Vehicle2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 7M)
ReviewWe purchased this car 11/25/2013. What fun to drive. 3LT, Dual roof, Aluminum Chrome Wheels, Automatic, Multi-mode exhaust, Carbon Fiber Interior, et. al. Cyber Gray Metallic. Great car a real head rotator. The sharpest looking Corvette since 1963! The comfort level is amazing for a Corvette. We were planning on purchasing a MB SLK 55 AMG, but this car offered a lot more for less. The sophistication of this car is mind boggling, and the fun-to-drive factor is off the chart. This car is a quantum leap forward on the evolutionary scale of the Corvette. We are planning some back road tours in this car. the car is not perfect, but for the money it is outstanding!
Best FeaturesWe love the heads up display and the variety of informational displays available to the driver. Separate comfort controls for the driver and the passenger. The trim fit and finish of the entire vehicle, including the interior. The sound of the tuned exhaust is wonderfully throaty and intimidating. The acceleration is fantastically awesome. The ECO mode fuel efficiency is impressive, 30 mpg at normal cruise of 70 mph on the interstate. Braking is crisp with no noticeable fade during normal spirited driving. We have the automatic, not the 7 speed manual, but the entry mode on this site only offers the 7 speed manual option.
Worst FeaturesThe infotainment system, most notably the navigation system appears to have been designed by Captain Peter Peach Fuzz of Rocky and Bullwinkle fame. The video provided by GM explaining how to use the system is pathetic at best. You can always call Onstar, but this is no excuse for the complexity and incoherence of the system. My copilot was unable to comprehend it and she can fly IFR!
