A bargain thrill ride
By Brian on
1999 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe
I bought my 'vette used with 45k miles on the clock. Its been a hoot to drive this car when I can get in open area. It's a monster on the track, and the engine is very flexible with a superwide forgiving power band. The low end grunt makes getting it going off the line a breeze, and it has more than enough power to lay down rubber into second gear. The trunk is actually large enough to be useful for day to day driving. In fact this is my only car, and it works very well for that except for the rare occasions when I have someone flying into town. If you're looking for a powerful yet civilized ride for your day to day grind, this is it.
The electronic stability control is great. Prevents a lot of oops when you get aggressive with the loud pedal. The driver information center (little text display screen) is very cool too.
Interior build quality could be a bit better. After 60k miles things are starting to come apart a little.
