Pros

Great performance and handling in stock z06 trim - easily increased to supercar levels with a few modifications.

Cons

Interior lacks some bells and whistles - but fit for purpose of high performance and lite weight.

Best Bang For The Buck C5 Corvette Model — Overall, great performance car with exceptional levels of handling and power. Continues to be at the top of overall performance and still outperforms most anything on the road. If you're looking for strong reliability, huge performance and comfortable cruising - look no further.

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  The displays are outdated.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!

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.

Awesome !! — Its all like on this car, this is my 4th Vette, all but one bought new. The true American sports car. It has it all, power, beauty, ride, comfort (don't drive non-stop, except to fuel up, to Florida from Ohio). And compared to its foreign competition, value & price.

I wish the top went up and down automatically, though it is easy to do manually.

Smokin — I really don't have anything bad to say I love this car. I have chosen to get a manual transmission instead. the only one who doesn't like this triple black corvette is my mother who thinks im going to kill myself!

Not Big Enough — I love everything about this car, truely I do, but its just too small for my lifestyle. I need something with a back seat and more room for my two doggies whom are my children. Daddys is getting tired of me always driving one of his trucks. I have put less than five thousand miles on it, and I've owned it for over three years. The total miliage is less than 28,000

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.

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!

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
