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


I live in South Florida and had a black 99 C5 which I traded for this silver coupe with paddle shift, onstar, heads up display navigation and the Z51 racing package. The car gets lots of looks and has great accelerating power. One of the reasons for trading my old C5 was the top which at times leaked during very strong thunderstorms but to my surprise driving my new 2006 vette on the Florida Turnpike at high speed my roof peeled off and I was very lucky the roof flew high and swerved right into a ditch without hurting any of the drivers behind me. It is a shame that in a 56k dollars automobile we find such a poor quality. I will trade this vehicle primarily for safety reasons.

Best Features

The touch screen radio is pretty good in combination with the heads up display

Worst Features

The top needs to be fixed, very dangerous! One incident like mine is one too many. Also the dash and the door panels need better quality materials. the door handles are rubber made and scratch easily if you wear a ring, hurting the car resale value.
