"Every time I buy the hottest Corvette, they come out with a badder one. The value of this car fell like a lead rock once the 2014 Corvette came out. I have had 26 Corvettes and my 2014 is my last one. The '07 car was perfect and I only put 4800 miles on it. Not good for long trips, just not enough comfort and room, but it got 27 mpg on the road at 77 mph. Buy a used one and save $50K. I lost that much in 7 years and only sparse usage."

"I bought this car used with 1200 miles. I have driven it about 7,000 miles. It never stops delivering smiles. Only thing it doesn't have is the Magnetic Suspension so 9/10 on comfort. Unbelievable power and economy. No issues ever. If you want more power there are many opportunities to increase it up to 1000 hp. How much do you want to spend to go fast. My third Corvette and not my last. They just get better every year. Grand Sport looks and performance are fantastic."

"Went from BMW 325i to a 2010 LT1 Vette with only 9200 miles. A dream since age 16 came true at age 65. 430HP, can use regular fuel, AWESOME TORQUE, easy to work on for minor stuff like oil changes. Holds road better than my 325i did. Not practical for carrying a lot of stuff or concealing your stuff from view, but yoiu have to give up some things for the joy of the fastest acceleration this side of $100,000. The Base model Vette is an incredible value and will outperform most cars costing twice as much. The ZO6 and ZR1's are simply insanely powerful. If you feel the need for speed or want to impress the young ladies, the Vette is the car you want. 22MPG on average with 30% city and 70% rural/highway. The improvement of the C6 over the C5 makes the C6 worth the extra cost. Braking and cornering best I have seen in 49 years of driving."

Pros: "Sporty,fun to drive"

Cons: "extreme wind noise,top out&cup holders small"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"The C6 vette is a fun car to drive but could be improved upon. The car is very noisy with the top out, the cup holders were only designed for two small or possibly medium drinks and the handling becomes a bit squirrely on roads with dips but handlers well in turns. The interior appears to be somewhat cheap,the C7 is much improved. The fit and finish is great and the 6.2 LS3 engine has incredible torque from 4000 RPM up. Overall this is a great weekend warrior which is why I purchased it."
