$50,000 lemon
By johnf13 on


2001 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


It is the worst car I have ever owned
as far as quality. At 3500 miles the
oil pump went, and at 7200 miles the
car caught fire while I was driving it
due to a defective fuel line. After
rebuilding the car, several problems
with the engine and AC. Lost AC,
brakes and developed significant new
oil leak all within 48 hours. GM
refused to acknolwdege problems, and
has invited me to pursue lemon law
claim. Out of 12 months I had car, 9
in the shop. Would not recommend car to
anyone.(Have had 2 Corvettes in the
past) Notiified NHTSA re: fire and
sudden brake failure, believed to be
related to boost.

Best Features

Great car when not on fire or when brakes work

Worst Features

Try to stop spontaneous combustion while driving. Improve Chevrolet Customer Relations Dept......try not to tell customers wife has hid alleged oil leak by cleaning it up before customer has chance to see it...
