The 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 is the latest supercar killer on the block, but 490 of them will need to head back to the dealership.
Cars.com posted the recall bulletin on Tuesday, which details the issue and how Chevrolet will resolve the problem. Under hard braking or acceleration, the diagnostic module could “enter a fault state.” Thus, the module may not relay crash data and not deploy the proper airbags in the event of a crash, which increases the likelihood of an injury.
Dealerships will reprogram the sensing diagnostic module with updated software for free to fix the issue.
Chevrolet and GM did not provide a notification schedule for when owners should prepare to bring their vehicle to a dealer for the software update, but any Corvette ZR1 owner can head to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration’s website to check and learn more information.
