1993 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible


Review

First saw a 40th Anniversary Ruby Red at a Corvette show. Love at first sight. Bought ours a month later w/ < 14 K miles. The car has all the options including ride control and performance axel. The performance is fantastic for an LT-1. The car is all original except for a new water pump and upgraded optispark ignition which was replaced two years ago. CD player belt was replaced this year. No other problems. It's absolutely wonderful to drive, but due to a recent serious leg injury handicap, difficult to get into and out of. It's an experience to treasure. Highly recommend the Corvette to anyone who enjoys driving. You only live once, don't deny yourself one of life's few pleasures.


Favorite Features

Convertible. Head Turning Beauty. Performance. Great fuel economy for the power. Comfortable ride. Easy access to features. Luggage Rack for traveling. Chick magnet for the single guy. Motorhead magnet for the single girl. Fun! Fun! Fun!


Suggested Improvements

Limited interior storage for traveling. High sills make it difficult for entry and exit for older folks like me.

Review

I would like to meet the moron who designed the engine layout for this car. They placed the water pump over the solid state controls for the engine. If the $700 water pump goes, so goes the $1000 engine electrical controls. I have had this car for 4 weeks an have sunk $2k in the car. What a piece of crap. I am going back to German cars.

1993 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe


Review

Bought new and will probably leave in my will. Love this car for its looks, performance and very unique features: true clamshell hood, rollup headlights, steamroller tires and ultra deep bucket seats (it's very entertaining to watch a passenger's ingress / egress).


Favorite Features

Looks, power, handling, clamshell hood, rollup headlights, steamroller tires, targa roof, true sports seats. Very reliable and remarkable highway mileage given the torque and hp.


Suggested Improvements

Tighter body (tough with the composite body panels), better audio system (though you can always just listen to the V-8 exhaust).

Review

We have not had this car a year and it has required almost no repairs - just tires,which you will burn up if you drive without the stability control and are always hammering the gas. For the money this is an excellent car and a true race car. This car is one of the most fun to drive cars I have ever driven. Gas mileage is excellent for such power. The transmission is smooth. Seats are a bit stiff and the ride is much like that of a go-kart, But this car is FAST and the ride is tight. It is very hard to get in and out of. Overall a great reliable car and I have no complaints. The passive remote keyless entry is a super feature and was new this year.


Favorite Features

Massive tourque, excellent handling, great gas mileage. I get 25mpg on the highway! My 4 cylinder Camry only gets 30!


Suggested Improvements

Make it easier to get in and out of the car. Put some padding in the seats!

Review

This car so far has been the most fun car I have ever had. It sports excellent looks, excellent fuel economy, seat slaming acceleration and go cart handleing. It is very hard to get in and out of. Driving this car is pure joy unless you have to get in and out alot. Under hard accleration it literally jumps from 39 mph to 45, and it doesnt hit 3rd gear until it hits 90mph. I found all the computerized ride and drive controls to be disappoining. I dont need a car correcting me for driving like I'm on the race track. It quickly limits your wheels spin and a true posi rear end would have been better than the limited slip they gave it. It's a true racecar


Favorite Features

massive torque, exterior styling. excellent handleing and accleration.


Suggested Improvements

true posi rear end, a quicker release for the removeable top (the ratchet and screws are slow and painful to remove and reattach)
