Other than the 6 speed automatic, are there any other differences that define a 2005 vs 2006?
If I were to look at the 2005, are there any problems that the 2006 corrected?
Thanks.

Welcome to the CAC! :CAC

I do not know enough to comment much. In the case of the C5, the changes from year to year were incremental. I suspect that the C6 is mostly the same way. The C6 drivers will be along soon to fill in the details.

In a manual trans, the 05 needs to be in reverse or else the battery will drain. 06 corrected that . Also the XM wart on the 05 is hidden in the 06.

The steering wheel is different

a peek at the steering will tell you at a glance.

Other than that, not much.
