Early this morning, General Motors announced five separate recalls, affecting roughly 2.7 million Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Pontiac, and Saturn vehicles from the 2004 to 2015 model years. One of the recalls is so serious that GM has asked owners to stop driving the vehicles immediately.
RECALL #2: 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette
This recall of 111,889 U.S. vehicles is meant to fix a serious problem with the low-beam headlights. GM says that “When the engine is warm, the underhood electrical center housing could expand, causing the headlamp low-beam relay control circuit wire to bend slightly.” Over time, the circuit wire can break, disabling the low-beam headlights.
This problem appears to affect Corvettes from the 2008-2013 model years, too, though GM says that those vehicles will be repaired via a Customer Satisfaction Program, rather than a full-fledged recall. As with recall #1, GM hasn’t specified how it will fix the problem.
