Best Drive in 2005
By John Taylor on
2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
Iíve had the vette for a 720 mile
week. Itís awesome. Visibility is
better than my Acura RL and Lincoln Mk
VIII. 26.5 MPG on a trip. Expect
mileage to climb to 28-30 following
break-in. XM radio and Nav are top of
the line. Keyless push button start
takes getting used to but is a great
feature. Build quality/fit & finish is
superior,on par with any import.
Performs and handles like a true sports
car with out the usual drawbacks.
Seats are outstanding. Interior
ergonomics score an ďA+Ē. Even with
the perf. suspension (Z-51) it rides
comfortably. I coud not imagine a
better car. Weigh the performance,
drivability, & cost, the 2005 Corvette
is a hands-down winner in every
Seats are the most comfortable Iíve
ever had. Iím 56, 5í10Ē and 240 lbs.
Installed radar detector :-) I donít
feel comfortable having to remember to
put my manual in reverse when turning
the car off.
