As a first time Z06 buyer, (yr 2000 for a 2001 Z06) I have to say that I had major concerns and issues about quality and durablility. While I have had the Z06 app a yr, and am approaching 20,000 miles, my extrapolation is that it will be durable. However, that does remain to be seen. Based on my 2001 Z06 experience and the almost "Toyota-like" emphasis on constant improvement, I not only would not hesitate getting another model yr Z06, but would recommend it to others.
Being a Ford man my whole life, it was difficult to change to a Chevrolet vehicle. I am right now at 435 miles and should be well into the post break-in fun over the next week. Just winding up those gears to 3500-4000 rpm is thrill enough to know that I will definitely purchase another new Vette. I know I can't just drop the hammer at 501 miles but next week is gonna be a blast.
Bottom line, I have only owned the car for six days but it has been a great experience so far. Can't wait for my next one!
I sound like a broken record here but the seats suck; the stereo is lousy and there is too much orange peel in the paint!
So, how did I vote? DEFINITELY!!!!!!
The car is an absolute blast to drive; tight as a drum, great brakes/handling. With all the positives, I can live with the negatives, the first 2 of which I can correct with a few $$$.
Love the car!! but GM let the market go all to hell when they let the dealers start selling them at 42k. Great for everyone who had not bought one buy then but a major hit for those who did. The car is the baddest thing around. I have no complaints about it. But if I would have waited 2 months I would have saved $$$. I figured they would come down at the end of the year but not 7K. Ohh well live and learn. :guiness:
