Today Chevrolet announced a Customer Satisfaction Program on selected 2009 Corvette ZR1. A Customer Satisfaction Program is not a full fledged recall, but more so a program to alert customers of a possible issue. Here are the details:
Certain 2009 model year Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 vehicles may have a condition in which the clutch damper spring may fracture. If this were to occur, the driver may or may not notice gear rattle and/or the transmission may be hard to shift. If the vehicle is driven with a fractured clutch damper spring, it could result in damage to the transmission.
The VIN breakpoints (last 8 digits) that are included in this program are: 95800667 through 95801069. Not all vehicles within these breakpoints may be involved, your GM dealership will check their computer system to see if your vehicle is involved.
Your GM dealership will replace the clutch assembly FREE of charge. Additionally, courtesy transportation is available for those customers involved. Letters will be sent to known owners of record located within areas covered by the US National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
If you have any questions, you can always call us at CorvetteBlog direct at (888) 875-0728.
