Chevy recalling 2019 Corvette ZR1 as airbags may not deploy

Chevrolet is recalling hundreds of its Corvette ZR1 due to a risk that the air bags may not deploy, according to Cars.com .

About 490 ZR1s are being recalled, according to Cars.com.

According to the website, hard braking or acceleration could cause the diagnostic module in the vehicle to enter what is called a fault state. If that happens, the module won't provide crash-sensing or deploy the airbags in the event of a crash.

Those with the affected vehicles can call the automaker at 800-222-1020 or check their VIN on the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration website . Dealers will reprogram the sensing diagnostic module for free.

The ZR1 features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine with a top track speed of 212 mph. It has an available 755 horsepower and 715-foot-pounds of torque. The base price starts at more than $120,000.
