2010 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (7.0L 8cyl 6M)
First GM vehicle in over 30 years and I am pleasantly surprised with the great quality , fit and finish - perfect paint and zero squeaks and rattles. Has been to dealer for a wheel balance but nothing else. Performance from the big V8 is wonderful - terrific low-end torque coupled with ferocious acceleration - gas mileage is 18-19mpg city and 26mpg highway. Brakes , handling , and shifter are quite nice - even better than a 911. Did not consider Porsche due to many past problems and very high service and maintenance expenses. Overall I am very pleased with my Z06.
427 CI V8 , handling , brakes , and shifter. Stereo is very good - for a sports car. XM sat is terrific.
1. Suspension is too hard- except on the smoothest surfaces. 2. Center console gets so hot you could almost cook lunch in it.Needs to be better insulated. 3. Padding in seats is too soft and so is the lumbar support. 4. Front spoiler drags on anything thicker than a credit card!
