In recent months, a number of complaints have arisen from those who own or lease a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette or Corvette C. Many of these concerns pertain to hoods that suddenly unlatch, fly open, and block road visibility for the driver, leading to hazardous driving conditions. Although the manufacturer issued a safety recall regarding hoods that may inadvertently open, many affected Chevrolet customers are still voicing their concerns about this vehicle’s safety.
One owner of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette stated that the hood unlatched and flew open on his first drive of the new vehicle. Within fifteen minutes, the front hood latch thumped and unclicked, causing the hood to fly open and obstruct all visibility. The driver was on a curvy, steep road and immediately attempted to steer the car to safety to avoid going off the cliff. Additionally, the impact of the hood caused severe damage to both fenders and multiple hinges. Multiple reports of similar incidents have been reported by concerned drivers across the country; while many of these issues have been resolved through recall repairs, some Chevrolet customers maintain that they still experience safety concerns about their 2020 Chevrolet Corvettes.
