Late last week we learned that a Stop Sale Order had been issued for a number for GM vehicles including the 2020 Corvette Stingray, and that a recall for those affected vehicles would be issued. GM sent a list of VINs to its dealers and from that, we learned that the total number of Corvettes affected by the recall is a relatively small group consisting of 38 cars (although some sites are reporting 39 C8s).
According to a Stop Sale Order sent to dealers, the issue stems from contamination in the electronic brake books system sensor which can cause a communication breakdown between the sensor and brake booster.
Our friends at the C8 Corvette Owners Facebook Page tells us that the VIN range of cars identified with this brake sensor issue are all under 3,000. So even though there is a Stop Sale Order in place, it’s basically moot for the Corvettes on the list as they have already been delivered to their owners.
Other GM models affected by the Brake Sensor contamination issue include the 2020-2021 Buick Encore GX, 2020 Cadillac CT4, CT5, XT4, and 2021 model year Chevrolet Trailblazer.
Affected customers will be notified directly by General Motors. Owners can check their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for recalls and other action in the GM Owner Center at https://my.gm.com/recalls or via NHTSA’s website at https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/.
