GM has issued a recall for 40, 028 Corvette vehicles from the 2005 and 2006 model years, according to the NHTSA.
The affected Corvettes are equipped with a tilt and telescoping steering column which may pinch wiring inside the column, resulting in communications disruptions.
If the signal is interrupted, the car may display a warning to “service the active handling system,” and possibly engage one or more of the brakes on either side, causing the car to pull to the left or right. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the sudden change in movement could lead to a collision, and has three crashes on record attributed to the issue.
You can find a car’s build date listed on a sticker applied to the driver’s door or doorjamb.
Owners may contact Chevrolet at 800-630-2438 or GMC at 866-996-9463. They may also contact NHTSA’s vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.
