6 speed manual convertible
By carguy2021 on
1999 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible
I loved this car!
That being said, I had some serious issues.
I bought it with 44k miles, and owned it through 65k miles.
Right away, it was popping out of 6th gear.
Luckily I had an extended warranty.
This required a trans rebuild which was $5-6k.
I had an issue with the steering column lock motor -- it failed, requiring the car to be towed to the dealership.
The welds on the exhaust break over time, requiring repair or replacement.
Other than the problems, the car is smooth, insanely fast, and gets great gas mileage - I got as high as 33 mpg at 70mph.
The stereo is amazing - Bose.
