2014 Corvette Stingrays Recalled for Misaligned Fuel Fill Pipe

Chevrolet issued another recall notice in February pertaining to the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The recall affects certain Corvette Stingrays that may have been built with an out-of-position “anti-siphon” grid within the fuel fill pipe. That grid may move over time and become located from slightly deeper in the fuel fill pipe to totally dislodged from the pipe and move to the bottom of the fuel tank.

Dealers are instructed to replace the fuel tank fill pipe and if necessary, inspect the fuel tank for the dislodged anti-siphon grid.

Corvette Z06/Z07 Tires and Brakes Parts Cost More than a Chevy Cruze

A new 2015 Corvette Z06 armed with the Z07 performance package is one of the most potent track weapons available. The Z07 adds carbon ceramic brake rotors for increased stopping power and those wheels are wrapped in sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires.

Anyone tracking these cars on a regular basis will need replacement parts, especially when it comes to two of racings most consumable items behind fuel: tires and brakes.

A user on Jalopnik’s Opposite Lock shared a quote from a Chevrolet dealer’s parts counter. Shockingly, a set of rotors, new Michelin tires and brake pads cost more than a new 2015 Chevrolet Cruze.
