2009 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 2dr Convertible (6.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

What a car. To find a different car that compares with the performance of this car would mean you would have to spend $150,000 dollars. The build quality is excellent. It is tight, no squeaks or rattles. It handles great. The acceleration is truly awesome, breath taking. This car is fun to drive. Styling turns head. Its very nice handling in town and a beast on the open road. My Vette has the NPP exhaust (dual-mode exhaust), Z51 Performance package, 6sp/man and 3LT pkg. Atomic Orange. The performance value of the Vette CANNOT be beat. It's a world class supercar. Hands down. And you will not have to spend world class price to own one. Lots of performance bang coupled with great styling. WOW


Favorite Features

Performance. Acceleration. Owning an American Icon which has been transformed into a world class supercar. It has excellent build quality. I've had my Vette going on 7 months. Happy to report NO problems. I smile every time I see it. Its a classic already. GREAT VALUE for an AMERICAN ICON!!


Suggested Improvements

More horsepower never hurts. Dual mode exhaust could be controlled by on/off button. Tweak navigation system graphics and ability to connect ipods. Design more convenient way to connect trickle charger to battery if not driving my Vette for several weeks at time (winter).

Review

Bought my Vette new in August '09. Drove it in '09 National Corvette Caravan to break-it-in. WONDERFUL experience. No problems with the Vette. Have had her almost five months now. Her acceleration is truly breath taking. Handling/maneuvering is remarkable. Styling turns heads. Vettes are unmistakable on the road when you see one. Waited most of my life to have one. Finally my dream comes true. These (C6 generation as well as C5's) are extremely well built. They are definitely keepers. I plan to keep mine and allow it to grow old right alongside me (now 49). Love my Vette. Its my pride and joy. Exhilaration does not adequately describe it.


Favorite Features

Stick shift (short throw-close ratio gearing). Convertible. Raw power. Sound system. Overall performance. Must spend well over 100,000 dollars to get a car that can compete with the 'All- American' Vette. Performance Value, allot of bang for the buck.


Suggested Improvements

turn-radius. If making u-turns, takes wide berth. This is due to design. Wheels are pushed out to corners. This does however lend for better, more nimble handling to compete with the 180,000 dollar porsche 911's.

2009 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 2dr Convertible (6.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I had a 2005 Coupe and had a lot of trouble with it, mostly electronic. I also was not impressed with the noise when driving. The 09 has taken care of all these issues. It rides better and so much quieter that I can hear the radio at highway speed.


Favorite Features

The dual mode exhaust.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe some splash guards to minimize rock chips.

Review

Took Museum delivery of 09 Atomic Orange convertible with 4LT, NPP, Z51, Auto, Nav system on 22 Sep. Drove back to So CA and it was the most confortable long distance ride of any car that I have owned. The 6 way power seats are extremely comfortable and exceeded my expectations. Handled like a dream on winding mountain roads. Could not believe the acceleration that this car has. Gas mileage better then expected, 26.6 MPG cross country and this included city, mountain and interstate driving during break in period. A great automobile.


Favorite Features

If I could pick a favorite feature, It would be a toss up between the 4LT interior package and the NPP dual mode exhaust. 4LT for appearance and NPP for awesome throaty sound.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the standard brake pads and go to ceramic pads. Way to much brake dust produced with the Z51 cross drilled brake rotors.
