2002 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 2dr Convertible (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I am a licensed Auto Dealer and bought this car at auction two weeks ago. Saw a row of Vettes sitting in the sun and had to have one. I have owned over 50 cars personally and driven most everything on the planet. No other car has pasted a grin on my face more than this car. It gets more smiles, stares and "nice car" than anything else I have driven including an M3 and 911 convertible. Pure fun.


Best Features

The body style is classic, the engine mated to a 6 speed gearbox. Excellent brakes. Solid, firm feel. AND NO RATTLES EVEN FROM THE TOP WHEN UP. Cannot say the same for Porsche or BMW...


Worst Features

Interior trim quality should be nicer, perhaps a door map pocket. Seats should be bolstered more as well.

Review

Driving the 2002 Corvette 6 spd Convertible is the best automotive experience I have ever had the priviledge to experience.Exhilirating acceleration, tight cornering, smooth ride and exceptional feel in a visual package shared by only a few of the elite sports cars in the world. Add to that the fun of Corvette forums, clubs, road rallies, aftermarket equipment, clothing and plenty of helpful advice and one purchases a complete recreational package that no other car can compare with. It is truly awesome.


Best Features

Looks; acceleration, cornering, heads- up display, lack of rattles, trunk space, tight fit. comfortable seating, great gauges.


Worst Features

shift throw is too long. run-flats too loud and stiff. Interior appearance could be more colorful.

Review

I was lucky enough not only to participate in the 50th Anniversary Corvette Caravan to Bowling Green and Nashville on June 26th. and 27th. 2003. I also was able to participate in the five "hot laps" at Atlanta Motor Speedway on June 25th, 2003. At first I was leery of pushing the car but my Corvette was able to push through and sustain 135 mph around the entire track (1.54 mi) without any shakes, shudders, shimmies or any other anomalies that would decrease my confidence in the car's handling the high speed. She was very capable of going much faster but, the driver was not. THIS IS A GREAT CAR!!


Best Features

The HUD The Performance Handling Package


Worst Features

More HP

Review

Time came to get a new car, just went and got a Yellow Vette. Did'nt even bother looking at another car or color. Truly the American Dream Car. Regret is that I waited this long. Best thrill is to drive down highway on ramps at full throttle and hit 65 in second gear. The only car I know that looks as good as it drives.


Best Features

Six speed trans, highly intelligent instrumentation, climate control (hot Nevada summer day with top down and staying cool no problem) and the AWSOME power. This car needs speed and guts.


Worst Features

Window switch auto down & UP, compass, rear deck for my dog. Tough choice between wife and dog as passenger. Built in Valentine One with display on the steering wheel. Yah, like GM will go for this !!!
