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.

Relax. You won't have to think too hard about this one. You like the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray? (Cool, so do we.) Well then, Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman says you'll love the convertible version. After all, it's the exact same car as the coupe but with a droptop, which Chevy has managed to do without sacrificing body rigidity or adding weight. So you're assured of the same price-conscious performance but with infinitely greater headroom. "I don’t like convertibles," you say? You're dismissed. Everyone else read Bragman's review below.

BlackWidowCorvetteStingray

What do you get when you cross a barb-tailed fish with a venomous spider? At the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, it means you get a supercar with looks that could kill — and performance to match — that's fit for a deadly super-agent who fights alongside "Earth's Mightiest Heroes." Chevrolet today gave the world its first peek at the Black Widow Corvette Stingray, a menacing-looking, black-on-black version of the current-generation Vette behind the wheel of which movie audiences will see actress Scarlett Johansson's Natasha "Black Widow" Romanoff when "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" opens April 4.

More 2014 Chicago Auto Show Coverage

Tim Mahoney, Chevrolet global chief marketing officer, introduced the Black Widow Stingray during a triple unveiling that also included the bi-fuel 2015 Silverado Heavy Duty CNG (compressed natural gas) pickup truck and 2015 Chevrolet City Express cargo van. The presentation opened with a screening of the trailer for this year's sequel to "Captain America: The First Avenger," Cap's first film since 2012's super-friends extravaganza "Marvel's The Avengers." Marvel Entertainment’s cross-marketing partnership will introduce GM products to a film universe that has previously featured prominent appearances by vehicles from Toyota and Honda by way of Lexus and Acura.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Up Close

11932310805_46b027d7b4

You'd be forgiven if you thought that this is the new Corvette C7.R race car, and not the 2015 Corvette Z06. From the aggressive winglets on the front wheel openings to the low carbon fiber air splitter to the see-through high spoiler out back, this thing screams race car. Apparently when members of the race sanctioning body for the new C7.R's series came to GM to view the car, they thought the Z06 was the racing version of the Corvette too.

Whereas the last Z06 was barely discernibly different from the regular 'Vette, this puppy is obviously something special. The Corvette Stingray is already a ridiculously good-looking car, but the Z06 treatment takes it a step further. The grille is more menacing, the heat extractor in the hood is bigger, the badges are on the sides, NACA-style ducting tops the rear fenders and all of it screams race car.
