Used 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe Consumer Reviews
This is my 1st Corvette. I'm impressed with the car - better than any of the competition at a much cheaper price. Didn't realize the car would have such a cool factor. Good gas mileage, comfortable and rides reasonably well. If you order a Corvette one can go to the plant in Kentucky and watch your car assembled - I did and it was well worth the price. A once in a lifetime experience! The factory workers were nice and committed to building a quality car - more than one told me they wanted the car to be perfect for me. I'd do it all over again. The dual mode exhaust is a must have option - I upgraded mine with a aftermarket remote to open/close the valves at will. Very cool! Love my vette!
Second C-6. Love the vehicle. The interior could use a face lift for a $60k car bt everything else is great. Someone asked about the dual mode exhaust. Either pull the fuse or buy a $60 gadget called "mild to wild". Replaces the fuse and allows you to open or close the damper from the homelink button.
Took museum delivery of GS coupe which I would recommend. Driving back from Kentucky, I averaged 31 mpg while my wife said "it felt like a luxury car compared to my older vette". I now have it for 4 months and can say this car is impressive on all fronts. Acceleration is silly fast, cornering is flat and predictable while braking is spot-on. The interior is unbelievably roomy. the trunk space is similar to a town car. I find the seats comfortable and supportive. I like the interior too which is not as nice as a 911, but it's 20k less. Drove them both back to back thinking I was buying the 911 but the grand sport is a better car, period!
Had been wanting a Vette for years but was always concerned about quality. Test drove a Cayman but options took it over 70K. Recent reviews about GM getting serious about quality, the GS option and 0% drew me in. Great power, good clutch/trans relationship, clutch is not as heavy as I expected. The seats are as bad as all magazines state, brake dust is also an issue but the car is so much fun, it doesn't matter. I grin every time I start it. Chevy has done a very good job. quality is first rate, no rattles and not one problem. Decent sound system but not great. Just finished a road trip (1000 mi) great highway mileage. After many overseas performance cars, it feels good to buy American.
This was my fifth Corvette and the most reliable, pleasureful, and easiest car to drive of all of them. Early Corvettes were fun to drive, but not nearly reliable enough to drive daily. This one is. I drove it to work every day, and even on long trips. I drove it to the east coast and back and on the trip out of the West Virginia mountains got 30 mpg. I didn't drive it in heavy snows, but an inch or two was cautious but doable. It has much better driver's vision that my wife's new LaCrosse. The only complaint I had was about camber wear on the front tires because of high speed highway driving and downforce, but new tires and a quarter degree positive camber tweak stopped that. This is a Corvette that anybody will enjoy to drive. I sold the 2010 Corvette to a very lucky buyer and purchased a new 2019 Grand Sport. The GS is fun to drive, but because it was built for the track, it is not nearly as enjoyable as the 2010. The 2010 is roomier inside, and doesn't have those terrible side rocker spoilers that gouge you in the back of the legs getting in and out. I miss the C6. The buyer of my 2010 contacted me and is elated with the car. The C6 has become very popular, and there are many to choose from. Corvette prices have exploded, so get yours quick.
