Model Highlights

The Chevrolet Corvette is available as a coupe or convertible again for 2007. The standard engine for both--a 6.0L V8--produces 400 horsepower and 400 ft-lbs of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a six-speed automatic transmission is optional. Following an increasing trend for high-end performance cars, this transmission comes with steering wheel shifter paddles and a shorter axle ratio. Stopping power is supplied with four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and an active handling system.

Leather seat trim is standard, as is dual zone climate control, keyless access with push button start, and a limited slip rear differential. A host of wheels, audio systems, and memory features can be ordered, as can a navigation system.

Several unique options are available as well. GM's Magnetic Selective Ride control improves ride and handling by actively modulating the stiffness of the shock absorbers. The Z51 performance package includes stiffer suspension components, larger cross-drilled brake rotors, and altered gear ratios when ordered with a six-speed manual.

Aside from swapping a fixed top for a manually folding cloth top, the convertible is very similar to the coupe. Exceptions include a standard power passenger seat and the Z4Z Indy 500 Pace Car Package, which provides exterior graphics, a spoiler, and specific paint colors. It also includes DVD navigation and the Z51 performance package.

The Z06 Corvette returns for 2007. Starting at $69,175, it includes a 7.0L V8 that puts out 505 horsepower. Stiffer springs, Z06-specific shocks, and larger cross-drilled brakes with six-piston front calipers round out the performance hardware. The Z06 also looks different from the standard Corvette. Apart from being three inches wider, the Z06 sports a unique front fascia, grille, fenders, and quarter panels. A rear spoiler is also standard. To improve the weight distribution, the battery in the Z06 is mounted in the rear, and the fenders and the floor panels are made of carbon fiber. The Z06 also includes a heads-up display, which projects vehicle information onto the windshield.

For a limited time, the $7,500 Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Edition Z06 Package was available.


Pros

Track-ready performance; excellent sports car value.


Model News

The 2007 Corvette is largely unchanged from last year. An enhanced acoustic insulation package is now standard, and the size of the glove box was increased.


Value Writeup

The 2007 Chevrolet Corvette provides excellent performance, great handling, and the prestige of one of America's iconic cars. Prices start at $44,250 for the coupe and $52,590 for the convertible, making the Corvette one of the best performance bargains in the automotive industry today. Easier to live with every day than a Dodge Viper and more powerful than a Porsche 911 Carrera, the Corvette is a competitive world-class sports car for relatively few dollars. Surprisingly, the EPA rated the base Corvette at 28 mpg on the highway.

Summary
GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005 THROUGH 2007 CORVETTE AND MODEL YEAR 2006-2007 CORVETTE Z06 EQUIPPED WITH A REMOVABLE ROOF. THE ADHESIVE BETWEEN THE ROOF PANEL AND THE FRAME MAY SEPARATE. IF THERE IS A PARTIAL SEPARATION, THE DRIVER MAY NOTICE ONE OR MORE SYMPTOMS, SUCH AS A SNAPPING NOISE WHEN DRIVING OVER BUMPS, WIND NOISE, POOR ROOF PANEL FIT, ROOF PANEL MOVEMENT/BOUNCE WHEN A DOOR OR HATCH IS CLOSED, OR A WATER LEAK IN THE HEADLINER.

Consequence
IF THERE IS A COMPLETE SEPARATION, THE ROOF PANEL MAY DETACH FROM THE VEHICLE. IF THIS WERE TO OCCUR WHILE THE VEHICLE WAS BEING DRIVEN, IT COULD STRIKE A FOLLOWING VEHICLE AND CAUSE INJURY AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.

DEALERS WILL INSTALL A NEW DESIGN ROOF PANEL FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING JANUARY 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438 OR AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette vehicles manufactured March 29, 2004, through June 22, 2007. In the affected vehicles, the underhood bussed electrical center (UBEC) housing can expand and cause the headlamp low beam relay control circuit wire to bend. If the wire is repeatedly bent, it may fracture causing a loss of low beam headlamp illumination.

Consequence
The loss of low beam headlamp illumination will decrease the driver's visibility, as well as the vehicle's conspicuity to other motorists, increasing the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the UBEC housing unit, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 13146. Note: Model year 2008-2013 Chevrolet Corvettes will be covered under customer satisfaction program number 14203 for the same issue.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
