Recall Alert: 2011-2012 Chevrolet Corvette

By Colin Bird  on October 11, 2011 Chevrolet is recalling 5,755 Corvettes from the 2010 and 2011 model years because the rear hatch may not meet safety standards, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, the rear hatch hinges may not be in compliance with the federal government’s load requirements. As a result, the rear hatch could separate in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. This affects 4,064 2011 Corvette coupes built between Jan. 24 and June 16 and 1,691 2012 Corvette coupes built between Feb. 22 and Sept. 1.

The recall is already underway. GM says affected owners should have or should expect a notification letter soon. Dealers will replace both rear hatch hinges free of charge. Owners can call Chevy at 800-630-2438 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
