Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,100 model-year 2020 Chevrolet Corvette sports cars
The Problem: The release button located inside the front trunk compartment may not function after the car has been shut off for 10 minutes. If a person climbs inside the front trunk compartment and closes the lid, they may be trapped inside, increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will update the software in the vehicle’s body control module to allow the release switch to always work. Owners also may allow the car to be remedied via an over-the-air software update. Either repair will be done for free.
What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet manufacturer GM will begin notifying owners Sept. 21. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
