Default Looking For Some Answers(Pros/Cons)

Hello All,

Oversea Right Now Coming Back Stateside, Thinking About Buying A C6,.
Just Wanted To Know What Are Some Common Problems, I Had An LS4 Monte Carlo, That Thing Had Some Issue's LOL, Transmission Sucked, And Burning An *** Load Of Oil Due To DOD, And Gas Was Like 15 In The City.

Also Thinking Of An Challenger, Or A Mustang 2010 GT(I Dont Want The New 5.0 Until The Bugs Are Fixed With Motor, And Transmission) Also Heard A Story Of Ford Doing DI On The New 5.0, So Better HP There And MPG.


Thanks For The Help.....Im Really Thinking C6 Tho......As A DD

Pro/Con Would Nice Also Never Owned A Vette

+1 - What he said ^^^

A few months ago I was looking for a new 2013 2SS Camaro. I always had muscle cars, and was comfortable with them.

I test drove a 2013 C6 GS...after a 15 minute drive I was convinced, and I ordered one which I am expecting in about 3 weeks.

I never drove any car in my life that handled like that C6, awesome!!!

Default looking for some answers pro con

I am fortunate enough to have both a 2000 c-5 and an 09 challenger r/t. Both are 6 spd and both drive very differently. I am a corvette guy but the challenger is a beefy heavy ride. i think it is good as a DD. I am 6'2'' and my c-5 would be a hard DD on my with its low ride height. There is nothing like a corvette. Perhaps a c-6 would be different than a c-5 as a DD. Both cars have mystique...would you rather have a fullback or a runningback? Both are cool but drive very different. Drive both. Dont be surprised if you choose the vette. Nothing like it. i was hooked at 17 years old

Welcome in,I have been fortunate to have owned a C-3,C-5 and now a month old C-6 Grand Sport. The GS is worlds apart from the C-5. Way to much fun for an old man like me.I had my first challenge a week ago when a Infinity M kept messing with me at several red lights, I don't street race but lets say I finaly got fed up and thumped his Azz. didn't realize till I looked it up that they run 420 hp.Not near enough to mess with a GS.
