You have to commend General Motors for taking responsibility this time and replacing the wheels free of charge, but this won’t improve the C8 Corvette’s reputation when it comes to quality control. Last year, videos emerged online showing the frunk on some C8 Corvettes flying open, blocking the driver’s visibility. In a separate issue, the frunk lid release button was prone to failing after the car was shut down.
Teething issues are common for brand new models, but let’s hope General Motors has learned from these issues and can improve the quality control for future C8 Corvette iterations. Orders for the 2021 Corvette Stingray have been stopped due to high demand, but the order books for the 2022 model will open in early July.
