  • Some 2017 Corvettes Recalled Over Steering Failure

    Have a 2017 Corvette, thanks to CorvetteBlogger, you ought to know about this recall for some Corvettes (though the majority of those being recalled are Camaros — with a sprinkling of Cadillacs too).

    [RECALL] 2017 Corvette Among Several GM Models Being Recalled for Potential Power Steering Issue

    Four General Motors models – including Corvette – are being recalled because of potential electric power steering failures.

    Included in the recall are about 27,000 vehicles, including the 2017 Corvette, 2017 Chevrolet Camaro, 2017 Cadillac ATS, and 2016-18 Cadillac CTS.

    GM discovered the problem after opening an investigation last September into sudden power steering losses in 2017 Camaros based on information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    The failures may occur while driving, making it difficult to turn the steering wheel. That could make it especially dangerous at slow speeds or around curves.

    GM engineers determined that in about 80 percent of the cases involving Camaros, intermittent electrical problems occurred in the torque sensor printed circuit boards of the power steering gear assemblies. Further investigation discovered the same problems in two Corvette steering gear assemblies, and GM also found the same circuit boards being used in the two Cadillac models.

    GM also noticed a spike in warranty repairs that were traced back to manufacturing errors made by Bosch, which supplied the power steering assemblies.

    The failure will apparently last the whole time the car is being driven, but the steering sometimes returns once the vehicle is turned off and restarted.

    Drivers are alerted to the failure by the difficult steering, obviously, as well as an instrument panel message and the sounding of a chime.

    GM dealers will replace the power steering gear assemblies starting this month. For more information, call 800-222-1020 and ask about recall number N182182760.

    I was made aware of the problem a while back but told that there was no fix. So I guess now they’re going to fix them. Thanks for sharing John.

      Further we learned that 6,529, 2017 Corvettes are subject to that recall. Hope it is not yours, but as least there is now a fix.

        6529 is no small number when you consider the production for 2017 was 32,782 units.

          Got the fix for my 2017 yesterday. It took a relative long time to get all the parts. Lets hope it is fine. This is the first recall I have received on 3 C7s I have owned. Something changed. Charlie aka cutnout

            Three weeks is a long time when it is “Corvette driving time.” Sorry about that Charlie. We too hope you are back on the road perfectly!

              I am ready to go to Jackson Ms for an indoor show. Indoor with air conditioning is the greatest in summer. Charlie

                I was notified of the power steering recall a couple for my 2017, the parts came in this week. After 42,000 miles of trouble free driving I had new tires installed at the same time they replaced the power steering pump and recalibrated the power assist under the recall. Like driving a new car again!

                  That is great news Don. Enjoy your car again, especially with its brand new tires.

                    Power steering pump? Vettes have electric power steering no?

                      Yes, I heard a presentation by Jim Mero of the extensive calibration effort he personally did over a month to establish the final electric assist software settings for the steering system.

                      Might their be a secondary pump or might the service adviser improperly communicated about a steering pump?
