Review of the 2002 Chevrolet Corvette

  • Stunning performance for less than $50,000. Need we say more? If bang-for-the-buck is your priority, look no further than the awesome 2002 Z06.

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

  • Cons

    Some low-grade interior pieces, can't get the Z06 in a coupe or convertible.

  • What's New for 2002

    The track-ready Z06 model gains more power and performance. Electron Blue replaces Navy Blue metallic on the color palette, while Dark Bowling Green metallic gets dropped.

Should be faster

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

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.




Awesome ride

This is my first Vette. Like some other posters I never thought I would own one of my own. Lots of power when you want it. Not bad gas mileage when you're cruising.

Phenomenal ride. I have also dreamed of a Vette all my life alone with the posters in the forums. It definitely lives up to the hype. For a little more dough than a Trans Am or Mustang, it is so much better.




Great value sport car

This is my 3rd Vett, they keep getting better, fantastic power, great ride and unbelievable gas mileage for a car with this amount of power. No mechanical problems to date. Lots of after market performance parts available. Cost of service is very reasonable.




Fun beyond your wildest dreams

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

Interesting thing is that I never thought I'd own a Corvette, not on my radar. However, when looking to replace a daily driver it turned out to have major advantage, I fit. At 6'3" it is surprising how many cars I can't either get into or sit in comfortably, notably the XK8. The C5 at least in it's later years is a bullet proof touring dream. Loads of room, great mileage on the highway with the 6 sp and my wife noted how comfortable it was on it trip home, 1350 miles to get back to CA where none of the dealers would go below MSRP at the time.
