2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: A Thoughtful Audio Feature

April 11, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Has this ever happened to you? You get in your car at the A) car wash, B) valet, C) from the repair shop, you start your car, and the stereo blasts you right out of your seat. Naturally, the radio station isn't even in your presets.

Well, here's a very thoughtful feature in our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Maximum Startup Volume. Thank you, GM.

  • I put an aftermarket Blaupunkt head unit in my Scirocco 20 years ago that did that. Strangely, I haven't seen that feature again until now. I wish it was more prevalent.

  • great, one less prank I can play on people. Next they will make it so you can't set the fan speed on high, turn the car off and then fill the vents with fine dirt.

  • My 2010 VW Jetta TDI with the "Premium 8" audio system has this feature as well. Its actually one of my favorite features of the car.

    If my stereo was blasting in full volume after the valet drives it to you, I'd have to confront him and give no tip for the abuse he just did.
