Recalls: Chevrolet issues a stop-sale for 2015 Corvettes amid two recalls

Two recalls were recently issued for the 2015 model year Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, incurring a stop-sale for America’s premiere sports car.

The recalls include problems with the car’s airbags and parking brake cables, affecting around 2,800 units. However, according to a spokesman, only a few affected cars have been sold.

Of those 2,800 models, 2,000 are plagued by the airbag issue, with many of them still sitting at the storage lots of the Corvette’s Bowling Green assembly plant in Kentucky. The issue involves a risk of the driver’s side airbag detaching from the steering wheel in the even of an accident, increasing the risk of more significant injuries. All affected cars are to be fixed.

The remaining 800 cars suffer from improperly manufactured rear parking brake cables, which were not seated properly when engaged, leading to impaired use.

These recalls already add to the significant total of 67 recalls this year for GM vehicles.
