General Motors is facing a second legal challenge for problems related to warped and cracked wheels in the C7 Corvette. As reported by the Detroit Free Press, the consolidated class-action lawsuit was brought by eightteen 2015-2019 C7 Corvette owners, specifically the Z06 and Grand Sport trims.

The plaintiffs are seeking millions of dollars in reimbursements for costs related to replacing wheels that are prone to deforming and cracking without impact damage because GM opted for a cast aluminum rather that a forged wheel.

TO date, GM's only response to the problem is that there are no safety related recalls for the 7th generation Corvette and keeps telling drivers to avoid bumps in the road.
