GM Recalling Over 20,000 C6 Corvettes Due To Roof Adhesive Issue

News I By Steven J. Ewing I January 01, 2010

Imagine this: You’re driving on the highway behind a gorgeous Chevrolet C6 Corvette, when all of a sudden, the ‘Vette’s roof panel detaches and comes flying through the air, headed right for the front of your car. A scary thought, yes, but this bit of nightmarish imagery could potentially come true.

General Motors is recalling approximately 20,090 Corvettes made in the 2005-06 model years due to a problem with the roof panel. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the adhesive between the roof panel and the frame may separate, allowing for general rattles, wind noise, poor roof panel fit, or even worse, complete detachment. Frightening stuff.

The safety recall will take place sometime in January 2010, and Chevrolet dealers will install a newly designed roof panel for free.
