"We had our first recall for the Corvette issued and repaired in a little over a week through an over-the-air update. Upon starting the Corvette one morning, the entertainment system reported an open recall, showing the recall number and potential problem. It appears that somehow Corvette owners were accidentally popping the front trunk (or frunk) and driving around while ignoring the notification that the frunk was unlatched."
"Upon starting the Corvette today, I was greeted by an over-the-air update that seeks to fix the problem. The solution? Limiting vehicle speed to 26 mph when the frunk is open and make it harder to accidentally open the frunk with the key fob.
The update process was just as simple as we've experienced in the Teslas we've owned. Simply start the update, turn the Corvette off, and walk away. Pretty nifty." — Carlos Lago, manager, feature content
