I'm an Aircraft Mechanic and this is similar to a cockpit so I feel right at home. Ride is rough but it's a sports car, what do you expect. 6 speed tranny is great.
My Vette kept draining the Battery. Went to several shops that couldn't find the problem. I finally hooked up a test light in series with the battery terminal and pulled the fuses one at a time till the light went dim. The Bose Radio has a short. So I agree with the other reviewers. Lose the Bose.
This is my second Vette. The first was an 82 Collector Edition. It was a good car and a lot of fun but had major problems. This car Easily gets 30mpg On the highway if I use "cruise". The car was sold new in Germany to a military person and shipped back here in '97. It's in great shape uses NO fluids of any type and ahs had to have no repairs since I bought it. Red w/black int. it's a real eye catcher and a lot of fun that costs me near nothing! I would only trade it for a newer one. I'm totally sold on Corvettes! Dollar for dollar, the best sports car in the world!
I bought this car as 14 years old with
just under 36,000 miles. It looks and
rides like just off the show room floor.
Red with Red interior, 6 speed and all
the fun you can pack into the CD with
Beach Boys music. It is ALL AMERICAN low
end grunt with V8 horse power! Gas
mileage is great on the highway as 23
MPH and city driving at 18. My Jeep only
gets 18 highwat and 14 city. Other
claims of Vette milage like a Honda
civic are just not true.
6 speed shift with a real clutch, none
of this automatic stick shifts like the
German car producers promote.
I have owned 6 Corvettes.. all have had
the "Delco Bose" sound system.. It is a
piece of junk. They all have given me
problems and must be the highest
warranty item that GM makes.
I bought the car with 15,000 miles and
one year later have 25,000 miles on it.
It is a lot of fun, although a pain to
get into. Once you are in it feels like
you are wearing the car. I average 25
mpg on the road with my foot in it.
Where else can you get this much power
and still get respectable gas mileage?
Awesome acceleration, great looks, and
the attention it gets.
The car has been improved. My only
complaint with the car is the harsh
ride, but it is a Corvette and not a
Cadillac. If you want a smooth ride buy
