98 Vette Ragtop with the six speed. Unbeatable performance-to-dollar ratio. Bought it with 17k miles on it; the Delco 12 CD-changer never has worked, the steering column lock failed first at 18,000 miles and then again six months later. Both times got no help from GM (dealer and corporate), $500 per repair out of my pocket. Finally found a company out of Texas that sold an aftermarket bypass and had the local Vette shop install it. Problem solved. The performance and status outweigh the GM quirks. After my experience with GM customer service I would NEVER again purchase a GM product...except, of course, another Vette. Go for the extended warranty next time, I'll need it!
Performance! Your arrival anywhere is an event. Utility: the trunk swallows my huge ice hockey bag, even with the trunk down. Try that with the M3!
Electronics, steering column lock, cup holder!, shifter, GM customer service.
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
Power, acceleration, looks, being part
of the Corvette family...Save the Wave!
Interior still reminds me of a
slightly nicer Cavalier or Camaro.
Wouldn't hurt nicen it up a bit.
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 :)
Performance! removeable top, and
driving a Corvette!
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 :)
