I needed to fold my seat forward for something and wound up slicing my finger open doing so. The seatback latches have a sharp edge on them. If you grab the latch where you are supposed to grab the latch, you won't cut yourself. If you grab it too low, you probably will. The arrow in the photo points to the sharp edge on the latch. Just a heads up. :cheers:

How was that allowed to happen? The human factors/industrial design/usability teams were asleep at the wheel on that one! I can't believe they didn't round that edge off so it would not cut. DUH!

By the way, Jeremy, I think the engineering design and development teams at Corvette would love to get this feedback. If you could pass it on to them through Chevy Customer Care and have them direct it to the design/development teams, they probably would fix it by the 2016 models.

I'll let them know. :)

TNX I'm going to locate it and if it looks like your photo and appears to be accessible enough to do what you have described, I will take a file to mine also..
I examined mine and the edge of the lever is sharp but I think it may be OK as is. Especially now that I know about it. I don't plan to do anything about it.
