For the last eight years, GM has been paying for a specific fuel leak repair. Chevrolet Corvette models built between 2007 and 2013 have a leaky left-hand fuel pump module flange. Hundreds of Corvette owners filed complaints with the NHTSA, and some continue to do so. The repair, fuel pump model replacement, was previously paid for by GM at no cost to the vehicle owner.

The service bulletin, GM’s 15682 – Primary Tank Module Flange Fuel and Vapor Leaks, covers 2007-2013 Chevrolet Corvette models through 120,000 miles or 10 years from the date the car was originally placed in service. The bulletin specifies that whichever condition arrives first is the cutoff.

This means that in 2024, 2013 models, the last of the flagged years, are no longer covered.

Many Corvette owners have yet to hit the 120,000-mile mark since these cars aren’t driven daily. Some, like 2008 model year owners, have recently had active fuel leaks and are being told they’ll have to pay out of pocket for repairs. Their coverage ended after 2018. One owner filed an NHTSA complaint just this month, citing the bulletin after researching the issue. Based on the year model, his repairs likely won’t be paid for.

The bulletin is not a recall, so it can have a set deadline for free repair or repair reimbursements. The reimbursement deadline was back in 2017. 

If you’re in the market for a used Corvette, be aware of this bulletin and confirm whether repairs were made during the coverage window before bringing a 2007-2013 home.
