GM has slammed the breaks on Corvette sales, telling dealers to hold onto their inventory. If you go out looking to buy one this weekend, the dealer is supposed to tell you no, sorry, can’t have one. The Wall Street Journal quotes GM spokesman Alan Adler as saying the sales halt is “an effort to deal with quality issues quickly and completely.” The Corvettes currently on the lots–and those that have yet to leave the Bowling Green, Kentucky factory–may have a problem with their air bags, their parking brake, or both.
The 2015 Corvette has been a gem for GM, moving as briskly off the dealers’ lots as it moves from 0-60. (Well, not quite–that’d be 3.8 seconds.) But sales are up 200-plus percent over last year for the iconic American sports car. Even if you have your starter $60,000 ready though, you’ll have to wait while GM does some checking on things.
