You think this is bad. I have a 2005 with 11,000 miles. In April of this year it stalled electronically while driving on a highway not a freeway. All power shut down, no flashers nothing and I couldn't get out of the car. The lift up latch release failed. Fortunately it was in the daylight. I don't even know if the brake lights showed or not. Since then I have filed ... Read More
A few years ago I really wanted to get a classic car like a 1957 Chev.,1967 Pontiac, GTO, a 1950 Ford with a Chevy 350, etc. the only problem with that desire was it really wouldn't be a daily driver like it was when it was new because most people wouldn't drive a car like that every day because of the possibility of having it damaged or in a lot of ...

First, you are in the C6, 2005 and up, area. You need to go to the C3 section for your 1968. Must be me but I can't find a C3 section under Chevrolet Corvette. I could find the C6 topic but that is different from this one. Have you mistaken a Corvette forum with Edmunds?
Where do I start? I took my 2005 C-6 six speed in for an upgrade to the OnStar system. Almost a month later, as the car sits on the rack at the dealer, I have no 5th gear in the transmission. I was having a problem with the airbag light and had OnStar run a check on the car while on my way to the dealer. They came back with no ... Read More
Greetings: Opinions are like....... oh ya, ...in my humble opinion: I spent $99,949.85 out the door (cash sale, I am truely fortunate! )in Oct 2005 on my ordered 2006 C2S coupe. The VAST majority of Porsche owners never will experience the true potential of their cars, the VAST majority of Vet owners are likely in the same boat. I checked out the 2006 Corvettes and did not like the quality or ... Read More
What to believe? I'm looking right at a Motor Trend compasion test of the 2005 Corvette Z51 and the 911S coupe. It shows the 355 hp 911S beating or matching the 400 hp Corvette in every measured performance category: 0-60: 4.2 vs. 4.4 seconds 1/4 mile: 12.6 each 60-0 Braking: 106 vs. 113 feet 100-0 braking: 299 vs. 321 feet 600 ft slalom: 70.1 vs. 68.9 mph 200 ft skidpad: 0.97 ...

I don't know if this has been brought up here, coming in so late to the topic, but there is a major discrepency about the shift quality of the manual transmission. In "First Drive: 2005 Chevrolet Corvette", Edmunds said: "The standard six-speed manual, however, is the big shocker here. The clutch is smoother and lighter, and the shift feel is — dare we say — "Miata-like" in its snick-snick shift quality. ... Read More
btw., why is there such a wide range of 0-60 times for the C6? Maybe that's true for all cars out there and I'm just more aware of it with the Corvette. But I've seen 0-60 times listed between 4.1 and 5.1 secs. That's an outraggeous difference. 25% swing! And that 1 second is the difference between a really fast car and an exoctically fast car. 5.1 is marginally better than ... Read More
Correct, we know when the models were introduced, the C6, the Z51 package and now the Z06. I am interested in a Z06. Maybe you did not read my original post. The C6 was new in 2005, reduction in problems in 2006 and 2007 should be better. The mechanic stated he would wait on the Z06, a year or two. The story from the Elco corvette mechanic seemed to be verified ... Read More
Buy what you like, don't let one guys posting get your shorts all bound up there junior. Don't be ashamed you got an automatic, enjoy it. No need to be so defensive. I have many automatics in my lifetime, just not in a sportscar. I think you will find many end performance cars without auto transmission though. Plus, you left out the St. Louis Corvette statistics for auto/manual? Poor data analysis. ... Read More
If it is a base car with no options then the starting price is what you can find heavily optioned C6s for on E Bay and some of the Corvette Forums. BTW, MSRP for a 06 6-speed with no other options is $44,490; you should be able to negotiate the price down from there. The asking price is a high ball price so offer them a low ball prices if you ... Read More
Jmess: I am sorry to hear about the problem you posted yesterday regarding your Z06. I hope things work out for the better -- or even the BEST. I know how you feel, as I have been GM's guinea pig (sp?) for the original C5 in 1997. I was among the first to find two of their eventual recall items. Here's why I am writing. I've been reviewing a bunch of ... Read More
I'm in the market for an '06 Coupe with automatic trans and I am considering whether or not to get the Z51 performance package. I don't plan to race or do autocross (could change) and I don't want to have a harsh ride for my everyday driving. Can someone tell me what this package does to everyday handling? How does this affect the Active Handling feature and how much does it ... Read More
The new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has been named an "All-Star" by Automobile Magazine. The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) introduced a brand new award for a "truly exceptional vehicle that sets new standards". The inaugural AJAC 'Most Coveted Vehicle Award' went to the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The Chevrolet Corvette C6 was named Car & Driver's "10Best Cars: Best Performance Car" for 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and I might ... Read More
On Saturday I test drove a new 2005 911 S Cab (997) with my wife and kids in the rear seat. I was told the RMS problem was overblown and that, with proper break in, had not been a problem in 996's and Boxters. In fact, there was an absolutely pristine 2000 Boxster on the lot that had been recently traded on a 911. It had 155,000 miles on the odometer ... Read More
According to the chevylaunch website which is accessible for dealers only. They said that Bowling Green is capable of producing 33,000-34,0000 Corvettes per year. They are estimating 15-20% will be Z06. Supplies will be tight. Dealer a :) llocation is based on 2005 years sales. Chevy stated that there will be some certified Corvette dealers who won't get a single Z06. The difference between the 2001 and the 2006 is the ... Read More
I am considering a 2005 C6 and I would like to know whether anyone can recommend a Washington, D.C.-area dealer. It seems as if very few Chevrolet dealers sell Corvettes. Thanks.
We are talking about the 2005 C-6 Vet under the heading 2005 Chevrolet Corvette! It should includes GM Pricing and current selling policies.
Employee and supplier sales deals!!!!!! In the right-hand upper corner of the MSRP sticker is two codes, one for employees one for suppliers. The lower price is for employees, usually $1000.00 or more under dealer cost.

GM does not offer incentives like you are mentioning for the corvette(2005). I get the "A" plan and did not qualify. If you shop around you can get $2,000-3,000 of MSRP. Kerbeck in Atlantic city will give 2500 off, and I bought my at Maxie Price Chevrolet (Loganville) outside of Atlanta last week for 2k off MSRP and drove home to Florida.
But what did GM expect delivering an auto? However, the tester really didn't get the HUD and that's too bad, that is the one thing I now miss most whenever having to drive something else. Oh well, http://www.edmunds.com/new/2005/chevrolet/corvette/100375991/road- - testarticle.html?articleId=103666&tid=edmunds.h..wkedmunds.ro- - adtests.1g.*
The following is from an article USA Today, which has much more info on other GM models, Ford and DC. FWIW: GM also is offering no-interest financing on many 2004 models for loans as long as five years. "I sold 52 Corvettes last month," said Scott Montgomery, sales manager at Les Stanford Chevrolet in Dearborn. "Zero for 60 should clean out the last of them." GM customers with leases that don't ...

the Corvette is great & the best possibly. At GM.com I watched the webcast, and saw the vehicle at all angles, for once instead of the once at a time. I loved the background music that Chevrolet put on during the show. It was cool & RETRO. If Chevrolet wants it to sell, the cars have to be sleek, sexy, and full of cool gadgets. For example, the C5 represented the ... Read More
As a previous owner of two Corvettes the 2005 C6 is the first Vette that has sparked my interest in a long time. The styling reminds me of the 360 Modena in the headlights and the Viper in the front fenders while still maintaining the Vette persona. Of course I would never, never, never buy a first year GM car and did I say never? Maybe I will consider a 2006 ... Read More
We have already found out the 2004 Cadillac XLR will have the 2005 Chevrolet Corvette's bodyframe, which obviously means that hints a shape for the next-gen Vette. Will that mean that it will have kind of the same shape, or the same type of alluminum? What are your ideas? Right now; I'm clueless.
Sometime last year, I was sitting on my computer looking at my car magazine while online at Edmunds, and looked at a spy picture of the 2005 Chevrolet Corvette. Then I looked at a picture of the 'concept' 2004-2005 Ford Mustang. I thought not, but many people were convinced to buy one when they went to the New York Auto Show. I'm afraid that Chevrolet is losing there grip. Ford's new ... Read More
