1999 Chevrolet Corvette Z51 Sport Package 5.7L V8 gasoline from North America
The best sports car for the money!
Parking brake shoes – I think the previous owner drove with the parking brake on.
Rear differential leak – known problem. GM has a service fox for it.
Steering column lock – known problem. GM has a revised part for this.
I LOVE this vehicle!!! It does everything I ask for in a sports car. It is fast, handles & stops great, has great styling both inside and out, yet is comfortable and roomy enough to drive on a daily basis. The targa top is lightweight and easy to remove and install. I remove mine every time the sun is out! The hatch is HUGE and holds a lot of stuff (people look at me funny when I am buying groceries or at Home Depot with the car). It gets great gas mileage as well. I average 17-19mpg city and 28-30mpg highway, depending on how aggressive I have been driving. I drive my car on a daily basis.
I have owned it for 4 years and still love the car as much as I did when I bought it. I plan to keep this car long term and put at least 200K miles on it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
