Phil's 'vette — Nothing to dislike. Great for long trips, getting over 30 MPG. The only 'Vette in the Columbia University faculty garage. This is my daily driver but also used for family vacations. It always gets an appreciative nod from our friends.

Red Vette — This car is perfect in every way. Every time I drive it is a thrill. It handles great with lots of power. It is also comfortable and can be use for luxury as well. Car brake great as well. Lowered 1" to handle better & radio flyer head light for better looks and visibility.

Best Corvette I Have Ever Owned... 1 Of 3... — This is a great car for the road. Went to Florida form Chicago area last sept avg. 27.2 mpg. smooth ride. lots of space for our stuff. Great looking car with the bright Red body and black glass trim.. Prior to our vacation I installed a new set of Nitto Tires. They are not run flats but a can of fix a flat in the back takes care of that issus. Lots of Corvette owners are putting on Nittos as they are less expensive than run flat but more importantly they are quieter and softer ride Corvette logo rear cargo mat and floor mats.

Fun! Sporty. Not An Everyday Driver. — It is very fun to drive. Lots of power. Great handling. With a stick shift it is very difficult to multi-task, Which is probally a good thing. One thing i dislike is after washing the car the mirrors drip water onto the door for quite awhile. Boo.

Awesome — Like everything about this car. No dislikes at all. It is so much fun to drive. Runs fantastic. Love the white convertible top. The acceleration, braking and handling are amazing! There are no noises or blind spots. Never been in the shop yet. The gas mileage is reasonable. Maintenance and repair costs haven't been an issue yet. The look of the car is great and it is very comfortable.

Gas mileage, Performance (mid 12 sec quarter miler), head turner, comfortable seats, good luggage space.

Gas mileage in the city, 400 horsepower in a 500 -600 HP world.

Z06 Beauty — This was my "I survived Iraq", gift to myself. Very nice car, good gas mileage on the highway. still turns head after 10 years, fast and fun. This is the car you find yourself driving everywhere for no reason. I've driven this car from west coast to east coast, also did a couple of laps on Mazda Raceway (Laguna Seca). Very comfortable and fun ride. On the down side: once the key FOB battery died it cost about $200 to get it working again, however no one could seem to get it working; and just like the Viper there is a little engine heat in the cockpit. Not nearly as bad as the Viper. Overall a wonderful, good looking performance car.

Z06 Corvette — Love this car and think that the LS6 of 2004 is under-rated. This thing is scary fast. Gas milage is pretty good on the highway as long as you keep your foot out of it. This car is a very solid built one and I love it.

Pros

surprisingly good traction off the line, easily powershifted gearbox, strong clutch movement

Cons

bad road manners, for a daily driver the gearbox feels like it belongs in a tractor, simply can't maneuver the corners

Typical American Racer — great car if all you want is to go to the track, straight line performance is excellent but as soon as you go to turn everything goes to hell. The balance is simply "off" poor weight transfer for a "supercar" category.

Fun To Drive — Great car to drive on the open interstate or highway. you can pass anything you want even the gas station 20mpg all day long. love that music the motor makes in the mid to upper rpm band and the radio is good too.

Best Car I Ever Owned — Well since my children are grown, I figured it was time for me and my husband to start living again . We go cruising on the weekends. He loves to be the driver and I don't mind, I get to look at the nice places we pass by.
