Recall Up Date: 2010-2012 Chevrolet Colorado & GMC Canyon

The Problem: 2010-2012 Chevrolet Colorados and 2010-2012 GMC Canyons made from November 9, 2009 through August 28, 2012 may have a hood that’s missing the secondary hood latch. If the primary hood latch is not engaged and there is no secondary latch, the hood could open unexpectedly, potentially leading to a crash if the driver’s visibility is reduced.

The Fix: GM will instruct owners to inspect their trucks to see if they have a secondary hood latch. Those not comfortable with the inspection can contact a dealer to check. If the latch is missing, dealers will replace the hood — the recall is scheduled to begin on January 17, 2013. Chevrolet owners can call 1-800-630-2438 and GMC owners 1-866-996-9463 for more information.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 118,800 trucks in the U.S., 15,264 in Canada, 7492 in Mexico, and about 4000 in other countries.
