GM has issued a stop-sale order on about 2,800 new Chevrolet Corvettes, a spokesman for the automaker told The Detroit News.
GM spokesman Alan Adler told the newspaper that the Detroit automaker has instructed dealers to halt delivery on about 2,000 2015 Corvettes to repair a problem with the driver-side airbag, and has temporarily stopped shipments of the high-performance sports cars from its Bowling Green, Ky., assembly plant.
Another 800 Corvettes, most still at dealerships, were also placed on hold because they may have been built with only one of the rear parking brake cables fully seated and engaged. The part must be inspected to ensure the brake is operating on both brake drums, Adler told the newspaper. Adler said very few of the 2,800 were already in customer possession, and would not say whether the stop-sale would be followed by a recall.
