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


Bought the car with 3 miles on it, I
ordered it Oct 2000 and took ownership
in Jan 2001. I had the dealer to changed
the oil and rearend fluid topped off
and/or changed. The oil change was free
and the rearend cost me about $100. I
had 3200 miles on it. I never checked
the from that point until I changed it
myself at 7000 miles using Havoline
syntheic formula 3. I put in the
recommended 6.5 quarts. The low oil
light came on at 8900 miles. I checked
it and it was quart low.

Best Features

I likes driving the car, the power and mpg so much, that I am willing to sell it. I will send it before the oil becomes a real problem.

Worst Features

Get rid of the fold up lights. What is wrong with the oil? It is not for using Havoline, which is made by Texaco not Mobil 1.
