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)

Best Sports Car I Have Driven. — The Corvette is all I could have asked for in repect to perfomance, handeling, fuel mileage,(25000 miles average over that time 25mpg)build quality,etc. As a long time Corvette owner I am really impressed by the overall experience of this vehicle compared to the ones I have owned over the years Updated: The car has 32000 miles on it and still have not had a issue. The mileage has climbed to average 26.5. Of course about 60 to 70% of my driving is on highways. 11-26-13 The car now has 44000 miles and it still continues to be all I could have asked for.

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

Love-it — Fun to drive and look at. Plenty of power, and it handles great. Smooth ride with a pleasant interior. It actually gets really great gas mileage for a 400hp car. I've seen 28mpg on highway trips, and 22mpg in the city.

Pros

I like the design, power and torque. Very smooth acceleration, next thing you know you're doing 120mph.

Cons

Minor electrical problems and too much torque...tired can't grip on the launch off, have to take off slowly at first.

Performance Review Of The C6 Corvette — Sleek design and awesome performance. 1/4 mile time 12.7 seconds and 0 to 60mph in 4.4 seconds. With 405 hp, 400lb/ft of torque and 19/29 mpg...not a lot of cars under 100k can out run it. For a V8 6.0 liter, 29 mpg on the freeway is incredible. The Lexus GS400 hybrid only gets 25mpg on the freeway...how odd is that?! For a car around 50k that's in the same league as Porsche and Ferrari's...its one of the best bang for your bucks in terms of performance.

Great fun to drive

Cons

Police give you a ticket for doing donuts on the main road - it was an accident!

Like Everything About It — Its very fast - 0-60 in about 4 sec, little under the standard as I added Corsa Exhausts and cold air induction. Longest I have ever owned a car.

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.
