In the United States, the scandal surrounding a defect in the previous seventh generation Chevrolet Corvette is gaining momentum. Wheels are destroyed on cars, and dealers and the manufacturer do not recognize cases as warranties. There are already examples of court cases won, writes Detroit Free Press.
- The defect appears only on Corvettes of the top versions Z06 and Grand Sport. On them, alloy wheels often bend and crack at low runs. Sometimes - not having served and for 30,000 kilometers. Replacement of one wheel costs 750-1000 dollars (58-77 thousand rubles). Not wanting to shell out that kind of money, the owners turn to dealers.
- Factory officials refuse to provide a warranty replacement. There are two arguments: the owner's driving style and normal wear and tear. However, the precedents that have led to a public outcry come from calm drivers who bought the Corvette not for "annealing", but as a dream car. The publication writes about several American retirees at once, for whom the supercar destroyed the idea of \ u200b \ u200bthe dream.
Human rights activists argue that GM should change the wheels under warranty free of charge. Moreover, cracks and dents compromise the integrity of the disc, impair the behavior of the machine and run the risk of a sudden loss of pressure on the move. This is already a serious malfunction with a significant impact on safety. Therefore, lawyers believe, it is necessary to announce a recall campaign.
- The manufacturer denies his fault and constructive errors. He goes on to insist that the nature of defects is sloppy driving. However, GM has lost several lawsuits, and the chances of customers getting their way are growing. The malfunction can cost the company tens of millions of dollars.
- Chevrolet Corvette C7 was produced in 2014-2019. The Z06 and Grand Sport versions have their own 19-inch front and 20-inch rear rims.
