Without a doubt, it seems that problems for General Motors are not close to an end. The famous car maker has just announced to stop the sales of Chevrolet Corvette cars. Analysts claim that this decision will most likely be followed by a recall of these vehicles.
Problems are never ending for GM, which recalled a record number of cars this year. Naturally, most of the recalls announced by the famous company were linked to the ignition switches problem, but other separate recalls were announced by GM, as well. Now, a recall of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray looks imminent, after GM issued a stop-sale.
The stop sale order was sent by General Motors during this week. The announcement made by GM included airbag and parking brake cable problems. It seems that there is an issue with the driver’s side airbag in the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette vehicles. GM claimed that it separates from the steering wheels during a crash and can easily lead to serious injury.
Naturally, this is an important safety issue, so there is no wonder that GM is expected to announce a recall soon. A number of 2000 vehicles might be having the faulty airbags issue. The cars are currently inspected for the faulty part that might cause the malfunction.
GM has stopped production and shipments of the Chevrolet Corvette from its Bowling Green KY plant. This is where the cars have been assembled for no less than 30 years. About 800 Corvettes are being held back at dealerships, as they may have some defective parking break cables.
Rumors indicate that General Motors has in its plans two recalls related to these vehicles. Still, until this point, GM made no official statements linked to the situation of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette and the way it plans on conducting the needed repairs.
In some separate cases, General Motors is recalling no less than 270,000 cars, linked to various mechanical issues. In the recall there are included 200,000 Saturn VUEs built between 2002 and 2004. It has been claimed that these cars might have faulty ignition switches.
