Great Sports Car Despite Being A Gm Vehicle — SOLD Like Harley the Corvette was Killed twice and brought back from the dead. (The new C7 is the latest to come back from the dead and in my opinion GM over designed the Transformer looking car with the Camaro rear end.But this is not a C7 review. The C6 will be my last Corvette. It does everything well. Especially the 08+ with the improvements I find the car comfortable and at 5'8" getting in and out without damaging the bolster s a breeze. I don't track the car so i have no opinion there except that I am sure the car will out do my driving skills. The power and torque is great when needed. It moves from 50-90 in a blink of an eye. I would only own this car as a convertible because two seat vehicles IMO should be convertibles. I have after market BlueTooth via GMs Pal system and an aftermarket PAL 2 which puts the BT and Ipod unit behind the waterfall where the XM radio circuit box is instead of in the dash behind the stock radio. MUCH better. This is my second Corvette in a year. I had an 05 earlier this year and liked it well enough but it was a manual and I prefer the Paddle Shifting Auto. I looked for and found an 08 with low miles from a private first owner. (Dealers are out of their minds with their prices) The 08 brings 36 more horses to the table with the LS3 engine. The auto transmission is slushy except when using the paddle shifters where it tightened up a little. But I am not aggressive so that does not bother me. Hell I drive it like a Lincoln The factory tires are crap and at 16k miles I am replacing them early.. They are original and hardened and the road noise reflect that. I will be putting on non Run Flats soon for a smoother ride. I have AAA. Many more tire centers will deal with a normal tire. Many won't fix run flats and most don't have them in stock If a tire is needed the car is down. Service is good as there are Corvette Specialists at MB Chevy where I take it for oil changes and tire. Now I have not had any issues Heck Car and Driver's review 2014 C7 car blew an engine as have a few owners in the Corvette Forums. GMs and dealers response to those issues is not inspiring. So if you want to drive a fast car for little money, Not too many cars can compete with the 08 Corvette. But buy used first or second owner car with lots of records and original parts.

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.

Pros

Light weight, 505 hp with a warranty, sexy, great fuel mileage (30+
highway).

Cons

Expensive, having to deal with GM.

2008 Jetstream Blue Corvette Z06 — Performance for the price, there is no equal. It'll run circles around the exotics for a fraction of the price. Build quality is pretty decent, however my former 07 C6 was built better than my current 08 Z06.

2008 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe — First of all, this car is stunningly beautiful! It drives like a dream and is scary fast. I absolutely love driving this car. So far, I haven't had one single problem with it. This is by far the best car I have ever owned. Custom modifications are abundantly available......so much so that it can quickly become an addiction. So far, I've added custom interior leather, cold air intake, and a Borla Exhaust. You only live once....so, go for it!

Pros

Gorgeous Exterior and Interior, Mind Blowing Performance. Under 100k. Outperform's 95% of your 150k-300k exotic cars.

Cons

Stock OEM Navigation system & BOSE surround sound system. Given the price tag of 2k, I would not rate this Nav system as top quality when you can go aftermarket and get triple the quality for half the price.

2008 Corvette Z06 — *Exterior: Beautiful exterior, wide body, has that stealth super car appearance and slammed aggressive stance. *Interior: Interior is very classy with beautifully lighted guages, glossy carbon fiber center console and comfy leather seats. The dash is wrapped in leather too. *Performance: Tires are real thick and meaty which grip the road amazing. The engine is 7.0 liter LS7, V8, 505hp. The weight is around 2950 pounds which is unbelievably light for a car of this caliber. This car has been taken to a 10.9 sec quarter mile bone stock which is mind blowing.

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

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.
