Breathtaking Automobile by Tomorrow Joe 999 on 06/23/2010. Trim: 2010 Chevrolet Corvette GS Convertible 3LT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Just an awesome car. Compliments all the time. Performance is staggering, great brakes, incredible handling (very forgiving), style that is off-the-charts, American icon, fantastic value for the money, you can drive it in jeans or be wearing a suit and tie, any dress style will fit, no problem as a daily driver, weight to horsepower ratio is ranked as excellent, reliability is very good, quality is excellent, your friendship circle will increase once you start to meet other Corvette owners, truly a world class car.
Cons: Minor - Since the car is very low, be careful when parking, also watch for certain driveway inclines, you will scuff the front air diffuser. Since it is a low sports car, you will have to learn how to artfully enter and exit a Corvette. "Bing" the topic and you will find it and learn.
Overall review: Has to be one of the best cars I have owned. I am glad I made the decision to by a Corvette. I was looking at, and test drove, BMW M5, Porsche GT3, and Dodge Challenger SRT8. All of those cars are great cars also, but the Corvette just seem to fit me. I chose the Grand Sport for it's body styling and its Z06 flavor. I love the HUD (Head's Up Display). Great engine and exhaust note. Either base coupe, GS, Z06, or ultra-mega ZR1, you cannot go wrong with any Corvette. This is my second, I had one many years ago, and the quality was not near what the Corvette is now. I am stunned as to how well/tight this car is and the quality is amazing. Just sitting still it looks like it is traveling at 98 MPH. If you do not like taut cars, then steer clear and by a Buick or a Lexus. If you buy one --- ENJOY THE RIDE!!!

A little less of a sports car by shelbyfan on 07/19/2010. Trim: 2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 3ZR, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It sure is a nice car to look at and it is an icon, not as much as the mustang though. I like the colors it comes in especially that performance red. Very fast, i can say that.
Cons: First of all, the price tag is one of the many mistakes GM has made with its performance cars. (Or lack of performance). Over $100,000 for this? It's a cheaply made sports car not some. Secondly, when i look at Corvettes, i think that im surrounded by a band. Good looking somewhat to a degree, cheap, and they make a nice noise, but behind the scenes, theyr almost completely talentless and weak. It's extremely wide and there is a such things as too loud, especially from the tires. It's not safe either. The fact that when you try its performance out in handling, it will bite your arm off and the fact its plastic doesnt help driver confidence.
Overall review: A fine car to take on the track if you want a thrill but you wouldnt want to take it on the road.

Best automobile in the world for the money. by Michael in Texas on 06/30/2011. Trim: 2010 Chevrolet Corvette GS Coupe 4LT, Owned 1 year.
Pros: This car is one of the most explosive cars I've ever owned which includes many foreign high end models. It makes you feel lucky to be alive. It turns more heads than any other car and it's got to be one of the most beautiful designs ever made.
Cons: All though the interior is adequate, it could be a little more tripped out so to speak. For the price it is pretty Chevrolet. If they put a Cadillac interior in this car it would be the ticket. But, most buy these cars for performance and the seats have to be driving seats not soft. The interior is still ok but could improve.
Overall review: Awesome production vehicle. Simply put, one of the finest automobiles in the world. The price is affordable as well.

Corvette from a Long Time Vette Owner / Racer / Instructor by Ken from Georgia on 02/26/2011. Trim: 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 3LZ, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I'm a long term Vette owner & have raced cars & taught high performance driving. There is nothing in the world like a Corvette! There are some other great cars out there, but once you discover "Corvette", nothing else will do what it will. World class handling, acceleration, V8 rumble, perfect weight distribution, lighter weight than anything in it's class, world class styling, the BEST clubs, museum, owner society anywhere. After market support is phenomenal! Get into the Corvette lifestyle and you will make friends for life! The C6th generation just kicks the C5 up to a new level! There is NOTHING like the C6 Z06 with GIANT 427 hand made engine! Buy one! You only live once!
Cons: Chevy keeps getting better and better with their Corvette engineering. I'm a really particular driver with racing training and background. There's really only 2 areas Chevy needs to improve on the C6...Better seats - use Recaro / Sparco / Momo or something that is superior to the type they typically use. Deeper bolsters, true track formed seats are the ticket. Second: Do the same thing with the steering wheels on Vettes. Honestly, it's the greatest disappointment to see a Chevy Cobalt look-a-like on such a world class car! Again, go to Momo or Nardi or someone who makes GREAT steering wheels. These are driver interface areas. Makes a world of difference to have the best seat / wheel!
Overall review: The Chevrolet Corvette is easily one of the top 5 cars in the world! It will out handle, out accelerate, out brake, out last, get better fuel economy MOST other cars - including plenty of models from the BMW / Porsche / Ferrari marques. The Ford Mustang isn't a genuine sports car (2 seats), and the Camaro handles it anyway. The Dodge Viper is a hit & miss proposition that has one of the most disappointing exhaust notes (flat sounding V10) on the track. Reliability and longevity along with fuel economy are areas that Corvette beats Viper hands down. And when has Viper won the world championship in the American LeMans series? Oh, that's right...NEVER! While Corvette has won multiple years in a row! And the similarity of the C6R and the Corvette is spectacular and impressive...they truly better the road car with the track car innovations in the Corvette world. Buy one! You will not regret it...there's NOTHING like a Chevrolet Corvette made in Bowling Green, KY USA!

2010 Corvette Grand Sport 3LT by Alan on 07/17/2010. Trim: 2010 Chevrolet Corvette GS Coupe 3LT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This is my 3rd Corvette, traded a 2008 base vette in on the 2010 GS 3LT. This car is amazing, I was in love with it as soon as I saw the first one. Great looks, styling and performance. The interior is amazing contrary to what others say. The optional Nav system is the best. The wide body styling gets lots of looks and comments.
Cons: I haven't found a thing I don't like
Overall review: One great driving machine, the Ultimate American Sports Car
