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


Review

I can't imagine a more fun to drive car than this one - at least not for under $75,000 or so. Build quality could be better, but then it would probably cost a lot more. As it is, the car is still a solid car with only a few reliability problems. You are basically buying a street legal race car, that still gets surprisingly decent mileage (I get about 18 with MIXED driving, but only about 14 city.) The car LOOKS GREAT, ACCELERATES BETTER and HANDLES even better. It needs a better stereo and better build quality and it is perfect. One other note, the stock tires are horrible in the rain. Put some Michelin Pilot Sports on and the problem is fixed!


Favorite Features

Acceleration, looks, handling.


Suggested Improvements

Improve build quality, and stereo.

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


Review

My ZO6 is amazing. Other than low clearance of the ground effects and the ralatively lower end interior the car is a cream puff. Never have I owned a car with this type of performance or power. Being an owner of an earlier model viper and a couple of higher performing Cadi's, Beemer's, and Mercedes; the Corvette stands alone when comparing all features together. The six speed transmission adds enjoyment to the already scary power the vette supplies. My wife was skeptical before she had a chance to drive this now family favorite. Not to mention the asthetically pleasing exterior, my kids call it the spaceship. Overall, It's the best I've known.


Favorite Features

The six speed trans brings so much fun as you learn new ways to manuever through them(ask my wife). The speed/signal display on the winshield is a nice touch/safety measure. The additl. cargo space is appreciated. The commemorative touches/special rims are an icing on the cake!!!!


Suggested Improvements

I would improve the interior features to measure up to the Benz, Cadi, and BMWs. Suspension could be a bit better, however not if you lose any power or overall performance. T-tops going back to old school might entice some of the older Vette owners such as my father('77) on the ZO6.

Review

Driving the vette is exhileration bar none! Unless a person wants to spend a lot more money--there is no car on the planet that offers the comfort, technology, performance and value all in one awesome automobile! Whether wipping some wanna-be off the line or crusiing with your babe on a sunny day, the Vette has it all. A heads-up display, a Bose sound system, and gut wrentching performance all add up to the best car ever. Go ahead and spend double the money and still have less of a car. Go ahead and be stupid! No car even comes close for the dollar. See you in my rear view!


Favorite Features

Heads-Up Display, Bose Stereo, Removable roof, magnetic ride control, traction control and awesome gas milage.


Suggested Improvements

Nothing! What can I say?

Review

The most amazing thing about the Corvette is the gas mileage on the open road. My 99 got 32.7 mpg with an automatic trans and my 2003, Z06 gets 31 mpg. The only time gas mileage suffers is when your playing or when I drove this beast up Mount Washington in New Hampshire. It was first gear all the way up to 6000 ft. plus. Coming down the mountain was another story. Overall the value is there. Plenty of storage for luggage. If I had to say one bad thing about this car if would have to be the cup holder. It's useless!


Favorite Features

Power, handling, braking and did I mention Power.


Suggested Improvements

The C6 has addressed many of the little things the C5 needed.
