GM Recalls 118,000 Canyon and Colorado Pickups

Trucks may be missing their secondary hood latch

The number of major automotive recalls over the last several months has grown significantly. General Motors has announced a recall that covers 118,000 of its small pickup trucks in the Colorado and Canyon lines. The pickups covered in the recall are from the 2010 through 2012 model years.

The trucks were manufactured between November 9, 2009 in August 28, 2012. The reason for the recall was that the vehicles fail to comply with requirements for federal statute having to do with the hood latch system. In a nutshell, the hood may be missing its secondary latch.

The missing latch means that if the primary latch on the hood that fails it could blow up leading to an accident. General Motors says it plans notifying owners and instruct them to inspect their vehicles for the secondary hood latch. Any vehicles missing the latch will be repaired free of charge.

Jul 29 2014 11:11am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The now defunct automotive arm of Suzuki is recalling 26,000 cars south of the border over an issue with daytime running light modules.

2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty Power Stroke

Jul 29 2014 11:11am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Truck, Work, Ford, First Drives What weighs 30,000 pounds? Big Ben's Westminster bell. A navy ship anchor. Or as we found out during our first drive program for the 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty, seven pallets of cinder blocks loaded onto a dual-axle gooseneck trailer. The test was part of a raft of towing demonstrations that showcased the new Super Duty's impressive tug capacity, which maxes out at 32,100 pounds. That's 1,200 more than its ...

Polaris Slingshot hits the road on all three wheels [w/videos]

Filed under: Performance, Videos, MISC If there's one thing that the likes of Morgan and Campagna have taught us, it's that a three-wheeled roadster can be one heck of a fun ride, bringing together the best elements of a motorbike and a sports car (albeit with none of the practicality). And now they've got a new challenger on their hands in the form of the Slingshot. The Polaris Slingshot has been on ...

How We’d Spec It: The Perfect GMC Sierra 1500 Denali

Jul 25 2014 4:44pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

This probably won’t surprise anyone, but we have a number of racers, track-day junkies, and vintage-car owners on staff, so tow vehicles are highly prized around our office. While there are many fine trucks suited to such tasks, Chevrolet’s Silverado won our most recent pickup truck comparison test, making it our top choice in the segment. But we’re slightly vain, so naturally we settled upon that ...

2016 Chevrolet Malibu Spy Photos: Bigger, Sleeker, and without the Camaro Taillights

Jul 25 2014 3:51pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

What It Is: The next-generation Chevrolet Malibu mid-size sedan buried under a pile of black tarps. The pictures nevertheless have a tale to tell, starting with the clear indication that the car will grow. More specifically, the car appears to have stretched in the rear door area, which indicates that Chevy is bent on rectifying its rear-seat legroom deficit. It’s been a major sore spot for buyers since the Malibu was placed on the shorter version of GM’s Epsilon platform back in 2013. Th ...
