Recall Alert: 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette

2007-chevy-corvette

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 111,889 model-year 2005-07 Chevrolet Corvette sports cars; GM says that Corvettes from the 2008-13 model years are also covered under a Customer Satisfaction Program.

The Problem: Over time, the under-hood electrical center housing could expand due to engine heat, causing the headlamp control circuit to bend. This could cause the wire to break and the low-beam headlamps to malfunction, increasing the risk of a crash.

According to GM, this issue does not affect the high-beam headlamps, marker lamps, turn signals, daytime running lamps or fog lamps. The automaker has reported "several hundred" complaints related to this issue, but no accidents.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free.

What Owners Should Do: GM has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Concerned owners can contact Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 for more information.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible Photo Gallery (28 Photos)

2015ChevroletCorvetteZ06Convertible

Let's not get too technical here: What you really need to know about the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 convertible is that it's the latest even-higher-performance version of the beloved supercar — without a top. So unless you have to worry about your new 'do getting destroyed in the wind or your toupee flying off and sticking to the windshield of the car eating your dust, you'll likely think that's pretty sweet.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

The Z06 convertible is now making its debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. There, visitors can check out how Chevrolet moved some things around to accommodate the droptop, as well as admire the new chassis, which the automaker says is rigid enough to stand up to performance driving but light enough to keep weight in check.

Chevy Steers the Action in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

Iron Man has an affinity for Audi. The Avengers are all about Acura. Now, Captain America — the poster boy for Made in the U.S.A. — demonstrates his domestic disposition by pledging allegiance to a brand that's as American as apple pie: Chevrolet. As Marvel Entertainment's latest Avengers-universe entry, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" dominated the box office this past weekend with an April-record-smashing $96 million bow, the bow-tie brand dominated the film's driving scenes.

Black Widow Corvette Stingray Is Auto Show Avenger

As we reported during the 2014 Chicago Auto Show in February, among the most prominently featured vehicles in the Chevy-heavy sequel is the custom black-on-black-on-black Chevrolet Corvette Stingray driven by actress Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow when she picks up Cap in front of the Capitol. (She's a spy, so obviously a totally bad-ass-looking supercar should help her keep a low profile, right?) Other showcased Chevrolets include the Tahoe SUV, Impala sedan and Silverado pickup truck.

Corvette_stingray

Chevrolet's range-topping 625-horsepower 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 won't be the only Corvette with an eight-speed automatic transmission for 2015. Entry-level Stingray models ditch 2014's six-speed automatic transmission in favor of the Z06-derived eight-speed that will boost fuel efficiency an estimated 5 percent while improving performance.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Expert Review

Current Corvette Stingrays with the optional six-speed automatic are rated at 16/28/20 mpg city/highway/combined while the standard seven-speed manual is 17/29/21 mpg. Official EPA test results for the eight-speed are currently pending.
