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


My 04 Corvette Convertible came with chrome aluminum wheels, magnetic suspension, memory seats, head up display and 18K miles on it,

The C5 Corvettes are about 1 inch lower and 3 inches longer than the C6 Corvettes. Riding over speed bumps is a problem as well as parking up to concrete slabs.

The C5 is lighter than the C6, because the engine is smaller (5.7 liter vs. 6.0 and 6.2 liter).
The LS1 engine is more reliable than the LS2, but no match for the LS3.

Got a dealership window sticker from the Corvette Museum. List price 55K.

Best Features

Smooth ride with the magnetic suspension. Great handling from lightweight engine and body. Comfortable seats and large trunk. Run flat tires. Easy manual convertible top.

Worst Features

The twin gas tanks each have an electric motor which can fail. Better to have one electric motor for both gas tanks like the C6.
