The C8 Corvette offers impressive mid-engine performance and chiseled good looks, with drivers cocooned in a cockpit-like cabin layout the caters to the nameplate’s sporting intentions. Now, however, one C8 Corvette owner has posted a video with a very weird glitch that flashes the Cadillac logo on the infotainment screen upon startup.
The video was posted to YouTube by user Jaysmizle, and is less than 3 minutes long. After a brief introduction, the owner explains that he is experiencing a glitch with the C8 Corvette infotainment system. After going shopping, the owner returned to his car to find that not only had all of his radio presets been erased, but his infotainment screen would flash the Cadillac logo on startup.
The owner demonstrates by turning the C8 Corvette off then on again. Sure enough, at the 52-second mark, we see the Cadillac crest displayed on the C8 Corvette infotainment screen.
“Did you guys see that?” the owner asks. “The freakin’ Cadillac emblem comes up on my main screen software and I’m clearly in my Corvette.”
The Cadillac logo is only on the screen briefly, but is clearly visible, with the multi-colored crest front and center on vehicle startup.
The owner can’t provide an explanation for the glitch.
“I’m gonna have to reset each and every one of my radio stations, I’m gonna have to reconfigure the Bluetooth to link up to my phone again,” the owner says in the video.
This isn’t the first video that the owner has posted regarding issues with his new C8 Corvette. Several months ago, the owner posted a video of him parked on the side of a highway with an error message saying to close the hood, resulting in a tow to the local dealer, which identified the issue as an actuator for the hood latch.
Follow-up videos include a secondary malfunction that popped the check engine light, while causing the digital gauge cluster, various steering wheel lights, and stereo to stop working.
Clearly frustrated by this latest software glitch with the Cadillac logo, the owner says he owns the “worst Corvette ever built.”
