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.

Pros

I like everything about this car! I get right at 30 MPG on the hwy, the car is smooth, fast and looks great! I like the heads up display as well, kind of like flying a plane :)

Cons

I can't really think of anything I don't like about this car!

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.

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

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!

Loved It From Day One — I like the way it rides and handles. I've taken it on several long road trips. Even after a 16-hour day of driving, I still couldn't wait to get back into it the next day. It's an awsome automobile.

Pros

The speed and torque is immense with the added Performance SuperChip.
The custom exhaust exacerbates the roar of the engine.
The custom blue ghost pain job (8k) with fading decals makes this a head turner.

Cons

Minor scratches here and there.

It Is The Nicest Cars I Have Ever Seen For Under $20,000. — Driving it is a thrill! It is a definite super car for under $20,000! Acceleration immediately causes the back wheels to go off veer and then back straight. It is quite a sight and feel to drive this Blue Ghost. Its an amazing car all around.

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.

Pros

It's a Corvette first and foremost, that's all that nees to be said! However, I'm a female so I won't/can't stop there. She's one sexy ride. Handles like a dream. Love the instrument panel and HUD (heads up display). If you can keep your foot out of it then you can get around 28/29 mpg which I found surprising since it is an 8 cyl, great for road trips. Truly a joy to drive and reasonably inexpensive to maintain compared to most other sports cars. Excellent stock Boise sound system. Lord that thing rocks! The two top option is cool, you can either sport the solid or smoked glass top.

Cons

Two person vehicle. It is very accommodating for tall people but not overweight friendly and sits fairly low to the ground so if you're not in shape it can be difficult to get in and out of. The vehicle itself sits pretty low so you really have to watch humps/bumps until you get used to it. The seats hardly recline at all. It has run flat tires, which are stock for my '99 and are rather expensive and if you cannot afford the run flat tires there is no area for a spare tire. When you have the top off there is virtually no room in the hatchback where you store the top.

Of All The Vehicles I've Owned Thus Far, This Has Been My Favorite! — The ONLY thing I do not like about this vehicle is the fact that the seats can't recline, due to obvious reaons. It really sucks when you're traveling and need to pull over for a quick nap, but I doubt that would concern anyone under the age of 40. But still, after the nephew/niece no longer want to hang w/their Aunt and I won't need a 4 door, I will buy another Corvette.

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.
