Great car for perfect roads only
By New Vette Owner on


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


I bought the Z51 package in order to
get the very "best" vette possible.
However, unless you plan to race this
car (on a race track) or live where
the roads are perfect, consider the
magnetic suspension. The Z51 is
simply too harsh for midwestern
roads. Buy the skip shift bypass from
one of the aftermarket sites - that
feature is annoying at best, dangerous
at worst. The car is tremendous fun
on the right roads, and is a real head-
turner, though it is a handful on
rough secondary roads. It is a super-
bargain, but there is a trade-off in
refinement. If you can afford it,
check out a Boxster S or M3 before you

Best Features

Tremendous thrust at any rpm, in any gear; keyless ignition and doors; head- up display; fit and finish worthy of European cars; excellent seats, driving position.

Worst Features

Offer the cross-drilled brakes as separate option. Delete the skip shift. Offer parking sensors and side mirrors than turn down in reverse - visability in back is very limited.
