1989 Chevrolet Corvette C4 Convertible L89 350ci from North America
More addictive than crack cocaine and safer than sex
Factory Alternator Failed.
Brakes Vacuum Assist Failed.
Power Seat and Window Switches Failed.
Electronic Climate Control Fails Intermittently.
Overall a wonderful performance vehicle. Blistering acceleration, grips road like a magnet and head turning good looks.
The engine has been about bullet proof. Items which failed are to be expected of a vehicle driven daily of this age.
If you cannot work on cars yourself, expect some difficulty finding an experienced Corvette mechanic, and they come at a premium cost.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

"an experienced Corvette mechanic"?
Why would you need to find one of those? Doesn't the powertrain (especially on an '89) use most if not all the same components found on other GM vehicles?

The electronics with all the relay switches and four on board computer on the 89 vette make it more advanced than most 2010 cars on the road! Don't believe me, road race one on a twistie, curvy road, see ya!!! The c-4 (1983.5-1996) suspension is so advanced you can buy the package out of Ecklers for the C-2 for three thousand dollars!!!
