Dream Car For Sports Car Lovers

2001 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)
Although I have had only one year of driving this car I can honestly say I grin ear to ear every time. With the top off, the glass roof or the matching coupe look, this car looks like its going 100 MPH standing still. It has easy access and egress even for the older folks. Twin power adjustable seats snuggle you into a comfy cockpit. Once you let out the clutch on this amazingly forgiving manual 6 speed the car purrs away just like a Honda or Toyota. The car is that easy to drive!. But step on the gas the car transforms into a jet on wheels. The active handling keeps you safe and straight but lets you fly. This car is AWESOME
Active Handling turns you into an expert driver when your not. HUD lets you keep your eyes on the road. The awesome power is in your right foot. Use it wisely. All that and it gets 32 MPH (when driven at the speed limit).
Two problems. The one problem is a thing called column lock which GM won't/can't fix. This requires expensive repairs and can reoccur. The second is 1st - 4th override where at certain rpms you must go to fourth from first, You can buy aftermarket workarounds for both but Corvette should fix it
