Review of the 2001 Chevrolet Corvette

  • Stunning performance for less than $50,000. Need we say more? If bang-for-the-buck is your priority, nothing can touch a Z06.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Ultra-high performance, daily-driver livability, bargain sticker price.

  • Cons

    Some cheesy interior bits, slow kick-down with automatic transmission.

  • What's New for 2001

    The entire Corvette lineup receives a dose of additional horsepower and torque. Z06 model joins the lineup, Active Handling now standard…

Windy wendy is a blast!

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

Bought my 2001 hatchback in April of 2013. Very low miles and looks showroom good. I have wanted a corvette for years but children and a military career precluded adding one to the family. Now with just my wife and boxer dod the time seemed right. A long time dream come true and boy, do I feel blessed. Great car, great price, great dog, great wife! Could it get any better?




Wonderful car

There's no better bang for the buck. I had my C5 for two years and it lost $1000/year in depreciation. If Chevy made all their cars with the quality of this, they wouldn't be going broke. It is a sheer blast to drive, everything is precise. Steering is responsive, gas and brake are solid. The suspension is comfortable and handling is perfect. Plus, and I guess most importantly, is the fact that this car's design will never go out of style. She is sexy. On the otherhand, the car's not that practical because of the lack of room and the low clearance. Maintenance and repairs are pricey, but nothing like foreign cars. Tires are very expensive

What else compares?

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

Commuting to and from work I get 21 MPG and 30+@ 75 MPH in 6th gear. This magnetic red car is a head turner. Cheaper than a Subaru WRX or a Mitsu Lancer and it doesn’t look like a shopping cart! I put Michelin Pilot AS run-flats and the traction improved dramatically over the GY Eagles and noise dropped. For $25k this is a deal. Too bad when car mags do car comparisons they don’t compare what was a $48k new Vette now worth $22-$25 to the new stuff you can buy! The Vette would win hands down. When I get rid of it, it will be for a 2008 used with 3LT auto and 436 hp. Until then I would rather have it than any other car. As a car connoisseur I highly recommend the C-5!
