General Motors is recalling 46 units 2015 Chevrolet Corvette because of a part on the rear suspension that may not have been properly tightened.
The problem: on the affected vehicles, the “toe link outer ball joint on the rear suspension may not have been properly tightened during the assembly process”, causing it to eventually loosen and separate and resulting in a reduction in vehicle stability and steering control, while increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
In addition, GM said that a loose toe link can cause the rear suspension to make loud metallic noises, particularly when the vehicle is traveling around corners or over bumps or potholes.
Affected vehicles: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette built between September 26th and October 2nd.
Currently, 43 of the affected Corvettes are located in the United States, while three more are in GM’s possession internationally. Two of these are in Germany and the other is in Canada, making for a total of 46 vehicles.
Number of vehicles affected: 46 total.
The fix: GM will notify owners of the recall and dealers will inspect and replace any damaged parts. In addition, GM told dealers to tell owners “that shuttle service or some other form of courtesy transportation is available and will be provided at no charge.”
