Exciting To Drive — No negatives if this is the type of vehicle you desire. Have gotten 27 MPG on trips. Very reliable & super responsive. No other auto of mine has ever handled this well! Premium fuel is recommended, but it will perform well on any grade (most important if you've ever bought fuel in Canada or outside USA).

Awesome Car — The power is great, could not believe how it all just comes together when you drive it. This car runs with the $100,000 ZR1 at a fraction of the price. Would be a great car to show at car shows once you made it yours.

I Love It. Bought Another One Almost Just Like It. — Not much to dislike. This car is amazing and is one of the best overall sports cars you can buy for under 30k. It gets great gas mileage and turns plenty of heads and performs great at the track. I will miss this car but the one I bought is just like it.

Pros

pleasure to drive, more power than can use on todays modern highways, all options provide luxury and performance... love the heads-up display!

Cons

difficult for even the dealer to correctly fix certain problems, sometimes takes multiple trips or tows to the dealer before is fixed

Luxury And Ultra High Performance — This Z51 has great power, all the luxury features of a cadillac, very fun to drive on long road trips (such as Vegas), defintely a head-turner at car shows, but repairs can sometimes be costly and taxing on the owner.

Excellent — I've owned this car since it was brand new in 2005 and I still love it. It drives great - handles well, lots of power, and it's very comfortable. The braking is exceptional. The seats are fully adjustable and "hug" you, making you feel secure. Great sound system.

Wow! — I need more cars like this! This is by far the most fun car that I have owned. This is my sixth Corvette and they just keep getting better. I cant wait to get a new C7 in the summer.

Beautiful Lemanns Blue Paint And Very Good Looking Car!! — Performance and handling are superb. It is well equiped to get out of its own way. Climate controls are easy to use for both the passenger and driver. Power everything...from seats to mirrors(darken at night..no more blinding lights from behind) to windows to doors( touch pad on outside, button on inside)

Great Site — Awesome Vette except for recent electrical problem. I have owed 0ver 30 years 4 corvettes a 67,69.80.05. I would like to have 67 back .but by far 05 best performance, ride and handling. My son had 1997 Vette I thought they could not improve ride much more, but C6 seems a little better. I may be a bit bias. But other Corvette owners would say the same about their car. Gas mi great. I bought car used w/27000 now 58000. I never buy extened warranties but my C6 has a lot electronics i would reconcider bying warranty. They can charge crazy money for extended warranty huge mark up ,so if you buy extended warranty be sure you know whats covered. Plus you can work them on price most cases 1/2 or better then what they ask, (I was Former Auto sales manager 25 years ago) and somethings don't change. A lot dealers make their profit on the aftersell and if they can't make large profit they will settle for small profit. Its better then 0 profit.

Wow, Sexy, Looks Much Newer Than It Is. It Looks Like A 2010 — I love the looks, power and handle, I dislike the fact that it is not as comfortable as other larger cars, but it is a sports car after all. It looks much newer than a 2005 model. BEAUTIFUL COLOR. NICE
