Excellent ride for the money

by from El Paso, TX on September 3, 2010

World of difference between the C4 Corvette ad the C5. If you are looking for an upgrade at a great price choose the C5.

Tremendous All-Around Sports Car

The car (C-5's Corvette Coupes) simply can't be beat. Power, control, daily drivability, reliability, fit, finish, comfort, appearance, the looks it gets, and all the great and functional features that come both standard with the car...and then all the factory options - if you're lucky enough to find one with most of them. What a difference from the older Vettes, in finish, rigidity, handling and none of the annoying noises, sketchy handling and squeaks either. The car seems to be made to spec. "as is" without needing any modifications. I've been 180 in mine, blinding 0-60,100,150+ drags and there's not much out there faster for the money, that has the practability, room, comfortable ride for both driver and passenger, AND even luggage friendly (coupe/targa model). It's a tremendous car that performs as smooth as it looks sleek. Super for cruizing or track-like action. Get yourself a good radar/laser detector and keep the car quiet as is, without adding any noisy or otherwise any un-needed modifications. Stick with a low-key color and you'll get thumbs up from CHP's as you blast on by. Out of the box, the C-5 Corvette Coupe just can't be beat. Save even more by picking up a well-cared for used one. Just respect the power and the G's it can pull upon agressive driving - wow. It is THE American Super Car. I've driven mine over 80k miles and no complaints.

The car is amazing, engine pulls like a mother, stops and corners very well, and looks good while doing it. Is it perfect? No, it follows road imperfections a little too much for my liking and the steering is a little numb, but despite these issues, the interior is laid out well and the trunk on the convertible is usable with the top up or down. Overall definitely a winner.

PROS: Beautiful styling Excellent handling and overall performance Very comfortable power seats with lumbar adjust Lots of legroom Car is tight and solid even after 15 years and 4 owners! Coupe hatchback is excellent for loading/unloading Lots of room in back - 3 in-floor storage compartments Good gas mileage for a performance car CONS: Must be very careful going in and out of driveways (low) Fairly significant road noise (EMT tires at 30psi) Cup holder inadequate......we replaced with aftermarket

I purchased this 1998 c5 about 4 months ago from the original owner with 66, 300 miles. I absolutley love the looks and driving of this car, however I have had to replace the shifting cable (automatic), oil pressure sending unit, right rear wheel hub bearing, water pump, thermostat, hoses, and now getting ready to replace the knock sensors, They are notorious for corroding on various GM motors, You have to pull the intake manifold to get to them. I knew before buying this car being 17 years old with low miles it has sat quite a bit and knew I would have to replace some parts. I just hope this beautiful doesnt keep me turning wrenches more than turning the wheel driving it. I am beginning to become discouraged because it seems as soon as I fix one problem, within a week or two another problem pops up.

The Corvette can turn heads and can also be fast when you want it to, but the gas mileage isn't so great. You might be able to get about 20 on the highway, and not even 14 in the city. But with a stick shift the gas mileage is pretty good. This car is very fast and can be dangerous in some conditions because of the amount of power and the lack of handling in the possy rear wheel drive.
