Updated on Author: Brian Jones | Reviewer: Sergei Lemberg

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette is a sports car that is now part of the 8th generation. Every generation is marked by a different number, so the 2023 Corvette is known as the C8. The Corvette was first introduced in 1953, making this the 70th anniversary of its debut. With so many models on the road, this vehicle has become one of the most recognized on America’s streets.

In 2022, Chevrolet sold 37,510 Corvette models. This was 4,469 more than the number sold in 2021, showing a 13.53% increase.

Most Common Problems with the 2023 Chevy Corvette

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette has gained a lot of attention for being sporty and fast. It’s meant to inspire the race car driver inside of every owner, and it seems to hit that mark. Yet, there are several complaints that shouldn’t be considered normal on a car of this magnitude. Drivers are complaining about severe electrical system issues, a malfunctioning powertrain and a structure that may not be made up to normal Corvette standards.

Problems with the Electrical System

  • Intermittent Reverse Camera: Several owners have complained about the reverse camera malfunctioning. While it may turn on when the Corvette first starts up, getting it to keep working can be a challenge. Even with cars that are only a week old, the display fails.
  • Front Camera Failure: In addition to the rear camera, the front device is also failing. One owner had the car for 72 hours and put 91 miles on the odometer before the front display went out. The discouraging aspect is that no one has been available at the dealership to repair the problem.
  • Backward Lights: Corvettes come with daytime driving lights and normal headlights. Yet, some drivers are finding that they are turning on at the wrong time. For example, the daytime driving lights are illuminating at night, while the headlights run during the day. While there are many people having this issue, Chevy has yet to determine the fix.

Structural Issues

  • Faulty Hood Latch: The hood can open on its own and fly up to the windshield. This defect causes a lack of visibility to the extent that a serious crash can occur.
  • Warped Dash: The interior of the Corvette has a dash that falls apart prematurely. This problem seems to be most prevalent with the 3LT trim and the leather dash. The only fix is to replace the entire dash, which most new car owners aren’t looking forward to.

Powertrain Problems

  • Malfunctioning Transmission: The transmission can fail to shift out of Reverse. For one owner, this problem occurred after only 812 miles. When this defect happens, the gear indicator light flashes and the Service Transmission light comes on the dashboard. With these issues, the transmission may sporadically engage but continues to exhibit the same problem.
  • Transmission Replacement Required: If transmission issues can’t be repaired, the transmission needs to be replaced. Sadly, this has happened to some owners with only 3,000 miles on the odometer. When a manufacturer replaces the transmission under warranty, they don’t need to put a new one in either. Therefore, these owners could be receiving a rebuilt or remanufactured transmission in their new sports car.

2023 Corvette Recalls

At this time, Chevy hasn’t issued any recalls on the 2023 Corvette, even though it should have several by now. With all of the major complaints occurring, we foresee some recalls coming down the pipeline. The transmission issues alone should be part of a recall, along with the defective camera systems that are dangerous for drivers. The hood opening on its own is also a serious safety concern that can’t be neglected any further. For the amount of money spent on these sports cars, customers deserve more.
