2003 Chevrolet Corvette Anniversary Coupe 5.7 Liter V8 from North America
A must have, even if once in your lifetime
Manufacturer recall for steering lock problem. Dealer corrected problem.
Power window motor (passenger side) stopped working. Replaced under warranty by dealer.
Goodyear (run flat) tires have gotten extremely noisy even with lots of tread left.
This car is a rocket with wheels. The handling is superb. The braking is incredible. The gas mileage is incredible. I have gotten 29mpg on the road on a recent 3000 mile trip. The heads up display (HUD) makes driving a dream. The styling draws attention at every turn.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I too, have a 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette and I agree with all of his positive comments. My car has only 14,000 miles and the only problem I have had is a leaky rear axle seal which I had replaced under warranty. (I was smart enough to buy an extended warranty). Otherwise, the car is a marvel---scary fast and great on $4.50 premium gasoline, at least on the freeway.

Hi, I'm looking for a Corvette C5 right now. Can anyone tell if the 2003's "magnetic selective ride control" really makes any difference? Thanks!
