Pros

Very comfortable on long trips.  Been to Virginia twice and what a fantastic ride on the Skyline Drive Parkway.

Cons

Just when the top it up.  It's a minor vision obstruction.

It's Like Having A Much Needed Vacation Everytime You Get Behind The Wheel. — If I could, I'd drive this car everyday. The fuel mpg is outstanding in 6th gear. People move out of my way when I'm in the fast lane....it commands presence on the highway. The performance of this ride makes it enjoyable to get into when you're stressed after a long day at work.

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

Pros

Power, handling, braking, style, presence, fuel mileage (when driven appropriately), unbelievable bargain at the time.

Cons

Seats have no lateral support, still carries that old gold chain wearing stigma with some people.

Best Car I've Ever Owned By Far, Everything I Wanted. — This car had face peeling acceleration, ridiculous lateral grip, and ass clenching braking.

Remember the low low mileage is a winner for anyone!

Cons

In IL it still has to have a front license plate.

Dollar For Horsepower Is Evident With This Beauty! — The performance is powerful, the quality is superb, the appearance is immaculate, the cost of ownership is low, and the fun factor is amaaaazing!! What other vehicle turns heads, satisfies an ego and yet can purr or growl when needed? This 2002 Corvette!

Excellent Car For The Money — The acceleration is thrilling braking handling superb, Gas milage is good considering the power on tap. Sleek looking. This car is exceptionally fun to drive. Cost is reasonable for what you get.Its nice to have a car with real performance. It is a very tight driving car.

I Love This Car And Am Glad I Got It. — I get decent fuel mileage (24 city - 28 hwy) and that's better than the 99 LuminaLTZ I had before. It's fun and comfortable to drive with power you can feel. I've been told that repairs will be expensive but I haven't had any problems yet. The seats fit like a glove and are very comfortable for longer trips.

Pros

This car is just all around fun.  i truly enjoy driving with the top down and the visibility is incredible that way.  everyone on the highway moves out of my way when i'm driving and there's nothing like another Vette wave from another Vette owner.  the mpg is fantastic, especially in 6th gear.

Cons

it is not that good in the rain, only because the rear tires have trouble gripping the road.  The visibility with the top up is a little difficult, but not disturbing.  The displays are outdated.  Chevy still has to step into this century.

Perfect Summer Driving Car — if it's not raining, i'm driving it. unfortunately, there's not a lot of summer in chardon, ohio. And there's a lot of precipitation throughout the year. one day i'll move south and it will be my one and only. i look out into my garage I wish I could get in and take it for a spin!

Race Ready!! — Out of the box performance!!! High 12 sec 1/4 mile, and all the top end speed you need in 6th gear with all the braking and handling to go with it!!!! The Musle Car era wasn't the 60's & 70's........ITS NOW!!!!! Where living it.............

Best Performance Car For The Money! — Best in the world performance. Flimsy building materials though. There's a few electrical issues. Everyone turns their heads to look at it. It gets great gas mileage for its horsepower, and is a very comfortable every day driver. All around a 9.9 out of 10 car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Awesome — Fun to drive, shifting gears and going around corners. Gas mileage 26 mpg to 28 mpg on the open road. Around town just getting up to the speed limit is fun and watching out for speed traps. C-5 my favorite body style

Pros

Tons of torque, very quick, terrific handling, very capable track car, comfortable, good highway gas mileage, cheap to own

Cons

Feels "big", schoolbus steering wheel, poor GM interior, numb steering (though better than C6), lousy seats

Amazing Bang-for-the-buck Performance — This is a great, all-around performance bargain. Aside from the lackluster interior, it is certainly a solid car. Track performance is fantastic and the car is set up very well from the factory. It has a raw, race car-like quality to it that is all but absent in the new C6's.
