1997 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

Great driving fun! Good comfort in a sports car. Attention to detail is excellent. Truck space better than most passenger cars. It's hard on tires. Electronics need overall improvement and are expensive to repair. For the first model year of a completely redesigned car, it is Grandpa's dream come true! I would buy another Corvette in a heartbeat!


Best Features

Fast, fun, and attractive automobile. Great seating and comfort in a true sports car.


Worst Features

The computerized systems still need work. Check reliability in newer versions of this American dream car.

Review

I have had many sports cars, Mustangs,
Camaros, Firebirds etc... This
Corvette is the best all around for the
money. If you don't need the back
seats then you get great looks, awesome
power and crazy comments. And
considering the rate of depreciation of
all other american sports cars on the
market the Corvette is the best bang
for the buck.


Best Features

Car handles extremely well, and has Lots of power, the Corvette is underated for power, I have had 3 LS1 vehicles and this engine by far has more power, I even went from a 6-speed to an A4.


Worst Features

The interior needs some work, also the removable top has a lot of air noise.
