CONDITION

General Motors has decided that certain 2001 Chevrolet Corvette model vehicles, equipped with a 5.7L (RPO LS6 - VIN Code S) engine, were built with an incorrect vehicle emission control label. The label shows an incorrect emission vacuum hose routing schematic.

CORRECTION - U.S.

A new vehicle emission control label needs to be installed on the left front wheel well. Since a new label can be easily installed, and to reduce customer inconvenience, the label will be sent with installation instructions directly to customers of record. Customers may install the label on the left front wheel well. However, if they desire, they may bring the label to their dealer for installation at no charge at any time until August 31, 2001.

CORRECTION - CANADA

Dealers are to install a new vehicle emission control label on the left front wheel well as shown in the illustration. This will be performed at no charge to the customer until August 31, 2001.

VEHICLES INVOLVED

Involved are certain 2001 Chevrolet Corvette model vehicles equipped with 5.7L engine (RPO LS6 - VIN Code S) and built within these VIN breakpoints:

YEAR  -  DIVISION  -  MODEL  -  PLANT  -  FROM  -  THROUGH
2001 - Chevrolet - Corvette - Bowling Green - 15100001 - 15112120

IMPORTANT: Dealers should confirm vehicle eligibility through GMVIS (GM Vehicle Inquiry System) or GM Access Screen (Canada only) prior to beginning campaign repairs. [Not all vehicles within the above breakpoints may be involved.]

Involved vehicles have been identified by Vehicle Identification Number. Computer listings containing the complete Vehicle Identification Number, customer name and address data have been prepared, and are being furnished to involved dealers with the campaign bulletin. The customer name and address data furnished will enable dealers to follow up with customers involved in this campaign. Any dealer not receiving a computer listing with the campaign bulletin has no involved vehicles currently assigned.

These dealer listings may contain customer names and addresses obtained from Motor Vehicle Registration Records. The use of such motor vehicle registration data for any other purpose is a violation of law in several states/provinces/countries. Accordingly, you are urged to limit the use of this listing to the follow-up necessary to complete this campaign.

Dealer mailing will begin on February 14, 2001.
Owner mailing will begin on February 21, 2001.
