2015 Corvette Recalls: Parking Brake And Airbags
General Motors has issued two safety-related recalls for the 2015 Corvette Stingray.
The two recalls affect approximately 900 cars in all. Eighty nine (89) Corvettes are affected by a driverís side airbag separation issue, and other issue with parking-brake cables affects approximately 783 Corvettes.
With the airbag issue, which was the main reason for the stop-sale request by GM on September 11, affects Corvettes that were assembled from August 20 to August 27, 2014. The airbag module back-plate could fracture, allowing the airbag itself to separate from the steering wheel.
The other problem, pertaining to the parking brake, affects Corvettes assembled from August 20 to September 4, 2014. In some vehicles, only one of the rear parking cables may be completely sealed and engaged, which would lead to the parking brake system only operating one of the park-brake drums.
For the airbag issue, GM will replace the driver's side frontal airbag free of charge. As for the parking-brake issue, dealerships will inspect the parking brake system and correct the installation if necessary. GM estimates that only 7 of the 783 Corvettes recalled actually have the problem.Rob Loszewski, Site Administrator
