Pros: Telescoping steering wheel
Cons: Cargo privacy skirt
Advice: Drive comparable vehiclesThis is my second Corvette and its better than the first. The 'heads-up' visual imaging provides greater safety. The telescoping steering column provides greater driving comfort and allows the driver to tilt the steering wheel lower for more comfort. Stability and road handling have been enhanced creating a very comfortable ride, yet quick as a cat when necessary. I test drove a Viper, Jag and Accura NSX. The Vet won.
Advice: If you're doing alot of city drivingPrepare yourself to get sucked into your seat. This car gets up and goes. Love doing hill and mountain driving as it is glued to the road. Then hit a straightaway and let it loose. At 120+ mph it is effortless. First and second gears are a blast, 50 and 80 mph at 6k rpm. Radio has poor reception. Get the 12 cd changer. Best sportscar for the buck.
Pros: Heads-up display
Cons: low clearance at nose
Advice: This is nott the Vett of the 70's or 80'sPerfectly balanced handling. Accceleration is awesum. Really can't break the rear end loose. This is a race car that can be de-tuned to cruise on the freeways and city streets, just change the ride setting with a switch and you are running those windy backraods like a champ. Not for the timid.
Pros: The 5.7 liter 350 horse power V8
Cons: The long heavy doors
Advice: Get the 6 speed manual transmission.The 2002 Corvette coupe is the absolute best bang for your buck in the premium sports car class. It combines throw-you-back-in-your-seat acceleration with tight handling and enough leg and head room for my 6+ foot frame. I actually enjoy driving to work every day!
Pros: Digital Controls
Cons: Horn Sound
Advice: Buy Buy BuyOn my test drive i took it to the nearby drag strip. this car can get up to the 175 +mph in about 15 seconds. my personal views on this car- Performance- Top Speed easily reached and kept Comfort- this car isnt meant for people that are over 6 ft 6 Potential Buyers- nice car but the black interior is easily dirtied. also if you attempt to customize the rims DONT it will throw off the cars settings. becuz the car has a 1 inch difference between front and rear. this care will be practically useless oncee customed rims are put on. but once the rims are put on you can get the car re set up for that size. Speed- fast accel and great top speed Closing Statements- this car is great and everything is great about it
