I have 2006 Chevy Corvette what a joke this car has been. I have had a new engine I have spent 40,000 on repairs to this car its never ending.I have replaced everything on it twice. I just got it out of the shop yesterday again for the thousands time and now the traction control light the brake light the tire light on the dash is on. This car is a nightmare. I have paid so much money to never ending drama. Help I beg you. The car has caught on fire due to the clutch fluid leaking everything you can think has has been about a lemon. No lemon law will help.
