The early reviews continue to glow about the new 2014 Corvette Stingray, and added to the list this week is an important one – Consumer Reports.
If you can live up to the standards set by this product-ranking giant, then you know you’re doing something right.
And Consumer Reports’ first time behind the wheel of a Stingray was favorable, according to a story just released on their website.
Chevrolet got some good news and some bad from Consumer Reports in its annual Car Brand Perception survey.
In the survey, Consumer Reports lists each automaker’s highest-rated vehicle – and its lowest-rated.
Fortunately for Corvette fans, the Z06 was Chevy’s highest rated with a score of 92.
As the Chevrolet Corvette enters the last year of the C6 generation, it’s surprising to see that the popular sports car – which has earned kudos for its quality for years – has suddenly landed on the listing for Least Reliable listing in the latest Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey.
Our research on the Web couldn’t turn up the reason for this sudden poor rating, but at least the Corvette can take solace in the fact that muscle cars in general appear to have had a rough year.
Looking for the best American-made 2012 vehicle you can buy?
Well, according to Consumer Reports, then you need to buy a Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
Consumer Reports’ April 2011 edition ranks the Best and Worst of 2011 and the 2011 Corvette Z06 has earned a “best” rating with a score of 92. A car’s overall road-test score is the result of more than 50 individual tests and evaluations from Consumer Reports subscribers. For years we’ve derided Consumer Reports for its negative reviews on Corvette and what looks to be a bias against American-made cars in general. But it looks like the data is in and they can no longer dispute the fact that GM makes a very reliable car and that Corvette owners love them and would buy a Corvette again.
