    Advice on a Camaro

    Hello everyone. Thinking about getting a Camaro. Looking to trade in my Excursion heavily modified turbo injectors arp head studs and countless other stuff. Kinda tired of it looking for a daily driver weekend racer that can be reliable. Heard the ls platform is best for what I want. Thinking of looking at this Camaro 2010 71k miles they are asking 13 k I'd be happy doing a straight trade or maybe add some cash. What do y'all think. And what should I look for thanks in advance.

    FYI Pre 2012 models have a slight issue - If your heater core ever goes out the only way to fix it is the front windshield has to be removed to access 2 bolts on the dash. The GM replacement kits come with a fix for it.

    If that's all I have to worry about that's fine. If you saw the list of failures on a 6.0 powerstroke you would fall back. 🤣🤣🤣

    13,000 isn't a bad price for the mileage, if it is a SS. you will definitely enjoy the car. the only issue will be looking out the windows. the front is a bit low to see traffic lights. you can look at my mrr23 mod thread and see what i have done so far.

    Will ask says 16k miles on the car. That doesn't look like 16k

    Do you think GM did that on purpose?
