Default Early 2019 ZR1 recall

Hi All,

Just in case those of you lucky guys + gals got an early ZR1 built between 12/8/17 - 5/31/19, there was an SDM airbag recall:

https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/c...airbag-recall/

Having seen some photos of wrecked ZR1s on this forum, I hate to see anyone get hurt or worse because their ZR1 didn't get fixed under the recall.

Apologize in advance if this was already posted (I don't recall seeing it)...

Appreciate all the great advice posted on this forum + enjoy this beast!

#2372 seems to not be impacted by this recall according and its Bday was 5/2/2019.

If you go to the link posted, the story line has a June 2018 date and states "The recall affects every Corvette ZR1 built between Dec. 8, 2017, and May 31 of this year -- that's a total of 498 cars." A total of 498 would be 2018, so apparently old news from last year. The recall would only apply to ZR1's built up to May 31, 2018 NOT 2019.

Yeah it affected my car that I picked up last May. The issue is that if the car sees over 1.8g it assumes there is a sensor issue and it silently disables the airbag. Turns out these beasts can exceed 1,8Gs the software change just increases that threshold. I had the update done to my car and when I wrecked it the airbags went off so all good.

I picked up my car in September of 2018, and I just put the VIN into the GM Recall website and it shows nothing.

Well, sort of, mostly I guess.
