Downloading and looking through both the buying and tech files is HIGHLY recommended! Most comment questions and situations have been documented in them.


If you’re in the market for a Corvette, this is a thread that will hopefully give you some insight into what to consider when you are making your purchasing decision. Vetteman Jack and I have put this together with the hope that others will also share their knowledge and experience in buying a Corvette. If you’ve got some sage advice for prospective owners, feel free to add it in to this thread.

But please, this is not meant to be a technical discussion thread, simply a place to share advice with new folks wanting to know things to look for when purchasing.

First off... filling out your profile with your location will benefit you in the long run. When you post a question or problem, someone in your area may offer to help or advise who in your area may be best to have a look at it.


So, you want a Corvette... huh?

Why do you want a Corvette? Are you looking for excellent handling and performance even in stock form ? Then you’ll probably want to go in the Z06 direction (or possibly a Fixed Roof Coupe (FRC) to modify). They have stiffer chassis and suspension and also weigh a little more than 100 pounds less then coupes or convertibles. And with the Z06, you get anywhere from 385 hp (2001) to 405 hp (2002-2004) – a nice bump from the coupe or convertible hp ratings (either 345 (1997-2000) or 350 (2001-2004).

Perhaps you’re looking for a car that will make you grin when you put your foot in it but may not be the biggest or baddest on the block, and still fair very well in "spirited" driving? You may be better off in a coupe or convertible. Softer ride, less aggressive handling and not quite as much "umph" in these models but still a lot of fun to drive. Coupe versus convertible is a personal choice and neither one is "better" than the other. Both styles can be modified to meet or exceed base Z06 power and handling but won't do it in stock form.


The Z51 package for non-Z06 models updates the suspension to be more aggressive and rigid for improved handling over the base offering.

Or do you just plain like the looks of one style more than the others? There's no wrong answer. Test drive examples of all the styles to determine what suits your needs the best.

Any decision you make is the RIGHT decision for you and that's all that counts. Others liking the looks of your baby is always nice and a boost for the ego, but in the final analysis, YOU are going to be the one getting in and out of it on a consistent basis so YOU'D better like it – be patient and thorough in your evaluation of the car. And do not be afraid to travel a distance to find just the right car. The thread below is a list of forum members that have volunteered to help look at a car if it is a distance from you. Use this resource if you have to, but remember it is still your responsibility to make sure the car is to your liking.

Be familiar with what options were available and their codes.
Option Codes: http://home.fuse.net/corvette/rpo.htm

Decide what features are must haves, what ones are like to have, and what would be nice to have, in that order. Don't waiver just because you happen to see a nice car. Give up some of the musts and would likes, and you'll live to regret it.

Know how to pull the codes from the computer and what they mean. Pulling the DIC codes:
Retreiving & Clearing Codes on a 1997-2004 C5 Corvette - YouTube. This can be done while you are looking at a car to buy. Bring a pen and paper with you and write down each code that shows up on the Driver’s Information Center (DIC).

Direct url: h ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SviRjIsy 9G4



These files containing the Code definitions are included in any of the Tech download zip files shown
above, or you can search for for them on the web if you prefer. Multiple sites have them listed.

If you do not know what the codes mean after looking at the Error Codes listing, post them up on the forum and ask for some help in deciphering them. It could save you a bundle of dollars by avoiding a car with costly repair needs.

Define your budget, that will determine a lot. Know what you will accept - miles on the car, condition, style, options, etc. All these things can affect the price you will have to pay.

What will your transmission of choice be – manual or automatic? Think hard on this. A lot of people give a knee jerk reaction of "manual or nothing!" but then get it and have to keep shifting in high traffic situations. Manual transmissions aren't for everyone. If you plan to track the car, automatics can be a good choice as you can't miss a shift.


One question invariably comes up: "What years are the best" - Generic answer: All of them - they're just different. The C5 platform is basically a solid one with not a lot of glaring problems. It can stand a fair amount of spirited driving and remain dependable. That's not to say it can't break, but it's not fragile either. The 2001 model year incorporated many design changes for earlier issues and also had more standard equipment. By the 2003 model year, many of the items listed as options in prior years were now standard equipment, but there were still a number of options available that you could choose from. One such option is the F55 Magnetic Selective Ride shocks. Nice feature until it breaks and then you're looking at about four grand in parts to replace the shocks alone.
A common reply to the question of what years to look for is "01 or later", largely due to the potential of EBCM issues (see below) fact of the numerous upgrades that happenedthat year, but a C5 is a good choice independent of year as long as you go in with eyes wide open and have done adequate research here.

Another question is "How much is it worth?" Between Kelly Blue Book (KBB) and National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), KBB is usually on the VERY high side of values and no one pays those prices, or at least they probably shouldn't. The NADA values seem to map fairly close to the actual market values of the cars. Several factors can vary even that: geographic location, mileage, vehicle condition, consumer demand, market trends, as well as a host of other influences. But the NADA values are good ballpark indicators.

There are a few common problem areas that you should
be aware of up front.

Electronic Brake Control Modules: 1997-2000 do have some EBCM breakages which can not be replaced or fixed at this point. PERIOD. Is not having Antilock Brakes a deal breaker for you? People drove cars for a long time without that function but only you can decide what's right for you. Currently 2001-2004 cars EBCM systems can be fixed or replaced if they fail.

Column Lock: The 1997-2000 A4s (automatics) and all M6's (manuals, with or without the factory recall done) have a dreaded column lock issue that if not resolved by the owner will most probably rear its head at some point. 2001 and later autos do *not* have the problem. The steering column will lock up and not unlock, rendering the car not able to be driven. One main cause of this is a bad or improper battery but it has occurred when that wasn't the cause as well. Beginning in 2001 model year, the automatics were changed and eliminated the problem. All the manuals have the problem.

There are two commonly accepted methods of really resolving the issue.

1) A Column Lock Bypass (CLB). Many forum vendors carry the part necessary to make a column lock problem a thing of the past. These include Corvettes of Houston, Mid-America Motorworks, etc.


2) A LMC5 Device: http://www.complianceparts.com/products.html

Here is a thread with details on the Column Lock issue but it was written prior to the advent of the LMC5 device.
http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c5-t...ky-please.html There are a lot of forum threads on the column lock issue. Using the search function should bring up a number of them for you to review and learn.

Other common problems reported over the year include:
  • Faulty gas gauge
  • Oil pressure sensor failure
  • Leaking rear differential seals
  • Rocking Seats
  • Leaking Battery

Once the starry eyes have passed and you’ve done your research, sit down and WRITE down what your perfect Corvette would be (the musts, would likes, etc). Color, automatic vs manual, body style, options xyz, etc.... I mean define your perfect car.

Armed with that you're ready to begin your search for your car. I emphasize “YOUR CAR”. Everyone has opinions and in this case, YOUR’S is the ONLY one that counts. Listen to your gut.

An ideal place to start would be to drive all of the models. Z06, base coupe, Z51 Coupe, convertible, FRC, automatic/manual, etc - in most cases this isn't realistic but you should definitely drive what you are able to in order to help make your decision.

Some repairs can get a bit expensive, but there are plenty of Do-It-Yourself threads here on the forum that can guide you through the repair and save you a bunch of money at the same time. Obviously some mechanical ability would be required. If you are not comfortable working on a car, then be sure you keep repair costs in mind. In any case, be sure unexpected repair costs won’t bust your budget and ruin your Corvette ownership experience.

It is recommended that you use Premium fuel in these cars. Yes, you can use lower octane gas, but performance suffers and long term reliability of the engine may be compromised. If filling a car with premium gas is an issue with you, perhaps reconsider your choice of cars.

Obviously look for the lowest miles and best condition vehicle that is within your price range. Always have any that you're serious about checked out by a reputable mechanic who's well versed with Corvettes. Notice that doesn't say Chevy dealer. If you don't know who to have check it out, see if there are any local car and/or Corvette clubs or organizations and seek out their advice. Or, refer back to the link above that lists forum members that will check out a car for you. Most people who have these cars are more than willing to help and share information.

Higher mileage considerations:

At 130K, you should look at the following:

1. Grounding Straps: Look for corrosion and/or frayed straps or wires.
2. Pull the battery. See if any acid has leaked on the wiring or look for wears or corrosion of the wiring harness.
3. The internal lights: Specifically the HVAC display, the bulbs for Speedo, Radio, etc.
4. The air conditioning. The HVAC actuators are known to go bad after time. Make sure all vents blow cold and hot air. Check to make sure that if the change the MODE on the HVAC head unit, it actually changes the air flow to the correct position.
5. Clutch: Should have been replaced. Does the owner have the repair order and replacement bill?
6. Service records: Oil changes, differential, and transmission fluid changes.
7. Tires and Wheels. How old, what shape are they in?
8. Weatherstripping: Not as big a problem on the Z06s or FRC as coupes and convertibles.
9. Sensors: Make sure to check for codes on the DIC. Look for current codes and history. The DIC is easy to clear, so once you take it for a test drive of five or more miles, stop and check.
10. Window actuators: Make sure all windows function as they should. Window actuators are a known problem.
11. Rattles: A 130K mile car is going to be loose. Listen for rattles. Where do they come from?
12. Oil Pressure: See if the pressure is in the good range.
13. Engine compression: If possible, have a compression check performed.
14. Exhaust and undercarriage: Check for rust, holes, etc.
15. Interior: Check seats, dash board, etc. Check for cracks, discoloration, etc.
16. Air Dam: Check to make sure it has not been damaged.
17. Air Filter: Has it been maintained? How clean/Not clean?
18. Vacuum Leaks: Again age on the hoses. These will cause issues with HVAC as well.
19. Body damage. See if you can spot any differences in paint or cracks. Normal stone chips expected to fender wells, noise, etc.
20. CarFax: Not always reliable, but a good precaution.
21. Steering: Is it tight or too much play? Could indicate worn ball joints, steering head, etc.
22. Suspension: Normal items, shocks, dust boots, bushings, etc.
23. Shifting transmission: Zs are a little tight, but run through the gears and listen for pinging and noise.
24. Oil Leaks. Check for oil leaks.
25. Coolant leaks. Check for coolant leaks.
26. Fuel Pump: Listen for fuel pump noise and smell of gasoline.
27. Tune up records: When were plugs and wires changed?
28. Brake pads and rotors. Brake jobs not too bad, but if the rotors are warped, it will be an added expense. Check for leaks.
29. Valve Spring changes. Known issue.

The electrical items will cost the most, unless you have serious mechanical problems.

That's about it. If all checks out, you should be good. Remember it is a 130K car, so it is not going to be perfect, unless the owner replaced parts regularly.
This is a fantastic thread and must of taken a ton of time to put together. Thanks to all for showing your passion and attempting to educate those looking at getting their first Vette. I will be referring to this periodically, hopefully not for fixes but it's just a good read.
Thanks again...

I did my homework, set my specifics and got my Silver C5 Vert (04). It's been in the garage all winter, try to drive it a little every week or so, can't wait until the weather warms and the streets are clean and dry from the winter months. I searched for a long time and a couple got away before I could pull the trigger but I went prepared with this one. Saw it, drove it, bought it !!!

So I bought my Z06 last fall. It is an original STS twin turbo car and has 93400 miles. I did do a bunch or upgrades and would like to know what thoughts are and I need to do more. The engine did not leak down more than 9% and that was only 1 cylinder others where less.
1 new turbos as old ones had some issues due to cats failing.
2 new cam to match turbos better, New valve springs for cam and new timing chain
3 new silicone hoses under hood, new water pump and new coolant.
4 new power stop brakes and stainless flex hoses. Flushed fluid.
5 new shifter, trans fluid and diff fluid changed and washer upgrade on transmission.
6 new front tires rears excellent.
7 new ATI Balancer, new Belts
8 Rocker arm trunion upgrade.
Thanks for opinions

Hey guys, I learned this post looking for a c5 Corvette as it is very useful! But am now leaning towards a C6 corvette. I have tried searching on my phone for a buying guide on the C6, but with no luck. Do you guys know if there is one of these threads for the C6?

Thanks

To my knowledge, no. But, you may want to ask on the C6 General forum.

Definitely not the place to post this - I can't move it. Jack can when he sees it but I'd advice posting a thread in the General forum. Good luck

I know the C4 offered the ZR-1s in the 1990s and there are C6 & C7 ZR-1s, but can't find any ZR-1 information for the C5 other than the Z06 option. Why are sellers indicating that the C5 being sold is a ZR-1? Is that legit? Thanks!

Hello from Europe, Latvia!

We don't see Corvettes too often on the road here and because I am not so familiar with them I wanted to ask You if 15750$ is too much for 2002 405bhp Z06 with 71.5k miles on it.

It is in decent condition in black.

I think it has aftermarket wheels because of those fake screws all around the wheels.

Owner said that it has been involved in a crash (I don't know how serious but he said that wing, bumper and hood needed to be changed).

He has just put on new tyres Michelin 295/R18 in the back for 600$ and 265/R17 on front (other brand I think).

Owner also said that he has made some upgrades to the car like:
1) installed a Magnaflow exhaust system for 1750$
2) installed upgraded brake discs and brake pads on front and rear
3) installed reinforced valve springs (he said that the originals tend to break) although the originals were fine

Here are more pics: http://www.bildites.lv/a/cudjsyzf#caebpa8q

Hello baltais and welcome to the forum. That seems a tad high to me but I have no clue what values across the pond are. And you would get must more response to your question if you post it in the General C5 Forum section. Maybe Jack will see your post and move it for you, I don't have that ability. Whatever you decide, good luck!

baltais - I can't just move a post out of this thread into the C5 General section, but I would echo calvins' comment of starting a new thread in the C5 General section and ask for advice on the price of that particular vehicle. Hope you find the right car for you and get many miles of enjoyment from it.

Default Very informative thread!

Bought my third C5 in 13 years. Have owned a FRC, a convertible, and now a coupe. Really appreciate all the information in this thread. And as you say, don't be afraid to take a road trip for the right car!
