I'll be making an entry level purchase within the next 12 months for a weekend driver. hopefully an '05 or newer. thought i might hear what some owners may have to say about their experiences. really looking for the guy or gal that can point out any land mines to avoid so my voyage can start out pleasant and economical.

Smooth runnin, bobc

We got out 05' Vette in March of 2015 - love it! I build a few car before marriage and kids and can say this is a complete package. 400hp, comfortable ride (some time stiff) and only two seats, one for me and the wife. We got an excellent deal on the car and even being 11 years old (now) it runs and drives great.

The only thing missing I wish I would have considered is the lack of MP3 player/interface. I believe it was not until 2008 that GM addressed this. I am planning on plugging into the XM receiver and using it to interface with an MP3 player. Not a big XM fan.

The NAV is integrated and will display on the HUD (there are 3 modes) and I really like that and the NAV take a little getting use to the controls. There are some GREAT sites for the HUD and I used The Red Lion II for the NAV information. It is better organized than the owners manual in my opinion.
