2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
This is my third generation Corvette. The styling is absolutely gorgeous. (I also liked the sytling on my 1999 Vette.) Thought about buying the Mercedes 500 SL convertible. My car was parked next to it and I thought the Corvette was so much better looking. The manual top on my last car (the '99) was much easier to use. The guys at the dealership talked me into the manual top, and I find it hard to latch. I also think the heads up display is a waste of money. I feel that feature should be eliminated the make the power top standard. As even inexpensive convertibles all have power tops. Other than that, the Corvette gives you the most bang for the buck.
Like just about everything about the car except for the manual top and heads up display.
The top should be power. The the new latch is difficult to use. I find the heads up display distracting and do not use it
