Recall Alert: 2015 Corvette

Order Due To Faulty Airbag, Brake Cable

Sep 12, 2014

For the past couple of weeks, it's been fairly quiet on the recall front, but that changed late yesterday when General Motors issued two recalls and a stop-sale order for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette.

According to Auto News, the largest of the two recalls is meant to fix the driver's side airbag. Though GM hasn't publicized specifics of the problem, it appears that the airbag module was manufactured in such a way that it can detach from the steering wheel during a collision.

There's no schedule for this recall yet. However, when it begins in earnest, owners will be able to take their vehicles to a Chevrolet dealer, who will replace the driver's side airbag module altogether.

The airbag recall affects some 2,000 Corvettes. Thankfully, few of them have been delivered to dealers or customers yet, with most still on the lot of the GM plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The second recall stems from a problem with one of the Corvette's two parking brake cables. GM says that the cable was improperly installed, which leaves just one cable to keep the car in position on inclines. So, even if the parking brake is set, there's the potential for the vehicle to roll away.

GM hasn't detailed the fix for this problem either, However, reports suggest that an adjustment to the parking brake cable should resolve the issue.

The parking brake cable recall affects 800 Corvettes, 100 of which have been delivered to consumers.

Of these two actions, the airbag recall is the most troubling for GM and for Corvette fans, because it appears that replacement modules aren't yet available -- and there's no real indication when they might arrive in dealers' hands. Until they do, dealers have been told to stop taking orders for the 2015 Corvette, potentially dampening strong sales of the new model.

If you're one of the lucky few who's already received your 2015 Corvette and you have questions about the recall, you're encouraged to contact Chevrolet customer service at 800-222-1020.
