2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I have owned a Jag, Mercedes, Nissan & Lexus. The '05 Vette has by far the best sports car peformance & style. The C6 really is a beautiful machine inside and out.


Best Features

I like the looks exterior,headlights, comfortable seats, HUD, decent gas mileage 21city, 22.5-26.8hwy The large trunk is great for traveling.Interior quality I think is excellent. Of course the power is exillerating & cornering is like you are on rails I only wish '05s had offered the paddle shift 6s


Worst Features

The steering wheel needs to go up as well as in when exiting vehicle ie (Lexus)I pd.$1435 for a Borla exhaust w/ X pipe tour.ver.to JUST hear the exhaust!! Better gas mileage,better paint that resists chipping. ENGINE NEEDS V.V.TECHONOLGY. A switch to turn the DING OFF or down on the trip dash stuf

2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Since I purchased my Corvette coupe in August 2005 I have experince nothing but pure joy whenever I drive it. I get compliments on a regular basis. This car is not only powerful but its also extremely fun to drive. Believe it or not, I've even been asked by policeman how fast it goes. I always give them the politically correct response of "55 miles per hour". I would recommend this car to anyone!


Best Features

My favorite features are the engine, the Bose speaker system and the exterior design.


Worst Features

Integrated storage pouches behind each seat.

2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

What a sweet ride! Fast,comfortable, a head turner, even in Belleair Beach among all the Porsches and Mercedes sport coupes. The C6 lives up to all it's billing and then some. Great handling on long trips as well as around town.I have to drive it every day (maybe that's why I have almost 15000 miles on it since May '05). People come up to look at it everywhere I go. Even teenagers roll down their windows at stop lights to comment on what a beautiful car it is. I waited a long time for my first Corvette, but it was definitely worth the wait.


Best Features

I love the convenience of the push button convertible top. The push button start is much easier than fumbling in your pocket for keys. Best feature of all is the awesome power you feel when you really put your foot in it and hear that sound from the mufflers.


Worst Features

Maybe a little more room in the trunk,but hey, my golf clubs and shoes fit fine. I'll take this baby just like it is!

2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Not a bad car. A little overpriced. A Honda S2000 would be a better choice. Fit and finish are fair, nothing to brag about. Interior is sparse and void of luxury, in fact dated and disapointing. Bought the car to try to recapture my youth (had a couple of 60's versions). Effort failed.


Best Features

None, really. I'll stick with HDs for the open air.


Worst Features

Figure out a way to get in and out of the car without contorting the body.
