2005 Corvette — I loved driving the car the fit and finish is perfect. I do have a few complaints about the car though. The Cost of maintenance is too high. Things were constantly breaking and they are not cheep to replace. My only other performance complaint is the clutch. It was spongy and very inconsistant. I ended up selling it because of all the problems I was having on it but I think that it is safe to say that I would love to own another one. I would just never buy another used one.

Pros: Power on demand

Cons: clutch and constant maintance issue.

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.

Pros: Great fun to drive

Cons: Police give you a ticket for doing donuts on the main road - it was an accident!

Utterly Magnificient! The Best 'till The Gt-r Arrived. —

The truck you see behind me and the Corvette is the one that brought to this truly wonderful day 5 supercars. First, let's start with Miss Kentucky, the Vette. This C6 had 404hp (440 for the 2008 model) and a 6-speed manual gearbox that was quite manly, but it was manageable, so I actually liked it ... just like the whole car, to be honnest from the beginning. It looks superb, the V8 sounds great, and on the track, it was able to follow the Ferrari and the Lamborghini, leaving the Aston and the Porsche in its dust! Not bad for a $US 50,000 car! On the road, French and bumpy roads should I add, everything was perfect ... till we went over the speed limit (there was a Toyota LandCruiser in front of us to check that the police wasn't here). Then, the magnetic suspensions didn't seem to bother anymore of confort and I found myself a couple of times driving like an Englishman, on the wrong side of the road! Apart from that, it was fantastic! I loved the Targa roof, easy to store in the trunk, I loved the Heads-up Display, like on a fighter jet, and I loved the performance. We were not nice with these cars, but the Corvette just didn't mind. The brakes were red, a little bit damaged, but it kept on braking and braking, as good as the others (well, much better than the V8 Vantage, that's for sure)! The only other drawback is the stability control (ESP for Bosch, Active Handling for GM) ... it worked on the road... thank God! But DO NOT, DO NOT turn it off! If you want to avoid crashing at least, because somehow, without this electronic aid, the back feels twitchy at the limit, and no matter how hard I like to train, I'm not a professional racing driver, so I spun, again and again! When you do slide, it's wonderful, but on the road, especially on a slippery one, just let the ESP on! Anyway, great car and really well priced!

Pros: It's wonderful to look at, to drive (whether for cruising or chasing a Ferrari on a track), it's a Targa (so you can enjoy the open air feeling) and it's not that expensive.

Cons: Doesn't have 4-wheel drive, so unless you're a drifting God, keep the ESP on! And the V8 does drink ...

Best Bang For The Buck, Period. — With just "Bolt-Ons*", the car went from very fast to wickedly fast. The exhaust and engine noise is overwhelming sometimes. Interior is very comfortable for this kind of car. The navigation and on board display is too complicated to use at first, but after almost 3 years of ownership I think I finally figured it out. Steering feedback is good, but could be better. Brakes are fine for street and minor track use, but they do start to fade after heavy track usage. The only real dislike for this car: must shift to reverse inorder to shut off, otherwise the car's electrical system will not shut down completely = dead battery. *Vararam, Corsa 3.5", 4:10s, AR stainless headers, 160 thermostat & Tune @ECS.

Pros: Fast (always hunting for 911s & Vipers)

Cons: You better have good clutch & throttle control or else, NO TRACTION!

Great Value And Performance! — Driving this car is an experience like none other. It has the aggressive stance and beautiful lines, yet it allows the driver to choose whether to compete at the track or just leisurely cruise on sunny days. This car handles both scenarios with ease. The acceleration is exhilarating. And even with the level of power you get with this car you can also get great (26 mpg) gas mileage!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This car is a beauty to behold. It has excellent lines and it is easily recognizable as a Corvette, the American icon.

Cons: Although it has reasonable cargo space it in not meant to be a family car, of course, since it only has two seats.

Best Sports Car I Have Driven. — The Corvette is all I could have asked for in repect to perfomance, handeling, fuel mileage,(25000 miles average over that time 25mpg)build quality,etc. As a long time Corvette owner I am really impressed by the overall experience of this vehicle compared to the ones I have owned over the years Updated: The car has 32000 miles on it and still have not had a issue. The mileage has climbed to average 26.5. Of course about 60 to 70% of my driving is on highways. 11-26-13 The car now has 44000 miles and it still continues to be all I could have asked for.

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

Pros: The top reason to own this car is pure performance for the $$

Cons: There is nothing I can honestly say bad about the car
