2004 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I absolutely love this car! I traded in my 1977 Corvette for this one. It is absolutely fun to drive. Super peppy!


Best Features

Color and styling.


Worst Features

Wish that there was a bit more accessible storage up front, ie, for CD's. Also only one cup-holder?

2004 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This car is a joy to drive and is far more driveable on a daily basis than most people would ever imagine. Fuel economy is eceptional, usually from 19- 23 mpg city, depending on how aggresively I drive. I really don't have a lot of data on highway mileage (I haven't done any long trips), but on 200 mile trips I have gotten 27 mpg highway. Other owners have told me they have gotten over 30 mpg. This car has also been problem free for the 4 yrs I have owned it. In recent years, other cars have caught up with it in performance, but 0-60 in less than 5 seconds and 13.1 at 107 mph stock is still respectable in the 1/4 mile. With performance mods, this car can hold it's own with anything out there.


Best Features

HUD and active handling.


Worst Features

None.

2004 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 4th vette (2 C4's, 2nd C5). Almost bought 06 C6 without driving then found it was too tight (me 6"3'). Sold 99 FRC to get this one. FRC was base model with Z51, 04 fully loaded!! Car is solid as a rock. Maybe get a C7 if more interior space (or I shrink). Best of the 4 I've owned !!!


Best Features

Non-Z51 ride, heads-up, auto lights / rear-view, dual climate etc.


Worst Features

More interior space, better stereo, shorty shifter, high gloss chrome rims, HID head lamps, satelite radio

Review

Fix the shifter, more comfort, nicer interior? Are you kidding? Fill it up, strap in, and smoke 'em! This is not a luxury touring car. It's a high speed, awesome sports machine. Serious speed and fun. There is no other car that delivers this kind of fun & performance for the money. If you want more junk to play with, go buy a Mercedes.


Best Features

Looks, power, speed.


Worst Features

Chevy has done a super job. Personal opinion, the C6 was not a body improvement.

2004 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought new in 2004. Fun car to drive, very happy overall. Has been very sound mechanically. Only minor problems; blown front drivers door speaker, drivers side seat bolsters needed replacing, passenger side power window regulator needed replacing. All fixed under warranty. Biggest issue: GM doesn't fit their performance cars with adequate brakes. Prone to warpage, had same problem with 2002 WS-6 T/A. I have a set of Baer Brakes on order to fix the problem. Still, best perfomance car value out there! Can't wait to get a new Z06!


Best Features

Performance, style, comfort, features. Run-flat tires!!! It's nice not having to stop to change a flat, especially in AZ in the summer! But, you definiely pay for it when you have to replace a tire!


Worst Features

Many were addressed in 2005 model. Cup holder that actually holds cups, second cup holder, bigger better brakes, hatchback auto-pulldown/latch.
