2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I have gone through a lot of sports cars in the recent years, MB CLK500, BMW M3 (2x), Dodge Viper, BMW 330ci, BMW 645ci and then I came across the Corvette C6 and of all things it was in a BMW showroom. I instantly fell in love with the looks and lines of the car. Once you get behind the wheel and you feel and hear that mighty V8 roar to life, you know you are in something special. The car I have has the 6 speed auto with paddle feature and it is simply great. You can work the car as a manual but without having to step on a clutch which is great in traffic. The only caution is learn to drive the car it is fast...fast...fast. This is the best bang for the buck.


Best Features

Engine, trans and Z51 suspension, I have the 3LT package which has memory seats, heads up display and good privacy screen for the rear hatch.


Worst Features

My only complaint is the seats as they I am a muscular person and the seats are not wide enough and do not have enough thigh support.

2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is the nicest car I have ever owned. Prices are right and the performance is awsome. I have the 3LT and Z51 option plus NAV so the interior, in my opinion, is fantastic especially considering that this car is not your mother's luxury sedan. This car is about speed - hot, nasty, speed. After about 25 seconds at full throttle, your heart will be pounding in your chest, you'll be giggling like a maniac, and you'll be smiling so hard your face will actually hurt. My advice to you should you buy this car: respect the power always always always; get a really good radar detector. Check out the procharger supercharger. Yikes.


Best Features

400 hp and 400 ft/lbs at my command. 26 MPG at 65 mph. The NAV center. It's just cool whether you need it or not. The HUD. It too is just cool whether you need it or not. Heated seats. The rumble at ~1500 RPMs. The memory features


Worst Features

I wish the ZO6 body styling was available for the standard C6- specifically the wider fenders and the extra scoops. That would surely make the European sports car designers unhappy.

2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (7.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is not a car for everyone and it was not intended to be. This is a car for car enthusiasts who not only tolerate a firm ride and aggressive exhaust but demand it. I hear of buyers who want to quiet the car and make it more comfortable to drive. Give me a break. Why did you buy this car in the first place? After GM spent millions making the car lighter these buyers add sound deadening material. If your not used to driving high performance cars don't buy this car or be prepared to learn since traction can be difficult to come by even with traction control on. Also, you guys that have to ride around in plush leather living room furniture buy a Maserati.


Best Features

505 hp/470 ft. lbs of torque 3.7 secs. 0 to 60 mph 198 mph top speed Sub 12 sec. quarter mile 1.04g lateral-grip rating. 16/26 mpg Blows away Ferrari F430 at 1/3 the cost.


Worst Features

We need more of what its got: Louder exhaust. Stiffer suspension. More hp and ft. lbs.

2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Great quality and fun to drive. Had the car since we drove it off the lot into the 100 degree + days in Arizona. It has been thought a second summer as a daily driver in the dust and heat with no problems. Still has original run flat tires on at 24,000 miles. Paint has resisted scratching and chipping and it still looks new. All of the electronics work flawlessly (heads-up- display, navigation, bose sound, programable personal settings, etc). Great car!


Best Features

Power and comfort (I'm 6'2")when you need it and economical to drive on long road trips (30 mpg at 80 mph)


Worst Features

Interior trim

2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

We traded a 2002 coupe for a low mileage 2006. They are two different cars. The 2002 was fun and fast, but not as smooth as the 2006. The 2006 is blindingly fast and very comfortable on long rides. Two trips from FL to NY, and one trip to Bowling Green. Room for two carryon size bags, one ice chest and one tolietries bag. 28 MPG avg. 85mph=2000RPM. Lots of waves and thumbs up. Can't stop grinning


Best Features

Keyless ignition and entry, I never have to dig in my pocket.


Worst Features

Change sattelite radio to SIRIUS. Over- ride GPS lock if the passenger seat is occupied, eliminate the need for "Zones" to plan route.
