Condition/Concern:

This is to announce a temporary program for 2009 Z06 and ZR1 Corvettes in the U.S.A. with major engine failures. In an effort to gain product knowledge quicker, Chevrolet would like to provide the opportunity for the customer to allow their Z06 or ZR1 Corvette to be picked up by special carrier and returned to the Bowling Green Assembly Plant to have the engine exchanged.

If the customer agrees, General Motors will arrange to have a complete engine sent directly to the assembly plant. A specialized repair crew will exchange the engine, complete a diagnostic review, ensure all of the codes are cleared, and run the vehicle through the final assembly check. Once completed, the vehicle will be returned to the dealership on the first available carrier. Bowling Green Assembly anticipates the entire process should be completed in approximately 10 working days.

Recommendation/Instructions:

If engine replacement is necessary, please review the opportunity above with the customer to see whether they would like to have your dealership replace their engine, or at Bowling Green Assembly Plant.
