We picked up our new Coupe at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY (R8C-option) and drove it 900 miles to Long Island. The car is absolutely fantastic....tremendous bang-for-the-buck. It gets 30+ mpg on the highway @ 70 mph...simply mind boggeling. Take the plunge....just do it....... you WILL NOT be disappointed

I grew up in a Ford family and idolized Mustangs. When my brother bought a C5 corvette I thought he was crazy. I borrowed the car for a weekend trip, went home and bought a C6 convertible 3LT. I love this car so much. It is a true sports car. I have had it for 2 years now and after 38,000 miles i have not had one single issue. How many $60,000 cars will do 0-60 in 4.3 seconds, get 27 mpg and haul $200 worth of groceries?I am just now ready to trash the runflats and mount some Hankooks.

Simply the Best

After almost 3 years of ownership - I still love this car. My family car is a BMW but the vette is simply the best car I have ever owned. It is beautiful to look at, still turns heads, runs like nothing else - yet the mileage is very good. No problems whatsoever, and I have driven thru horrendous rain storms and wind, it is solid, safe and rugged on the road. No rattles, no electrical glitches, the best built car I have ever owned. Get one, steal one, whatever - you have not lived until you open this up on an open road. Have only gone to 140 mph but, she has a lot more if you dare. If Bo Derek was a car - this is how she would feel............

2008 z06

by from elizabethtown,ky on November 7, 2011

Great car. Stellar performance, great driveability. Stock Goodyear tires are a little noisy, but tolerable. Good gas mileage for the performance.

Best Performance Car For The Money

You would need to spend several, if not tens, of thousands of dollars more for a comparable car of German or Italian manufacture, for what you will get with the Corvette. Simply put, this car is a beast. I drove the Porsche Cayman and it pales in comparison to the Corvette. The Corvette is much quicker off the line, even with the auto trans. I bought the coupe version. This car is so sexy. It gets looks and approving nods everywhere I go. This year is lacking in an MP3 input, which is a bummer, but certainly not a deal-breaker. I will drive this one for about two more years and then buy the most current version of the Corvette at that time. Considering what you get in terms of styling and performance for between $50k to $55k brand new, or a little older version like mine for $35k, you just can't find a better value. Drive one and you will be sold!

One of the best cars Ive ever owned. Im normally am import guy but my 08 vette was my first american sports car. To get something comparable in the import sports car lineup usually costs double or even more! love my vette! The sexy body style makes the car but the updated interior features sure help too!

At 70-75 I get a constant 27-28 mpg, and on the freeway it runs fine on regular, no pings. Handles great, ample horse power, topped it out once at 174 mph, Installed Dyna Mat and it's real quiet, I do wish the Navigation weren't DVD driven, I have 132,000 miles on it, replaced the shocks, tires, brake pads and a serpentine belt, spark plugs and battery, that's it, not even a blown light bulb, nothing else save for oil and filter changes, nothing. This car has never failed me and I've driven through the desert in summer several times, runs cool and the A/C gets cold enough to hang meat if you want to. Only non stock items, changed out the stock gear shift knob and cat back exhaust. I have lots of friends who drive much more expensive cars, none have had as trouble free ownership as I have. Car is now paid off and it still runs/looks great what more can you ask for?
