2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This car is a heartpounding thrill ride from neckbreaking start to right now stopI I own several sports cars; absolutely none better performing for the money. The Z06 Corvette would be a bargain @ $70,000.00 and sells for much less. interior appointments are not as "leathery" as I would like but the Z06 makes this up in performance. I would classify this Vette as pound for pound the best and cheapest performance car in the world.If you would like to compare this car to another expect to pay 80 to 150 k to get equivalent performance!


Best Features

The gas pedal!


Worst Features

More leather-- shorter shift throw.

2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

WOW! What a car! I moved up from a
Grand Prix GTX and have been MIGHTILY
impressed with this "race" car!
Incredible speed that still scares me
at times, VERY comfortable - even on
an 800 mile trip back and forth from
Tallahassee to Indiana - and a real
joy to drive, even in daily traffic.
I wouldn't recommend the 6 speed for
those who have to sit in highway
traffic for hours at a time (Atlanta)
but it is perfect for my daily 15
minute drive back and forth to work.
I STILL get comments on the Zo6 even a
year and a half after purchase! It's
amazing how much more peeps will pay
attention to you when you drive a
corvette! Go for it, you only live
once!


Best Features

The 405HP is incredible... 0-60 in 4 seconds and performance that is untouchable in this price range. The seats are comfortable, even for my 6' 3" frame and I love the Heads-up display, a great add-on to keep your eyes on the road. I also LOVE the pop- up headlights!


Worst Features

The only improvements I would make would be in the radio/speaker department. I'm not a fan of the bose system and have added two 10" subs in the rear compartment to really give the bose system more uumpff. I also added a Kenwood music keg so I can play thousands of mp3's.

Review

I am extremely fortunate in that my
first Corvette was a new Z06. The car
has met and exceeded ALL my
expectations in overall performance and
driving enjoyment, but you must be
prepared to drive, and pay attention to
your driving at all times. This is not
a vehicle to drive while talking on the
cell phone, putting makeup on, or,
heaven forbid, reading while cruising
in the right lane. Buy this car if you
love to drive.


Best Features

Acceleration, handling, bang for the buck, and the Electron Blue color. EVERYONE loves it...


Worst Features

Road and tire noise control (corrected in the C6, and I fixed mine w/ some Dynamat). Also, the shifter throw and feel (again, fixed myself w/ Hurst aftermarket product).

Review

I have owned this car for over 1 year
and 10,000 miles. This is my 2nd
Corvette and 8th Sports Car. There is
very little on the road that can keep
up with the Z06.. stock vs. stock.
The newer vipers and porsche turbos
are it... under $100K. Mine is a
daily driver, and is very comfortable
even during rush hour. Absolutely no
problems with the car... and I have
not babied it. This is simply one
very awesome, affordable, easy to
drive rocket.


Best Features

Other than smashing the go pedal, the electronics package of the HUD, Traction Control, Active Handling and the Driver Information Center are fun toys to pass the time.


Worst Features

How do you improve perfection??

Review

I bought this car during the 0% craze
last year (was building a 600hp+
Mustang) but ditched that project after
10 minutes of seat time in the Z06.
Hands down the most enjoyable ride I've
ever taken. The black one I tried
driving off the lot with crapped on me
before out of dealer's sight, but the
Quicksilver has held up very well and
the only problem is some infamous GM
paint (runs by the lower door panels),
a creak here and there in the interior,
and a fuel sensor gauge (fixed once,
living with it now) that likes to die
out.

Overall performance and looks the car
gets a 10/10, and I'd score it higher
but might be a bit trite. Everyone
deserves a Z06.


Best Features

Handling. Like a 3,000lb GM go-kart for the road. Power, but you always end up getting used to it and wanting more.


Worst Features

More power. But not sure I like the new body style enough to dump the '03 based solely on power, though. A little better quality control would be appreciated. Still, all said, would buy another (as in 2 for more colors!)if I could afford it.
