2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

After owning 2 Porsche Carreras in a row, it was with great reluctance that i viewed the Z06 as an alternative. Yet, the press kept heralding its performance prowess, and new found reliability. Went to a dealer for a test drive, my mistake. How could it actually better a Carrera? Well, after 2 years, it simply does. It still hangs tight, no chassis noises, brakes better, accelerates and outcorners better, and i still can't believe the gas mileage. No, it doesn't enjoy same interior design and quality, what a shame, wouldn't mind paying an extra 2k for them. Yet, it's roomy and more comfortable than it seems. I don't think i'll be going back to Porsche.


Best Features

Raw power. Torque you can live with. Brakes that work. Roomy interiors and usable trunk. Comfortable enough for 3- 5 hour long drives. Still can't believe this thing will turn over 23 mpg on the expressway, WOW ! This auto is trully fun to drive, at the expense of tire wear, of course.


Worst Features

Chevrolet has heard my prayers regarding interiors. The new C6 has improved dramatically not only with its exterior design, but by re-touching its interiors as well. Still, my dream '06 would enjoy more of an "AUDI TT" dash and steering wheel flair. I miss my Porshce/Audi dealer.

2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This car simply rocks. Performance, ride, handling, and looks can't be beat. Breathtaking acceleration and mind numbing ability to stop on a dime.


Best Features

405 HP. No rattles. Evokes a lot of jealousy among competitive make owners. Never boring to drive because everyone is always checking you out.


Worst Features

1-4 skip shift feature is ridiculus and dangerous in city driving scenarios.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Headsup display,sheer brute power. Gas mileage, have got just over 30 MPG on the highway. Runs great on low grade gas, during these times of high fuel costs.


Worst Features

Behind the seat storage pocket for maps etc . More cup holders and deeper. Deeper center console. Exhaust note to tame. Better/softer leather so seats/interior. Elimination of skip shift feature. Wider tires to give a more agressive look.

2002 Chevrolet Corvette 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.
