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.

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)

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

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.

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

Gotta Love It! — I just love it! Performance is incredible! Quick acceleration, great braking and handling. Fuel filler door latch had to be replaced. Looks are superior. Tons of room for luggage. This car is so much fun to drive. I love it.

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.

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!

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.
