Pros: heads up display
Cons: I can't find anything wrong yet!
Advice: Expect great finance rates from ChevyThis car is one great machine! A real head turner with its great looks. This is the car to get if you are performance oriented and want a pure American muscle car. You will be very satisified for years to come.
Pros: Convertible top
Advice: Buy the Convertible... it is so much fun.This car is amazing. It provides the performance of the Ferarri 355 Spyder for 1/3 the price. It has more confort and is far more reliable. The quality is excellent and the gas milage on the highway (27 mpg)is great. Quarter mile times of 13.1 seconds, top speed of 174 mph for only $54,000.00, WOW!!!
Cons: wish it was faster
Advice: send it to lingenfelter for a superchargerThis car makes you look for an excuse to go anywhere! Too much fun!
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!
