I purchased a black 2002 auto transmission Corvette with 33,000 miles on it (I wanted a manual, but my left knee is too messed up). I love the car, but it seems like she loses power after hard acceleration a few times in a row. Also, I think the voltage regulator is bad cause sometimes it drops down to 12.3 when I am driving and it also jumps up and down a lot when I step on the brakes. For the car having 350 HP it doesn't feel very fast to me except for when it is first started in the morning. Other than that issue, I totally love the car. I get compliments on it all the time. I love how the sport seats hug me during fast turns. I would definitely buy another one.

Phenomenal ride. I have also dreamed of a Vette all my life alone with the posters in the forums. It definitely lives up to the hype. For a little more dough than a Trans Am or Mustang, it is so much better.

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

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.
Most notable for 2003 is the 50th Anniversary package available on coupe and convertible models. The commemorative package includes Anniversary red exterior paint, a unique shale interior color, champagne-colored wheels and "50th Anniversary" exterior badging with matching embroidery on the headrests and floor mats. Also included in the Anniversary package (or as a stand-alone option on coupes and convertibles) is an all-new Magnetic Ride Control system that provides instantaneous shock adjustment for optimum ride quality and handling. All models also get additional standard equipment that includes sport seats, a power passenger seat, foglamps, dual-zone auto climate control and a parcel net and luggage shade on coupe models.
