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


This is my second Vette (93) and the
2003 Zo6 shows improvement in power,
road ability while keeping the Corvette
historical looks and feel. The Zo6
seats are very comfortable and offer
lots of support--better than the C4
seats. Have had no warranty issues with
the car and everything works! The CAGS,
which is a major safety issue, should
have a defeat switch but most get an
after-market by-pass. The Zo6 has the
trunk feature that surpasses the glass
hatch that now has body panels attached
to it. The heads-up display is a cute
feature but useless on rougher roads as
it gives you a major headache when you
try to focus on them.

Best Features

Love the exterior shape, and with the two tone Mod Red interior--the Vette is a looker! The exhaust note is right-on. Love the Zo6/405HP labels on the fenders (annoys Mustangs). Lots of after-market suppliers, so get out the checkbook for exterior and engine mods.

Worst Features

Need a better shifter, one with less travel. Should offer chrome wheels as standard. How about the CD changer option with satellite radio. Need forward tweeters for better surround sound. And tire pressure option as an OEM feature! Also need driving lamps to flash left land parkers.
