Have had trouble and the local dealers
here in Lake County Florida are real
Have tried both... both rip you silly...
Sorry, but I guess I had
expectations... for 45k that were too
high... I am replacing the car with a
BMW 500 series
It is fast when it runs right
Better service and support from the
dealers. They actually refused to honor
the warranty and put me off. What
should have been covered cost me about
a thousand bucks to fix. No more for me.
I have to say this car is a very good
deal for the money. The car is fun to
drive and it is easy on gas when at
highway speeds. The handling is world
class. First and second gear
acceleration is very good. This car
will break the rubber loose when
floored while rolling at speed. I have
had problems with the gas guage that
has yet to be fixed. The power window
motor on the pass side has gone out 2x.
Also, the remote has gone out 2x. The
steering lock has malfunctioned after
it was replaced on a recall. The
transmission pops out of reverse often.
I still love the car.
HUD is great. Competitive driving mode
is nice. It will let you play but keeps
you out of trouble. Handling and ride
Better gear box. Fix the electronic
bugs. More power or better rear gear
ratios would help 3rd gear and higher
acceleration. Offer a 3.90 rear end.
A true American sports car. Former
Porsche owner - won over. Bowling
Green w/Tan top, love color combo,
obviously for others as they have
discontinued the color. Modest interior
design but coming from a Porsche,a step
up. Problems w/fuel gauge (6x)
replaced tanks, senders, etc.. A/C
condensation leaking onto passenger
floor - my own interior
swimming pool.. electrical issue
with radio, etc., staying on after
engine shut down and door opening. Told
this is not a big deal but for a 55K
car it should not there in the first
Ride, Performance, Handling, Comments
Interior upgrades to dash and either
make the cup holder well bigger or get
rid of it.
The Corvette has been a great car.
Acceleration is phenomenal! I have
owned a 1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS5, and
the Corvette is quicker. Minor
problems I have experienced include
replacement of the steering wheel lock
motor and replacement of the passenger
side power window motor. There are
many available aftermarket performance
parts that are easy to install.
