Is it a BAD IDEA to buy a USED 2016 C7 Corvette C7 Corvette Z06 Review (3LZ w/Z07) 2 months ago   10:31

When the C7 Corvette ZO6 came out on to the scene there was a mixture of cheers and tears! On one hand the car was now supercharged and could be bought with an automatic, and on the other enthusiasts were saying that it lost it's way. At the end of the day what we have is a top performing Corvette with 650hp and 650ft lbs of torque. Is there any reason to fear buying a used 2016 Corvette ZO6?

How to people enjoy watching this guys reviews? Literally sounds like a robot reading a script. Anything covered here could be found looking at GM's site. What a joke.

Thank you, always learning with your vids!

Blackout badges are an option on any Stingray or ZO6. Also flat bottom steering wheel went into every Stingray and ZO6 from 2016 forward. I don't feel like you did your homework before you did your review

You never answered the question of your title

great car! and review
Talk to the guys at the track, this car can take a beating and asks for more, a experience race car driver can't even use it's ability

I've had my '17 Z06/07 for going on two years now. I absolutely love it. It has been bulletproof and is incredibly practical. I drive it all year long up here in Saskatchewan Canada with studded winter snow tires on it. It's amazing how planted the car is. I have no problem driving on snow and ice covered roads with it, and that is where the automatic transmission really comes in handy. The transmission switches gears so quickly in automatic, and changes just before 2000 rpm so you're always hooked up. You just lightly press the gas pedal and the car is constantly accelerating regardless of the road surface. I could never change the gears and keep the car in the traction like that with a manual transmission.

Bright red "calipers" not "rotors"

If you're buying a used C7 Z06 I would shoot for a 2017 or later.

The Corvette is always changing the model and style my 2016 is obsolete.

Here's an actual opinion for those that would like one since the clickbait title doesn't offer it. Friend just sold a '17 Z06 Z08 pkg with 6k on it. Sold it thru CarMax. Potential buyer looked up my friend (as noted on the History report) on the interwebs and politely asked him if he would mind sharing some details about it. My friend, who loved this dream car, gladly offered the history on it and chatted about it with him. Used almost exclusively for track days running oversized slicks, noted when new brake pads had been installed and tire change mileages, no noted issues other than a tendency to heat the oil pretty hot on track days if it wasn't a fresh change. Even sent him some track day photos we had. So reach out...these are a dream purchase for most and we all love to talk about them. And, if you have that kind of accurate history, it will add value when you go to sell it.

Is it a bad idea or isn't it???? What's the opinion. We know what a Z06 is. Is it a bad idea to buy a used one? How are they holding up? Anything??? Bueller??

As we wait patiently for the official release of the new C7 Corvette ZR1 I'm spending some quality time with it's powerful sibling the C7 Corvette Z06! The current king of the Corvette lineup.

Check out Bradshaw Chevrolet in Greer, South Carolina!
