I'm looking at a few C6s right now, and am not sure which to get. In general, they're either around 25k miles for $26-27k, or 80k+ miles for under $20k. A low mileage one sounds great because it would almost be like getting a new car, but I could also save some money to take a higher mileage one.

Obviously color, trim, etc. factor into my decisions, but in general, would you take a lower mileage C6 for more money or the higher mileage C6 for less money?

common knowledge

The accepted wisdom with any used car is to buy the lowest miles you can afford.

I am no expert, but those that post with high corvette skill levels, always seek cars with low milage, often taking years looking for a satisfactory car. I understand that . repairs are a pain, and if you can afford to avoid them , you should.

it took me some effort to find a non dealer shop that wouldn't screw up the car. Gm requires special training to work on the cars, for good reason.

hello Maladosa

Why spend more money?
I sold my C6 LS3 with 75,000 km.
My buyer is the happiest man in the world.
It is important to ensure that the car has always been well maintained by a serious authorized garage and that its owner is a careful person.
It is also necessary to see if the car has never been on a racetrack.
If these conditions are met then for 75,000 km the car is almost new.
LS3 motors are trouble-free motors.
The only problem I've had in three years with the C6 is a battery change on the remote control.
Now, you're very lucky with the Corvette prices
In 2017 I sold my 2008 C6 LS3 with 75000 km for a price of 36000€ (40770£)
