GM has issued a recall for 22,090 Chevrolet Corvettes from the 2005-07 model years and Corvette Z06s from the 2005-06 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The recall affects vehicles equipped with a removable roof; the adhesive between the roof panel and the frame may partially separate causing snapping noise, wind noise, a roof panel movement or leaking in the headliner. It’s possible that the roof panel could detach from the vehicle entirely. If the Corvette is in motion, the panel could strike a vehicle following behind it and cause an accident.
Dealers will install a newly designed roof panel for free. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 800-630-2438 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236.
