2002 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (5.7L 8cyl 4A)
Although I have only had this car for 5 weeks, I can honestly say I was not
disappointed in it's performance. It is all I had hoped it would be as far as
handling, driveability, looks and comfort. It is definatly a better choice than
other sports coupes in this price range (Boxster, Z3 etc.)
The only issue I have is the dealer installed CD changer was very sensitive to
road imperfections. The new one they replaced it with is better but I am still
not sure if it should be that way. This is a minor thing when you consider the
whole package and what a blast it is driving this true american experience.
Dynomite looks, usuable trunk, great sound system, unbelievable
acceleration, firm ride and steering. Just a great fun car.
Remove the 1to4 shift feature in the 6 speed. It seems to engage when the
RPMs are too low for fourth gear. I think the driver should always be able to
go through the gears and suffer the consequences of fuel economy if they
don't shift at a reasonable RPM reading.
