1989 Chevrolet Corvette 5.7L L89 from North America
I was glad to get rid of it
Something broke on it about every 2 months. Was in garage more than on the road.
Major things - 3 fuel pumps, injectors plugged up, ECM blew. Last straw was head gasket started leaking.
Maybe I got a bad one, but I hear the above problems are normal for a Corvette? If so, I don't want another one.
Performance was odd. I never felt I was fully in control.
Very uncomfortable, and hard to get in and out.
Cheap materials for the interior. Looks like a sixth grader installed it with elmers glue and bubblegum.
The reason I chose this car is the same reason I chose women... for the way it looked... great looking car... too bad it let me down the same way as every good looking woman I've dated... you think I would have learned by now and just marry a fat chick.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

As for the guy with the 89 Vette, you must have gotten a bad motor, or one that was not taken care of. I got mine in 1992 from Napoleon Ohio, just south of Toledo Ohio. I went thru all their used Vettes, and there were a lot back then. I got a black one and found out it was from New York. It had high mileage for a 3 year old car; around 60,000. It now has around 93,000 or so, and it still looks great and runs great. Sure there are things that go bad in any car. But with the Internet today, you can tackle almost any job, if you're mechanically inclined.
