General Motors is recalling more than 22,000 Chevrolet Corvettes that have removable roofs. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration believes that the 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvettes and the 2006-2007 Corvette Z06’s with removable roofs have an adhesive between the roof panel and frame that can separate, which can cause noise, poor fit and water leakage. In the worse case scenario, if the adhesive completely separates, the roof panel could come off causing a potentially dangerous condition for the driver and occupant of the vehicle.
The recall begins in January 2010, and dealers will install a new roof panel free of charge for the affected cars.
