2019 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe Safety and Reliability

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe Reliability Rating

2019 Corvette Stingray Coupe Safety

For such a popular sports car, it should come as a surprise to many that neither the NHTSA or IIHS has tested the Corvette Stingray. Despite the lack of official ratings, the Corvette benefits from Chevrolet's thorough experience in car building and years of research into structural integrity.

2019 Corvette Stingray Coupe Key Safety Features

Standard safety features on the Corvette Stingray are lacking, to say the least. Chevrolet has fitted the 2019 Stingray with standard traction control, a rearview camera with wide view, an anti-theft alarm system, run-flat tires, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Frontal and side-impact airbags for the driver and passenger wrap up the safety features list. The fact that there are no active safety features to be found, not even on the options list, comes as quite a shock, and reaffirms the fact that the Corvette Stingray is starting to fall behind the rest of the pack in terms of technology and safety features. In terms of post-crash protection, OnStar automatically connects you to emergency services in the event of a crash.

2019 Corvette Stingray Coupe Reliability

Since the launch of the C7 Corvette in 2014, there have been numerous recalls ranging from paint and trim issues to airbag and other safety system malfunctions. Chevrolet has issued three recalls since 2017. In 2017 there were two recalls, the first was due to the front airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioner failing to function during an accident. The second was issued for specific 2017 Corvette models where the power steering system could fail, causing steering issues. In 2019 there was one recall issued that affected cars produced that same year. The recall was issued due to an issue where hard braking or acceleration could deactivate the airbags. Mechanically, the Corvette has experienced very few problems and has proven to be a reliable everyday sports car. Chevrolet backs the Corvette Stingray with a standard three-year/36,000 mile warranty that includes corrosion cover, a five-year/60,000 mile drivetrain, and roadside assistance warranty, a one-year/two-visit maintenance warranty and six years worth of rust-through protection.
