2002 Z06—Better Than You Think…
By n938b on


2002 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


The 405 hp Z06 is a terrific car. No
fan of the Corvette since mid-year
Stingrays, my first drive in a C5
changed my opinion instantly. Solid
without the cowl shake, squeaks,
and rattles of the past. Low sills,
analog dash, comfortable seats.
it was the greatly improved rigidity
that made me a believer that
Chevrolet finally got the car right… or
close to it. If you haven't driven one,
don't let old perceptions preclude
consideration of this terrific
performing automobile.

Best Features

The small block is incredible. 405 hp provides heart-stopping acceleration, yet is forgiving in town and on the highway. On a 7-hour trip from Elkhart Lake, WI, I averaged 30.4 mpg with A/C and cruise set just below 70 mph. Stability control and traction control are seemless.

Worst Features

The car needs an interior. The radio is the same one used in S-10 pickups. A 4-speaker stereo is okay, but it's hardly state of the art. How about a garage-door openers, satellite radio, OnStar, and side airbags would provide value to a great car.
