GM Recalls 2015 Corvette For Parking Brake Problems

General Motors has already recalled some 2015 Chevrolet Corvettes to check the efficiency and effectiveness of their parking brakes.

In one recall of 784 units, made in Kentucky from 20 August, 2014, to 4 September, 2014, cars may have only one of two the rear parking brake cables fully seated and engaged, resulting in the parking brake only operating on one of the rear park brake drums.

Without the parking brake working on both rear wheels, the vehicle may roll away if parked on a steep gradient and, as such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard #135, ‘Light Vehicle Brake Systems’.

Owners of affected Corvette models haven’t been notified yet, but they’re advised to contact Chevrolet Customer Service at 800-222-1020, to call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236, or to head to Dealerships will also be able to assist in determining which, if any, of the recalls apply to your vehicle.
