A Ton Of Performance And Smiles For Not So Much $$ — I chose this car (my 5th Corvette) because I've always appreciated the low ownership costs and high performance limits and potential. I bought my first C5 at 18 years old nearly 9 years ago. In the beginning i would daily drive them. But because I choose to only own a Corvette with a manual trans it can be tiresome so I've switched my Corvette to weekend/fun duty only. One notable attribute is the potential gas mileage. On a 2-hour trip from LA to San Diego i achieved 35+ MPG avg 70-75-mph. I will always love the user friendly, simple ownership experience. If I had a wish list of improvements it would be better seats, interior build quality and entertainment system. Other than those things (which aftermarket can correct) its a wonderful car.

Fast Car If Driven By Right Person — This is not actually my car, but my ex-boyfriend's. Unfortunately, he drove it like a little old woman would drive an Oldsmobile. SO unfortunate. The interior was really comfortable. It really did feel like being in an airplane (with lots of dials to play with when I didn't want to listen to him yammer on). When he did decide to accelerate, this thing would fly. The engine was relatively quiet for being as big as it was. Before dating this dude, I really did not like Corvettes. Now, I have greater respect for them (but not for him).

Hell Yeah! — Awesome car with all the options. Despite the look, it is actually very roomy and comfortable. By the time I shift out of first gear, I am over the speed limit on most non-interstates. The Corsa exhaust upgrade makes a big difference in sound, along with a 40hp increase. Next mod: supercharger.

Pros

A real eye catcher! It;s true what they say about the gas mileage. If you don't lay into it too much, it will consistantly get 27mpg. Hugs the road like no other.

Cons

Ride like a lumber wagon. C6 is a smoother ride.

Classy And Sexy. If It Were A Woman, I'd Marry Her.......... — This vehicle is a screaming meany. But, I do have to admit that the C6 models are alot faster and offer a smoother ride. But, if you are looking for a little more budget minded entry price into the world of vettes, this is it. Turns heads everywhere that I go.

Great Car, Almost Unbeatable For The Price — I absolutely loved driving this car. Being my first car it was a great introduction into the sports car world. It's a great learning car, being able to teach you to respect the power of higher end cars without throwing too much your way. Asides from the handling (mostly in wet conditions), there's not too much to complain about on this car. After losing my back end a couple of times on turns, you learn how to control it. Would definitely recommend to anybody looking for a mid-high performance car for around $10,000-15,000

It Doesn't Sit In A Garage , Its Driven All The Time As My Primary Vehicle! — 1999 corvette with a 6 speed. Borla exhaust with no mufflers , cold air intake , no other mods. Low maintenance cost , not much has gone wrong. Had a fuel leak at one of the sending unit bolts. used an o ring as a washer and stopped the leak. Glove box latch broke. Key fob stopped working. no other problems. I drive it almost every day as a daily driver. Gets between 14 to 17 mpg city and gets between 27 to 33 mpg on the highway depending on speed. I have gotten 33 mpg at 65 mph on a long trip.

Amazing Car! — This is the Best Corvette that I have yet to own. I have loved Corvettes all my life and this is the 2nd one I've owned so far. It is fun to drive, runs great and has had minimal issues, Its also a head turner. The LS1 engine has plenty of power. The car has excellent handling and great fuel mileage when driven easy, I constantly get 30-32 on the highway. I'd highly recommend the C5 to anyone looking for a fun car to drive that can be a daily driver and a weekend toy!

I Love My 1999 C5 Chevy Corvette Coupe — I am the 2nd owner of this car and can tell you that I love this car! I get complements on it all the time. The car is fast, good on fuel when my foots not pressed to the floor, it's easy to drive and handles great! I owned a 1974 Corvette back in the day and there is no comparison to that car! The C5 is comfortable on long drives, is easy to see out of and park. I've thought about trading it several times but I haven't had one single issues with the car since buying it and I don't know what I'd replace it with that looks as good and is as fun to drive.

1999 Corvette A Great American Sport Car — This car is sooo cool. You will certainly drive this car with a smile on your face. It looks great and is surprisingly comfortable. It has it all. Performance, looks, comfort, gas mileage, active handling, even decent hatchback storage with a 12 disk cd changer, Bose sound system, after market chrome wheels with new Michelins for a better ride. The Goodyear fun flat tires were very noisy so they had to go. Black Hawk exaust & Corsa exaust system give this car about 400 hp and boy doess it sound good. Lots of torque. Looks like it needs a ticket just sitting still.
