Great Sports Car For The Money. — This thing is blazing fast! It's american, so quality is what you'd expect, although it has quite a few luxury features. I love not having to take the keys out of my pocket or unlock the passenger door! Gas mileage averages 26-28 on long trips, 15-18 in town, 10-12 if you nail it every time you start. Way too much fun to drive!

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.

Worth The Money, Much Better Than The C5! — Sleek, Sexy, Fast, and Sharp! This is a car I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a less expensive sports car as opposed to the traditional sports car (Porsche's, BMWs, Nissan Z's) Most assuredly a fun car to drive!!

Can't Beat Owning A Corvette — Performance - acceleration. 30K miles and tight as a drum. Corsa exhaust, Cray wheels, black-outs. 18MPG/ city, 26-28 mpg highway. Only thing I'd change - the shifter is a little sloppy - 6spd, not an automatic. Not that I need it, but an attention getter.

My Cobra's A Vette — The "looks" it generates. First year of the newest body style and the last year of the "LeMans Color". Look for excuses to drive it. Use it primarily in local car shows. Upon my initial ownership, found it had (2) broken wires in the harness, resulting in erroneous error of service the traction system. Clear Blue removable top squeeks now and then. Mileage is good, and Fun Factor is "OFF THE CHAIN !

Very Impressed — Bought a yellow 2005 conv used in Dec 08. It was very well cared for with many upgrades to include Corsa exhaust, Z51, ceramic brakes, HUD, 6 spd manual, Bose stereo and some other cosmetic touches. Have found, however, some minor electronic glitches that are very annoying. My Service Handeling System Light keeps coming on. I traced it to the Steering Wheel Position Sensor after much research. Believe I have it fixed, but what a pain to have the light come on in the dash every day. Also had the engine light come on and no code displayed. Cleared it by disconnecting the battery and reseting the system. In addition, the radio volume kept jumping all over the place. Tracked it to the auto speed adjustment for the radio volume. Dealer told me I would have to relace the head unit. Just turned it off with no other problems. I love the car, but the electric problems are a pain.

Modified Corvette C6 — Awesome car to drive, it goes from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 sec, top speed of 300 km/h and take corners at high speeds. It has a 6L V8 engine with +450HP after a few modification's. Looks great, sound awesome and is just lots of fun to drive unless roads are wet because then it is not possible to get enough traction.

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.
