2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Recalled To Replace Rear Shock Absorbers

DETROIT —General Motors is recalling 1,939 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray cars in the U.S. with the FE1 or FE3 suspension to repair a possible insufficient weld in the rear shocks that could lead to a fracture and/or reduce the shocks’ service life, the automaker said on Friday.

Chevrolet dealers will replace the two rear shock absorbers.

GM said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the recall.

Thirty-three additional vehicles were sold in Canada and another 82 were exported.

No information about the recall was posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

But the agency posted a stop delivery order on the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with the FE1 or FE3 suspension. A total of five vehicles are involved in that order.

The affected cars must be held and not delivered to customers, dealer traded or used for demonstration purposes until further instructions are received, the order said.

A date for the recall has not been set. Owners can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.
