2003 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 112009


  • 34,000 miles


This is an amendment to your ODI number 10297619. Our 2003 Chevrolet Corvette has sustained severe undercarraige damage as well as passenger side body damage and wheel and tire damage. Passenger door will not open and drivers door will open when much strength applied to pull it open. There were a couple of minutes after the crash that it was apparent the doors were not going to open without some kind of assistance. Just prior to the crashwe experienced a small fishing of of the rear of the car at which time the accelerator was disengaged and the brakes applied hard. The steering was locked in the position we were driving in at the time which was on a curve. The brakes failed to stop us, and at this time the RPM was racing upward on the car which was accelerating when no gas was being applied at all. One other time when we had to apply the brakes quickly, for a changing light, the RPM raced way up while we were stopped. Our computer said nothing at this time which indicated to us that there was nothing noted about the incident that we could see. Also airbags failed to open! without our seatbelts, the 37 incident among Corvettes would have been the first casuality in the steering lock failure. Most notably and critical of the failures is the steering lock fiailure no.1, no 2 is brakes failing to stop vehicle and no. 3 is airbags failing to deploy. No 4 is the RPM accelerating when brakes are to the floor. The vehicle is not driveable at this time and is currently in storage until there are resolutions to these failures.
