Corvette Recall Announced

If you drive a 2005-2006 Chevrolet Corvette C6, your vehicle may be under a new recall announced by GM.

General Motors issued a recall on 40,028 Corvettes, manufactured between March 2004 and January 2006, which have tilt and telescoping steering wheels.

Apparently, over the years, the signals that travel through the steering wheel may fail to work properly. The malfunction can also affect one side of the vehicle’s brakes, causing the vehicle to be pulled to the right or left during braking.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) official website has posted:
