Reading about all these Corvette engine failures is one thing, but actually hearing the knock is quite brutal. The video below doesn’t represent the first occurrence, yet GM hasn’t officially made any statements regarding the multiple engine failures.
We’re sure somebody’s noticed by now, as the sounds heard in the video below are hard to ignore.
There was an issue with getting a replacement engine for this Corvette that supports evidence that this defect could be bigger than we think. The first replacement engine that was sent to the dealership arrived with metal dust in the cylinder heads, and was sent back. If you recall the Stingray which was long-term tested by Car and Driver that suffered an engine failure at only 6000 miles, it too was affected by loose metal which got into the motor’s bearings.
We hope to hear something from GM in the near future, and that no other failures occur. Do you think Corvette fans should be worried, or are these just a few isolated incidences? If so, when does a few become too many? Watch the video, and then let us know your thoughts.
