1999 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible

Review

I had one of the very first C-5's in Hawaii I bought in late 97. Would'nt "kick in" when punched. Dealers couldn't figure out problem. So, ordered a 99 6 speed convertible, with Z51 suspension. Took a few months to arrive in Hawaii. At first I thought it was the wrong color. The way the sun hit it, an almost purple pearl came thru the Navy Blue Mettalic paint. It was beautiful. What was Chevy thinking when they discontinued that color. Now have 14k miles. No major problems. Then got the "check traction control" message, with rough running. Computer module fried. Strongly advise getting extended warranty. Otherwise, the best vette ever.

Best Features

Performance and options. HUGH trunk for a convertible. Fits 2 full sets of golf clubs - WITH THE TOP DOWN! It's the ONLY roadster or sports car in the world that can make that claim. Please don't make the trunk smaller with the C6, Chevrolet!

Worst Features

A Z06 convertible. If no Z06, then at least 400 HP. Bring back the Navy Blue Mettalic. The replacement blue belongs on a Camaro or Monte Carlo. I get bombed with compliments on the color. What were you thinking Chevrolet?
