I have the v6 convertable with 5 speed
in blue/black top/leather interior.
No mechanical failures with car. No
data on 5 speed aside from my own-no
problems, notchy,occ missed shift.
Insurence is expencive, a new Corvet
would only be $7.50 more per month, an
RX 8 would be $2.50 less per month.
The v6 with 5 speed is about as
quick as the v8 with automatic, and
provides enough performance to satisfy
most people who want v8 power.
The convertable top is excellent-
shows no wear after 4 years of taking
it up and down daily in the blazing
To sum it up- a bargain used
performance car that is dependable and
fun, but expencive to insure.
The convertable top is the reason I
bought the car, and is still my
favorite feature. Power is excellent
for a v6 5sp. My fuel economy is 22-
25mpg- not bad for someone who likes
to excellerate rapidly in city traffic.
Ergonomics of interior, and plastic
quality in interior. Front seat
