Only a Vette
By sean.c on


1998 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible


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!

Best Features

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!

Worst Features

Electronics, steering column lock, cup holder!, shifter, GM customer service.
