At last, GM got one right

Vehicle2007 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
ReviewUpdated All American look returns. Light years better in most depts. than C4-C5's. Well balanced design, performance and handling. If they'd only cure RF tire noise on concrete freeways. Retains a hint of earlier crude front suspension feedback on rough streets. Needs a hair more suspension travel. Good interior styling and (almost) quality look. GM had to include a cheesy painted plastic panel on forward console and climate/radio controls. Ltd leg room for over 6' 2" drivers, needs 3 more inches there. 6 spd auto allows broad power choice, just keep revs over 2K. After 6K mi. I've noticed occasional clunks shifting into R and occ sloppy/slow shifting in D or S. Must be the DBW.
Best FeaturesClassy low slung stance. Get the chrome wheels. Gobs of easily managed power the instant it's desired. Coupe does it all well for a daily driver. Wind buffeting noise is excessive over 50 mph with top off, even with windows up.
Worst FeaturesUpgrade the console materials! Make steering wheel spokes/air bag cover classier looking. Offer Home Link and Digital FM a la carte...the 3LS pkg is a rip off, espec. Magnetic ride.
