This is actually my second Corvette. I love the performance and the sleek lines of the exterior. The exterior, however, leave much to be desired. The hard plastic isn't so attractive. The roof also creaks and squeaks in the heat. That becomes annoying after driving on bumpy roads and long stretches. The C6 model also has a pretty badly-designed harmonic balancer. It's been a known design flaw for at least a few years now.
My favorite features are the heads up display and the Bose stereo.
Build a better and more sturdier interior. Also, design a better harmonic balancer.
I love my 2007 corvette I have the LT3 package, I have every option except the supercharger. I really don't need it, the power is great and controllable. No rattles, squeaks or leaks.
the only problem is the harmonic balancer. after the first time having it replaced two weeks later the harmonic came off in traffic doing 20mph. I shut it down and called tow truck and hauled it to the nearest dealer. the dealership had to do a total lower end replacement, it's been 6 weeks and on the 7th.
The best way to tell your harmonic balancer is going out leaving the engine running and if the HB is wobbling just a little bit it will come off. see some on that knows how to work on vets and familiar with HB. I have a great extended warranty and has paid every thing to date.
over 10,000 bucks. I would get a warranty this is a regular problem for vets 2005 to 2009, good luck
