GM Recalling 2014 Corvette Stingrays with Competition Seats for Airbag Issue

General Motors issued another round recalls and this one impacts owners of the 2014 Corvette Stingray with Competition seats. At issue is the passenger seat airbag and GM is warning that an unbelted child and door trim may block the deployment of the seat airbags in an accident.

The recall affects a total of 712 2014 Corvette Stingrays with the optional competition sport seats.

Owners of recalled 2014 Corvette Stingrays will receive a formal notice from General Motors in the mail before taking action. Until then, the automaker advises customers to not allow small children in the passenger seat until the airbag has been replaced with a redesigned version.

GM says that they are unaware of any crashes or injuries related to the passenger airbag on the competition seats.

Here was the notice that was included in another round of massive recalls facing General Motors:

712 model year 2014 Chevrolet Corvettes with optional Competition Sport Seats, because an unbelted child and door trim may block the passenger seat side air bag vent in a deployment. Dealers will replace the current air bag with a redesigned version. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to this condition, but advises customers to not allow small children in the front seat until the vehicle is serviced.
