Chevy Tells 2015 Corvette Owners Not to use the PDR Valet Mode over Legal Concerns

Remember that great video that Chevrolet put out extolling the features of the new Valet Mode with the Performance Data Recorder? Activating the Valet Mode allows you to record front-facing video as well as capture audio from within the car so you can help keep your Corvette safe when it’s in the hands of others.

Well it turns out that recording audio from within the car may be considered a felony in some states that require notice and consent to individuals that they are being recorded and now GM is sending notices out to dealerships and customers alerting them to this fact as well as promising a future update to the PDR system.

Finally made it!

That’s what we have to say after making the pilgrimage this year to Effingham, IL for the 21st Annual Corvette FunFest put on by Mike Yager and the great folks at Mid America Motorworks.

The theme for this year’s FunFest was “Vets with Vettes” and so not only was it great to see all the Corvettes out in the fields but to have the opportunity to talk with our nation’s veterans and see all the patriotic displays including the traveling Vietnam Veteran’s wall memorial was something we’ll never forget.

[VIDEO] Pig Parking C6 Corvette Owner Gets Schooled by Jeep Driver

I really hate seeing Corvettes parked like this, especially when they are right up front near the establishment instead of somewhere safer like the back of the lot. It reflects badly on Corvette owners and taking up two spaces just asks for people to mess with you like this Grand Sport owner found out.

The picture and a video of the Corvette owner’s reaction as he came out to find a Jeep parked on the curb next to him was posted to Reddit r/pics today by AnotherCJMajor who was the owner of the white jeep.
