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

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

Red, hot, and sassy

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Corvette

This car is used enjoyably for daily driving to and from work--plus leisure. The C5 has, by far, the sleekest, sexiest, cleanest body style. This is our third Vette, and although there are newer models, we simply love the looks of this car. Have added heated seats, powerful sound system, blue LED interior lights for dash and all controls, and navigation system.

2nd vette owned and loving

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Corvette

While growing up my dream car was always a Corvette. I purchased My 1st vette in 1998; a 1986 Convertible, and as much as I did enjoy "My Toy" It was time for my turn with a C5, I loved the newer sleek look and power, and I had an opportunity to purchase a 2000 at a beyond great price; and in practically mint condition,and get a great trade-in price for my 86' it was love at first drive! The 2000 coupe's look, feel, and handling, exceeded my expectations. The upgraded interior is luxurious, sporty and much more comfortable than the C4's. The power and handling is breathtaking. I was also amazed that I was getting incredible gas mileage with the LS1 motor. My favorite most reliable car yet!
