According to filings submitted with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, General Motors has issued two separate safety recalls for the 2015 Corvette involving airbag and parking brake issues.
The problem: The first recall involves the driver airbag module back plate, which may fracture and allow the driver airbag to separate from the steering wheel. The second recall involves a parking brake cable that may allow the vehicle to roll away if the brake is not fully engaged.
Affected vehicles: 2015 Corvettes built from August 20 to September 4, 2014.
Number of affected vehicles: 872 Chevrolet Corvettes − 89 for the airbag, 783 for the parking brake.
The fix: According to Edmunds, the Corvette airbag recall begins on October 27; Chevrolet dealers will replace the driver-side airbag. Dealers will also be responsible for inspecting and correcting the park brake cable installation.
Contacts: If you’re an owner of an affected vehicle, you may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or your local dealer.
