2004 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have always wanted one,"Why did I wait so Long?" this is by far the most exciting investment I have ever made! The wife and I had been discussing the idea of buying one and she kept putting me off, she went out of town for the weekend:) you guessed it! I went out and bought the car of my dreams!still married! she actually really likes to drive it herself. I have absolutely no complaints except not enough pretty days to take the top off and just drive! since my purchase it seems like I have found a new group of friends, they all own Corvettes and like to hang out and cruise.


Best Features

The horse power! I recently went on a 1100 mile trip and averaged 34.3mpg @ 80mph. WOW! the hud is neat, never have to look down, might hurt if you get pulled over by a policeman who knows about vettes! no excuses!


Worst Features

None that I can think of!

2004 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Well, this is my third corvette, first a C3 - 1980, next a C4 - 1992 and now this C5. It is incredible, the improvement over the C4 is staggering. The car is a monster and handles like a dream. I wanted a convertible, but I thought I wanted a C6 because of the higher HP. However, after driving both, I decided on the C5 (2004) because I thought the interior was much nicer and roomier. I really felt the C6 interior was "cheapened" compared to the C5. Some have complained about "noise" from the run- flats, but I don't experience that problem. All in all, dollar for dollar, this is an awesome car!


Best Features

6-speed, windows automatically opening upon putting top down, automatic or "memory" seat and steering wheel settings upon entering and exiting vehical. Fast, handling, and did I say fast?


Worst Features

Louder stock exhaust, has been my comment since the C4's. Z06 has much better sounding exhaust.

Review

I'd wanted a Corvette since I first became aware of cars at 13 (in 1966!). Finally got one at age 50. Bought mine new in Spiral Gray with every possible option. Other than replacing the battery in the first month as a preventative measure and fixing the gas tank (common problem) in the first year, this car has been "bullet-proof". I live in an area where there are multiple exotics, Porsches, Ferraris, etc and my car gets as much, if not more, attention. I love it. Fast, great looking and a virtual time machine making me feel 16 again.


Best Features

Everything about it! And the "Corvette Wave" is cool, too!


Worst Features

Yes, it seems a bit cheap on the inside but I can live with it. The stock run-flats are awful!

2004 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned and driven this Corvette for almost 5 years. There is really nothing as much fun as a top down cruise in this car. This car was a daily driver for the first 2 years and then a weekend garage queen since then. No issues or problems just routine oil changes. 33,000 miles and loving every minute.


Best Features

Style, heads up display, factory magneisum wheels, power, & waves from other Corvette owners.


Worst Features

Run flat tire are noisy and top up air noise above 80 mph but this is a sports car....who cares.
