I had been burned by Porsche but still wanted a performance car. Never owned a Chevy. Never will own another Porsche!

Dream Realized — if you stay off the accelerator on the interstate, 28-30mpg is very realistic. of course, that isn't as fun as punching it past unsuspecting drivers - just pick your passing opportunities wisely or get ready for your local state troopers to rack up those license points.

Pros

This is the perfect stock car so I couldn't find the heart to tear her down and put on racing parts when I have other cars for the track.

Cons

NONE for a C6 Z06!!

Perfect Daily Driver All Of The Way To Taking Her Out On The Track!! — I love the fact that the tint on the rear of this car keeps it cool, there are some billet items that set it apart from other black Z06's, the car is stock and runs perfectly so I cannot tare the car apart and re-build it to run the track when she is already perfect.

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

Pros

Powerful, quiet, handles like a dream, comfortable, practical, looks like it's going 100 MPH even when it's parked.

Cons

Reliability is just okay, some rattles, tires and brakes don't last very long

Everyone Should Own A Corvette At Least Once In Their Lives — I bought this car new off the lot in 2008 and have loved owning it and driving it ever since. I like everything about it, the pushbutton ignition (which is pretty common now I guess), the comfortable seats, the power band, the braking, the cargo space, the visibility. This car is very low to the ground. It is as easy to drive on the highway as it is on a city street. Imagine a 430hp cadillac, that's basically what this car is. When you see one of these out on the road, trust me, it's just as much fun to drive as it looks. As much as I love this car, it hasn't been trouble-free; the headlights stopped working (new fuse box) and the transmission cable snapped, so I couldn't shift the car. The rear end made a grinding sound. The glove box and console lid latches broke. The door handle solenoid broke. Most of these things were repaired under warranty, but then they shouldn't have broken in the first place. Also, I used to own a 1990 Corvette and the feedback of that car was outstanding, you really felt like you were part of the car...these newer Corvettes don't feel like that, there is a sense of isolation from the road, but maybe the Z51 or Z06 feel more like sports cars. All in all, I still love this car and don't regret buying it, it has been the best car I have ever owned.

Classic Corvette Fun — Purchased slightly used with one prior owner. Very low mileage and in great condition. Will use as a pleasure driver so the mileage should remain low. The C6 Corvettes have not changed very much from model year to model year so a 2008 -09 -10 are all pretty much the same.

Fun Car — Love the speed and handling. Could use better quality materials inside. reliable car though for how exotic it is. Gas mileage is also better than expected for a car with this much power and performance. Would definitely recommend this vehicle to someone looking for raw power.

Head Turner! — Great car at an affordable price. I've used this as an "everyday vehicle" and I'll definitely own another Corvette!! Pop the top and cruise around. The power, the looks, the low rumble while sitting at the stop light...just what I was wanting when I bought this car.

Cant Wait To Buy A C7` — I really love the C6 vett, I cant wait to get my hands on a new C7 though. If your in the market for a car that you can enjoy and doesnt hurt the bank on fuel than the C6 is my choice.

My 15 Year Wait Is Over! — After a long and arduous battle through the automotive jungle I have survived to tame the wild beast of legend. The Chevrolet Corvette is the most amazing car on American roads today, it is arguably the most fascinating car the american public can own and drive that is totally ours, built for the last 60 years to be enjoyed worldwide but mostly for us hmble americans. Great gas mileage, huge storage space and acceleration that rivals anything from Euorpe. Good job Chevrolet! and think it can be parked right beside the Chevy Cruze and get a $30.00 oil change by the same mechanic.

Fantastic Performance Sports Car — I have the base model with 'only' 430 horses, but oh my gosh this thing is quick. It might be the tires are worn, but with TC on, a bit of throttle and it fishtails all over the road. And with it off, well, let's just say I've been sideways more often than I can count. This ain't no Camry, you can't just slam the pedal down (unless you're aimed straight). In other words, I'm having a lot of fun. It looks great and the leather interior is really nice. I know there is too much interior plastic for some, but it doesn't bother me. I fixed the squeaky roof easily enough, but haven't found the other rattles. Mileage has been a respectable 21-25 MPG. Love it.
