Another 2006 Corvette Recall

GM will begin notifying 2006 Corvette owners about an issue with the engine flywheel. The recall covers Corvettes with the VIN Breakpoints of 65115878 – 65121102 where the engine and manual transmission may have a condition in which the flywheel may have been incorrectly machined, resulting in insufficient clearance for clutch cover self adjustment, reducing clutch life.
