Review

Great looking car. I have spent over $5000 dollars fixing BCM, steering column lock, tpms, master cylinder in shift clutch system , headlights, windshield wipers and washer system comes on and will not stop out of nowhere. Poorly engineered car. Electrical problems. Look at the forums. Everyone is having problems In many areas. I have driven many Honda’s and never had one problem. BMW’s are great cars. Mercedes as well. this car is junk. Since last review I am still having problems. Many forums highlife these issues but many owners are amature mechanics. I am not. I rely on dealers. I cannot believe that GM would take ownership of this vehicle. I would be embarrassed.

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


Review

It's a good sport car, it's fast and fun.

Interior is chintzy. Center console indents easily and stays that way when you rest you arm on it. Oil pressure gauge failed. Shifter top piece barely stays on.

Valve spring shattered due to tcsb which lead to an O2 and catalytic converter failure. $2500 it ran fine. (42,000 miles)

It made a weird squealing noise under acceleration shortly afterwards, steering box was leaking. $1000 it ran fine. (44,000 miles)

Computer malfunction caused my battery and alternator to fry. $500 ran weird. Next day steering wheel locked up for no apparent reason, towed to dealership that would re-fix faulty recall repair, only dealership in my area that was honest enough to agree it was a recall. $0 ran fine. (54,000 miles)

A week after this my car started leaking oil and threw a P0420 code, about $2000 later, I sold it.

It was a fun car, but I would recommend getting something a little lower maintenance.

Review

Always wanted a Corvette, almost bought a 1995 with 50K but it was beat and abused.
Found this 2002 Convertible, good price, low mileage.
Fell in love almost immediately.
Great Looks and acceleration, a real classy looking sportscar.
For a car 12 years old it looks better than most cars its age.
Everything works inside.
Noticed some wear on the outside edge of the drivers seat due no doubt to how you have to get in and out of this low slung beauty.
Engine runs smooth and flawlessly on the highway.
Headlights could be brighter as well as the daylight running lights but all in all this is a great car.


Best Features

Interior layout, Corvette Emblems in strategic places, Convertible top cowling, under the hood, etc. Engine Performance.


Worst Features

Multi CD Disc Player (Single Disc Player, Really????) No cheap plastic (Cup Holder, ashtray door, etc.) Bigger center console.
