DETROIT General Motors has issued two stop-delivery orders to its dealers covering 2,800 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray cars for problems with the driver airbag and parking brake cables.

GM has not "publicly issued a recall on the 2015 Corvette," GM spokesman Alan Adler told Edmunds on Friday.

The airbag stop-delivery order involves approximately 2,000 2015 Corvettes.

"In an effort to deal with quality issues quickly and completely, General Motors has told Chevrolet dealers to stop delivery of approximately 2,000 2015 Corvettes to fix the driver's airbag," a GM statement said. "GM also has temporarily stopped shipment of the cars from the plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

"The cars are being inspected for a suspect part that attaches the airbag to the steering wheel."

Separately, another 800 Corvettes — most of them at dealerships — are on hold because they may have been built with only one of the rear parking brake cables fully seated and engaged, according to the GM statement.

"The part must be inspected to assure the parking brake is operating on both brake drums," the automaker said.

Edmunds says: Potential Corvette buyers may not be able to get their hands on the car until these problems are fixed.
