Chevrolet issues recall for Corvette after discovering steering problem

by Ron Grant

General Motors recalls about 40,028 units of the Chevrolet Corvette because of problems with the telescoping and tilt steering column. Interruption of signal in the steering column could trigger the brake system and may lead to an accident. The Corvette recall will be effective for cars that were built from March 2004 through January 2006.

The car manufacturer found out that repeated movements of the column may cause interruption of the signal within the column. When this occurs, the driver will get a “Service Active Handling System” alert on his information center, and the braking system might trigger one or all of the brakes which may cause the vehicle to swerve to the left or right. If the driver will not be able to react on time, accidents may happen.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, the recall started to be in effect last April 30. Corvette dealers will fix the problem for free. If you own a Corvette that is covered by the recall you can call Chevrolet through 800-630-2438 for more information.
