A lawsuit is filed on the Chevy Corvette C7 coupeMay 10, 2019
The rims used to equip the Chevy Corvette sports coupe in Grand Sport and Z06 versions seem prone to bending and even cracking. The American brand, in turn, tries to maximally “disown” the problem.
The owners of the Chevy Corvette of the current generation, which is known by the intra-factory index C7, in the Grand Sport and Z06 versions, may face the problem of defective rims. Some authoritative sources report that some of them may be prone to kinks and kinks.
According to the data published this week by the foreign edition of CarComplaints, the proposed class action against Chevy and in particular their Corvette coupe was filed by someone who purchased the 2018 Corvette from an authorized dealer in California (USA).
He found that the two wheels were bent. After he got a sports car, he immediately took him to a company called CalChrome, so that the guys would thoroughly check the rims for a malfunction.
Needless to say, the plaintiff contacted a Chevy dealer from whom he purchased a car to demand the replacement of two faulty wheels under warranty. However, the dealer reportedly refused to do anything, accusing the owner of the Corvette of deliberately deforming the discs, arguing that it was his way of driving the car that caused the wheels to bend. After the company complained several times to the American concern GM, which includes the Chevy brand, the latter agreed to pay the owner 1,200 dollars. And this, in spite of that, but the owner of the “problem” car paid $ 7,500 for replacing two wheels, which, frankly, seems like a very large amount.
Many Corvette owners have filed a complaint with the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, claiming that they have equipped Grand Sport versions with defective wheels from the 2017 model year and from Z06 from 2015 to the present.
