from Century Chevrolet
Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Corvette Conv 6 speed
Styling, power at all ranges, gas mileage, value, HUD
Interior trim quality should be better and it could be accomplished easily. The C6 will do better.
The stereo is good but could use a boost as well.
Here is the deal - I am a used car dealer and can drive any car on the planet - it is one of the perks! I buy what I want, drive it and sell it - simple as that. I have personally owned over 60 cars and driven just about everything there is. I bought a 2002 C5 Conv at dealer auction in May 04 and drove it for around a month before selling it - quickly. THe minute it was gone I regretted it. Instead of buying another at auction I took advantage of the massive discounts on 2004's making room for the C6. Another dealer gave me a great deal - MSRP $57K. See price paid above...I flew from Atlanta to Pittsburgh to buy car and drove it 700 miles back to Atlanta - smiling all the way. There is something magical about the car, I cannot explain it. That raw, American V8, the road feel, the tracking. It is such an easy car to drive, much easier than a 2002 M3 I just sold. AND everybody loves a Vette, smiles, waves from all. The HUD is just about the coolest gadget I have ever seen on a car. Too much. The power on tap and the mileage are insane! My M3 got 17 MPG and I babied it. This car just got 27MPG with the AC running, top up. Such a beautiful machine and for the money - it cannot be beat. Also, after driving all the euro machines, I am proud to be in a home grown machine that gives me more satisfaction and pleasure than any other car I have driven.
