Pros

Performance, gas mileage, FUN to drive

Cons

Can't drive in winter

04 Z51 Coupe — Performance is obviously amazing... the LS1 motor is so torquey. Braking is very strong, and it handles very well (especially with the Z51 package). The passenger side window had a problem but that's pretty common from sitting in a garage for too long, didn't cost anything to fix. The motor and transmission seem solid as well. It's gorgeous on the outside but the interior is so so. The gas mileage is very good. Probably about 20/29. Of course the car is fun to drive!

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

Outstanding — My 6'2" frame and back problems are comforted by the ergo engineered 6 way power seats installed in my 2004 C5 vette. The C5 auto cockpit I've found by far is the most comfortable ride compared to other vehicles in its class. The deep leg box and dual lumbar adjust option sold me at first to seriously consider corvette for my retirement gift to myself after finishing a 36 year career in ship building design.

This Is Your Captain Speaking — This is my Best Friends Car. Its 5 yrs old and has 12K miles!!! He is affraid to let it fly and let me, whith him as my passanger!!! OMG!!!! The tires broke loose when I hit 2nd gear but I maintained controlled, the slid a bit in thrid, and by fourth I was at 110mph, less than 10 seconds! Handdling was superb. I was in shock, as was he....FASTEST and QUICKEST machine I have ever driven, which included a Bored and Ported dual carb 1969 Dodge Challeger that I owned.....

Great Car! — If i buy another vette then it will be with a manual transmission. All past vettes were manual so decided to try automatic on this one. 1 - With automatic trans i feel something is missing. 2nd, Don't like the ride when tranmission is in TOURING Mode; its too loose and car seems to skip/jump when making a turn on an uneven road. 3rd - Side mirrors are too small. Style and size need to be updated.

I think it rides like a truck and I think for the money that it should ride like a luxury car!  My Tahoe has a better ride...  But all Vettes are like that  and it does ride better than the '81...

Gorgeous!! — This is my husband's car. He loves Vettes--this is his 6th one. He just recently sold his classic '81... I like this one better because it is roomier inside and safer (i.e. airbags!). Lots of power, heads-up display make this a sweet driving car. I've only gotten to drive it twice :( BOSE stereo is nice when you are flying down the highway! Targa top is great in nice weather, and there is plenty of room in the back for a couple of bags when we head up to Tahoe for the weekend.

Pros

it's a car you can drive daily but looks way better than a porsche

Cons

the interior is, let's say, not what you'd expect from a car in this price category.
and it's my fathers and not mine

Affordable Sports Car — the corvette is no longer just a car with lots of power, it's also become quite ravy. The breaks are great (and about the size of a family-pizza), the suspension is AWESOME and I love the head up display. I also love the massive torque of the 5.7L V8 and its sound (it sounds not brashy but it roars deeply).

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.

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.
