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


Review

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.


Best Features

Performance is amazing, leading to several driving classes. Heads up display once you get a day with it is truly much safer than looking down to dash area. Stability Control or Active Handling is a must in a new car if you want active safety.


Worst Features

As noted by others, 2nd cup holder in the C6 means GM is listening. 400 HP will be nice in the future, too.

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


Review

Ride is excellent, as if on rails. Performance is outstanding as is handling. Some road noise from the stock tires, but it is tolerable. Six spped shifting is very crisp but could stand to be a shorter throw design. Overall review is that it is an excellent choice for a performance car!


Best Features

Would have to be the Head Up Display (HUD) and the Sport Seats.


Worst Features

Front end spoiler is a little too easily scrapped on moderate dips (like driveways) would like to see it less susceptible to damage.

Review

I have wanted a vette all of my life, and I am thrilled that it turned out to be such a great car! It was everything that I expected/hoped it would be. My only problems with the vette are as follows: 1) Worst cup holder in history. It sucks big time! The engineers that were involved with the cup holder should be fired immediately. I drive an hour a day, so I like to have a place to put my coffee. But to some, this may be no big deal. But C,mon! How hard is it to design a cup holder that can actually hold a cup??? 2) Interior design needs to be spiced up a bit. Not bad, but needs to kick it up a few notches.


Best Features

Performance. Drives and handles awesome. Heads-Up display is the coolest feature....especially at dawn or night.


Worst Features

CUP HOLDER.....CUP HOLDER......CUP HOLDER....Did I say CUP HOLDER.

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


Review

This is my second Corvette, had a '99 prior to this. What a great car! Not only is it a great car that get's attention, but the hatchback allows me to haul all sorts of things without a problem. I've hauled a large coffee table, a treadmill, a 55 gallon aquarium with wood stand, and 2 large barstools (not all at the same time of course)! The car is very comfortable to drive for all heights and sizes, has every feature for comfort, and at an average of 22.3 miles per gallon, I am happy with fuel effeciency as well.


Best Features

Removable glass top, hatchback space, comfortable ride.


Worst Features

Only issue thus far has been the rubber gasket on the glass top, sometimes doesn't go back in place properly, causing wind noise.
