problem #6

Aug 122007

Corvette 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 0 miles
While traveling on trips 21/2 hours or more my low fuel light comes on and it appears to be out of gas, the indicator shows empty, but it is not. After reporting to the Chevrolet dealerships service manager he informed me that this was a technical issue already noted but not a recall issue yet. I was told it was a sensor. I fill this needs to be a recall on this issue, we have spoken to other Corvette owners and they are having the same problem with their vette. Does this warrant a recall?

problem #5

Feb 012000


  • 5,000 miles
When driving for about an hour the alarm went off, and fuel gauge dropped to zero, as if the vehicle did not have gas in it. It happened intermittently. However, consumer consulted with Chrysler. They stated that it was not a safety defect, and that nothing would be done about it. However, the problem continued.

  • Automatic transmission

Fuel gauge inaccuracy. I have to depend on the miles left until tank has an empty gauge. When all fuel gauges get to about 1/4 tank (on the console and the hood), it will drop to empty setting off low fuel alarms. Gauge has been repaired 3 times and continues to have the problem.

problem #1

Sep 232002

Corvette 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,695 miles
Fuel gauge inaccuracy. When fuel gauge gets to about 1/4 tank, it will drop to empty setting off low fuel alarms. Gauge was repaired 9/24/02. Again on 11/29/02 it happened again. The same components (sending units) were replaced for the second time. I am a member of corvetteforum.com and see this problem has been on going since 1997 when the C-5 Corvette was introduced. It is still happening on the 2003 models with one owner having it occur at 800 miles on a 2003 model. Can't get Chevrolet to repair the problem so it won't come back. Chevrolet doesn't seem to have a fix for the problem after 7 years of building the C-5! I need some help in getting this issue resolved before my warranty expires in April 2003.
