Back in January 25th 2007 there was a post telling us how GM was
starting to listen to Corvette owners feedback. The following link was
supplied by another group, not alt.autos.corvette, so we could contact
GM with our thoughts.
I had very little to complain about on the '05 but thought I'd get
their reaction to a little problem, shifter rattle in third gear.
Here's part of what I received in return. -
"We are aware of the shifter rattle issue and we have been working on
it. We have identified the cause and there will be a bulletin and
service parts late March or early April.
Ask your dealership to notify you when news comes out.
It is because of these types of issues that we initiated the owner
feedback on our website. Thanks to people like you, earlier
indentification is possible and we can move faster to keep the
aggrevation level to a minimum. The knob rattle was not a 100%
problem and our driving of the cars is limited. We had to find a way
to detect and analyze and all of this falls under GM's continuous
Thank you for your comments about your corvette. I think the car is a
"home run" and it causes a lot of people a lot of stress when we
disappoint anyone, especially knowing you could have spent your money
on a competitor's car. Please feel free to share this info with your
friends and encourage them to use the feedback option on the web. We
really do read the comments.
What have I hear? Nothing. What did I expect? Just what I got.
For those of you that haven't driven the 6-speed C5/C6 the rattle has
been in some of them since 1997, maybe they just need more time.
