Selectable Economy for Your Power - 2016 Chevrolet Corvette
By Warren Mobley - March 28 - 8:03 am
Smoke the tires, lay 100 ft. of rubber, run at 160 MPH or just cruise at 80 MPH at 31.1 MPG. This is not your father's Sports Car !!! Traction control works and is advisable normally but if you want to GO switch to Track mode and turn off traction control. Just keep in mind there is nothing reasonable to repair on this car. A clear on ramp will leave you going 100 MPH which is way faster than the traffic you are merging into so brakes if used sparingly are needed. By the way the brakes work great just remember this is a base model so expect pushing it will heat the brakes causing fade and reduced life. Just limit your play time and this car will give good service for a long time. Power is power so 455 HP will go to 650 HP with just addition of a $5000 supercharger but there are reasons why there is a $30000 difference between base and Z06. Thirty percent is GM greed but the other 70% is all need. So don't just jack up the horsepower and think you beat the curve. Mine is Shark Grey Metallic, what a beautiful car !!!
Overall, The very best bang for the buck anywhere. - 2016 Chevrolet Corvette
By Reuben Wright - December 9 - 7:34 am
1. there is a $1,300 gas guzzler tax for the 8 sp automatic. 2.Fuel mileage for the 8sp auto is down right awful. The manual has no tax and mileage is way up compared to the automatic. 3. If you did not purchase the aero package then you are going to have road rash on the leading front edges of the rear fenders very expensive to repair. 2. Watch tire wear closely, tires have only 7/32 tread brand new and any alignment issues will present themselves within the first 2 or 3 thousand miles. In ref to my first review, at this point in time the least expensive way to go is with after market skirts. Bear in mind, this fix only applies to 2015 and 2016 Zo6's. The GOOD NEW's is the 2017 Zo6's and GrandSports all come with the side skirts. Still the best bang for the buck. Fuel mileage has picked up a tick to 22mpg. Better but with the cylinder deactivation feature I still think it should be more.
Lovin' My C7 Vette Z51 3LT Stingray Convertible - 2016 Chevrolet Corvette
By PK - December 3 - 6:38 pm
I ordered my first Corvette in 8/2016, took delivery of my 2016 C7 Z51 3LT Stingray convertible (white with tan top) in early 11/2016, and have put over 17K miles on it. I love driving this car, especially on "road trips." Maintenance is cheap, as everything is still under the initial (great) warranty, e.g., replacing the catalytic converter cost nothing. This car's ride, acceleration, braking, and feel are terrific. It hugs the road on curves and straight-aways like paint. I feel confident driving it. It's interior and tech are comparable to, if not better than, the Porsche-Boxter and Jaguar F-Type. The C7's perforated leather seats and dash are luxe. The instrumentation and head-up display are keen. The GPS could be better, with cheaper updates. Before buying my Vette, I shopped the three makes of sport-car convertibles I've listed AND also the BMW Z4, which, in my opinion, isn't on the same level as the Jag, Porsche, or Vette. The price included title, tags, and taxes. I've an 8-speed automatic and select-drive. In "Eco" drive, I get about 22-24 MPG (HWY). It is a thirsty bugger. I thought until the decision point I was getting the F-Type. I got the Stingray, AND I AM STILL ECSTATIC.

Lot's of fun - 2016 Chevrolet Corvette
By Robert Schell - March 3 - 1:42 pm
This is the first automatic sports car I have owned, and I've owned many! For work I am always in an automatic van or truck, whose shifting is less then smooth. I was totally impressed by the 8- speed automatic, and honestly don't miss the manual one bit. It shifts faster then I ever could and let's me focus more on the drive. I Now understand why so many sports cars are ditching their manual option. So I agree with others and try both. Otherwise an exceptional ride and turns heads everywhere.

My First Disappointmebnt - 2016 Chevrolet Corvette
By Jim H - July 30 - 8:05 pm
Most fun to drive of any car in my 71 years. Purchased this 2016 brand new. Comfort very surprisingly super. Performance terrific. Problems from day ONE STILL UNRESOLVED. Air conditioner/climate control wildly hot to only cool - never ever cold. Seat cooling works mildly just a few times in the two years we have had it. First year a horribly loud vibration when going up a hill. Selling dealer took it for joy rides and left the suspension at the hardest/racing setting. The cabin cooling and seat cooling still unresolved. Second dealer I went to is trying, but NO results. This car has been in dealers shops perhaps two dozen times for up to three weeks at a time. Gas mileage unbelievably wonderful. Long Beach Red - be prepared for people to follow you to a parking lot to look closer and compliment appearance. I've wanted a Corvette since I saw the very first one in 1953. We're driving the car off the selling dealers lot and Priince's "Give me a Red Corvette" comes on XM - Bridge. People follow us in the freeway in our blind spot just to look for miles then pass and wave. Take all of the remarkably wonderful things about this car that we love, put it against the horrid reliablility and amount of time it's been in the shop - is it worth it? Absolutely NOT. This is by far the most disappointing motor vehicle I've had Ever and I've had 13 brand new ones. For the first time in my life, I REGRET BUYING IT......................................... Be prepared for all the crap you will have to learn to tolerate if you buy one. Chevy complaints in the sky? All they did was to tell me to go to other dealers to see if they could fix it......... We have driven this vehicle with love and care and serviced as recommended................................................... Go buy a Mustang instead.

Greatest Corvette made since my 1967 427 L-88 - 2016 Chevrolet Corvette
By Keith - September 30 - 7:21 pm
This animal of a corvette is an unbelievable screaming machine on a track or a pussycat around town in Eco mode on 4 cylinders. After one year and 9,000 miles, this Corvette still amazes me! The power, smoothness, and dependability is still is remarkable. Great value for the money.
