For $50k, Your Roof Shouldn't Fly Off


Unbelievable. That's what a lot of folks are saying. You spend $50,000 for a Corvette, and the roof is held on with glue. Glue? Yeah, glue. And apparently it isn't even good glue.

GM has announced a recall of some 30,000 of the 2005 and 2006 sports cars because the glue doesn't hold the roof on. You can read more about it here.

Okay, maybe they glued parts on with the Yugo back in the 1980's, but a Corvette? That one's hard to understand.

Apparently nearly two dozen of the roofs have come off completely and several hundred instances of the "separation" have been reported since it the rumors began a few months ago. Amazingly, GM's fix was apparently to tell their dealers to glue the roof back on again!

And just where were the quality control inspectors? Hey, I've got an idea: let's all send them a case of Gorilla Glue! With enough glue they won't have to use any bolts at all!
