The 08 zo6 is a elegant muscle car. It corners smoothly at speed.

Power Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z worse.
"430 hp vs 332 hp. enough said"
Handling Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z worse.
"I drove the370 hard for 7 years and was never comfortable when cornering at speed. It always felt like if it broke loose you would end up in the ditch or worse whereas the vette is flatter and seems to handle the Gs more comfortably. The back end slides into the turn to help you through it."
Looks/Style Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z worse.
"while I loved the 370s nostalgic look - more like 280s. The C6 lines are elegant compared to the muscular nissan."
Front Seats Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z better.
"The combo cloth leather is cooler"
Back Seats Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z worse.
"Neither car has them."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z worse.
"the cargo area is larger and the cargo cover is more functional"
Family Car Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z worse.
"Neither car is a family car."
Value Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z better.
"An 09 370z well equipped would have been at least 10k cheaper than the vette."
Would Buy Ranked 2009 Nissan 370Z worse.
"Its a corvette. While I have always loved the Zcar( have owned 3 versions) Every red blooded american speed freak has dreamed of the vette."

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 58 getting in and out without damaging the bolster s a breeze. I dont 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 wont fix run flats and most dont have them in stock If a tire is needed the car is down. Service is fair as there are Corvette Specialists at MB Chevy where I take it for oil changes and tire. Many common repairs are expensive on this car. Harmonic balancer and fuel pump sender could cost $2000 to fix. An oil Pan gasket cost me $800+ to replace. I never felt the car would hold up and stay reliable. The electronics are extreme and gremlins are common as well. Heck Car and Drivers 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 and put aside a slush fund for repairs. I am moving to a Miata for reliability and a more genuine roadster experience.

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

Pros: Pure American Sports car at a great value.
Fun to drive
Fun to clean
Great Tech BT,NAV,  Heads Up Display, IPOD

Cons: Premium Fuel Only as expected
Ride can be a tad harsh

Tint is nice, cold air intake is the one for this car as it adds 40 rwtq, viper hood will keep temps down, very affordable and paint is top quality/ always looks new and even wet everywhere she goes... Ive never come close to even losing control when concentrating and competing just to test limits. This is a show car and Id rather have this car, at under $50/mo to insure. Very affordable, very fast, looks are outstanding.

Family Car Ranked 2008 Dodge Viper worse.
"This is not just a Corvette, it is a Z06 with about 17k mi and still smells new. Many add-ons to increase performance but do enhance the looks too. It is simply way more affordable than any of the cars I have due to the year of the vehicle, but if I was told it was new, just simply never sold and the odometer read 0mi, however, the car remained exactly the same...Id definitely believe the seller and buy the car."
Would Buy Ranked 2008 Dodge Viper worse.
"The dodge Viper is more expensive, crazy to pay insurance, cannot handle like the Z06 (or even a Camaro w/ the right driver)...Looks are outstanding but since Ive changed multiple parts/hood too, on the Z06...along w/ the outstanding paint on the Z06...the Viper may only be better to gold digging members of the opposite sex to find a counterpart that is rich."

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: classic power, very comfortable with just the right amenities

Cons: tight entry/exit spots are difficult

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: 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!!

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

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.

Pros: Classic Corvette Convertible... fun to drive either with the top up or down.

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

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.

Pros: Terrific Acceleration

Cons: Interior build quality
