am a newbie to these cars. Can someone please give me some advice on whatto look for on these cars when inspecting. So far i have heard to check slow window motors,, pitting on chrome 10 spokes, anything other characteristics to check with these cars??? Thanks in advance

    i wouldn't not buy a SS or any LS1 because of slow rolling windows, if it is a good deal, you can always get new motors.

    I say look for low miles - close to stock. the better physical condition it is, the better they probably took care of the engine as well.

    I would get a CarFax report. There are cars (of all types) out there now that have been flooded in hurricanes and reconditioned.
    Or it could have been wrecked for that matter.

    I've heard lately that they may not be all that reliable, but I'd get one anyway and you did.

    I have an '02 SS with low miles (30k) that I bought brand new. It's still totally factory stock all the way down to the windshield wiper blades.

    I love it and went for about a 2 hour drive to nowhere and back just this evening.

    If you find one like that I would say go for it.

    Good luck.

    I haven't purchased it yet. It is on ebay under completed items for 2002 camaro. It's silver with chrome 10 spokes and center exhaust. I am waiting for approval to post the link?? If anyone feels froggy,,, feel free to check it out and give me there input?? Thanks. It appears to be factory stock other than battery and grille. It was "supposedly" owned by a female gm service writer.
