General Motors is recalling approximately 22.000 Chevrolet Corvettes because of faulty roofs that can cause leaking, according to a statement by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recalled models include the 2005-2007 Corvettes with detachable roofs and the 2006-2007 Corvette Z06s. According to the recall, an adhesive problem between the roof panel and the frame could cause them to separate, completely detach and possible become a projectile while driving, causing damage or injury to other vehicles or people.

Dealers will replace the faulty roof panels with a new design free for anyone with any of the recalled models. The recall starts in January 2010. Owners are being encouraged to call Chevrolet or visit the official GM’s Website. [GMOwnerCenter via Inquisitr]
