2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: 25,000-Mile Update
September 8, 2014
How much do we love our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray? Enough that we've put 25,000 miles on the Lime Rock Green C7 in less than one year.
Unlike many of our long-term cars, for which the new eventually wears off, enthusiasm for the Vette has barely cooled. It's one of those cars that, if the Corvette is still available when the car list gets to you, you're shocked. And you immediately grab it. At least I do, anyway.
The downside to racking up so much mileage is that our free services are over, since we've gone beyond 24,000 miles.
Despite our glowing praise, has the car been trouble-free? Not exactly. We've had a few issues, for instance with the touchscreen going on the fritz, and the front Corvette badge starting to peel off. There was also a mountain road overheating event that we've yet to fully understand.
Despite the new Corvette being less than perfect, it remains an absolute blast to drive. And really, that's what Corvettes are all about. The driving.
