Dream car - tempered by reliability
By Bob on


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


Buying a new 2005 Corvette was a long awaited "dream" event for me. My initial excitement at owning and driving a car that not only looks great and drives great has been severely tempered by the fact that the car has suffered repeated reliability problems (mostly on the same issue) that have left the car in the shop for over 30 days in the first 1700 miles of ownership. Hopefully this will be resolved and I can actually start to enjoy my new vehicle for the reasons that I bought it for: looks and driving excitement!

Best Features

Car looks absolutley fantastic. Designers nailed both the interior and exterior!. Interior is much improved over previous models

Worst Features

Reliability - I dont expect Japanese like relaibility but I expect more from a $50,000 plus car based on my intial 1700 miles of ownership. Chevy must get this right!
