Always wanted a Corvette, almost bought a 1995 with 50K but it was beat and abused.
Found this 2002 Convertible, good price, low mileage.
Fell in love almost immediately.
Great Looks and acceleration, a real classy looking sportscar.
For a car 12 years old it looks better than most cars its age.
Everything works inside.
Noticed some wear on the outside edge of the drivers seat due no doubt to how you have to get in and out of this low slung beauty.
Engine runs smooth and flawlessly on the highway.
Headlights could be brighter as well as the daylight running lights but all in all this is a great car.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my z06. Fun to drive, comfortable, fast & a great handling car with all the comforts. My favorite "passenger scare" is the 270 degree on ramps here in SoCal! Build quality on exterior is excellent. (AND if you care!: Gas mileage is exceptional on the fwy ...between 27 & 30 depending upon speed). I have had the car in for work...mainly interior problems. I'm also on my 4th battery. I also changed the shifter the 2nd month I owned the car. Overall I'd say it's had less problems than MOST vehicles.

I've owned this car since new. It is the second Corvette that I've owned. The car is extremely fun to drive, handling and acceleration of this car exceeds most driver's abilities. The ride is surprisingly good for such a high performing sports car.

This car is freedom. I bought it to use in parades as well as have the time of my life at 66. The car handles like a dream, the top is a no brainer and easy to get down. Lots of trunk room for a sports car. And does it get the comments!

I purchased a black 2002 auto transmission Corvette with 33,000 miles on it (I wanted a manual, but my left knee is too messed up). I love the car, but it seems like she loses power after hard acceleration a few times in a row. Also, I think the voltage regulator is bad cause sometimes it drops down to 12.3 when I am driving and it also jumps up and down a lot when I step on the brakes. For the car having 350 HP it doesn't feel very fast to me except for when it is first started in the morning. Other than that issue, I totally love the car. I get compliments on it all the time. I love how the sport seats hug me during fast turns. I would definitely buy another one.
Are any current Corvette C5 owners experiencing lots of electrical problems - issues with modules, computers, etc. My car is almost 4 years old (1998 Convertible) and it has been failing very often. L...
I just traded my 1991 Vette for a 2002 Vette and the thing I have noticed is a lot of road noise with this car. I was just wondering if the run flat tires are the reason for the sound. All of the C5 ?...
