1998 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 2dr Convertible


Review

The 1998 Corvette Convertible is a great car ! Fun to drive, great gas mileage, awesome looks and most of all it's American Made! The car is very well engineered, reliable and I think it is the best sports car value for the money without question. GM will have a major undertaking if it plans to top the C5 with the upcoming C6, on the other hand if the C5 is this good, maybe the C6 will be totally spectacular!


Favorite Features

Performance, comfort, styling and the Corvette legacy, need I say more.


Suggested Improvements

A better way to protect the rear deck from being marred by the convertible top, an option to turn the "skip shift" feature on and off, and factory chrome exhaust tips.

Review

This is my 3rd Corvette (1975 Stingray, 1986 Coupe)and the best one yet. It handles great and the technology is cool. Looks best with the top down. I have the pewter/black/black. I added chrome wheels and exhaust tips. It's really an eye catcher! If you haven't already, buy one. You'll love it!


Favorite Features

With the top down, you still can keep a conversation with a passenger at 70mph or hear the stereo perfectly. A lot smoother ride than the other Corvettes I've owned. Analogue and digital dash features are a great combination, especially the tire pressure readings.


Suggested Improvements

I can see that the seat bolsters are going to wear (at only 16,000 miles) because you rub against them when you are getting in, and I'm an average size. I wish there was a selection for speedometer on the digital part of the dash because this year didn't have HUD as an option.
