The inaugural year for the first production mid-engine Corvette hasn’t exactly been a smooth one for Chevrolet. The 2020 ‘Vette debuted in grand fashion almost a year ago to the day and immediately took the world by storm, but production delays and quality issues have been a fact of life for C8 Corvette buyers ever since.
The most recent issue to arise – literally – is the C8’s electrically controlled front trunk, or frunk as such things are commonly known. We reported back on July 9 that complaints from two C8 Corvette owners had been logged with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), claiming the frunk opened unexpectedly and with no warning. Since then, three additional complaints have been reported, bringing the total to five.
