1998 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 252004

Corvette 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


Upon starting the vehicle steering wheel wouldn't move, and vehicle failed to start when the keys was turned in the ignition. This occurred due to a defect described in the electronic column lock recall 04V060000. But, this vehicle was not included in the recall due to VIN.

Jul 142003

Corvette 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Car when moving in reverse aprox. 5mph had steering wheel lock. Steering would not move but car would move in forward or had rear left wheel rim damaged (scraped) from contact with curb. Followed directions on computer to no avail. Let it set for 24 hr. And everything was back to normal..the car has since done this twice more and been put in storage since Nov.of 2003
