1998 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe


Review

I didn't mean to buy it, but the test drive sold it. I'm 50 now, and wanted a Corvette since I was a teenager. I've never had a car that has received so much attention. Mechanics come out and talk about it. People in the waiting room talk about it. My good friend shook my hand to tell me it's the best thing I ever bought. My wife and daughter want to drive it all the time. People at work talk about it. People on the road act like they want to race. Don't buy this car if you dislike attention.


Best Features

Looks, perfomance, and many guages which convey a lot of information


Worst Features

None

Review

Excellent performance and still good
fuel economy. Ride is considerably good
for a true sports car. Removeable top
is nice and still has adequate luggae
storage for road trips. Best feature is
the Corvette family and wave :)


Best Features

Performance! removeable top, and driving a Corvette!


Worst Features

GM please fix the electronic column lock issue once and for all with a true bypass. Road noise is a bit much but it is worth it to drive a car with this styling and performance. Noisy and hard riding runflat tires. A few more horses are always welcome :)

the car has been perfect.

Review

I pursched this car as a runabout. I
grew up with Porsche and have had
numberous in the stable and currently
have 2 911's. I enjoy the car. It is
relatively reliable with no
significant events to date except that
the battery came apart from the past
and leaked down in the engine bay.
Upon opening the trunk in the rain, it
all pours inside the storage bay.
This suspension is alittle soft, so I
have to adjust the ride to performance
mode to stop from being thrown into
the roof. The performance is adequate,
the zo6 is probably the better option.


Best Features

Front end the roof line and the side


Worst Features

Fix the butt of the car, it is my opion that it doesnt flow with the front and the side of the car.

Review

Bought my Vette about 6 months ago.
Prices are really coming down, since
this is a 5 year old car; still the
most current body style though! The
performance is awesome, totally fast
enough stock, with enough potential for
modifications, if you want to take it
to the track. Will outhandle me no
problem (I don't have a death wish).
Gas mileage is great and the car is
MUCH more comfortable than the C4. One
of the prettiest cars on the road.


Best Features

Targa, Looks, Performance, It's a Vette Man!


Worst Features

Front Tire leaks, wish it had telescoping steering wheel (came out in 99), No HUD, Wish you could get the LS- 6 in the same package
