Here are the recalls for the week:
2019 Kia Forte: Dealers will inspect the left front axle driveshaft for a heat treatment verification code and replace it if the code is missing, for free.
2020 Chevrolet Corvette: Dealers will update the software in the vehicle’s body control module to allow the front trunk compartment release switch to always work. Owners also may allow the car to be remedied via an over-the-air software update. Either repair will be done for free.
You can find out if your car has a past recall by going to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls and inputting your VIN number.
