Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Chevrolet Corvette?
performance, handling, look, price
Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Chevrolet Corvette?
Improve the self-adjusting clutch. It has been a huge problem because under the right circumstances it can get so far out of adjustment that it needs to go into the shop and take down the entire drivetrain in order to re-adjust it. The clutch needs to be re-designed.
2008 Chevrolet Corvette Review:
I am on my 2nd 2008 Corvette because I won an Ohio Lemon Law case from my 1st Corvette received in October of 2007 and had to re-order at GM's expense. Unfortunately, the replacement Corvette has the same problem as the 1st one and I am now getting grief from GM. Apparently, the self-adjusting clutch can actually get itself completely out of adjustment if the engine is revved while the clutch pedal is slightly off the floor. GM calls it the "sweet spot". They are now blaming my driving habits even though they have acknowledged that the design will allow for this to occur. When I asked what can be done to satisfy me if it should continue to occur, A Corvette Manager suggested that I, "get out of a Corvette and into something else". Unbelievable! Do you believe this? I would not recommend a 2008 Corvette with standard transmission to anyone and I can't really recommend and GM vehicle because of the manner in which my experience is being handled to this point. I am an experienced driver of standard shift, performance cars, including a previous Corvette and am insulted, frustrated and extremely disappointed. It is no wonder GM is in trouble.
