2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)
5700 miles on the 02 Z06. Averaging
25.6 MPG, over 30 on trips. Great
road car, comfortable, pulls moutains
in 6th gear with ease. Digital cruise
is a charm. Car is noisy on rough
roads without insulation but does an
exceptional job of not beating you
up. 1-4 shift around town is a pain,
I find myself either exceeding 3000
RPM or doing a 1-3 shift. It is by
far the most fun/powerful/best
handling car I have ever driven.
6 Speed is awsome, handling is
terrifying, and so powerful you don't
dare jump on the accelerator below 70.
Stickier rear tires. Under almost any
hard acceleration in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd
gear that rear end is coming around.
It is difficult to drive when the
roads are wet and driving on snow or
ice is simply suicidal.
