April 17, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A lawsuit was filed against General Motors, stating that the wheels of the 2015–2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Corvette Grand Sport are subject to “bends and cracks”.

A lawsuit filed by Kehoe Law Firm, PC in the U.S. District Court in California’s Northern District of California states that the wheels used in the Z06 and Grand Sport used cheaper cast materials rather than forged ones, and that General Motors also used less materials. than you need to try to maintain unsprung weight in two Corvette models.

The lawsuit also says that despite the fact that the cars in question are sold with a 3-year warranty of 36,000 miles, GM “systematically refuses support” to customers who brought their cars to official dealerships with cracked wheels. A crack in the wheel not only means that the entire wheel needs to be replaced, but can also lead to punctures and tire outbreaks.

Corvette Blogger reports that this is far from the first time when problems with wheels appeared on the C7 Z06 and Grand Sport. There have been numerous reports of wheel cracks from Corvette owners in various forums.

This is not even the first lawsuit on this issue. In May 2019, a man named Anthony Nardizzi filed a lawsuit against General Motors, claiming that the two wheels of his rented Corvette 2018 were bent and that he had to pay $ 7,500 for new ones, as Chevrolet refused to replace them and instead only compensated him $ 1,200 .
