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


Though I enjoy driving this car, it has its problems. There is the dead battery gremlin, almost every owner I have spoken to, or read in a Corvette forum site has complained about this. There is the turn signal/running lite burn out with less the 5000 miles on the car. There are messages from the DIC (driver Information Center) that make the car spend the night at the dealers so the proper reset codes can be gotten from GM. There are mechanical problems with that are more severe that other owners have complained about. GM has repaired my cars problems at no cost to me. In retrospect, I should have waited a year for these bugs to be worked out.

Best Features

Looks and performance.

Worst Features

GM should fix the issues that have plauged many owners of this new model instead of waiting for it to break. The battery issue is the most common.
