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  The displays are outdated.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.............

Most Fun Car I've Ever Owned — Wow, at the time, 405 hp was amazing. Now the base vette has more. And the current Z06 has 500+ and the new ZR1 will have 600+. This car was still a blast to drive and was an awesome deal.

One Car That"s Loads Of Fun To Drive And Gets Impressive Gas Mileage — I own a 2002 Magnetic red Vette. Neat that you can have a car you can be proud of and gets good fuel economy at the same time. You know other car fans when you pass by and they stop and look and wave. It"s one of the most fun cars I"ve ever had and enjoy detailng it and it shows your hard work.

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.)

Lots Of Fun For Little Money — The C5 Corvette (1997-2004) made Corvette the best performer for dollars spent. The car has a proven, reliable drivetrain that delivers outstanding performance without the penalties typically associated with a sports car. It really does achieve 25-26 mpg at higher than legal speeds. It is build for cruising - handling improves with speed. Ride is remarkably comfortable, and cargo capacity is amazing. I love to take this on weekend trips. Finally, it is beautiful just sitting in the driveway - an automotive work of art.

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.

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!
