1992 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 2dr Convertible


Review

I bought this 1992 beauty 6 months / 8000 miles ago, at 17000 original miles after 10 year storage in Indianapolis... drove home to Vancouver, Washington via El Paso and San Diego... 4000 miles in 13 days... Got 30.1 mpg and didn't use a drop of oil... Now at 25000 miles and 12 years of age, car is flawless, with a history of zero repairs to date, still on original spark plugs, dry oil pan bottoms (no drip or leaks), not even a rattle... every-day driver, averaging 22.3 mpg around town with perfect performance from the 300 hp LT-1 5.7 liter, 6-speed manual, 3.45 axle drivetrain... "Hats Off" to the Bowling Green contingent of General Motors!!!


Favorite Features

Cosmetic finishing is excellent, noting the upholstered and carpeted door panels and right dash vs. plain plastic on newer models. Only negative lack of luggage capacity in this C4 convertible.


Suggested Improvements

The sport seat of this model has a hip- level cusion extension projecting from the seat back... This takes an unavoidable beating on driver entry / exit resulting in unavoidable excess wear...

Review

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.


Favorite Features

6 speed shift with a real clutch, none of this automatic stick shifts like the German car producers promote.


Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

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.


Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

Have a 1992 Convertible with the removable fiberglass top. This car has been great overall. I am relatively rough on cars (acceleration etc) and the vette holds it's own. The tranny went around 78K which was a big suprise (as my brother's 1987 has 150K miles and is still on the original tranny). Even with the tranny I still think this car will last another 3 years easy.


Favorite Features

I love the handling and acceleration. With the top down on summer nights it gives you a great feeling of utility and enjoyment. Engine is VERY reliable!


Suggested Improvements

Make sure the C6 has a smaller back end like the 1984-1996 models did. I really do not think a Vette should need to carry suitcases etc. GM needs to keep it a true performance and style car.
