My New S

My car was delivered yesterday. I am very satisfied. Being a Corvette guy for so long, I was a little worried I might not be happy with the S. I am very happy. I only wish I didn't have to go out of town this weekend so I could get to know it a little better. I have a couple newbie questions.

1. Is there a "switch" that will raise the spoiler?

2. Do you always have to use a key for the center console?

3. On the interstate, I have a slight vibration in the steering wheel, I can't tell if the rubber is not warm, or air-pressure is low or if the wheels need to be rotated and balanced. Can the tires be rotated?

I plan on reading the owners manual when I get back from the Daytonna race.

The only disapointment I can find is the radio, I think you need an engineering degree to figure it out. Although, I can't rule out, operator error. Thanks in advance for all of you help and support.

Congrats on the new purchase.
1) yes the switch is located next to your fuse panel down by your left foot on the floor board side panel. That will manually raise and lower the rear wing.
2) No you should be able to turn it to the unlock position and that be it without always having to use the key.
3)Slight vibration. Could be alot of things. But to answer your immediate question ...No you cant rotate your tires. The fronts and the back tires are two different sizes.

Post some pictures. Congratulations on the new S.


Vibration could be any number of things. Hard to nail down sometimes.
