2015 Corvette - Valet Mode

Very cool feature. First started out as the track data recorder but instead it can be used as a valet mode.

It doesn't mention anywhere that you can limit speed or RPM's but still a great feature.

Good. That's way too much power for some kid to handle around a parking lot.

a cool feature would be to flip a switch in the locking glove box that puts the car in limp mode. 35mph and 3,000 rpm tops. how anticlimactic would that be for valet?

20 mph, 2,500 rpm tops.

They shouldn't even be leaving a parking lot. No need to go any faster. That would be a perfect feature!!!

I really like how it takes video and audio. Last thing you want is the valet to bake out your car or take a girl in there.

I valet parked for a little while. 25mph is plenty fast. There's still an e-brake and I bet those nannies don't kick in for reverse.

My car has a valet mode:
Hand them a $20, park myself up front, keep my key. If not possible (sometimes they insist they need the key), I park myself in a garage.
