"Is anyone to old for this car? Always looked with envy at the Corvette because with family and such it was out-of-reach. Now with the kids gone the dream came true. At 64 I feel 40 years younger in this machine. What a fantastic car. The acceleration and handling beat anything out there. I may be bias, but get your hands on one of these before its too late."
"i've got a 06 z51 corvette that i am in love with. i've had it just about a year now and i use it for my every day car. the performance is wold class and the comfort is better thin any car ive owned. Me and my wife love the fact that we can take the hard top off on thows nice days and ride where ever. I can say that i will now all ways be a die hard corvette fan."
"I bought this car new off the show room floor. This is the best bang for the $$$ you can get, powerful performance, styling, and reliability. In three years the only thing that I've had to do are the brakes and that is because I went to the track. My only minor complaint is that the interior could be upgraded."
"This has been my daily driver for the past 15 months/19000 miles and has been flawless. It's also been worked out on some interesting back roads in Nevada and California with the same flawless result. I'm no longer a boy-racer so I don't care much about performance at the ragged edge, but in the everyday real world this is the best car I've ever owned. I know I'm supposed to lust after a manual trans, but in actuality the automatic in "S" mode is probably more efficient than I am, and if you punch the paddles at about 5K, it will give you a pretty present. There have been no maintenance issues, brakes and tires aren't even close to needing replacement, it gets 30mpg on the freeway, and it's comfortable for multi-day road trips. After considerable experience with a Miata, a 1.8T GTI, an R-Tune 350Z, and a 911, I wouldn't swap my Vette for any of them."
"I bought the base coupe with 2LT interior and 6 speed paddleshift auto......WOW! I cannot say enough about this sports car. It's fast and easy to live with, quality is 5 star. We took a trip from Michigan to the Rockies and Yellowstone and back. We averaged 29.5 MPG @ 75-80 MPH with runs upto 160 MPH with all our camping gear and 2 large adults. Rides very good but still handles excellent. LS3 435Hp engine blows you away while sipping fuel. Love the paddleshift (no more clutch) for the backroads, stick it in drive for in town. After 6 months the best car I've ever owned"
"I have owned this vehicle now for 12 months. It has been absolutely perfect so far and no problems of any kind. Performance is unbelievable and I have owned 11 previous Corvettes. This is the best one yet by far!!"
"And best one of them all. I have had minor problems with my battery, it goes dead sometimes after only 1 week of inactivity. I don't drive the car in the rain which means living in seattle it doesn't get driven allot, which could contribute to my battery issue."
"I've owned performance sedans and coupes for the last 30+ years (BMW 535is, Alfa GTV, Subaru SVX, Infiniti Q45 and G35x, etc.) and have over 10,000 miles on my 2007 base coupe. The Corvette's balance and performance are in another world -- plus I get over 20MPG in everyday driving and 29+MPG in 70+mph touring! Exceptional engineering at any price and astounding for $50,000. After driving the stock Corvette at Spring Mountain Raceway for over two hundred miles, I am extraordinarily impressed with the responsiveness, braking, handling and power. The car has so much capability that I could not even approach its potential. Plus, it is very forgiving. If performance is your primary goal, the Corvette is a superb choice."
"I have dreamed of owning a Corvette since I was making models of '60's vintage cars when I was in my teens, however, I held off buying one until the '08 model year due to different gripes the car magazines had on such things as steering feedback, transmission mating to the engine and too much plastic in the interior. I recently picked up my '08 Vette and I am truly impressed with the car. I got the 4LT package with the upgraded interior, Z51 performance package, upgraded exhaust and the removable, transparent roof. All four options are well worth the money. What most impressed me (besides the expected awesome power and handling) is the fit and finish in the car. This car is so well made that the quality exceeds any of the foreign made cars I have owned (Toyota, Honda, Acura, Audi, etc.) in the past 10 years. I highly recomment that if you can afford to buy a car in the $50K range that you test drive the Vette. Truly a one of a kind driving experience."
"This 2006 Coupe is my 5th Vette. It is clearly the best of the bunch (My first was a 1970 two top conv w/454cc/390hp/490tq). each one got better in engineering, performance and styling. Yes, they can have a tweak or two, but what "sports car" hasn't? Overall the quality is quite good, notwithstanding a rattle here and there. I love the combination of comfort AND performance, with enough luggage space for all my Scuba gear. There is nothing in its class that competes favorably; it's in a class by itself. I'm planning to move up to a Z06 next time. The extra money I would have to spend to get even marginally better overall performance and value, I put into the house so I'd have a place to garage my Vette. Are you feeling me?"
"Truly a phenomenal vehicle in which you couldn't get a better bang for your buck elsewhere. I've had absolutely no problems whatsoever. Every second spent in this car is another joyful moment of pure fun! Some say the interior isn't up to par with the competition, but if you must have a better quality interior the option is now available for 2008."
"Black 2009 corvette, shown this car and won 8 first place and 1 best of show. Engine covered in crystal red and front spoiler, gps, back cover and mat, log console, Z06 2 wheels, cover , stretch cover for front, more extras.
Great car to drive and no scratches anywhere. Great buy"
"bang for the buck this car destroys all comers. and comfort? im 6-3 280 and fit better in this car than any other sport /performance car . its affordable art,when im not driving it i just stare at it in my garage, often leaving the top down and the ceiling fan on so she stays cool.when i got her my wife came home and saw her and said , oh wow!!! "now i get it" . and my insurance stayed the same from my wifes old sebring."
Pros: "Style, power, sound, features with 3lt package"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Love this car, My ninth Corvette, Always wanted the zo6. This car will leave you speechless, The sound and power of the v8 will make you think of excuse's to drive it every chance you get. If you want it now is the time to get it"
