Drove two hours to view a car I'd been emailing two sales reps about, neither thought to click the carguru link or CL link attached to the email stating, the car was listed a different price than they wanted. What a joke. Buyers beware. No organization or communication skills. Car seemed a little botchy but expected from a used lot with 10 year old cars.

Many owners of 2016 Chevrolet Corvettes (some 2015's) are reporting on various internet sites IE: Corvette Forum. Stingray Forum, that their new Corvettes, primarily base models with automatic transmissions produce a 'WARBLE' type noise at exactly 1500 RPM under light throttle load , as when going up a slight grade. I am one of said owners. Go to these internet sites and look up 'WARBLE' and even view the video / audio of the issue / complaint. Currently I understand that owners are invoking the lemon law process; GM 'supposedly' has taken back vehicle (s). Basically there is no proven correction at this time. 10/21/2016. I too have contacted GM andlike many, I was given a "case number" (sic).

Greatest Corvette made since my 1967 427 L-88

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 !!!

I recently traded in my LT1 2015 with 8 speed auto for a 2016 with 7 speed manual. I've always been a manual transmission guy with my sports cars and auto for the family sedans. I bought the automatic believing the paddle shift would simulate the manual experience. After almost two years of driving, I can say that the automatic doesn't deliver the classic sports car "feel." The downshifting is where I mostly notice the difference. The manual transmission Vette is a very different experience. I now feel that I'm really driving the manual Vette, not just putting the car in Drive and aiming it. I do mostly around town driving, so rarely get the car out of fourth gear, so constant shifting is not a hassle. The transmission shifts smoothly once I got used to the stiff clutch and found the correct shift points. So, if you're shopping for a Vette, my advice is to try both transmissions before you buy.

This is my 1st corvette and I absolutely love the car. The power is simply amazing! I have an M7 and when I add the active rev match and mash the petal this car moves.... The seats are comfortable and I am surprised how quickly I adjusted to sitting so low to the ground. Once your in the cabin you only notice how low you are when you pull up to a light with an SUV next to you. The sound system is great and the subwoofer makes the Windows rattle. If their was a complaint I would have to say that when the drive mode is set to "E" the steering wheel is rather loose. If you should decide to purchase a vette get ready for the admirers as at one point or another we all were.

Spectacular! Love the C7

This is my third Corvette purchase. I had two C5's, a 98 Coupe and 99 Convertible, and I still have the C5 Coupe. The evolution in Corvette styling did not appeal to me at first. However it took a couple years for the C7 to grow on me, now I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I still love the C5 for the car that it is, and the C7 for the car it became. My only personal drawback (this is obviously a reflection of my age) is the extensive use of electronics on the newer Corvette. Guess that this could be interpeted as: I am flawed, the C7 is perfect. Our technically dependent society says so. :-)

My 2016 Torch Red corvette is a beast. Rides like a space shuttle/jet. Modern like a 1st class space ship. I love it.

Traded my 2012 Grand Sport in on a new '16 Stingray. Found on a showroom in Ky at the end of model year. Great trade-in on my pristine GS as well as GM loyalty rebate and excellent dealer pricing. Absolutely love this car - my first auto on a vette. Car as $17G in options but wanted the Shark Grary Metallic exterior w/Kalahari interior. Black stinger stripe, mirrors and spoiler with transparent top w/red calipers. Absolutely gorgeous. Quieter than my GS convertible and beautiful interior design and function. The nav. system greatly improved and got 19.5 mpg on my 450 mile trip home from dealer. Feels like you are in a cockpit, much improved ride over my GS, as car feels smaller and you aim it more that steer it! Time will tell how it holds up but I am in love with this car! People gush over it.

A super car!

Just went over 1000 miles with the new vette. Incredible performance. Engine sound management is first rate. Interior finally lives up to corvette standards. A option I would recommend for the next generation vette would be a blind spot sensor capability. A sports car bargain! Get one!!!

This is our 5th vette, 99 Targa, 98 convertible, 2002 convertible, 2005 coupe and now the 2016 convertible. BEST YET. From hi-way to in town, easiest high performance car I have ever driven. Seats are great and the interior is plush, the leather is super and that's a big change. Auto top fast and quite. NO wind noise. Their is a monster under the hood, with the pipes open 460 hp. With a touch of the screen to close the pipes down it's a quite as a kitten. Light it up and hold on. Turn the engine control to ECO on the hi-way and it's get 33mph. Best bang for the buck on the market today.

Great car

This is my third Vette. I had two prior C5's which were great, but just wasn't personally fond of the C6 styling (though it's a great car). The C7 is the only Vette that my wife finds really comfortable to ride in. The seats are supportive, entry and exit is far better and the car feels very confident. The optional exhaust allows for the exhaust to be tamed down when that is appropriate and opened up when you are driving aggressively. Handling, traction and acceleration are inspiring. The 8 speed automatic is state of the art with almost no shift lag. The looks of any car is very personal. That said, I like this car. The fit and finish is excellent and the styling is fresh. Highly recommended.

Not missing my Panamera

I truly enjoyed owning the Panamera. It performed like a race car and was plush as a private jet! When I decided to trade for the Stingray I wondered if I would have remorse. After eight months I have no regrets. The car hasn't been perfect, touch screen was replaced within the first week and recently the bushings had to be replaced, which took about two weeks to resolve. Those issues aside, it's a wonderful car. Great exhaust sound, handles like its glued to the road and very comfortable interior. The exterior design is awesome!

So far, so good

500 miles in and happy so far. After 500 mile oil change (due to Z-51 package) will put the hammer down and try the launch control.

This is like a jet cockpit compared to my 2006. At 71 it will take me awhile to learn all of it's tech. options. I have had young, old, male, and female give me the thumbs up. She is white with red and black interior with black wheels. It is not a soft cushion ride. It is a sports car in the true sense. I only have 553 miles on her. A funny- stopped for gas and could not find the gas cap release. THERE are none, not even a gas cap. Sitting down and reading the books are important. This is a keeper.

A terrific car, but not perfect: UPDATE 2

Now ten months and 8,000 miles into a Z51 in Long Beach Red: Still a tremendous value and top-shelf sports car, a view from someone who has raced cars on the amateur level. It's not so much that acceleration, handling, braking, and feel are superb; it's that you feel attached to the car. A cyborg thing. The styling may be a bit over the top, compared, say, to a Porsche Cayman, but it remains a beautiful car. The interior is very comfortable. Apple CarPlay works OK at best; (1) Apple Maps lacks an intuitive screen, works slowly so that you sometimes miss a turn, and Maps itself has poor directions and out-of-date Tom Tom data (no Google Maps available); (2) the display won't always show the music playing; (3) not all the Apple playlists will scroll into view; and so on. Chevrolet blames it all on Apple, with no Chevy update available. Could be true. You can pack quite a lot under the hatch -- at least four suitcases. The electronics have become second nature. In addition to CarPlay, the other problem remains the shifter. Especially between gears 4 and 7, in quick upshifts or downshifts at speed, you can miss the gear or can't find the gear. I've never had this happen with any other car. Professional reviewers have complained about going 4 to 7, when they meant to go 4 to 5. That happens and more. Sadly, it's not a problem that Chevy can retro-fix, so far as I can see.

Breathtaking
