What Owners Say About Their Corvette

C7 Corvette Has Cracked and Warped Wheels

This is a known problem with the Grand Sport wheels and was never divulged by GM or the dealership. I am looking for compensation from either dealership or GM ... This tire was leaking and the dealer knew it. I have contacted them but received no response. If this continues to be a problem with the other wheels, I'll be forced to spend $3000 on after market wheels. This sucks.

C7 Corvette Has Cracked and Warped Wheels

At 780 miles brought to the dealer because there was vibrating above 35 mph. [The] dealer found that the left rear rim was bent and the right tire was defective. They refused to cover the rim under warranty and charged $300. They did cover the right tire. The car now has 2500 miles on it and I believe there are bent rims again.

C8 Corvette Frunk Problems

While driving the 2020 Corvette at a low speed, the front hood flew open and impaired my visibility ... They failed to engineer the appropriate safety latch features into the hood that would prevent this from happening. Hoods are required to have a secondary latch that must be physically operated to open completely.
