I was at the dealer ship two weeks ago when some freinds asked me to
come out to the shop of the dealership where my truck was being worked on.
There I saw not one but three corvettes missing the skin on the roof it
had blown off while driving down the road.
If you own an 06 and you hear a roof rattle get it to the dealership at
once do not wait.
Even if you dont hear a rattle get it checked out
Not all C6's were affected ; i took my 2006 in and they ran the VIN.
Mine was not included in the recall. But i agree...better to take it in
and find out for sure ; if it blows off and seriously hurts the person
driving behind you...you will be responsible.
Wow, one dealership with 3 failures, must be some awful poor workmanship
someplace. Care to give the name of the dealership? Recall for painted roofs
started in February for the '05 and '06 and I've seen none that came off, just
leaks. I'm sure that information would be helpful for GM to know that they were
blowing off in that quantity. At that time 4 had come loose from the vehicle and
you saw 3 of them at one time. There has been 11 come off to date and the number
that did so while in motion is not available as far as I know.
Keep us posted, you've been a big help.
They are very aware of this matter all that was left was the inner roof
The issue is bigger then they are letting on.
It is just like the vortec engines that were sizing up from a leaking
CPI the gas ran into the pan washed the barring clean thined out the oil
and blew the motor durring operation.
The light truck division knew about this and never did any thing about
it no recall not any thing.
They could not ignore the corvette problem.
So, Mr. snipped-for-privacy@Classiccarmall.net
Does it have a name?
Would you mind if we call them and verify your claims?
Get a grip.
'Key was right.
Once a SPAMMER, always a TROLL.
Your a real dumb #@*, you probably work with chevy and are tring to
cover this up as well.
why dont you call some dealerships and ask them about it they have to
tell you, tell them you have an 06 and heard about the recall
They have to disclose the recall to you, one hit the news as well in
texas as the three I mentioned happened on the streets texas two nearly
resulted in accicdents.
I dont know why you would want to cheat corvette owners out of the
information of such a fact unless you have a vested interest.
To bad this offeneds you, please attempt to say this post is not true.
message you probably work with chevy and are tring to cover this
Not true, just hearsay. Your Chicken Little method doesn't work as GM does
notify those owners that may be affected. Name calling doesn't make your
position any better just the name of the dealer would have done that. To cover
up that unbelievable information you back it up with more, that 2 "almost"
caused an accidents. Then to make your story believable you want us to lie to a
dealer to do what? Get information we already know?
The vested interest is truth, now what was that dealers name where they had 3 of
them sitting there with the roof gone?
I got my roof recall notice on my 2005 C6 last week and took her in to
get inspected yesterday. I did not have a problem with my roof but took
it in as a precaution. Appointement was at 8:30 am and at 11:30 am
they called me to pick it up. When I got there it look like they did
nothing. Work order said they added glue but I couldn't tell.
I have a 2006 coupe purchased in Oct 2005 that is outside the VIN range.
Just this past Friday, my roof panel almost blew off while riding down
the road. I was only doing about 40 mph and was able to grab it with my
hand until I got off the road and pulled the roof off.
I live in San Diego, and we have been having unseasonably hot weather
for the last few weeks, so I'm wondering if this extra temp cycling
might have accelerated the problem and be revealing more failures. The
roof had been creaking for about a week, so I guess I did have some warning.
I took it into the dealership Saturday, and they said it was the worst
one they had seen yet. They would not attempt the in shop repair given
the amount of separation. They agreed to get another one on order,
since despite being outside the VIN range this problem is, of course,
covered under warranty. The sad part is that it may take up to 2 weeks
to get a replacement. I don't want to take the roof on/off each time I
use the car, so for now I'm left with using tiedowns to hold the thing
together. Looks ugly, but seems to hold together ok at least for <60mph
around town driving. Maybe the best I can do until mine arrives.
It would be really great customer service if Chevy dealerships would
consider stocking a 'loaner' top while they get yours on order, paint
it, etc. Who cares if the color does not match for 2 weeks? Two weeks
(if it is that short) is mighty long to wait if this is your daily
