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


I've been a Corvette fan for years. I bought my first convertible in 2002. The C5 was a great car, but with issues. GM has done a fantastic job cleaning up the issues: fit and finish, interior design and quality, technology are all vastly improved. I was concerned about the decision to shortten the car by 5 inches and narrow it by 1 inche, but it was the right decision. Car car "feels" beeter now as a result. The exeterior design was also vastly improved: the car looks great. I think it's the best value for a performance sports car, literally, in the world.

Best Features

New body style, improved fit and finish, interior design and quality are right on target, and, of course, the automatic top.

Worst Features

Two items: the 6 speed manual still feels a little crunchy, although not as much as the C5 and there doesn't seem to be a way to turn off the vent fan, so, you always have air blowing on you - like it or not.
