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).

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.

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.

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.

Pros

This car is a beauty to behold. It has excellent lines and it is easily recognizable as a Corvette, the American icon.

Cons

Although it has reasonable cargo space it in not meant to be a family car, of course, since it only has two seats.

Great Value And Performance! — Driving this car is an experience like none other. It has the aggressive stance and beautiful lines, yet it allows the driver to choose whether to compete at the track or just leisurely cruise on sunny days. This car handles both scenarios with ease. The acceleration is exhilarating. And even with the level of power you get with this car you can also get great (26 mpg) gas mileage!

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.

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.
