How do you guys feel about this buy? 2001 Z28 75k miles.

Hello all,

First time poster here. I just thought I would share the clip on youtube that originally got me into the Camaro's The Camaro is featured at the 2:44 mark. My favorite comment is "that camaro has no time to play" haha.





Anyways, the time has come where I am looking for a little bit of a step up in terms of my daily driver. I am currently eyeing this 2001 Z28 (auto) with 75,000 miles. I attached the link below. On the page, they also provide a carfax which leads me to believe that the car is in decent shape. My main concern for the car is the typical domestic reliability in high mileage cars. I have heard great things in terms of everything except reliability which seems to be so-so. Anyways, if you can give me some feedback regarding the reliability, cost to own and repair, real fuel mileage (is mid grade acceptable?), and the like, it would be greatly appreciated. I would love to own this car tomorrow but I cannot afford to fix it every other weekend. My commute mainly consists of highway driving as my work hours are 6a to 2p.

P.S. The car has to come from a dealer. Too long of an explanation to get into it. lol

Thanks!
