Overall, this is a great car for the money. Comfort: You're going to feel the road, and what it's truly made of. So get ready to dodge those potholes. Performance: With a base of 350rwhp you will definitely get where you need to be. Great engine, like a rock! Handling: I was very surprised with this cars ability to handle. I figured since it was built for the straight-a ways, the handling wouldn't be as superior as a AWD car, but it can keep up. Exterior: It's a vette, you get what you get! Features: The options are there! It just depends on your preferences. Value: Great value, especially if your looking for $$$ to hp ratio. Reliability: Started off rocky with some clutch cylinder issues but, those were the only problems, nothing directly related to the engine itself. Final words: Great buy for the money! If i could use half-stars when rating this car, add a +1/2 star to every rating!!!

2001 CORVETTE

Bought a 2001 Corvette, always wanted to purchase one but somethging always got in the way, kids, mortgage, house repairs, etc. Now that I have had the vehicle for a couple months it is great. The looks, power, handling. I bought from a private seller and it was everything he advertised on Cars.com. I would use the service again to find a vehicle. If you every wanted a Corvette do it. The interior is comfortable once you adjust the seat, the H.U.D. steering column set up for you. The only complaint is only one beverage holder. I went on-line and found an after market two cup cup holder that was designed to fit a Corvette. Now I have three. Besides that it is great. The convertable top also is easy to work with once you get the feel. To roll it up it is a great American Car.

If the rest of GM were doing this well...

I'm original owner, everyday driver. At eight years old, it feels as solid, predictable and peppy as new. Only sign of age is at the full-force carwash, where a little water now creeps in over the top of driver's window. Despite public misperception, this car gets decent mileage--mid-20's--and scores *higher* on Terrapass (the green website) than a same-year Honda. It's GM's flagship and test bed for new technology, so is 2-3 years ahead of the rest, yet has awesome reliability. If it were made in Europe, with this handling, acceleration and braking, you'd pay five times what the Vette cost. The heads-up display, with speedo / tach data projected on the windshield, came from fighter plane research, and really keeps your eyes on the road. My dad loved 'em, and so do I. Plastic fantastic!

I live in New Orleans but I found this 2001 Corvette at Radical Motor Sports in Ramsey, New Jersey. With only 8690 miles on it, this car is like a brand new vehicle. The dealership even had someone pick me up at the airport. The transaction went very smoothly and quickly and I was on my way back to New Orleans. The car performed flawlessly on the 1700 mile road trip.

The 2001 Corvette convertible is smooth, solid, and comfortable. The automatic transmission shifts with flawless power, though the 6-speed offers slightly better mileage, but 29 mpg for the automatic is still respectable for a powerful sports car. While the standard seats are comfortable, they could use beefier frames as they are prone to wear and weaken quickly. The car is an overall great value for the going prices. Extremely happy with my purchase.

Corvette are cool

I have always wanted a Corvette since I was a young boy. I knew I could never afford one much less the cost of insurance. Now that I am in my mid 50's I can afford to buy a nice used model and the insurance. I purchased an all Black convertible, it's definitely a sweet car that does not lack on performance or looks. A Corvette should never be your everyday car, it's built for fun and should only be driven and enjoyed when you just want to go for a drive when the weather is nice. It's the best value for the money and you will not be disappointed owning one.

Fun Car

I bought this car 1.5 yrs ago from a private owner. It had 47,000 mi on it and was spotless. I have had 3 other Vette's (1964,69,75) over the years and they were all fun cars to drive. Obviously there are significant differences in the mechanical and creature comfort aspects of cars 35+ years/generations apart. However, taking those differences into account and this one is tops.
