Review

This 2004 Z06 is my first Vette and I am blown away by it. Solid as a rock. Motor on steroids. Exhaust note to die for. Great mileage. Best curvy body since Catherine Zeta Jones. I own a Mercedes S 55 that seems as exciting as a bowl of cottage cheese compared to a drive in the Z06. Keep the walnut and air conditioned glove box. This American Guy will take styling, brute force, and the extra $60K in the bank. What took me so long?


Favorite Features

Great build quality. A motor that is SWEET without superchargers, turbos or other gizmos. Pure small block Chevy. If the acceleration and exhaust note doesn't make your heart race, see a cardiologist immediately


Suggested Improvements

One decent cupholder. Better seats. Navigation.

Review

This car is so much fun to drive it should charge you to drive it. Blinding acceleration along with glued to the pavement performance are features this car flaunts.


Favorite Features

Agility of the car and its quickness


Suggested Improvements

Better designed headlights for better night time driving

Review

Just over 3k miles and my passenger window is stuck. This is pretty pathetic for any car, even more so for $50k or GM's "flagship". I called GM, they used two great excuses: the car is man made and its supplier error. First, you hired those people and pay them $20+ more an hour than Honda or Toyota of America. Second, you qualified those suppliers!!!

Suggested Improvements

Qualify better supplier and/or screen your employees more, you're paying your workers more than you competitors, try to at least get the same workmanship out of them.

Review

This is my second Vette (93) and the 2003 Zo6 shows improvement in power, road ability while keeping the Corvette historical looks and feel. The Zo6 seats are very comfortable and offer lots of support--better than the C4 seats. Have had no warranty issues with the car and everything works! The CAGS, which is a major safety issue, should have a defeat switch but most get an after-market by-pass. The Zo6 has the trunk feature that surpasses the glass hatch that now has body panels attached to it. The heads-up display is a cute feature but useless on rougher roads as it gives you a major headache when you try to focus on them.


Favorite Features

Love the exterior shape, and with the two tone Mod Red interior--the Vette is a looker! The exhaust note is right-on. Love the Zo6/405HP labels on the fenders (annoys Mustangs). Lots of after-market suppliers, so get out the checkbook for exterior and engine mods.


Suggested Improvements

Need a better shifter, one with less travel. Should offer chrome wheels as standard. How about the CD changer option with satellite radio. Need forward tweeters for better surround sound. And tire pressure option as an OEM feature! Also need driving lamps to flash left land parkers.
