<<They could use an automatic system like I remember an old Cadillac having. But probably not allowed in these times as it would maybe sheer a childs finger off. >>

Those pneumatic closure devices are on many, many vehicles nowadays ... including minivans ... which use them to automatically raise and lower the entire rear lift gate. I never thought about using that on the hatch ... maybe it was considered ... I would imagine space and weight would be a concern.

Had to delete a reply from happy. He must have missed a | somewhere in the QUOTE tag. Here is the text of his post:

Not much wrong may just be the answer!  At this point I'm trying to make the decision of whether or not should I get into a new C7 or put money into my C6 Grand Sport to bump the horsepower and maybe a little suspension work.  Spend the money on a new C7 or the C6?  Embarrassed

Put the money in the 6 and have a beast few 7's can touch.


Also; no Camaro tail lights....LOL

I bought a brand new 2013 base coupe 1G1YE2DW8D5102517.  This corvette is simply the best vehicle that I have ever owned.  I can only find three flaws that could have been improved upon...  The first is that the ashtray door when open is too close to the the gear shifter knob.  The second flaw concerns the windshield wiper arms.  It is not possible to fully lift the passenger side wiper arm up so that the wiper arm is completely perpendicular to the windshield.  The floor mats are the third flaw.  They just do not adequately cover the floor.  I replaced them with Husky Floor Liners.  I just do not understand why GM cannot at least offer Husky or Weather Tech products as an option for all of their vehicles that are built for export to Canada.  These flaws are the only complaints that I have about the corvette.  It is a shame that I may have to sell the car to prevent it from being vandalized yet again.

The Grand Sport does NOT give you any more horsepower!  Just the wide body (and tires) and Z06 brakes.  A poor value for the extra money in my opinion.

The Lloyd's floor mats are very nice.  Must larger and comes with the Corvette emblem stitched in.

Not much goes wrong with the C6s.  The only thing I can report is my battery went south after 4 years from new.  That seems to be a pretty short life to me.  And the factory tires wore out in 20,000 miles.  And I don't drive hard!

I have a 2005 Coupe, and having some issues last couple years with my climate controls locking up or simply not functioning at all (ie blank display).  It's intermittent so I suspect just a bad connection in behind there, but when I took it to my GM dealer they said they'd have to replace the entire unit at a cost of well over $1K.  I don't know how to take the dash apart so not going to try that, but it makes no sense just to assume the whole unit need to be replaced. 

Any suggestions?
