Auto accidents happen too often. And defective car equipment is sometimes to blame.
The latest auto recall we learned about comes from Chevrolet. Vehicles impacted include the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 sport cars.
These vehicles come with sensing diagnostic modules that could enter a fault state if the driver brakes hards or accelerates. This could render the system useless when it comes to deploying air bags in the event of a crash. As such, this would render the safety system faulty.
Without a working safety system, occupants are vulnerable and may suffer major injuries depending on the severity of the collision.
Dealers will have all impacted vehicle owners warned and the sensing diagnostic modules will be reprogrammed. The software should be updated for free.
Consumers who are serious about their safety should not ignore this recall. Have your vehicle repaired as soon as possible.
