1998 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible


Review

Bought the car used but have loved every minute of my ownership. Only real problem was with the electronic steering lock. Phenomenal storage capability, even with the top down. Acceleration is great...able to beat most of the cars I cross. Great handling, even at high speeds (130+ mph). Car turns heads and garners questions all the time. There is nothing in the world like driving an American classic with the wind in your hair.


Favorite Features

Power, acceleration, looks, being part of the Corvette family...Save the Wave!


Suggested Improvements

Interior still reminds me of a slightly nicer Cavalier or Camaro. Wouldn't hurt nicen it up a bit.

1998 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible


Review

It can run with the best. Great, no major problems. little or no after market parts to become succesful in racing. Scared me the first time I drove it. Lots of Power


Favorite Features

Love the six speed manual, and the convertible top has no faults, just needs taking care of to keep going, just regular maitnence


Suggested Improvements

The rear end could use a little more down force, gets hard to keep on the road after about 120 MPH, but after market spoiler took care of this.

Review

Excellent performance and still good fuel economy. Ride is considerably good for a true sports car. Removeable top is nice and still has adequate luggae storage for road trips. Best feature is the Corvette family and wave :)


Favorite Features

Performance! removeable top, and driving a Corvette!


Suggested Improvements

GM please fix the electronic column lock issue once and for all with a true bypass. Road noise is a bit much but it is worth it to drive a car with this styling and performance. Noisy and hard riding runflat tires. A few more horses are always welcome :)

Review

I pursched this car as a runabout. I grew up with Porsche and have had numberous in the stable and currently have 2 911's. I enjoy the car. It is relatively reliable with no significant events to date except that the battery came apart from the past and leaked down in the engine bay. Upon opening the trunk in the rain, it all pours inside the storage bay. This suspension is alittle soft, so I have to adjust the ride to performance mode to stop from being thrown into the roof. The performance is adequate, the zo6 is probably the better option.


Favorite Features

Front end the roof line and the side


Suggested Improvements

Fix the butt of the car, it is my opion that it doesnt flow with the front and the side of the car.
