    i have a premier edition coupe. im the second owner but the original owner is a close friend and hardly drove it. he owned it for four years and only put 8500 miles on it. it now has 15k miles and have had a few issues. itís my 7th vette so iím no stranger to the vagaries of being a vette owner. when i got the car, i went ahead and changed all the fluids including tranny, rear diff, coolant, oil etc. also replaced the battery. had to replace the master and slave cylinder because of fungus in the fluid. yep, you read that right! cost me $4200 and my gm extended warranty refused to cover it because of contaminated fluid. how it got contaminated is beyond me. the manual says the fluid should be changed every 30k or three years. iíve had 5 other manual vettes and never changed the fluid in any of them and never had a lick of clutch trouble with any of them. had to change the two front tires at 12k miles as the inner area of both were worn down to the chord. obviously the alignment was off. the original owner had the car lowered by 2 inches when he got it. not sure if that had anything to do with it. the rear camera went bad and had to be replaced. gm did cover that. now the rear deck lid wonít kick up enough to get a finger under it to lift it up. iíve traced it to a misaligned rear deck lid causing it to rub slightly on the lower right hand corner with the rear deck. that friction is enough to keep it from kicking up. it barely moves. if i grease that corner, it solves the problem but is a temporary fix. after a couple weeks it no longer helps and i have to re grease. if i could just move the lid by a 16th, it would stop rubbing but i have not been able to find out how to do that. if anyone knows, iím all ears. no other issues to date.

    I got my 2014 off the showroom floor in Aug 2014. The only thing I would have addd if I had ordered it would have been the performance exhaust.At the following years bash at the NCM I had a Corsa sport exhaust installed cat back with xpipe. Great deal along with CORSA doing the install FREE! I love the note and the pop it gives.I also installed a stealthy STiR radar detector along with an ALP laser defense system. Those have saved me several times from the speed tax revenuers and numerous speed traps.
    I have a little over 26K miles I have replaced the original tires with Michelin All season tires. I did purchase an extended warranty from Fitchner(sp?). Other then regular oil changes nothing has required service. Best vehicle I have ever owned.
    My future plan is to consider the early C8 if itís within my budget.

    V1 VR it looks great. I almost did a deal on a Laguna Blue but they wouldn't go where I wanted them to go. The funny thing is that the Blade Silver came along a week later at a price I could not walk away from.
    2015 blade silver Z51 3LT A8 Stingray, jet black interior, competition seats, Z51 style chrome rims. Suntek clear bra, carbon flash metallic custom stinger stripe, side mirrors and rear spoiler.
    1986 two-tone silver over grey C4 survivor coupe with slate blue interior and only 47k miles.

    Mine is about 5 and a half-years old- just turned 14,000 miles. No problems to speak of. Changed the battery at 36 months - just my way of avoiding problems. The only slight issue I've had was I got a "Transmission Overheat" warning on the MFD while sitting in traffic a while back. Took her to the dealer for diagnostics and they could not find any indication of an issue in the system. Guess it was a glitch. I liked my C6, but LOVE the C7. I am toying with buying a C8 and have three of my friends 'bidding' on the LRG C7 already.
