Pros

We love this car! It looks good and is fun to drive and even just to ride in while my husband is driving.

Cons

This is not a big car, so it's not great for family or for carrying a lot of stuff.

We Love This Car! — This is a special-purpose vehicle. It's great for taking on vacation, or running around on the weekend. It looks great, is fun to drive and has a removable T-top so we can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine (or moon and stars) when the weather is nice. This is not a car you want to drive in really bad weather. It's meant for racetrack conditions, not winter roads.

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

Pros

Fun to drive, especially in canyon passes

Cons

Kids in college, the vette needs to go....so much for my midlife crisis

Love It — The only negative that I can think of is it is not a commuter car, hence the low miles. Shifting into first and second gear (because of traffic) tends to get tiresome, but on the open road with the top down, look out!

Pros

Great performance vehicle with good looks and can be used as a daily driver, even though I use as a pleasure ride only. Great mileage for a performance car - 27.5 mpg across Montana and it could be higher with a lighter foot.

Cons

Very noisy cabin with the Eagle tires and glass top, easily improved with Michelins and other top.

Fast And Fun Yet Economical — Acceleration and braking are incredible, just as easy to stop on a dime as it is to merge onto any freeway in a short distance. Very comfortable cockpit for a two seat performance vehicle and decent storage for bags/ suitcases.

Once In A Life Time Dream Car — For years I've seek to just try and sit in a Chevrolet Corvette and never could.. Until the 2003 Corvette came along.. I was very surprised that I could sit in one of these muscle cars and actually feel comfortable. Three times the dealer said I couldn't touch this car even after showing them the money.. Resorting to one of their sister dealerships about 50 miles away.. I was able to drive away with that legend. Seeing how it was 2003 and it just so happen that I was invited to Bowling Green, KY for the 50th anniversary celebration.. We made the trip. During the summer months, we participated in a number of car shows and after winning 7 trophies and 4 plaques.. only to have the car totaled late summer 2004.

This car handles like it's on a rail. Its styling is timeless, and at the same time, contemporary.

This Car Is A Technological Marvel. — I like everything about this car. The seats are comfortable, the driver amenities are superb, and the bells and whistles in this Vette still amaze me. When ever I drive it I just want to keep on going. Love it.

All Corvettes Are Red. — This was a really nice car. Great performance and handling. My wife really liked it. Nice oak interior. Didn't like the auto shifter, I really like my new 6 speed. Only sold it because my daughter needed money for college and she got married so we needed money for the wedding. I thought I would be happy with the cheaper 79 but that just didn't happen. Now I have my black 03 with the 6 speed and couldn't be happier. Maybe a Z06 would be nicer, but they don't have tan interior and I don't race around enough to need the extra horsepower. If I ever sell the black one it will be for a Z06. But overall, the red one sold me on the C5's. Have driven the C'6s and the seem bulky or fat.

Great C5 — Best of all my former Corvettes. Most fun to drive. Big tires look great on the aftermarket Z06 wheels. Previous owner was OCD about it. Just over 50000 miles. Performance 3.42 rear end. See thru top. Wheels are 18/8.5 front and 19/11 on the back. All factory options. Love the HUD. Aftermarket Pioneer stereo with rear subwoofer and Alpine speakers.

Sleek — Very fun sport auto to drive. Immediate acceleration and pin point braking. Rear view mirror and door mirrors are positioned for total 360 look see around auto. This helps with high speed driving on the interstates for weaving thru traffic.

Great Style, Power And Handling — I have always wanted a 2003 Anniversary Edition Corvette Convertible. They are the perfect mix of style, color and performance from the best made american car. This is one car that does not need any additions or upgrades and will always remain original.

World Class Sports Car! — I absolutely love this car! Its very easy to drive, the reliability has been amazing, and its extremely easy to work on. The car is put together very simply, and that works perfectly! Its as easy to drive and fix as an old chevy truck really.
