2014 Stingray Recall

On Friday, GM issued a recall notice for four vehicles, one of which was the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Specifically, the potential issue has to do with the rear-shock absorbers in Stingrays with the FE1 or FE3 suspensions.

GM says the recall notice affect 1,939 Corvettes total in the US, plus 33 in Canada. Another 82 Corvettes with the issue have been exports.

Here’s the notice issued Friday:

Dealers will replace the two rear shock absorbers in 1,939 2014 model year Chevrolet Corvettes in the U.S. with the FE1 or FE3 suspension to repair a possible insufficient weld in the rear shocks that could lead to a fracture and/or reduce the shocks’ service life. Thirty-three additional vehicles were sold in Canada and another 82 were exported. GM is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue..

All Corvettes Stingrays have either the FE1 or FE3 suspensions. The FE1 RPO code is for the base Stingrays while Corvettes with the Z51 Performance Package have the FE3 suspension. Based on the number of Corvettes being recalled, we assume the issue begins and ends during a certain range of VINs.

This is the third recall for Corvette Stingrays in June and the cumulative total is now at 2,799 Corvettes.

At the beginning of June, GM recalled 33 Stingrays for a short circuit in the sensing and diagnostic module that could disable front air bags, safety belt pretensioners and the Automatic Occupancy Sensing module. Two weeks ago, 712 Corvette Stingrays were recalled due to issues with the passenger side airbags in the Competition Sports Seats.

Owners with Corvettes that are caught up in these recalls will receive a letter from General Motors letting them know when they can bring in their vehicles into a dealership for the free repairs.

Corvette takes P and GTLM wins - Michelin Alley

You can now rename Watkins Glen as “Corvetteville” – the GM brand was the car to have in both Prototype and GTLM competition at the latest round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship today.

While Richard Westbrook used the straight line speed advantage of the Corvette Daytona Prototypes to pass the Le Mans-style P2 car of Alex Brundle on the penultimate restart to take the win, Antonio Garcia pushed Corvette Racing to its third consecutive victory in GTLM with Danish ace Jan Magnussen.

winner_watkinsglen_PThe late race yellow with 25 minutes remaining changed the face of the race. Alex Brundle’s Oak Racing Morgan-Nissan had the pace of the field but needed a yellow to stretch his fuel mileage to the finish.

The yellow (caused by contact between Alex Tagliani’s PC car and the GTD Porsche of Ian James) was a double edged sword for Brundle. He needed the yellow for fuel mileage, the but the restart allowed the lapped Frisselle brothers DP to get past him into turn one and then race winner Richard Westbrook (teamed with Michael Valiante) powered by on the run to the bus stop.

Despite being quicker on the pack half the circuit, Brundle (teamed with Gustavo Yacaman and Ho-Pin Tung) was unable to get back past even in the final lap dash which was created by another late race yellow-causing crash between Renger van der Zande and Scott Pruett.

jan_watkinsglen_GTLMFor Garcia, the yellow saved their race as the Spaniard was saving fuel over the last stint with both Dodge Vipers coming strong at the finish.

The win by Garcia and Magnussen (pictured right) pushed them into the championship lead. The duo also became the first pairing to score three consecutive class wins in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

Dominic Farnbacher and Marc Goosens celebrated the debut the retro red and white Viper livery with second place ahead of their teammates Jonathan Bomarito and Kuno Witttmer

Other class wins went to CORE autosport (Jon Bennett, Colin Braun and James Gue) in PC and Turner Motorsport in GTD (Dane Cameron and Marcus Palttala.

Tadge Juechter Named Automobile Magazine's Man of Year

Automobile Magazine's January 2014 issue names Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief Engineer, Man of the Year. The publication praises Tadge as not only the most eloquent engineer they've met, but also "the one who got it right."

"Corvette critics can be harsh, and those complaints are rarely unfounded. Some will contend that Chevy's engineers should not be applauded for simply fixing all the stuff that was wrong in previous versions. But Juechter's team did far more than finally bolt in decent seats..." - Automobile Magazine article

In addition to Tadge's accolade, the 2014 Corvette Stingray was named Automobile Magazine's 2014 Automobile of the Year. CLICK HERE for FULL STORY

Camaro Gives a Nod to CORVETTE As Announcement of the 2014 Camaro Is Made.

The racing-proven LS7 7.0L V-8 powers the all-new 2014 Camaro Z/28 – the most track-focused production model in the car’s history. It’s matched with a TREMEC TR6060 six-speed manual transmission with unique gearing tailored to the LS7’s performance characteristics for optimal track performance.

The Z/28 engine is adapted from the LS7 used in the C6 Corvette Z06, which was developed in conjunction with Corvette Racing. It is rated at an estimated 500 horsepower (373 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. of torque (637 Nm) in the new Camaro Z/28, with a maximum engine speed of 7,100 rpm – a broad rpm range that contributes to higher power and allows the driver to hold gears longer between shifts on the track. That helps keep the engine at peak power for quicker lap time.

“The LS7 lives on in the all-new Z/28, extending a performance legacy while delivering great power density in a lightweight package to give this exciting new Camaro a great feeling of control and balance,” said John Rydzewski, assistant chief engineer for small-block engines. “It introduced exotic materials and racing-influenced solutions that keep it at the forefront of high-performance technology.”

The LS7 is the most powerful naturally aspirated production engine ever from General Motors and, upon its launch in late 2005, was the first GM engine to receive SAE-certified power ratings. For more information on this GREAT NEW CAMARO... CLICK HERE
