Default 2500 miles & the top rattles.

My boss has a 2016 regular stingray vert as his dd. He wanted me to collect some money (legal money lol) for him but he is quite tight with the dollar and never offers to pay for gas whenever I use my car. He had no problem tossing me the keys to go bouncing around the South Bronx NY which is a toilet & has potholes everywhere to get his money. Anyway, the top rattles or squeaks when going over potholes like an old car. I asked him if he noticed it when I returned, he said it only does it sometimes lol. That would make me crazy (which is a short trip) w/ 2500 miles and $600+ a month.

Hahaa
Maybe I ll rent one for a weekend just to get it outta my system and not watch with wishful thinking "only if I could afford it".


I have the handling/power I would need for our crappy roads here anyway in my Camaro. Sure vettes look good in pictures or driving by I doubt I want a car payment and still be only have a slightly better quality car.
