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.
Cons: Car has to be in reverse while parked or dead batteryCar is resonably quiet and comfortable for such a powerful car. Quality is above average with little or no noise on regular streets and highways.I wish car was a little smaller in size with same engine choices.
'04 Z06 'BEST VETTE YET'
Pros: LS6 motor, especial How it piulls in 1st and 2nd gears to redline.(engine and exhaust sounds are such sweet music).
Cons: Seats & interior pieces , 1-4 shift skipI've owned many new Corvettes, Ferrari's , Porsche's and BMW's , but as far as dependebility, looks, and performance are concerned non can match my '04 Z06, with heads up, black w /special black/red intrior upgrade,wheel and tire upgrades. For the most part it.s bone stock as it came from the factory.' It looks better and is quicker by far than most cars costing 2 x's it's price. I replace the air filter and Mobil 1 synthetic (5W 30) every 2500 mi (never burned a drop btn changes). It's got new Toyo R1's , easily gets 18 city and 25 hgwy. The factory black paint even when new sucked, and at 40K mi, it needs a good deep cleaning/acid wash to remove wax buildup. All and all I'm hard pressed to find anything that looks as good or performs as well for the price . I'm currently looking for a replacment as I want to get down to one everyday driver. It will be hard to sell my Z06 especially after the great times and all of the smiles it's put on my face. I still get thumbs up every day and not just from other Corvette drivers. Lets get back to basics.. A Corvette under 50 grand, with a bit of cam shake/ sound (ala-) 63 fulie or '67 427/ 435, exhaust howl, round gauges, split window, and seats befitting a LEGEND! .
