2009 Chevrolet Corvette User Reviews
Convertible LT2 shown
- $28,433 - $67,172
- Too numerous too mention...
- None that I can think of...
I am 5'8", 220 lbs. and am quite comfortable while driving...the manual 6 speed gets decent and even rather good gas mileage; but it is a Corvette, not a Prius ...the Z-51 suspension and Goodyear run flats give a firm, solid ride...but then I much prefer a stiffer ride with a much better feel of the road than a plush one that feels like the car wallows...it handles like a dream...I am very satisfied with the build quality...I have the LT3 package with the heads-up display...the HUD should be made a standard feature on all cars - no need to take your eyes off the road to check speed, etc...the optional NPP exhaust has a very satisfying tone and looks good - it also adds 6 bhp to the base 430...I am looking into getting a cold air intake system to add a few more but just as it sits right now I must make absolutely sure the road ahead is wide open if I punch it (I will never forget the first time I used the Floral Ave. - 99 onramp in Selma - it was truly worth the price of admission)...I feel lucky to be able to own my Corvette...as one car magazine put it - driving a Corvette is fuel for the soul......read morehide

- Too numerous to list...
- Can't think of one....
I waited 45 years to get my 'Vette and it was worth every second of the wait...it is an '09 coupe...manual...Z-51 with optional exhaust...if you are thinking about getting one stop thinking and do it...

- Best performance value, awesome acceleration, "I-mean-business" looks, good fuel economy
- Seat bolsters are weak
I could not be happier with this car. The Z06 tells the world that the USA can still build great cars for a reasonable price! This is the BEST performance value available!!

- Style and Power
- Need tires every 12 months and you can't rotate.
Okay, so I have a C6 Manual transmission that gets up and moves! However, my brother brought home a Black on Black Z06 today and let me test drive.
Well, all I can say is that I did feel 100 more horsepower, but, I tell you what, my C6 is fast enough. If you are going to upgrade from the C6 than you just need to go big and get the Zr1. I didn't feel that much more in the Z06. Now don't get me wrong, I loved it, but I know now that my upgrade next year will be the ZR1.
Zr1 is the Best Sports Car Ever Made and It's American!...read morehide

- This car is wonderful. A true all American Hero. Full of power, grace, and beauty. A legend!
- Wish I could buy another one for the wife. She keeps asking me to borrow the car.
If you are looking to have fun, but don't want to lose your house over it. Get a Corvette convertible, and forget about getting a mistress. It's a lot cheaper, and you will still get to see the kids anytime you want. This car is fun, reliable, and will keep you smiling every time you hit the push button start. Love the Corvette Convertible! It gives you pleasure every time. I have enjoyed the Porches, Mercedes, and Lexus to name a few, but my heart belongs to that beautiful American Corvette.
Only thing I would do, is to raise it about 1.5 inches in the front so I don't scrape that beautiful spoiler in the front.
Did I mention, I truly love this car?
I love my Corvette!...read morehide

- Don't buy it for fuel economy. Put the Super Unleaded!!
- Waiving to everyone corvette owner. It's cool but, man, I don't know you.
Let me just tell you that in your lifetime, this is the baddest american sportscar ever made. So if you're American, this is the sweet heart! Just cruz at 55 mph, everyone knows you can smoke'm! I just smile at Mustangs!

- The balance you have when you drive it is amazing. Shifts smooth! Fast
The C6 is perfect. Everyone compliments on how nice it looks. Mine has push screen navigation and the heads up display with voice direction.

- LS7 seems like a Rocket engine, great on gas in 6th gear
- Low front scrapes on most any elevations
I cant believe something this powerful has a license plate.
And in 6th gear I routinely get 32 mpg. canadian.
Its my first Corvette, and I have had no regrets at all, only
that I wish I got this earlier. "When you turn this car on,
this thing absolutely returns the favor".!!

- Fuel economy, six speed manual transmission, Drivers Information Center (DIC)
- Nothing negative so far
This is our 3rd Corvette and so far it is the best. We traded our 2005 Cadillac XLR for this car and absolutely no regrets. The acceleration and handling is incredible.
