Fix the shifter, more comfort, nicer interior? Are you kidding? Fill it up, strap in, and smoke 'em! This is not a luxury touring car. It's a high speed, awesome sports machine. Serious speed and fun. There is no other car that delivers this kind of fun & performance for the money. If you want more junk to play with, go buy a Mercedes.
Looks, power, speed.
Chevy has done a super job. Personal opinion, the C6 was not a body improvement.
Bought new in 2004. Fun car to drive, very happy overall. Has been very sound mechanically. Only minor problems; blown front drivers door speaker, drivers side seat bolsters needed replacing, passenger side power window regulator needed replacing. All fixed under warranty. Biggest issue: GM doesn't fit their performance cars with adequate brakes. Prone to warpage, had same problem with 2002 WS-6 T/A. I have a set of Baer Brakes on order to fix the problem. Still, best perfomance car value out there! Can't wait to get a new Z06!
Performance, style, comfort, features. Run-flat tires!!! It's nice not having to stop to change a flat, especially in AZ in the summer! But, you definiely pay for it when you have to replace a tire!
Many were addressed in 2005 model. Cup holder that actually holds cups, second cup holder, bigger better brakes, hatchback auto-pulldown/latch.
I have been driving Corvettes for the last 15 years off and on. This 2004 Corvette has been the best. The 6 speed tranny is great on gas mileage. I am planning on trading in this car in two years and getting the 2008. I would highly recommend a Corvette to an person that is looking for a high performance car at a reasonable price.
2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)
Fun to drive, handles great. Never had any problems, mechanical or otherwise.It gets great gas mileage 28 MPG on the highway as long as you are cruising in 6th gear. What more can you ask for from a 405HP machine? It is what it is, a factory ready race car with a few amenities thrown in like A/C, a radio, CD player, power windows and locks. You drive it you're hooked!
Commemorative Edition paint scheme and color. Heads-up display.
XM radio, Better materials for the interior, better support from the seats in particular. Shorter throw shifter.
This Vette was purchased New on 4/04,It has been garaged since new & I can't wait to drive it! Handles & Hauls! Great sports car & fuel mileage car. Never driven in the foul weather such as rain / snow since we live in the N.E.,U.S.A. Highly recommended we have (2) in our stable.
Comfort, handling & performance with fuel economy! Color - All Vettes are "RED" the rest were mistakes!
