2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Long-Term Road Test


2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Second Scheduled Service

March 10, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Well that didn't take long. On January 13, we posted about our first service, scheduled for 7,500 miles, for our long term 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray.

Already the car is over 15,000 miles and calling for its second service. Looks like we like driving this car. Well, most of the time.

Once again we called on Bunnin Chevrolet in Culver City to handle the service. In part because they did a fine job last time and in part because they're the only game in town for Chevy service right now. At least without having to drive out of the county. The sales portion of the dealership is currently under construction. It was quite small and dark before. Service was handled out of this lovely trailer.

Thanks to Chevy's free-service plane (2 years or 4 services, whichever comes first), there was no charge and we got the car in just a few hours.

We did mention the brake jutter and asked them to take a look. They did a test drive and reported that they didn't notice it. Perhaps we need to take them out next time and show them how hard Corvette brakes can be used...

    Think you mean "judder," not "jutter." And rather than go back and forth with the "unable to reproduce" BS with a dealer, just put the car up on your lift, remove the wheels, remove and foreign material from between the mating faces on the wheels, hubs and rotors, and retorque.

    idiot dealer. I usually mark the exact mileage and when they say they test drove it to duplicate a reported issue, and they don't, I can tell. One denied not driving it--last trip to that dealer. Current dealer test drives before and after fixes to make sure the car is road ready.

    Good grief if the dealer isn't going to help you then step out of the cubical go to the garage and use the damn two post and fix the problem yourselves.

  • Any chance they would let you take the writer or a tech for a ride in the car to show them the brake problem? I was impressed with our local Toyota dealer when I stopped in with my new truck to ask about the way it was running. They typed up my basic info and the writer grabbed a tech for me to take for a drive with it to show him right away.
