2011-2012 Chevrolet Corvette Recalled

The 2011 and 2012 Chevrolet Corvette is being recalled due to an issue with the rear hatch. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there's a risk that due to a potential design flaw, the rear hatch could separate from the car.

The hatch's rear hinges may not meet the load requirements that are specified in federal safety standards. In the case of a crash and the hinges fail, the rear hatch could detach and increase the risk of injury.

This recall notice affects hard-top models that were built between January 24, 2011 and September 1, 2011. In total, there are 5,755 of these models in the U.S. If you own one of these models, you can take it to a Chevrolet dealer that will replace the hinges free of charge.

For more information, you can contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 (the campaign uses the 11V491000 number) or Chevrolet, at 1-800-630-2438, or go online to www.safercar.gov.
