C5 problem

Great handling, great power, fun to drive in the canyons, great gas mileage for a car with this much power.......what's not to like? Most all c5 owners have had "column lock failure " and had to call a tow truck at least once to get it to the dealership and usually a hefty repair bill. The solution may be as simple as a bad or slightly discharged battery, check it first. And, a permanent repair harness is available in the aftermarket for about $50. Get the harness before it happens, leaving you stranded. Only takes a few minutes to install.

So Far, So Good

I have dreamed about owning a red Corvette convertable since I was a young boy. At the age of 53 and after selling my parent's home when they passed away, I finally had enough disposable income to purchase the car of my dreams. I think of my parents almost every time I drive the car, I'm sure they are smiling down at me, knowing how 'Corvette crazy' I've always been. I live in the upper midwest so I only have about 6-7 months a year to drive it so I do so as much as possible. The car had 34,000 miles on it when I bought it and in the 18 months since I've owned it I have put on another 15,000 miles. Except for a bad O2 sensor and an ocassional check engine light glitch it has performed well

Love This Vette

This is just a wonderful and fun car to drive. Everywhere I go and I pull up people are looking at the car like it is a rock star. This is my second Vette, the first was a C-4 model and this baby blows it away. GM needs to start working on building their cars like they do the Vette if they want to stay in business

This is my 3rd Corvette (1975 Stingray, 1986 Coupe)and the best one yet. It handles great and the technology is cool. Looks best with the top down. I have the pewter/black/black. I added chrome wheels and exhaust tips. It's really an eye catcher! If you haven't already, buy one. You'll love it!

The Best C5 Corvette 1998 Torch Red Convertible

Can't asked for better corvette in the C5 Class performance and best all around corvette now for the money maintaining value heading towards higher collectible car value now and Reliability. I had mine for over 6 years traded it in for 2017 C 7 stingray convertible also having 3 C4's 1987, 1988,1991and 2 C3's 1980 corvettes I rate this C5 one of the best I had over those c3's and c4's. The car exhibited a lot of the typical C5 problems that all C5's seem to show over the years being 20 year old car. I would recommend any one having the chance to buy a C5 Corvette by all means do it you can't go wrong if the car has been taken care of and well maintained it's well worth the corvette venture. I traded this car in November of 2017 for 2017 brand new Corvette Stingray Convertible.
