A little too civilized
Pros: Heads UP display & power
Cons: Voice commandThe car is a spectacular performer and without a doubt the most bang for the buck you can have without restoring something. The interior is better than the C5 but still needs work, the seats bolsters break down, the transparent top spiderwebs, the gas mileage is awesome I get an average of 22.3 per gallon HiTest, Better than my wife's 2010 TL. The navigation is weak the voice command is useless,magnetic shocks,Chrome wheels (2k) option, skip that stuff, the autotrans paddles are fair at best, when you put the car in S (shift) rather than Sport like the BMW, Acura, etc the trans still has the same shift points unless you use the paddles. I have every option $57.K and suggest that most is a waste, magnetic shocks,2 tops, etc. I suggest the 2lt which gives you side airbags, skip the 3lt, you can install HUD DIY for 360, get a TomTom 5inch, comp grey wheels (360) you will have a great vette, Had a 6 spd 05 before with z51 think that is the best vette for the money. Until GM puts a more responsive autotrans you should go with the 6speed unless it takes you an hour to go 5 miles to work. This is my 8th, still have a C2 & C3 and I will get another C6 but with 6spd.
Great American Sports Car
Cons: Interior tirmThis is my 4th corvette and it's my first c6. It is a great ride and a better overall value for it's price then any other american sports car on the market today.
Pros: 6spd trans.
Cons: nothingMy baby hasit all for any sports car enthusiast
Pros: The engine. Even the base model will out-class the competition
Cons: a bus has a better turn radius!Fastest thing I've ever been in! The interior is nothing to write home about but it really isn't as lack-luster as people say. The quality of the interior is very, very good; bravo Chevy! Besides, who really cares what the car looks like on the inside when it looks this good on the outside. I've had the previlage of driving this monster on the German Autobahn and can honestly tell you that it has European cars P**ing their pants!
Attitude adjustment on 4 wheels
Pros: 6 speed manual transmission
Cons: Irritating noises that come & goLove my Corvette coupe because it puts me in a great mood as I drive it. Rediculous power, slot car handling, and wonderful sounds from the optional dual mode exhaust. Optional lumbar support seats are surprizingly comfortable, best seat I have tried. Only complaint is the vibrations and buzzing noise coming from dash area. But happens only on rough asphalt roads, and even then, it comes and goes. I haven't let the dealer try to correct it yet, so maybe it isn't fair to complain to much. I've learned to enjoy using the ONStar & XM radio system. Car makes me feel like a youngster again!
Pros: Awesome power.
Cons: Road noise from tires is a more than I would like.Really a fun car to drive that will put a smile on your face. Performance and handling is fantastic.
