1996 Corvette "collectors Edition — This car has been one of the best cars I have owned. It is tough to get in and out of being 6'3", but once you are in it is a magnificent vehicle. The maintenance is minimal - oil and lube, and not much else. The tires are staggered sizes and directional, so there is no rotating. The dash looks like a fighter jet cockpit. It is much more attractive IMO then the newer Corvette dashes which have become large and more plastic in appearance. Both front seats are 8 way power and are very comfy. all in all compared to it's peers of other sports cars, this car offers much in the way of styling, performance and comfort, as well as reliability which is a bonus that others cannot always boast! I highly recommend this vehicle.

Bottom Line On This Car Is Its A "corvette, America's Car" Nothing Better. — This car performs well, very good acceleration and braking and it handles very well on ramps and curves. The dash instrument trim lens rattles when its cold. This car is in very good condition inside and out. The only problem I find is getting in and out of this car its not easy and for a woman with a dress or skirt on forget it. I had a 77 vette before and was much easier to get in and out of. This car gets very goood gas milage highway of approx. 25 mpg, maintenance is a little expensive to have it done like oil changes using mobile 1, but I love driving after sliding down into it.

Pros

Exceptional performance value for the price.  The LT4/six-speed transmission makes this car.

Cons

There is just about enough cargo room to pack your lunch and if you drop the top, you had better be a light eater!  Much less cargo than the fastback coupe.

Best Of The C4s. — The ride and handling is by far the best of any C4 I have experienced... far better comfort than a 1984 with Z51 suspension, far better than the base early suspension cars also. This car uses a big n little tire combination so tires can not be rotated front to rear. That can be a treadwear issue.

It's a GM.  You need to be good with a spanner or repairs can cost $$$

Best Bang-for-buck — LT4 motor - 345hp, 340ft-lb torque . 0-60 4.8 secs, 170 mph IN 1996!! You can pick up a late C4 for 10k plus now. LT4's are a little more but is still the best bang for buck out there. Brutal acceleration, tons of torque, corners on rails and not a bad interior for a GM car. Doesn't like bumpy road surfaces. Unmistakable V8 sound and road presence. The first 'modern' corvette.

The Sebring Silver Corvette, Very Fun To Drive! — Everyone should own a vette at least once in your life. I have drove many kinds of cars, I own a Cadillac CTS sport coupe (not a V). It is very fast and agile. With a vette being down closer to the ground it really gives you a sense of speed better. The closest thing you can get to a race car feel. I hope this helps. I know you want to know why I am selling. Cant afford both and the caddy is more practical. Some day when I retire I will get another one. Have Fun!

Fun To Drive Especially With The Top Down — I like everything about this car. It has a unique color, polo green. It is great looking and sporty and fun to drive. You can't beat cruising with the top down. Great value for America's number one sports car! Can't beat it!!

Pros

Awesome extreme powerful car. Just give it a little gas and you are splittin gone ripping down the road !!! The color "Torch Red" is the best color which is very eye-catching ! It is so easy to control and it gives you a sense of power of the highway its great.

Cons

The cons of this car are few and far between. Actually the con of it would be that once you get in it you dont want to get out of it.

G Force Thrust Fun Fun Fun — I love the way it handles on the highways and it is alot of fun to drive and its difficult to bring it home and park it after the unique fun driving experience that you have. It brakes wonderfully and will stop on a dime, and I'v never felt safer in any other car over the last almost 40 years of driving numerous types of cars. The shape of this car is so sporty- sophisticated and lean that it is a head-turner anywhere you go and gets numerous compliments. It is very comfortable to ride in and drive as well, it is definitely a highly desirable car and lovable.

The Best Bang For Your Performance Buck. — High raves for power / performance / handling. Rants for poor interior quality, high side sills make for difficult entry / exit. Can never say enough good things about the small block 5.7 Chevy LT4 engine! It pulls like a train. Excellent bang for your buck!
