Default Pulled the trigger on a 2010 3ZR ZR1

I'd be on my way to get it this minute, if there wasn't a darn snowstorm bearing eastbound on I-90 from OH to NY. (Car is in the Toledo area) Time to start thinking about how I can unload my 2008 Z06 as painlessly as possible. I just pray this thing doesn't have the dreaded vibration issue. The salesman promised me that he took it up to 85mph on at least 2-3 test drives and noticed nothing out of the ordinary. I got the car for $59,000 out the door.

Beautiful, don't see many yellow ZR1s a'tall.
Stupid low miles justify a pretty good OTD price.

Congrats, let's hope it's good one.

Thanks Landru! I spoke with my local GM dealer for any warranty work records, or service inquiries, and the only logged entry was for a low beam jumper in 2014. No entries for any vibration issues, so, like you said, "lets hope it's a good one" This same car was for sale last summer in Indiana for $68,000

wow you made out good on that deal. Just picked up a 2010 about a year ago with the same mileage and I wish I would have gotten it for 59 OTD. Im actually not too far away from you in Buffalo. Don't see many ZR1's around these areas. You will love the car.

Nice car! Help preserve it's value and keep it close to stock, (in appearance, at least!)

Great car at a great price! I'm not a fan of yellow but on the ZR1 it looks awesome. Pictures don't do justice for these cars.

Congratulations on your new zr1! Looks beautiful.
If you notice any vibration I have heard a road force balance on the tires helps a lot. We have two 2011 zr1's in our family, mine has absolutely no vibration and my dad's is ever so slightly noticeable. Nothing that bugs him
Enjoy!!

You're not kidding, I couldn't find anything ZR1 related in NYS. I was patient and have been looking for nearly 6 months now. It stinks having to buy in the winter months, but that's when the best deals are found!!

I bought mine at the end of November of 2013 and figured I'd get at least a week of driving before I put it away for the winter. I parked it in the garage for the night and there was 4 inches of snow on the ground in the morning. It was a tough 5 months! I know your pain but on the up side you have the winter to figure out the Nav system!
