1999 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe


Review

Purchased in December 2014 with 18,893 original miles, all numbers matching, all options, automatic, and Magnetic Red. With the exception of a 1967 427/435 owned years ago, this is the fastest factory stock Corvette ever made. Comfortable, fun to drive, excellent design mechanically and interior, great Bose sound system, and generally the car that makes people stop and go, man I need one of those beauties.


Best Features

Everything about this car screams "drive me". Quiet ride and great fuel economy are just added benefits. The Magnetic Red coupe with the smoke "romance" top in place make you drool over the sexy appeal of this body style.


Worst Features

Why change anything on a vehicle you can't find anything to complain about?

Review

I love this car! I have had no trouble with it mechanically and it gets great gas mileage. Who would have believed? The car is fast and fun to drive! I am completely satisfied with this car!


Best Features

The engine really performs on 89+ octane and still gets good fuel mileage. I like the headsup display.


Worst Features

Monochromic rearview mirrors. When you are sitting low, you really need them when someone in a truck pulls up behind you with their headlights on. I don't understand why they are not standard on this car.

Review

I have owned Corvettes all my life and this is just another in a long line of Corvette's that I have owned. I was told my other Corvette owners that once you drive a C5 you will never want to drive an LT1 again. They are correct. I drove a C5 and 9 months later, after searching very carefully, I purchased my 1999 Corvette Hardtop. It handles great, and I love the 6speed. It provides a nice comfortable ride, has a lot of power, and does not allow for much outside noise. It is a very functional and reliable Corvette with great curb appeal. A daily driver that turns heads.


Best Features

6speed, the trunk area, and the handling.

Review

My second Corvette (1991, I've had a great deal of fun with both the "01 and the '99. After reading "all Corvettes are red", I realized the '99 must be an unusually fine automobile and I believe it is. I drive it the speed limits, and when I brought it back from buying it in Austin, Texas (some 1000 plus miles) my average mpg was 36. However everyone wont be able to get 36 mpg, because the car just asks to be driven hard.


Best Features

Its lowness and style.


Worst Features

The seats door, side bolster gets damaged if you slide in and rub the plastic covering. I think they should charge more and build seats out of leather.

Review

If you have or plan to buy a Corvette, you better have a fat pocket book. I just got rid of my 1999 Corvette because I was tired of putting money into it. Although it turns heads and is fun to drive it all boils down to that this car is junk, especially for a "hand made" car. Mine was not a daily driver and was garage kept. I'm even anal about having a spot on it. All scheduled maintenance had been done. Maybe I got a lemon. All I can say is never let your extended warranty expire. My Corvette had 25,500 miles when I got rid of it. Problems? Bald Goodyear tires $1350 for Michelins. Bad window motor $600. Fuel gauge not working $979. New gas tank $715.


Worst Features

None - You keep the car. I don't want another.
