I had a Corvette once -i'll never go back that way again. What a piece of fecal material. Plus, they really don't have any curb appeal and ya can't take 'em on long distance trips and put anything in 'em. They are fast though.

I used to have a 1997 C5
Never ever gave me a problem. Super reliable. 120k when it went away and still running like new. Granted the interior was crappy but you learn to live with it .I loved the race car feel I always had when I drove it.

Sorry_I read Dan's post and thought he was onto something. It doesn't sound like you and this car are a good match. I'm lucky-so far, not even a little glitch and my last one was exactly the same. maybe you have a lemon.
