When the vehicle be in 1st gear, it makes a weird noise, I took it to the dealership, they replaced a screw on the rear end but it did no solve the problem. The car only has 16000 miles on it now. I called the car manufacture she said it wasnt nothing they can do. Im afraid the rear end might fall off.

Corvette 8-cyl

I own a 2006 Corvette and while driving on highway 270 in germantown, md the right front wheel of the car locked up for no reason. I was not braking turning or changing speed. I was cruising at a constant 60 mph when it all of a sudden locked up the front right wheel. It caused the car to run off the road into the shoulder! I was very lucky to be exactly where I was at the time or someone may have been killed! I looked into GM recall info and found there has been 3 different fixes for this problem. I also found that 2 of the 3 fixes have been done to this car by the previous owner and neither fix has worked. I am bringing the car into the dealer tomorrow after some quick research I found this problem to be very common to the 2005-2008 Corvettes. I can't believe GM has done nothing about this!

I was driving down the road and hit a small pot hole. The alloy rim of my new C6 Corvette split in half around the circumference causing partial loss of control in traffic. Speed was approximately 40 to 50 mph. It appears the wheel induction welding is flawed. I fear other wheels have the same flaw. At speed, this could be the cause of a fatal accident. I am a mechanical engineer and it appears flawed to me. I have the wheel in my position and I have pictures I can email.
