Hey there guys, My name is Casey i am 20yrs old and im from MN, I am new to the site. I am looking at purchasing my first C5 corvette.

Its a 2002 Silver hatchback. 78,000 miles borla exhaust and different intake, oh yea and has the Z06 Wheels on it.

the dealership wants 19,995 for it, thats sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

I could use all your help though if anyone has some imput on wheather thats a good deal or no.

Any other info on 2001-2002 Corvettes would be appreciated.

Thanks Guys

Welcome Casey... I'm not sure what the 2002 would be worth, there are others here that would have a better answer than me.

But since you asked I'll venture an opinion and hopefully generate some food for thought. The miles are a bit high for my taste but that's just me. The Borla exhaust, upgraded intake and Z06 rims add value IMO. The Vette is about 5 years old and priced considerably less than my '98 convertible was at 6 years old with the B&B exhaust, new tires and 25,000 miles.

I'd run a Carfax report and have a trusted mechanic look it over. If everything looks copacetic, I'd make a counter offer and see what happens.

In the long run, it boils down to how bad you want the Vette and what are you willing to pay to get it.

Hi to all you guys too..

Anyone know where a good deal is on a 1999-2003 C5 Corvette. Auto, under 70000 miles, for around like 18,000-22,000.


Thanks again for all the help

This doesn't sound like a bad deal to me either. Welcome to CORVETTE ACTION CENTER, and happy hunting. The hunt is maybe half the fun.

Let us know what you end up with; there is one out there with your name on it.

I can't help you with the oil pressure question, but it does look pretty good miles look good but the price seems too low, better run a carfax. Carfax is not the end all for your research, but it might show something.

The price sounds like a pretty low price to me for a 1999 as well; I would run a car fax it's worth the money in my book. May bring up some issues that may explain the low price and there is always a possibility that you stumbled on a good deal too. I have a 2000 C-5 and the oil pressure when I first start it and the oil is cold yet runs about 50lbs. & after the engine gets to operation temperature it will settle down to around 35lbs. and I've been told that is about normal. I am sure this is a electric guage so it won't be as accurate as a manual line fed guage but I would say in this area would be what you should expect to see.

Hope this helped some,
Bill :w
