2020 Chevrolet Corvette: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 7,100 model-year 2020 Chevrolet Corvette sports cars

The Problem: Despite visual and audible warnings, the car can be driven with the front trunk lid unlatched, which can open above a certain speed, obstructing the driver’s forward view and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will update the software in the vehicle’s body control module for free to limit the vehicle speed to 26 mph when the hood is not completely closed and latched. Additionally, the operation of the hood release on the key fob will be modified to reduce the likelihood of inadvertent hood release actuations. Owners also may allow the vehicle to be remedied via an over-the-air software update.

What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet manufacturer GM will begin notifying owners Oct. 3. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
