1998 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible


Review

Bought the car used but have loved
every minute of my ownership. Only
real problem was with the electronic
steering lock. Phenomenal storage
capability, even with the top down.
Acceleration is great...able to beat
most of the cars I cross. Great
handling, even at high speeds (130+
mph). Car turns heads and garners
questions all the time. There is
nothing in the world like driving an
American classic with the wind in your
hair.


Best Features

Power, acceleration, looks, being part of the Corvette family...Save the Wave!


Worst Features

Interior still reminds me of a slightly nicer Cavalier or Camaro. Wouldn't hurt nicen it up a bit.

Review

It can run with the best. Great, no
major problems. little or no after
market parts to become succesful in
racing. Scared me the first time I
drove it. Lots of Power


Best Features

Love the six speed manual, and the convertible top has no faults, just needs taking care of to keep going, just regular maitnence


Worst Features

The rear end could use a little more down force, gets hard to keep on the road after about 120 MPH, but after market spoiler took care of this.

Review

63000 miles, no real issues. 28+ mpg
on highway, 165+ mph capability.
Trunk will hold two golf bags and
luggage for two people for three weeks.
We have driven as many as 960 miles in
a single day and the car is
comfortable and easy to drive.
Active handling is a benefit.

Indy Pace Car colors and trim is bold,
but tastefully done. Many, many
thumbs up, photo requests and
discussions when stopping for fuel.

Would do it again.


Best Features

Power, gas mileage, trunk space, run- flat technology


Worst Features

Cup holders - Need two, not just one. and both should be deeper to hold cups in place.

Review

Best vette convertible I ever owned.
Had a gauge burn out and that's it in
62,000 miles.
Changed tires to Firestone Firehawk
for better all round performance. Car
turns heads and always gets comments.
Love the red/tan color and it's a
pleasure to own. Had over 30 vettes
and this is the most pleasurable yet.


Best Features

Looks, speed and ease of driving


Worst Features

Better quality top and a tad more interior room

Review

The Corvette, When I Was 13 Yrs Old I
fell In Love. 1973. The Price at those
times, Seemed To be, Completely Out of
My Ball League..They were Pricing out
between 5 an 8 k....NEW! I Later fell
Into Some Restoring, Still Keeping My
Eye On Everything, All The way Down,
Till They Put a Convertible Top, With a
Trunk,Came to My Eye.


Best Features

Most favorite feature, Is really the Convertible top And a Really Accesible Trunk.The Power An Apeal Say's The rest


Worst Features

The First Thing I Did with Mine, WAS put some chrome on It an Some Stripping,. At That time a hard top, Wasnt an Option,Wished It would have.
