General Motors is recalling 7,071 model year 2020 Chevrolet Corvettes.

Despite visual and audible warnings, the vehicle can be driven with the front trunk lid unlatched.

An unlatched hood can open when the vehicle is driven above a certain speed, obstructing the driver's forward view and increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the software in the vehicle's Body Control Module to limit the vehicle speed to 26 mph when the hood is not completely closed and latched free of charge.

In addition, the operation of the hood release on the key fob will be modified to reduce the likelihood of inadvertent hood release actuations.

Owners also may allow the vehicle to be remedied via an Over-The-Air software update.

The recall is expected to begin October 3, 2020.

Owners may contact GM customer service at (866) 522-9559. GM's number for this recall is N202311160.
