2003 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The car is well built and fun to drive. Very comfortable on long road trips and mileage is surprisingly good. GM could have built in more performance but that is easily fixed with after market bolt on changes. Run flat tires provide piece of mind because there is no spare tire but they are noisy. Will buy future models agains. Very nice car.


Favorite Features

Heads up display, removable top


Suggested Improvements

Stock performance disappointing

2003 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

America's true sports car. This car is a dream to drive, and makes one look for any excuse to get out of the house just to cruise. One plus about owning my spiral gray vette' is how people you've never met take the time to stop and say "nice ride", and the turning of heads as you cruise down the road; truly a rush and morale builder. I normally trade cars every 1-2 years, but finally I've found a car worth keeping.


Favorite Features

Overall performance and comfort are exceptional. The HUD is great! It would be hard imagining having a sports car without one.


Suggested Improvements

Reduce road noise, which I've read can easily be done by simply changing from the factory installed run flats to another name brand such as Firestone or Michellin. A second cup holder and a change holder would be a definite plus.

2003 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Impeccable performance and sterling appearance. The anniversary red paint projects a dazzling sparkle when in the sunlight and nicely augmented by the champaigne coloured wheels.


Favorite Features

Suspension, steering, acceleration and comfort


Suggested Improvements

Annoying chatter from underneath when stopped, in neutral and clutch is not engaged

2003 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Awesome machine that is one incredible ride. Seemingly unlimited torque, road handling that defies the laws of physics and a body that is stylish, sophisticated and sexy. Polished rims, telescoping steering wheel, HUD, Bose sound system, 12 CD changer, 29 MPG in 6th gear, 22 CF of trunk space for under 50k! I thought I died & went to heaven.


Favorite Features

Definitely 2nd gear or is it 3rd or maybe 4th, the sound of an American V- 8 passing through 5000 RPM on the way to the redline, Electron Blue color and an easily removeable translucent top.


Suggested Improvements

Two cup holders that will keep a can of diet coke upright in the drivers compartment.

2003 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

A great red Corvette that turns heads every where I go. The adjustable electric seats with strong back support make traveling much more enjoyable than the old Vettes. Visibility is not bad. Gas mileage is amazing for a car like this. The 6-speed transmission is the only way to go.


Favorite Features

Removable coupe top--I did not like the convertible's look. Exterior styling is as good as it gets. Relatively comfortable ride. Memory feature is great for setting position of seats, steering wheel, and radio, and makes vehicle entry and exit much easier.
