GM Stops Delivery and Sales of C8
General Motors put out a widespread stop-sales and stop-delivery order to all dealers due to a brake sensor contamination issue. It looks like this recall will be repairable only at the dealer. The recall is caused because of contaminated material between a sensor and the brake boost system.
Cars that get affected by this issue can lose their electronic brake boost assist and may require extra brake pedal force to slow down and come to a stop. Also, if the computer sensors the issue, your speed may get limited as a safety precaution.
When a fix is found, owners with C8’s that are affected will be contacted directly by GM to schedule a fix. There will be no charge and your car will be out of your hands for a day or two for installation, testing, and verification.
There is some good news if the rumors are correct, as people are reporting that only 39-41 C8’s have been produced and delivered with this issue. You can check if your C8 has this issue by entering your VIN by clicking on GM’s site Here and/or NHTSA’s site Here.
The recall number you will be looking for is A202307260. be.

What Mike likes about this Corvette:
“1955 a very significant year indeed. For several reasons, Disneyland opened in Anaheim CA. The first V8 was put into a Corvette and a kid with the name of Mike Vietro (pronounced V8Tro) was born.
Little did he know that Monday evening at 8:47 PM on the 28th of March 1955 his last name would be synonymous with the famous V8 engine Chevy would be known for. Well, that’s not all I like about the 1955 Corvette, that early roadster without roll-up windows, with the wire mesh covered headlight, has always been such a clean design. Smooth, sleek and sexy. This is the early, raw design of a great American Classic. Here we are 65 years later with a very limited number of V8 Corvettes left out of the 700 built. These museum pieces will always be sought after and enjoyed for many more years to come. This is a turn-key cruiser, sorted and judged for your immediate enjoyment. Start the New Year off right, get behind the wheel of this car before its gone. And it will be gone. Happy New Year to all. And a healthy one as well.
Corvette Mike V8tro.”
