Vehicles Affected: Nearly 900 model-year 2015 Chevrolet Corvette sports cars in two separate actions, one involving about 800 vehicles manufactured between Aug. 20 and Sept. 4, and the other recalling nearly 100 vehicles manufactured between Aug. 20 and Aug. 27
The Problem: In the larger recall, only one of the rear parking-brake cables may be fully seated and engaged, resulting in the parking brake only operating on one of the rear park brake drums. Without the parking brake functioning on both rear wheels, the vehicle may roll away if parked on steep gradient, increasing the risk of a crash. In the smaller action, the driver-side frontal airbag module back plate may fracture upon deployment, allowing the front-impact airbag to separate from the steering wheel, increasing the risk of an injury or a crash.
The Fix: GM will notify owners affected by both recalls. In the larger action, dealers will inspect and correct the park brake cable installation, and in the smaller action, dealers will replace the driver-side front-impact airbag; repairs in both cases will be made for free. The automaker has not yet announced a notification schedule for either recall.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
