Sexy beast

"I've always wanted a Corvette and fell in love the C6 Corvette. I finally got the opportunity to buy one and I jumped on it. 6 speed manual is just a blast to drive. The LS2 Engine is a beast and when its time to up grade another Corvette will fill the void for sure. The only draw back is the top popping at times in turns but I have did some research and its an easy fix with inexpensive O-rings, I just need to buy some. The paint quality on the car is exceptional."

"This is the fastest production street car I have ever owned / driven. I'm still scared of the car and give it much respect. Not to knock the new C7 Z06 but I still can't warm up to it and in my opinion feel the ZR1 is much nicer. This car has been a dream of mine since it came out. I love it. It is still the show winner"

"Drives like a regular car until you don't want it to, then the beast shows up. This is the 3rd vette I've owned and is as good at my '95 convertible was but 100 more hp and bigger brakes. You can get out of trouble faster than you got into it. I've owned a lot of cars(over 30) and this is the only car I didn't have buyers remorse for the next day. And to top it all off, over 30 mpg regularly on the highway."

Cons: "Expensive to maintain"

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

"I've owned my corvette for 4 years now, and I love the car. Very fun to drive and looks great. I rated the comfort and convenience below half because, lets face it, it's not easy to get in and out of. A sports car after all. Once seated, very comfortable though, even on long trips. The downside is the cost of regular maintenance is particularly high. An example is a brake job, because the pads and disks wear together, you'll need all the pads and all four rotors every time. That means about $1500."
