Review

I've had this car for almost 10 years and it still runs great and looks great! People always ask me.."What kind of car is that","Who makes it","That's a nice looking car",etc.I have nothing but great things to say about it and other people do as well. Passengers can't believe how quick it goes from 0 to 40,50,60mph. Great on gas! So much fun to drive! Put the top down and everyone is checking it out! Also,I've had the car for almost 10 years. I got in a very bad accident with it(another driver's fault,nothing to do with the car) and I truly believe its safety features saved my life. Air bags worked right on contact,seat belt locked me in place,etc. Not a fender bender! Best purchase I ever made!


Best Features

My favorite features are really the way the car moves.The way it drives. It's sporty, yet practical. Best feature by far is the way it manuevers and grips the road.


Worst Features

After having it for almost 10 years, I'm sure the interiors of similar Chevrolets are updated. If not, update the interior.Console could be updated. Make it more shallow. It's too deep. I'm sure it's meant to help with storage/organization. It's wasted space.

Review

1997 Convertible LS.Bought it new in
05/1998. Rarely in shop. Have spent
maybe $1000 in non-warranteed work. A
blast to drive. Every day driver.
Holds five passengers. (name another
american convertible that does that)
Huge trunk for a car its size. Have
vacationed in it with the wife and 3
kids comfortably.

Review

I have had this car since 1997. The
only complaint that I can say is the
roof leaked in the begenning.
After getting it to the dealership
numerous times, the problem was
finally solved.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the automatic top. It's so easy to put down.


Worst Features

The front seats are difficult to push up.
