The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has had strong sales numbers since it hit the market in 2013. But even a fast, powerful, and popular car isn’t immune from the tentacles of auto recalls. That’s exactly where the 2015 Corvette Stingray finds itself now with General Motors set to issue two recalls on the sought-after sports car .
Automotive News is reporting that GM is issuing these recalls to address problems with the Corvette Stingray’s airbags and parking brake cables. All in all, 2,800 models are affected by these problems, but most of these models have yet to leave dealerships. These issues are why GM sent stop-delivery orders to dealers late last week.
The airbag recall, in particular, affects around 2,000 Corvettes, most of which are still in Chevrolet’s plant in Kentucky. The problem centers on the driver-side airbag that could separate from the steering wheel in a crash, resulting in the potential injuries. An additional 800 2015 Corvette Stingray models have also been found to have defective parking brake cables that are not “fully seated and engaged” and could cause a significant drop in operational capability.
Both recalls have yet to be announced publicly because certain parts, especially for the airbags, are currently not available.
