Love Hate — This car is something different, Everyone wants a peice, Still I laugh, can take them but, why spend the effort. I started out hating this car, I can not say the same now, yes it has its problems, they all do, But for the fun one has it is worth it. It leaks, It creaks, find me one other than new that doesnt. the charm of a VETTE. You do get attention in them, low key as it is I did not get the car to be

Pros

The best looking Corvette since 1967! I LOVE this car! Its got it all.   Power,Handling,Reliability, Fuel Economy,Plus the fact its a Babe Magnet! The car stops on a dime,and the transmission shifts like you want it to.. A solid all around sports car that`s fun to drive.

Cons

Leather Seats crack with age.

Six Stars- Corvette Got It Right With The C4 — Nothing to dislike, The 84 Corvette is the best looking, best handling, for the money!!!! The Quality talks to you when you drive it.The cross fire fuel injection runs perfect.The C4 handling is the best with rack and pinion steering. The 4/3 auto transmission is excellent, what more can i say, go buy one!! Check it out! The 1984 Corvette was rated.. Top 10 BEST Corvettes ever built!!

Pros

A fun and responsive car.  Parts are generally available and prices are not too bad for mechanical items.

Cons

Cars of this era had weak paint and the UV at high altitude will damage the paint badly.  Weather strip is also subject to UV damage.  Cylinder heads were weak, my factory ones warped and blew head gaskets twice.  I replaced them with later L98 heads and had no more issues.

A Very Good Sports Car For The Money. — The Z51 suspension is stiff but handles well. The glass top is best for spring and fall. In the summer it lets in too much heat. The hatch back gives a lot more cargo room than you would expect and it is drivable in the winter on winter tires.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Phenomenal, even if not-so-refined, handling.

Cons

At that time in automotive history, it really needed 50 more horses. Now, of course, at a mere 205 HP, it would be deemed underpowered.

Terrifically Precise Steering And Handling. — Actually this C-IV Corvette came out as a 1983 ½ model year -- the first major revision coming out of the seventies era C-III. Its handling was so radically stiff that it would beat a Lamborghini Countach on the track. Try driving it very fast on average road surfaces and your kidneys would be hurting (literally)! It was two-tone: metallic bronze and brown, with standard transmission. Because it came with high and low range differential to meet CAFE regulations (regarding gaz guzzler taxation), it had seven speed -- however, at least two of them were redundant. It was extremely fun to drive because the handling limits were so high that it was beyond the psychological limits of nearly all who drove them!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Ultimate Dream Car — I've dreamed of owning a corvette for so long. This is really my dream come true. I can't wait until it is fully restored so I can show the world what a beautiful piece of machine a corvette truly is.

Good Car For A Classic Chevy Lover. — old style car with all the new ideas that came out in84, digital dash, crossfire fuel injected LT one, high tourqe low horsepower 350cid. Car performes just as you would think a corvette should. definetly years ahead of vettes before it in comfort and handeling.She runs strong with 25,000 miles on a total rebuild and new R7 tranny,I have enjoyed this car for 8 years now and have had very little trouble with it.I would recommend a C4 to anyone who loves sport cars.

Vet — It has it QWERKS! It has a crazy back story, but the engine is strong the body is sleek and sexy, the color is just right? She gets all kinds of looks, when she takes off you can feel her.
