2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I've had the car for about three months. At first I felt like I was driving a large sedan. After driving a Mercede SLK for 6 years the '06 Vette felt much bigger. Had to take a good look each time to remember it was a 2 seat sports car. Once I adjusted to the comfortable ride, I was able to grasp the power and the fantastic handling. Realy like the Vette and don't mis the Mercedes. I am not sorry in the least that I bought the car. Time will tell on reliability


Best Features

The paddle shift is great once you adjust to it. Much better than tiptronic shifting.


Worst Features

Get rid of the ashtray and cup holders. Had to replace the ashtray because it kept popping open. Rather annoying, plus I don't smoke. The parking brake should be on the driver's side. My passenger keeps hitting her arm on it.

2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet! I love my Victory Red '06 Z-51 Convertible. I wash it, dry it, and could stare at it for hours. I have owned an M3, SL500, CLK55 AMG, and this Vette is by far the best of them all. It really is an American dream. I will own this car forever.


Best Features

Paddle shift. The automatic transmission is a lot of fun to drive!


Worst Features

Better original equipment. Tires that last longer.

2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (7.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This car is one of the best beasts on the road. It rides like a Cadillac, but runs like a Ferrari. GMC -Chevrolet you guys have done a great job. The car runs, and runs. Handle great around the turns.


Best Features

The interior with navigation is the best option anyone would want. The car is advanced for just a muscle car.


Worst Features

GMC stop the mark up on msrp, and just price the car right.

2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I had a 2002 before purchasing the 2006. And while I liked the old one, there were a few little things that really annoyed me with it. The new one is really a great car! It has better quality interior, better ride/handling, nicer instrument panel, nicer closing doors, better fit and finish, less road noise, faster, the list goes on! Also, the new xenon headlights are great. I noticed the handling difference in the car (better) immediately leaving the dealer. I have the 6 spd manual. I took it on a 600 mile trip and got 31.4 MPG. I don't think there's another car made where you'll get this type of performance/mileage combination. I'm extremely happy with this one:)


Best Features

I really like the xenon headlights, they are really bright ( 80% brighter than the old ones) and they aren't in your way like the old flip up ones were. Also, I got the chromed wheels which are really sharp.


Worst Features

The shifting that occasionally forces you to go from 1st to 4th is somewhat annoying, but you can live with it.
