GM Recalls 2005-2007 Corvettes for Roof Adhesive Issue
January 4, 2010

General Motors (GM) has issued a recall for several Chevrolet Corvettes citing a problem with the adhesive used to attach the roof panels to the vehicles' frames. The specific vehicles involved are 2005-2007 Corvettes with a removal roof and the 2006-2007 Corvette Z06.

According to the manufacturer's notification, made via the National Transportation Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA), the adhesive between the roof panel and frame could separate on these vehicles.

"If there is a partial separation, the driver may notice one or more symptoms, such as a snapping noise when driving over bumps, wind noise, poor roof panel fit, roof panel movements/bounce when a door or hatch is closed, or a water leak in the headliner," reads the NHTSA notice.

However, GM warns that a complete separation might also appear, causing the roof panel to detach completely from the vehicle.

Dealers will install a new design roof panel free of charge for owners of these vehicles, who are expected to be notified this month. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 800/630-2438 or at www.gmownercenter.com.
