Recall Alert: 2005-2006 Chevrolet Corvette

05chevy_corvettes3
GM has issued a recall for 40,028 Corvette vehicles from the 2005 and 2006 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall is for vehicles built between March 2004 and January 2006 that have a tilt and telescoping steering column. You can find a car’s build date listed on a sticker applied to the driver’s door or doorjamb.

Repeated movement of the steering column could interrupt the signal within the column, which will illuminate the message “Service Active Handling System.” In rare instances, this could apply one or more of the brakes and pull the Corvette to the right or left. If the driver is caught off guard, this could lead to a dangerous situation.

GM dealers will repair the steering column for free. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 800-630-2438 or GMC at 866-996-9463. They may also contact NHTSA’s vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.

Just went to GM dealer and they have no information on this recall.

A bulletin was published and handed out on paper and electronically on 4/23/10. If your dealer does not have #10118 they can look it up in GMVISS or SI2000. If they don't want to do this then locate a dealer that will. The press makes this out to be a big thing when it is a simple inspection for a clip at the steering position sensor, if it is there then they do nothing, if it is missing they add a clip. Some media outlets would have you think they replace the whole column, not so.

Tallahassee dealer didn't know anything until I TOLD them about it while car was in there to solve the problem.

This isn't good! I was hoping to get some sweet corvette accessories but not if my car isn't working right. I wish people could get it the first time.
