According to Detroit News report, the probation commenced after NHTSA received 30 complaints from Corvette C6 owners reporting a loss of low-beam headlights while driving at night. "The loss of illumination impairs the driver's ability to see the roadway," the NHTSA said, adding that the malfunction could increase the chances of a crash.

Some complaints also claim the problem is intermittent and that the low-beam headlights started working properly after a period of time. Some of them said the low beams return after the vehicle has been park for a while. However, the high-beam headlights and fog lights aren’t affected by this issue, the NHTSA said.

While the sixth-generation is under investigation, with a possible Chevrolet recall underway, the American company is working on the 2014 Corvette Stingray, which is set to arrive in dealerships in Q3.
