GM recalls Corvettes; roof might fly off

General Motors said this week it is recalling 22,000 Chevrolet Corvettes, which are built in Bowling Green, over concerns that the roof might fly off the vehicles.

The new recall applies to 2005-07 model year Corvettes and Corvette Z06 models. A 2006 recall didn't fix the problem.

GM told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the adhesive between the roof panel and frame might separate. GM will install a redesigned roof panel as a result.

"If there is a partial separation, the driver may notice one or more symptoms, such as a snapping noise when driving over bumps, wind noise, poor roof-panel fit, roof-panel movement/bounce when a door or hatch is closed, or a water leak," GM said.

GM spokesman Alan Adler said there have been no reports of injuries.
