General Motors Recalls Corvettes
Southfield (WWJ) -- General Motors is recalling more than 22,000 2005-2007 Corvettes and Corvette Z06 because of a problem with the roofs.
The automaker notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the adhesive between the roof panel and frame of the car may separate and could lead to the roof flying off and hitting another vehicle.
"If there is a partial separation, the driver may notice one or more symptoms, such as a snapping noise when driving over bumps, wind noise, poor roof panel fit, roof panel movement/bounce when a door or hatch is closed, or a water leak in the headliner," GM said in its recall statement.
GM says dealers will install a new design roof panel free of charge beginning in January.
Meantime, GM is also recalling nearly 60,000 2010 Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles because of an issue with the defrosting and defogging system.
GM says the software in the instrument panel can cause the heating, air conditioning, defrost and radio controls, as well as the panel lights, to "become inoperative."
Driving without those functions could lead to an accident.
Dealers will be replacing the computer module in the center panel beginning next month.
Owners may call 1-800-630-2438 for information or contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
