"Best of the C4 Corvette. The LT4 optional engine listed at 330HP is known to be very conservatively rated. As a metter of fact, a number of Dyno testers show this engine out-performing most LS1's. That really "butters the toast" of the early C5 owners. As the final year of the C4 I can say I prefer the styling over the newer models. Entry and exit is challenging with the high sills but once you are in you know you are in for a treat. I recommend anybody contemplating a C4, purchase a 1996 LT4. A well maintained LT4 is one of the few C4's that has not only stopped depreciating but is now starting to climb in value."
"I have had this car for 15 years and it still runs like it is new. The electronic dash has great info and surprisingly accurate fuel info. Never had a major repair. The worse issues I had were to change the rear hatch gaskets and the passenger door handle came loose. Both repairs were under $200.
There have been minor cosmetic issues so I only gave the quality 4 stars."
