Review of the 2004 Chevrolet Corvette

  • An excellent car that never ceases to amaze us. Cheap interior trimmings aside, the current-generation Corvette is the best thing GM has going for it.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Ultrahigh performance, daily-driver livability, bargain sticker price.

  • Cons

    Some low-grade interior trim, can't get the Z06 as a coupe or convertible.

  • What's New for 2004

    To celebrate the last year of the C5, Chevrolet is offering a Commemorative Edition package on all models, including the Z06. In addition to special Le Mans Blue exterior paint and a Shale interior, Commemorative Edition 'Vettes will have special badging and polished aluminum wheels.

May 2014 road & track

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)

This is my 8th corvette and it is the best performing and handling corvette that I have ever had. Hopefully in the near future I will purchase my 9th corvette.




Amazing machine

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)

I recently purchased a silver 2004 Z06 with 25,900 miles. The car is stock. I am amazed by the performance value of this car. The engine is incredibly flexible. The sound of the motor at 6,000 RPMs is amazing, and the car pulls like a locomotive. I am also amazed at the relative comfort of the car - the seats are very comfortable (I am over 6 feet tall) and the ride quality, though firm, is wonderful. I am surprised at how docile the car is in 'adult driving' mode - driven maturely around town, the car is eminently livable. For an enthisiast, this is a comfortable daily driver. I am amazed at the performance value with the Z06 as compared with other high-performance cars.




Corvette #5 for me

The Corvette Z06 is a remarkable car. It's fast, beautiful, handles and stops like very few cars can. These cars are priced well and fairly inexpensive to own. Mine gets 30 MPG on the highway and routine maint. can be done by most owners/enthusiasts due to its simplicity.

Speed limits are only numbers.

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)

My review title is a little misleading. For the most part, I do respect the speed limits (sort of). I bought my Z06 new and absolutely love it. It's a pain to keep clean since it's black, but I wouldn't have any other color. The car is really fast and if I keep it in 6th on the freeway I can maintain 28 MPG. I knew when I bought my Vette that there wasn't much leather on the interior. So those of you out there shouldn't complain after the fact. this is an amazing car. Did I mention that it's fast?




Half way there

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)

Sharp car in design, but not in comfort. Very noisy inside, interior materails do not hold up to use. Driver leather replaced twice. Tire wear abysmal, replaced all at 30k. I'm not a hot rodder. This is my 8th Corvette. Great gas mileage. Year round driver, not too bad in snow.




My 4th vette

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)

Best Corvette I have owned yet. This is my 4th vette and my first new purchase. The car performs better than many other muscle cars I've owned. Acceleration and braking are superior. None of the rattles and electrical problems I had with my '72, '93 or '96. Amazing gas mileage (28 MPG)on road trips with an average speed of 75 mph. I plan to keep this car forever.
