While not directly listed in the article, one of the biggest “pros” to owning a C6 has to be the vast assortment of options for customization. This edition of the Corvette seemed to have been designed for the aftermarket in mind. The C6 has been able to grow around the aftermarket crowd. Not just with the engine, but the exterior as well. Of all the generations before it, the C6 makes customization more highly encouraged. And this has bled in to the seventh generation.
All of the customization in the world won’t mean much, however, if you do not take care of your car and keep up with the routine maintenance. At the time, the C6 was the most technologically advanced Corvette ever produced. The stock engine was top of the line, and the most powerful to ever roll out of Bowling Green. To not take proper care is just asking for unwanted trouble. Hopefully you’re already on the right maintenance path if you own one, but it’s a good idea to make sure with this week’s article.
