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.

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!

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

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!!

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.

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.
