Truly having a wonderful experience with my first Vette. Even though it's used, it's still a marvel. Haven't had the Vette long but have not had any bad experiences. Hoping all the bugs have been worked out as it seems to have been in my case. Gas mileage is awesome considering.
This is my 3rd Vette in the last 10 years. The C5 is truly the best sports car value in the world. The 2000 is late enough in the model to have most of the problems worked out. It is also old eough to be picked up at a very good price if you look for it. The car will do anything I ask it to do on a city street or highway, and is more of a joy than the law allows on a country road. . More power, sure, that's what everyone wants. But, this car will smoke the tires in several gears and will top 140mph. How much do you need? The C5 is the best Vette to take on a long drive ever. I get better than 30 mpg on the highway if I try.
The only things that need improvement were put into the C6.
Best bang for the buck with styling
being considered. A few thousand
dollars for a supercharger, and instant
700hp with perfect daily drivability.
Just how the factory should have done
it in the first place to make it
Great looks. Yellow with black top.

Interior upgrades to dash and either
make the cup holder well bigger or get
rid of it.
0ne year later the dream became a
nightmare to this date. First it
started with 5/6 trips for the fuel
gauge sensor, locked sterring, 2
alternators, 4 batteries,3xs
headlight motor, cd player, 4xs body
control module,3xs foglights, 2xs trunk
would not open,dealorship lost my keys,
Leaving a few others out I'm sure. And
the hits keep coming!I guess I have
been blessed until now.
I'm not alone, which does not provide
me any comfort. GM offered me a 10 yr.
warranty to rebuild my confidence. I
want a car I can drive! Not continue to
be at service.PLEASE. What an ordeal.
Guess I've had enough.
