Corvette Coupes Recalled For Faulty Rear Hinges

Posted on October 7, 2011

General Motors Co has issued a recall of their Chevrolet Corvette Coupes due to a potential compliance failure with federal safety standards, according to recent news reports.

The concern is with the rear hinges of about 6,000 Chevrolet Corvette Coupes. The current situation could allow the rear hatch to disengage from the rest of the car in the event of a crash, according to General Motors.

The model years subject to the recall are the 2011 to 2012 vehicles. Most of them were sold in the United States, and some were sold in Canada.

General Motors Co has reported that the issue was discovered during testing. No complaints have been made by customers thus far, and no injuries or crashes have been reported in relation to the cause of this recall.

General Motors will notify owners and will arrange for dealers to make a replacement at no cost to the consumer.
