2023 Corvette Stingray Convertible Key Safety Features

The C8 Corvette Convertible won't be winning any safety awards, but the basics are in place. There are four airbags in play, including seat-mounted side-impact head/thorax airbags, an HD rearview camera - upgraded to front and rear from the 2LT - and the obligatory traction and stability control. Driver assistance features on the base model include rear park assist, while 2LT and 3LT cars add rear cross-traffic alert and side blind-zone alert.

2023 Corvette Stingray Convertible Reliability

There were a few teething issues in its debut year, with four recalls noted in 2020 - these issues were for seatbelt retractors that didn't lock, the hood inadvertently opening, the front trunk release not working, and sensor contamination in electronic brake boost. These issues were resolved for 2021, but two recalls were issued nonetheless: rear half-shaft assemblies were missing ball bearings and there was a potential malfunction on the airbag light. The half-shaft issue carried over for 2022, but at the time of writing, all problems were taken care of as no recalls were available for 2023 models.

The Corvette Convertible is covered by a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, a five-year/100,000-mile drivetrain warranty, and a one-year/one-visit maintenance plan.
