2004 Chevrolet Corvette LS1 from North America
Outstanding performance at a bargain price
Nothing so far.
Having been raised on and owned mostly 4 cylinder foreign makes over the years, this car is a true revelation. Acceleration and handling are like nothing I've ever driven before. It's been hard getting used to the speed at which curves can be taken, and straight line acceleration is very quick.
I did not list a previous vehicle because I did not replace any car with the 'Vette. I plan on laying it up for the winter and driving my Subaru.
Although it take some getting used to, entrance to the car is not as bad as I thought it might be. Once inside the seats are very comfortable with adjustable side and back bolsters, as well as all the usual fore/aft/up/down adjustments. Outward vision is better than I thought it would be and I feel safe in making lane changes and seeing all around the outside of the car. Interior fit, finish and materials are certainly better than other Chevy's I've driven.
This car is good looking! I prefer this Corvette body style to any other, including the latest C6 'Vette.
Considering everything together, especially price when bought used, I don't think there's another car out there that provides performance and handling that this Corvette does.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
