Headlight bezels blew off at anything over 35 mph.

I didnt write that as a problem because i just keep spares in the glove box. :-)


I had a 99 C5 convertible for about 8 months. That's as long as I could put up with the rattley, squeaky, constantly breaking POS. The top leaked, even after repeated attempts at fixing by the dealer. The linkage inside the cloth top produced a black residue that leached through to the outside of the oak colored top making it look perpetually dirty. The windows rolled them selves down periodically of their own accord. Headlight bezels blew off at anything over 35 mph. The top when down, squeaked loud enough to be heard at 45 mph over the engine. Great performance, shockingly poor build quality.

Grip that, troll.
