According to non-profit consumer organization Consumer Reports, the 2022 Chevy Corvette was given a reliability score of 13 out of 100. The lower the number, the less reliable a vehicle is.

The Consumer Reports list is based on a “deep dive into the numerous things that can go wrong with a vehicle,” with the organization identifying 17 specific “trouble areas.” These range from smaller issues, like broken trim bits, to bigger issues, like drivetrain repairs. Each problem is weighted by the severity of the problem, with studied vehicles requiring at least two model years of data to calculate the predicted reliability score.
