Pros

Fantastic power and handling.  Brakes are tremendous.  Gas mileage is unbelievable.  Cargo capacity is very surprising - more than a Lincoln or Cadillac sedan.  Affordable supercar with low maintenance costs and more fun to drive than you can believe.

Cons

You'd really have to strain to find something to complain about.  Reviewers in magazines have complained about seat support in performance driving but since I don't take the car to a track to wring it out - they've been fine for me.

Best Car I've Ever Owned And I've Owned Nearly 30 Of Them. — For the price of a new cheapo Honda or Toyota you can have a car that will do 0 - 60 in 4.5 seconds, hit 170 MPH top end, get 32 MPG on the highway and carry 25 cubic feet of cargo. There's nothing else like it for the money

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very Nice Vette — great bang for the buck, excellent gas mileage especially on the highway, plenty of room for golf clubs, still get a lot of nice comments when people see this car, very clean inside and outside, will buy another Vette(s)

Beautiful Ride — Parts are a little pricey but I knew that before hand so it's fine. Fuel economy is excellent for a high performance car and the different modes for traction control are exceptional. Steering is responsive as well as the acceleration. Extremely comfortable to drive, takes a little effort to get in and out of. Other than that I love this car and would recommend it to anyone who wants a great performance car at a decent price.

C5 Corvette Z06 — The performance id outstanding. IMO the hardtop C5 is better looking than any C6 model. It is expensive to fix, but most work can be done if your halfway handy. Car is a blast to drive, gets lots of looks where ever I go.

Gorgeous to look at, staggeringly fast, very good handling and even good fuel consumption!

Cons

*Sigh* Left hand drive - like it really matters!

The American Dream — Contrary to what anyone says, THIS American car really drives! Handling is AT LEAST as good as a Boxster, it looks loads better, it sounds much better and it goes... my god, does it go! Corvettes are silly fast (especially the manuals) in standard form, so the new Z06 and ZR1 are utterly incredible! Super-car performance and looks for about 1/5 of the price - decent fuel consumption too - if you don't like 'em, you're just crazy...

Great Car — Great vehicle. Though being taller than average, any sports car was difiicult to fit. The vet provides more leg and head room than any other sports care i tried. Car has fantastic handleing and power. Never get the time to drive it much.

Cons

difficult to work on and hard to find people that know what thier doing with these

More Speed And Turned Heads For Half The Price,,,,but ........ — Its fast what can I say? It beats most cars out there STOCK. Why buy a little 4 cy and sink a bunch of money into it when you can just get a fast car to start with and fix that up :-) You have to respect this car though because the back end cuts loose very easily despite traction control and active handling. The car can be very hard to work on (you have to jack the car up just to replace a turn signal) and some projects seem almost impossible (replacing a fog light).

Sporty, Fun, Attractive, Very Good Condition — Love driving it in all seasons but especially when it is warm enough to put the top down. Overall a fun sports car with a lot of power.Great acceleration, braking, and cornering. Reliable engineering and quiet running. A real attention getter on the road

An Awesome Sports Car That's Fun To Drive And Will Not Give You Many Problems — The performance of this car is outstanding. I have modified mine to perform even better with a few simple bolt ons. The B&B Bullet exhaust brought the car to life. It is one of the deepest, fullest sounding exhausts on the market and gave it an old school muscle car sound. Vettes are fairly cheap to own. Gas mileage is amazing, 20-24 around town and 30-36 on trips! Im not joking. It's geared perfectly to do this. You can find C5 Corvettes for under 20 grand, so it's the best performance car you could think of buying on the cheap.
