Nothing matters when you have a rental Camaro. It’s surprisingly fast, sure, but at its heart, it’s still a rental car. Get the insurance? Don’t care. Rev the crap out of it? Don’t care. Accidentally call it a Mustang? Sure enough, don’t care. It’s a car that exists to be beaten on, as Regular Car Reviews explains.
This 2017 automatic V6-powered 2017 Chevrolet Camaro RS is a fine enough example of modern muscle. It’s reasonably quick, and has blocky, aggressive styling that calls back to the muscle cars of yore.
But let’s face it: you’re starting off with a car that’s often cared for so little that it’s the single most misspelled model name on Craigslist. Not even the engine could interest Mr. Regular, because it just doesn’t matter. Then add the fact that it’s not yours on top of that and you get the idea.
It’s no wonder this thing smells pervasively of vape smoke with less than 3,000 miles on the odometer.
By the stats, it’s by no means the fastest car in the world. But you drive it like it is, because whatever you break is the rental counter’s problem—not yours.
