General Motors has done a pretty decent job of getting themselves out of the black hole they were in, and the popularity of the upcoming 2014 Corvette Stingray will play an even greater part in their resurgence later this year. However, there could be a little blip if the U.S. safety regulators find anything untoward with the 2005-2007 Corvette.
It seems that we could be looking at 100,000 Corvette 2005-2007 recalls in 2013 if the investigation involving recent complaints towards these vehicles hold up. According to The Detroit News there have been complaints that the headlights could suddenly stop working.
There have been 30 complaints in regards to the 2005 to 2007 Corvettes, where they have been driving along and all of a sudden they lost their low beam, and as you would expect is a serious safety issue. There was already one report where one owner was driving at night and his headlights went out and as he pulled to the side of the road, he almost hit a discarded tire.
That’s not the only incident, as other drivers have said that their fuse boxes would often get very hot, which is a reason why these lights go out in the first place. Not all 2005-2007 Corvette owners are affected by this intermittent issue, but the U.S. safety regulators will get down to the issue.
We will keep you up-to-date just in case the NHTSA issues a 2005-2007 Corvette recall.
