2002 Chevrolet Corvette: 55K And Still Going Strong
December 20, 2010
Our 2002 Corvette has passed 55,000 miles (sorry, I missed the requisite photo op). This means we've put about 13,000 miles on it since the January introduction.
Interesting aspect: the car's been dead reliable since we sorted out the pinging issue. No electrical gremlins, no parts falling off, no BMW M3 alternator/final stage unit failures or Ferrari 308 flat-beds. Oh, what's that sound right now? That's me knocking on wood. But so far I'm impressed. If you had asked me at the start of this test how much trouble an eight-year-old Vette Z06 would encounter after enduring a year in our test fleet, I would have guessed at least a couple things.
