Default Best way to get out of 2018 Z06 with 770 miles.

I was once so excited and happy to have the pleasure to buy a brand new Z06. But now, not so much. What is the most gentle way to get out without a crazy financial hit? Honestly, my opinion it isn't worth 90k. I ended up getting a Black Rose 2018 2LZ for 89k out the door. Any members wanna help me help you? Potential buyers?

What specifically is it that you aren't liking about your Z06? Sure, you may be able to get an arguably better car for 300K or so. What's your budget?

I never really warmed up to the C7 body lines, but that is a beautiful car.....what is the downside that you see with this car?

I have a 2017 3LZ Z07 with a sticker of 104K listed for sale. 920 miles on it. I priced it at 85k and have had 0 bites. With these cars I bet I would have to get into mid or lower 70's to move it.
Im not being aggressive as I don't need to sell, just want to get a new toy!

I'm not looking to get a Ferrari or Porsche or Lamborghini....I just dont feel like Chevy crafted the interior well. At first glance yea it was cool and comfy. But you start to notice the details and all the cheap parts. The wide body Z06 lines and the LT4 is what drew me in. If I was to go back, I would've gone the S63 Amg Coupe direction. When I was 18, I had a 2000 WS6 Trans am and loved it so much, always wanted to graduate to a corvette. Just a lil disappointed. Shouldve gone the 1 owner low mileage route so I wouldn't be in such a loss.like now.

what was sticker? Did you pay the sales tax yet?

my guess is youíll lose sales tax cost and probably 5 to 10k on car.

If you owe payments on it you probably take a hit on your cash down payment.

89k is a steep price to pay even when loaded up with options.

I don't see any way you get out of this without getting a financial beating. Trading up to a more expensive car may be the only way out.

OP, what kind of loss are you anticipating? IMO you should be able to sell it in $70-$75k range.

That is like getting kicked then going in for even more kicking.
The interior really? Paid a lot! Only had it 3 months better buy some soap to have for the bath!

You posted the exact opposite of my opinion.



I think the interior is actually done very well, I like it better than most if not all McLaren, Lamborghini and Ferrari. I am partial to Maserati and Porsche, they have nice interiors but I don't like them more or less than the Z06, all three are equally pleasant for me.


I am actually looking/thinking of getting a Ferrari 430, 2008 or so.
The interior does NOT match the exterior. Looking at the car, you want to dry hump its leg but that interior is so barren and sparse.


I wish you luck but the year and low mileage neither help nor hurt you. Your in the worst negative equity period, the first 5 years of ownership.

question is why did you buy it if you didn't like it?

As others have mentioned you’re going to take a financial loss unfortunately. Nice car though, 7spd, auto? Put it in the for sale section, and hope for a pretty decent offer. I would also try CarMax.

Ouch, you are screwed in 2 ways....color and value loss....you have to find someone that wants that color and I'm going to guess maybe 72 grand. Not sure what you paid or owe, but yeah, I hate to say it, you're screwed

Make yourself feel better about taking the initial hit?

take it to a MB dealer a d trade it in on your S63 coupe which is what? 180 190k? They have plenty of wiggle room to get you "what you think is reasonable" for your C7.. and if you think the resale hit on the vette was bad? Lol.. hope you LOVE that benz...

shame...damn shame...

you're not driving it enough imo. The car is amazing. Like your own personal superhero outfit.. You don't get into your C7Z... you wear it..like a suit.

Hard to believe the interior is the issue, but you paid too much out the door, now you are going to take another huge hit, there is no way out unless you trade up.

You will need lots of KY Lubricant. I have a 2018 2lz z06 auto with PDR. MSRP was $89,570. I paid $78K + taxes. Looks like you got robbed when you were buying the car. Although on a personal level as a Sales Manager of a car dealership im certainly impressed by your salesman. I need more guys like him working for me.
