2004 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #2

Corvette 8-cyl

  • miles


Vehicle cut off while driving @ approximately 25 mph. Dash indicator read "check gauges". I was able to pull to the side of the road and found that the fuel pump fuse had failed. Tried another fuse, but it blew immediately. Vehicle was towed to local Chevrolet dealer who has diagnosed problem as both fuel pumps have shorts causing the fuel pump fuse to blow. This is a very dangerous situation and needs to be investigated. It should be noted that after a day of sitting at the dealership, the fuel pump fuse was replaced and the vehicle then started enabling the dealer to diagnose the problem. Chevrolet zone rep was contacted, but refused to help. There is obviously an issue with the fuel pumps as the replacement fuel pumps from Chevrolet have been redesigned. It should be noted that vehicle has only 18,316 miles.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,341 miles
I have a brand new 2004 Corvette 1 1/2 months old with only 1341 miles on it. While driving home in rush hour dallas traffic on a very busy fast moving road, my engine died in the middle of the road. I could not restart the car & was in a very serious situation risking the possibility of being rear ended. Luckily a policeman came by and parked behind me to shield me from the traffic. If I had been on the freeway, I could have been killed. The GM dealer where I purchased the car (ray huffines Chevrolet of plano) is acting like it is no big deal. They said it is the fuel pump & they will replace it when they can get a fuel pump and if it happens again, to bring it back. If it happens again & I would be on the freeway, I more than likely would not be alive to take the car back in. I drive 50+ miles a day to & from work mostly freeway driving. I feel the dealership is trying to put my life in jeopardy. I want my money back and out of this car. In researching, I have found that 127,000 2004 Corvettes have been recalled for steering problems. I was never advised of this when I purchased this car or of any fuel pump issues. I have purchased a brand new car every 3 years for the last 20 years & I have never had a problem like this, especially with a brand new $50,000 car and I have owned 280zx, 300zx, RX7, supra, and Lexus. I need help from GM or someone to resolve this.
